Linea® Oblique Weatherboard Cavity Cladding is a cavity-based fibre cement weatherboard wall cladding.
It is designed to be used as part of an external cladding system for residential and light commercial type buildings where domestic construction techniques are used.
Linea® Oblique Weatherboard Cavity Cladding consists of Linea® Oblique Weatherboard, which is a rusticated profile fibre cement weatherboard, fixed horizontally or vertically over timber battens to form the cavity. Proprietary ventilated battens are used in the vertical application. The cladding is finished with a latex paint system.
The cladding incorporates a primary and secondary means of weather resistance (first and second line of defence) against water penetration by separating the cladding from the external wall framing with a nominal 20 mm cavity. The cavity allows for any occasional ingress of water that may get past the external skin to drain to the exterior of the building, and any remaining moisture to dry by evaporation.
