How to fix
Halflap cladding is fixed through the face of the board either by hand or with a nail gun. We don’t recommend first fix nail guns because the effect can be a bit untidy but it does work and it is quick.
Because cedar and Brimstone are stable, we recommend installing these with a second fix nail gun. This method is quick and almost invisible.
Begin at the bottom (or the corner if installing vertically), ensuring that the first board is level or straight. Orientate the board so that the shadow gap is facing you and lap that is adjacent to the wall is pointing in the direction of progression.
It is important to include an expansion gap of 2mm between boards.
Hand nailing or first fix nail gun through the face
Insert a single 50mm stainless steel nail located 25 – 30mm above the lower lap. Pre-drill if hand nailing.
Second fix nail gun
(This method is only for Cedar and Brimstone!)
Insert one 50mm stainless brad nail through the lap and one through the face 25 – 30mm above the lower lap. Put the nails in at opposing angles.
Treated softwood. 35mm thick x 50mm wide
400 – 600mm
50mm Stainless steel ring shank nail for hand nailing or first fix gun.
50mm Stainless steel brad nail for second fix nail gun.
When to fix
Year round. Ideally September to March
