Vulcan Nexus Cladding is manufactured using finger jointed timber to create cladding in long lengths with a unique visual aesthetic. One universal profile allows for secret fixing in a vertical or horizontal orientation.
Vulcan Nexus Cladding is suitable for coating in darker colours, and is a renewable alternative to Western Red Cedar timber cladding.

Cladding is bit more technical than decking, so always consult with a professional before starting your project. A Licenced Building Practitioner is required for install.
Abodo cladding may be face fixed or secret fixed depending on the profile shape. Stainless steel ring shank nails or self-drilling stainless steel countersunk screws should be used in all cases. Generally we recommend to fix boards onto a drained cavity system to allow good airflow and optimum weather protection.
All profiles requires a minimum 2mm expansion gap to be left between boards, you need to ensure all cut ends must are resealed with penetrating oil or sealer. Boards should be coated all sides and re-coated regularly as required thereafter.
