The New Aspyre Collection from James Hardie Blends High Design and Durability at IBS 2018

The collection pairs a new level of creative expression and the unmatched performance of James Hardie fiber cement products

ORLANDO, Fla. (Jan. 2, 2018) — Custom builders and architects no longer have to sacrifice durability for beauty, thanks to the newly-launched Aspyre Collection from James Hardie™. The luxury collection, which will be introduced at the International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Florida, combines two product lines that can be used individually or in combination to provide industry professionals with unlimited design possibilities that capture their unique visions.
 
To create the Aspyre Collection, James Hardie paired the thick distinctive profiles of Artisan® siding with the smooth, geometric Reveal® Panel System, allowing architects and builders to create high-performing designs that range from traditional to ultra-modern. This diverse portfolio of products will be available nationally toward the end of 2018.
 
The wide assortment of textures, profiles and products included in the Aspyre Collection gives design professionals who work with James Hardie the power to build trusted reputations by creating lasting, stand-out projects. With the Aspyre Collection, which is as durable and high performing as it is aesthetically impressive, builders and architects can elevate their designs to achieve any vision from traditional to contemporary.
 
“The bold, modern aesthetic of Reveal and the authentic, milled profiles of Artisan siding gives design professionals the ability to create completely unique projects that fuse high design with uncompromising performance,” said Sean Gadd, chief marketing officer at James Hardie Building Products. “This collection arms architects and custom builders with the confidence that they’re giving their customers the very best the industry has to offer.”
 
Show attendees can see the new collection at the James Hardie booth (W3416) from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Jan. 9 – 11. Architects and builders can also learn more by visiting www.aspyredesign.com. More details on the two product lines that make up the Aspyre Collection can be found below:
 
  • The 5/8-inch thick Artisan siding profiles casts deep, gorgeous shadow lines to create strong horizontal and vertical definition. Architects and builders have the ability to miter corners to add a level of sophistication to any design. With Artisan siding, homeowners, builders and architects can expect the uncompromising performance and durability of fiber cement with the traditional look of cedar.

    Artisan siding features lower profile seams through lap and Lock Joint systems as well as six distinct profiles:
    Artisan V-Groove Siding
    Artisan Shiplap Siding
    Artisan Lap Siding
    Artisan Square Channel Siding
    Artisan Bevel Channel Siding
    Artisan Beaded Lap Siding

     
  • The Reveal Panel System is a complete, customizable system of commercial-grade panels, trims and fasteners, offering clean, simple lines to give homes a modern aesthetic.

Reveal panels can be installed horizontally or vertically, and can be cut to size on-site, providing further design flexibility. The Reveal Panel System offers an integrated system of panels, exposed or counter-sunk fasteners and two different trim profiles: Reveal Recess and Surround trim. Reveal Recess trim accentuates deep channels while Surround trim adds dimension and emphasizes height for an industrial aesthetic.
