Flashings

Shadowclad aluminium flashings have been designed specifically for use with Shadowclad. Some of the flashings can be used with other cladding materials (Please check compatibility).

Flashings should be specified based on their:

  • Profile design to ensure weather-tightness
  • Durability
  • Aesthetics to compliment the cladding material for a quality look and feel
  • Consideration of surrounding materials to ensure compatibility
  • The environment where the building is located

Features and benefits

  • Profile design to ensure weather-tightness
  • Durability
  • Aesthetically compliments the cladding material for a quality look and feel
flashing

Shadowclad flashings are extruded from 6060-T5 alloy and have a minimum gauge of 1.4mm. The range includes internal and external angles, horizontal and inter-storey ‘Z’ flashings and a cavity base closure to prevent vermin from gaining entry to cavities behind the cladding. All horizontally installed flashings come in 3.600m lengths and vertically installed angles available in 2.440m and 2.745m lengths to match Shadowclad sheet length options.

For professional technical advice contact a qualified Carter Holt Harvey representative, visit www.chhpanels.com.au or obtain a copy of the Installation Guide.

Spacing’s (Recommended maximum for framing Plywood)

Frame spacing when sheets are fixed (for plywood under paint or thickness textured coating finishes on residential and office buildings)

 Thickness Along Framing Across Framing
 12 mm 600 mm 900 mm

Sheets are fixed along framing when applied vertically to studs and across framing when applied vertically to girts or horizontally to studs. It is Woodlogic’s recommendation that Shadowclad be fixed vertically and that Shadowclad is fixed to meet with the standards in their brochure.
