Installing sun shade cladding on a metal structure
Installing on a metal structure will involve one of two situations: 1/ U-shaped metal profile: The boards can be fixed using rivets of at least ø 4.9 mm (rivet length depends on the thickness of the metal support).
Installing rhombus cladding boards vertically using clips
Are you opting to install your rhombus cladding vertically? When installed vertically using clips, our open rhombus cladding boards must be mechanically fixed at a point in order to stop them sliding along the cleats (nailed or screwed installation).
Installing rhombus cladding boards using nails or screws
Are you opting to use nails for your open rhombus cladding boards?
Installing horizontal rhombus cladding boards
Have you opted to install your open rhombus cladding horizontally, using clips?
Fitting an outward facing corner for open rhombus cladding
The outward facing corner accessory allows you to create an inward OR outward facing corner. Its main function is to cover the longitudinal expansion gaps of the profiles. Before any installation of a corner, it is important to double the cleats on each of the two side walls.
Fitting a butting profile for open rhombus cladding boards
The butting profile is installed vertically and conceals the expansion gap between the boards, which are installed horizontally. To install this accessory, you need to triple the number of cleats.
Starting and finishing installation of open rhombus cladding boards
The start and end profile accessory can only be fitted horizontally. It starts and ends the installation of vertical or horizontal boards. Its main function is to ensure that cladding boards are supported properly.
