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

We recommend using the appropriate tools for cutting and drilling Cedral weatherboards.

Circular saw: saw blade with carbide teeth Bosch T141 HM type

Hand-held circular saw: diamond saw blade with Leitz fibre-cement tab

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

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

The maximum spacing between beams is 60 0mm.

7. Fixing

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

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