MK2A WALL CLADDING

TO AVIOD CORROSION:

 Where at all possible try not to trap metal filings between two sheets. Remove all metal filings before riveting.

 Carbon in pencils reacts with the Zinc/Aluminium coating on steel. Use ink to mark steel.

TERMS EXPLANATION

To Tack: To Tack on a wall sheet means to use minimum nails hammered partly in to hold Wall Sheets in position. Should a Wall Sheet need to be re-positioned, the nails can easily be prized out.

 If a window is required, identify Wall Sheet(s) with window hole pre-cut. Lean up Wall Sheets where window(s) are to be located.

Note:

When fitting Gable

End Sheets ensure they overlap correctly

(fig 1).

The overlap direction may differ from cladding detail.

RAISED FLOOR MODIFICATION

For sheds being placed on a purpose built floor, (concrete, cobbles, ply etc.), the Wall Sheets will protrude 20mm below the

Base Plate. This will stop water flowing in between the Base

Plate and Floor.

The Floor should be made 15mm smaller than Base Size.

Note: Although it is not essential, fitting Damp Proof Course in between the Base Plate and the Floor will give added protection against moisture.

CLEAN UP

Remove all swarf (drill filings) with a soft brush or rag.

Hose down roof and walls thoroughly.

For Coloursteel sheds use touch-up paint provided on all nail heads, rivets and exposed cuts.
