Framing and Fixing

Framing: 

 SHERA Plank can be fixed to both timber frames (minimum size 1.5 x 3 inch) or steel frames (thickness between 0.55 and 1.6 mm). Framing must be selected to provide sufficient strength to support the SHERA Plank siding.

 

Fixing: 

Planks can be fastened with both nails or screws. It can be nailed directly to timber supports with round wire nails. When using metal screws, the size and length of the screw will be dependent on the thickness of the plank and the gauge of framing. Pre-drilling the plank is a must unless self-embedding, self-drilling head screws such as SHERA FIX-W32G8 are preferred.

Installation
