How to fix
VTG1, VTG2 – face fix only. One per fixing board / batten.
VTG3, VTG4A, VTG5A, VTG6 – Hidden nail or face fix. One per fixing board / batten.
A gap of 2mm should be left between each board.
Begin at the bottom, ensuring that the first board is level. Orientate the board so that tongue edge is facing upwards. Use a spacer to create a 2mm expansion gap between boards. Fix each board with a single nail at each batten point. Join consecutive board ends over a batten. VTG1 and VTG2 are designed to be nailed through the face of the board. VTG3 and VTG6 can be nailed through the face or diagonally through the tongue to create a hidden fixing.
Begin at one corner, with the tongue facing away, ensuring that the first board is vertical. Nail as with the horizontal attachment.
