Axon cladding

Vertical wall panels for a classic tongue and groove finish.

Provides rich texture and a vertical pattern to raise the roof.

Bring drama and detail to your walls with vertical lines.

Creating a strong visual impact for your building is easier than ever with Scyon Axon cladding. Easy to install, robust and versatile, Axon is the perfect antidote to boring walls. The vertical grooves complement classic and modern building designs to create stand out facades, and bring texture and interest to outdoor rooms.

Choose vertical lines for more height and impact.

Contemporary building designs make their strongest impact with line and form.  Used well, these elements give spaces and surfaces a sense of energy, and harmony. Vertical lines can be an important architectural detail for many buildings, making roof heights appear more elevated or bringing variety and textural interest to external walls .

Use Axon to wrap an entire house for a beachy feel or mix it up with other wall materials and colours to get a distinctive, modern look. It's made from ScyonTM so you can choose any colour, dark or light, for your Axon finish as it will resist shrinking, swelling and cracking to hold paint longer than wood can.

Play around with cool and warm finishes

Cool whites and greys are popular choices for a timeless, neutral palette for your walls. If you're looking for a rustic look or a contrasting, warmer finish, Axon 133mm cladding is available in a wood grain. Just like timber, Axon can be stained in a colour of your choice, but won't fade to grey in the sunlight as wood does.  

This beach house in Curl Curl on Sydney's Northern Beaches uses Axon cladding on the balcony to contrast with the strong horizontal lines of Linea cladding on the external walls.

A versatile solution for external details and internal walls.

Axon can be cut and adapted to bring texture to eaves and soffits or create ceiling detail for your covered oudoor room or deck. Designed to fit common wall frame sizes, Axon makes perfect sense as an aesthetic and water-resistant alternative to plasterboard in internal spaces such as laundries, bathrooms and high traffic areas.
