Application

  • To be applied in the principles of a ventilated rainscreen.
  • For external applications where durability and performance in a range of climates is required.

Install WeatherClad® with a minimum 38 mm ventilated cavity to reverse of planks. Timber battens should have a minimum dimension of 38 mm deep x 38 mm wide and be positioned at maximum span of 600 mm. Fixings are generally concealed as planks should overlap by approximately 30 mm to the plank below. These principles ensure that the system is ventilated to reduce the risk of moisture penetration into the building.
