The weatherboard holds a number of attributes including insulation resistance. It is supplied in the following board sizes and R-Values, shown below as an individual component and as a complete typical building system.

Product Scope of Use

The TAUCO Weatherboard system has been designed for use as a cladding system within the
following scope:
Attached directly to new timber frame or over a cavity system, designed and constructed in accordance with NZS 3604:2011 or NASH STANDARD - RESIDENTIAL AND LOW-RISE STEEL FRAMING, PART 1-3, designed and constructed in accordance with, situated in wind zones up and including very high, when incorporating the specified cavity system, and up to medium when direct fix, as per NZS 3604 Building Wind Zones, as well as a building height limitation of 10 metres.

Product Limitations

TAUCO Weatherboard system can be installed in both the horizontal and vertical plains. But in areas defined in C3 - Fire affecting areas beyond the fire source, the specific fire designs need to be approved by local BCA (Building Consent Authorities); then, the TAUCO Weatherboard system can be used.
Thermal resistance depends on the overall mix of products of the entire wall construction and consequently calculations must be carried out to determine the entire wall R-value. The TAUCO Weatherboard is supplied in maximum 12.0m lengths, walls greater than the maximum length will require a vertical control joint installed from top to bottom of the wall section.
All objects to be fixed to the face of the TAUCO Weatherboard just are back-blocked to carry the weight of the fixture and its intended use. Maximum weight without back blocking is 1kg. The TAUCO Weatherboard system shall be installed only by trained and approved applicators.
