James Hardie provides siding products that are Engineered for Climate®. We call this The HardieZone System. It provides siding with specific performance attributes relative to the climate where the product is being used. As a result, James Hardie gives you the ability to put the optimum siding on a project regardless of your location.
We based The HardieZone System on the eight individual climatic variables that primarily affect long-term performance of siding. Using these factors we arrived at ten distinct climatic zones. Though different, we found common variables in certain regions, allowing us to engineer the HZ5® product line for zones 1 through 5 and the HZ10® product line for zones 6 through 10.
