Klasse’s new external sheathing board flies through stringent BBA testing.

Klasse’s brand new external sheathing board has recently been subject to stringent British Board of Agrément (BBA) testing, we are now very pleased to announce that we have been awarded our BBA Certificate, Number 22/6085 for the

Klasse Outwear External Sheathing Board. (Available to view at the end of this document)

The biggest challenge when looking to specify materials for a construction project is ensuring that the product selected has been tested, assessed, and certified as suitable for use within the project framework. BBA Certification proves our sheathing board not only meets industry standards and is accepted and covered by NHBC warranties but that it has also undergone independent third-party testing.


External sheathing boards are a new addition to the Klasse product range; We understand how challenging cement boards can be. As an alternative, Klasse Outwear offers a lighter gypsum board ensuring faster installation and a safer working environment. Designed to transform the building envelope construction, Klasse Outwear’s bright green appearance makes it stand out on site and its high-density design allows for easy handling, cutting and installation minimising the use of power tools and making a safer working environment for installers. A recent testimonial provided by an installer on a project in Bournemouth confirmed that our customers agree: “This product, in my opinion, is far superior to any cement particle board I’ve used before in all aspects, so much easier to work with in terms of the cutting, fixing, lifting etc. I also LOVE the colour!” CSW Cladding Ltd.


Construction projects require robust external sheathing boards, Klasse Outwear has a higher density to mitigate fire, wind, and installation damage to ensure you deliver a safe and on-time project. Our external sheathing board has been extensively tested throughout its development and has been rated Euroclass A1, fully non-combustible, and suitable for structures over 18m. Outwear also boasts impressive Through Wall System testing results, meeting 90 minutes in both directions, under test standard BS EN 1364-1:2015.
