HardiePlank VL Vertical Installation
When installing HardiePlank VL vertically it is important to fit battens carefully. Counter battens should be installed horizontally at no more than 600mm centres. It is also vital that the vertical battens are also fitted at no more than 600mm centres as well.
The Hardie J Profile is used in the top-detail to help create a 10mmm ventilation gap (see page 62 and 64). The J profile is used to form a finishing detail between the top edge of the boards and soffit.
It is also possible to use the HardiePlank J Profile trim is an option with Internal corners (see p 57) and with window cills.
