FASTENERS & FIXING
Quattro TCS Cladding is installed over a solid cavity system (make reference to Acceptable Solution E2 and the New Zealand Building Code for cavity requirements). Steelformers recommended fixing process is:
45x45mm H3.1 dressed timber battens are fixed (vertically) along the horizontal cavity in accordance with the New Zealand Building Code. Spacings of the battens are determined by the cladding pan width.
Each TCS Cladding panel is screw fixed (using a stainless steel countersunk screw at 400mm centres) through each 26mm upstand and into the timber batten
The custom made cap flashing is fitted over the top of the batten and pop riveted (at 400mm centres) to the upstands
For additional securing of the upstands, Steelformers recommends using a bead of silicone along each cavity batten
TIP: Steelformers recommends nog spacing at 450mm centres in all wind zones, plus having a row of fixings along the line of the top and bottom of the cladding panel. Depending on eaves construction, a row of nogs may be required at the eaves soffit line to fix into.
