Installation

End Matching is a tongue and groove profile applied to the ends of the boards so they can be joined off-stud. End matching assists with water proofing, eliminates the need to measure and trim the ends of the boards saving time installing, reducing the waste of timber from 10% to approx. 5%.

The installation method for end-matching is the same whether the cladding is vertical or horizontal.
Sikaflex 11FC or similar needs to be applied to gap, boards are then pushed together with excess sealant to be cut off once dry. Where cladding is installed vertically the tongue should be installed
facing upwards.

Faqs

What is Vacoa Timber Cladding?

Vacoa is a thermally modified Nordic Pine. Thermally modified timber means it has been heated to over 210 °C in the absence of oxygen. This process introduces chemical changes to the structures of cell wall components (lignin, cellulose and hemicellulose) in the wood to increase its durability. The timber is heated in an environment with low oxygen to prevent burning at high temperatures. Once thermally modified, the timber absorbs less water, consequently increasing decay resistance while decreasing swelling and shrinking. Thermally modified wood is far more durable than its previous state.
