When fixing wood components together, or to other materials, there are many different methods to consider, from standard to specialist fixings and it is important to select the correct type for your cladding and decking. Fixings are designed for specific end uses for both aesthetic reasons and strength. For example, exterior cladding using Cedar and Siberian Larch requires stainless steel fixings e.g. annular ring shanks. The right grade of stainless steel will also vary depending on various factors including distance from coastal areas. Without the appropriate fixing you run the risk of failure – staining, corrosion of fixings etc.
The following factors need to be considered when selecting fixings:
Insect mesh is required to cover all cavities around cladding and decking. It aims to restrict insects and rodents from entering and living in cavities.
