Why Choose Cement Board over Wood for Furniture?

When we talk about material for furniture, we are always familiar with plywood.

But Today, In an era where durability, versatility, and environmental impact are paramount considerations in furniture selection, Fibre cement board stands out as a versatile and sustainable option.

In this blog, we’ll uncover the numerous advantages that make fibre cement board the preferred choice.


Durability is an important factor to consider when you plan to choose materials for furniture. Fibre cement board is naturally resistant to rot, fungus, insects, water and fire, making it an excellent choice for long-lasting furniture, unlike wood which requires regular maintenance and is prone to damage from moisture and pests.

Environmentally Friendly

Wooden furniture contains harmful chemicals like VOCs, These chemicals can contribute to indoor air pollution and may cause respiratory issues, headaches, and other health problems, especially in poorly ventilated spaces. On the other hand Fibre Cement board does not contain any harmful chemicals, making safer and healthier indoor environment.

Moisture resistant

Wooden is hygroscopic, meaning it absorbs and releases moisture from its surroundings. When wooden furniture is exposed to a high level of moisture, it can swell, warp or even rot over time, leading to damage to furniture.

On other hand, fibre cement board is resistant to moisture-related issues like warping or rotting. It remains unaffected by changes in humidity, making it a more reliable choice for bathrooms, kitchens or outdoor spaces.

Fire resistant

Wooden is combustible, meaning it can easily catch fire and burn when exposed to fire. Additionally, it contains harmful chemicals that further fuelling the fire and release harmful gases.  On other hand, fibre cement board is non-combustible and offers inherent fire resistance. In any fire event, cement furniture can help stop the spread of flames and provide extra protection to your home.
