Installation of wall linings onto steel stud

Eternit sidings can also be installed directly onto steel stud framing. The maximum centres for the framing should not exceed 600mm and should have a minimum width of 50mm. Installation should commence at the bottom of the wall and progressively move up towards the eaves. There should be a minimum 150mm gap between the bottom edge of the lowest sidings and ground level.

Fixings should consist of stainless steel screws minimum 4.5mm x 35mm in length. The overlap of adjacent sidings should not be less than 30mm. Vertical joints between the ends of adjacent sidings should be staggered in order to avoid coincident joints one above another. All framing should be soundly fixed in proper alignment and should conform to all local building regulations.
