7 steps for successful installation

1. Storage

1. Storage

Store horizontally on a flat surface. Protect the boards from the weather using sheets or store them somewhere dry.

2. Handling

2. Handling

The weatherboards should be carried by two people, holding them by the edge.

When transporting Cedral Click on pallets, always position the weatherboards tongue against tongue and groove against groove.

3. Planning

3. Planning

Plan your work upfront in order to ensure the best possible site organisation.

We also recommend consulting your local town planning regulations before you start working to ensure you have the necessary permits and comply with all requirements.

Follow both the installation and safety instructions.

4. Implementation

4. Implementation

We recommend using the appropriate tools for cutting and drilling Cedral weatherboards.
Circular saw: saw blade with carbide teeth 
Hand-held circular saw: diamond saw blade

In all cases, sawing and drilling must be done in a dry place and the slat board must be supported. Get rid of sawing and drilling dust straightaway. Remove minor dirt with a gentle household detergent and rinse with clean water.

5. Supporting structure

5. Supporting structure

The wooden vertical support beams have a minimum 65 x 50mm section for installation with a bracket and 65 x 30mm if installed directly on a support.

The maximum spacing between beams is 600mm.

6. Ventilation

6. Ventilation

In all cases, ensure a ventilated space of 30mm minimum and provide a 10mm/m minimum ventilation hole top and bottom.

7. Fixing

7. Fixing

Start at the bottom of the facade by installing a Cedral starting profile and the required aluminium profiles. The starting profile is placed perfectly level and attached with appropriate stainless steel countersunk screws which do not interfere with installing the first Cedral slat board.

Attach Cedral Click with a Click clip laid flat on the beam.
Screw Cedral Lap to the beam with an overlap of 30mm.
