Description

The NuLine Plus™ Weatherboard Cavity System is an external wall cladding system for residential and light commercial type buildings where domestic construction techniques are used.

The system consists of horizontally fixed NuLine Plus™ fibre cement weatherboards installed over non-structural or structural timber battens to form the cavity, flashings and accessories and is finished with a latex paint system.

The system 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 frame with a nominal 20 mm drained cavity.
