Before you start installing your Cladco Fibre Cement Wall Cladding, it is important to ensure you have all the parts necessary. Cladco Perforated Closure is essential for your Fibre Cement Wall Cladding project.
The Closures have been manufactured with small holes at even spaces to encourage airflow and ventilation while also preventing animal and debris access. Cladco Perforated Closures are designed to be installed at the base of the project. The ventilation gaps within the Closure, paired with the 38mm space between the Battens and the Boards, ensure your building has adequate airflow, preventing any moisture build-up. The Closure also protects your Fibre Cement Cladding Boards from any debris or insects.
Cladco Perforated Closures are manufactured using corrosion-resistant, durable, aluminium material for superior strength and long-lasting protection. Perforated Closures are supplied in 3m lengths with a 40mm width. Each Closure is manufactured with a 1mm thickness using corrosion-resistant aluminium material.
The Perforated Closure is an essential aspect of any Fibre Cement Wall Cladding project. Simply attach the Closures to the base of the Battens before installing the first Wall Cladding Board. Perforated Closures should also be fixed above any windows and doors where Fibre Cement Wall Cladding will be fitted, please see the installation guide for further information.
Please note it is recommended to leave a gap of 10mm between the Perforated Closure and the base of the Cladding installation to ensure a necessary gap between the bottom of the first Wall Cladding Board and the ground for airflow. You will also need to ensure the Perforated Closure is perfectly level before fixing to the wall, as the Cladco Fibre Cement Wall Cladding Starter Step will be fixed to the Perforated Closure. If your Closure is not fitted parallel, you may be at risk of having an unlevel Fibre Cement Wall Cladding installation.
