Fitting and Usage

Installation & Usage of Coastline Shiplap Cladding

The following instructions are intended to provide an overview only; we always recommend that you refer to detailed fitting instructions.

Coastline composite cladding boards and their ancillary aluminium trims are design to simplify the installation process. These should be fixed to 38mm x 25mm timber wall battens, with a maximum vertical spacing of 500mm. Window reveals should be completed using Window Reveal Trim (CL009), Window Reveal Corrner Trim (CL008), Window Head Trim (CL003) and ripped down cladding board.

Once the window reveals are complete the Starter Bar (CL001) can be fixed to the underside of the walls vertical battens. External Corner Trim (CL005), Internal Corner Trim (CL006), Head Trim (CL002), Butt Joint (CL007) and End Closer (CL004) can each then be fitted.

All trims must be fitted before cladding board, to allow correct fixing of the trims.

Aluminium trims should be fixed to battens using 25mm stainless steel screws and will need to be notched out over the Starter Bar.

Capping board should be fixed using 25mm stainless steel nails, or 25mm stainless steel screws around the reveal.

Note: Coastline composite cladding is designed for use on buildings with a maximum of three storeys and at least 1m from boundaries. As with all building products, failure to install Coastline in accordance with manufacturers instructions will invalidate the product guarantee.
