Framing and Fixing

Framing: SHERA Splendid 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 Splendid Plank siding.

 

Fixing: SHERA Splendid Planks can be fastened with 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 thickness of the Plank and the gauge of framing. Pre-drilling the board is a must unless self-embedding, self-drilling head screws such as SHERA FIX-W32G8 are used.
