    Professional Application














Installation is arranged by the company under the supervision of trained and skilled technical experts, in a tradesman-like manner in conformity with the company's policy.
1.   Before commencement, a level is determined.
2.  2"x I" pinus battens, over the existing weatherboards or fibro, and are fixed through to the main frame structure. In using such strong battens it enables us to pack out, using stringlines to straighten walls where necessary. Steel starter strip is fastened over battens, from the base weatherboards, insuring strength and rigidity .
3.   The steel weatherboards then commence, using a specially designed clip fixed to the battens. This clip allows for any small ground movement. The next weatherboard is then fitted and pulled up tight, insuring a cyclone resistant fixing method.
4.   All necessary trims such as external corners, window trims, U-trim, J-trim, and eave-trim are all designed with a safety fold to ensure strength, and to seal and waterproof the total job.
5.   Tech screws are recommended for the application to steel frames, either through the top of the weatherboard or to the clip depending on the use of square edge or bull nose profiles.
