Application

  • All 90° vertical facades.
  • Load bearing structures covered with cladding rails.

Description

An economical kit of panels and flashings that can easily be installed on either timber battens or metal cladding rails. The system is fixed with screws or with a nail gun, resulting in the panels being held in place with no visible fasteners. Overlapping panels are 200 mm wide and have a depth of either 13 or 20 mm. They are installed horizontally and available in 3 m lengths.


The rails can be either softwood timber with a 50 mm supporting width or 40 mm wide metal rails (2 mm thick aluminium or 1.5 mm thick galvanized steel). A vented air space of at least 38 mm must be allowed for behind the panels.

 

VMZINC PLUS must be used on all non-vertical flashings if open gap soft boards are not being used.


Features and benefits:

  • Cost effective.
  • Concealed fastening.
  • Horizontal laying.


System build-up:

  • VMZINC overlapping panels.
  • Timber framing creating a vented 38 mm airspace.
  • VMZINC Membrane.
  • Insulation.
  • Supporting structure (blockwork or metal framing or other appropriate supporting structure).


Life Cycle Analysis (LCA):

VMZINC undertakes Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) tests on its products and publishes Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), such as BRE Environmental Profiles, available from our website www.vmzinc.co.uk and www.greenbooklive.com. These provide users with comprehensive, reliable and transparent information on relevant environmental characteristics. The information is also used by VMZINC as the basis for its eco-design approach.
