Gecko Gauges for increased productivity! We know what a fantastic product JamesHardie fibre cement boards are. Installation is much easier if you are fixing with a colleague. However, if you are working alone you need a Gecko Gauge.
The Gecko Gauge and JamesHardie planking
Firstly, the Gecko Gauge clamps help users install fibre cement siding up to 48% faster than traditional methods. The user clamps a pair of Gecko Gauges to the siding course, allowing them to gauge and support the next course for nailing. Because of the Friction-Cam mechanism on the gauge it provides the holding power to support the 3.6 metre boards.
Working as a pair, the Gecko Gauge clamps to each cladding layer. They act as a second set of hands to gauge and support the next board for nailing. Therefore you should get fast, accurate installation with less fatigue. The Gecko Gauge has been recognised as the fastest and simplest fibre cement siding tool.
Although the Gecko is made in America it has been modified for European metric boards. Therefore the gauge adjusts at 10mm for 100mm-240mm reveals and is designed for 8mm thick fibre cement cladding products.
Finally, please note, this product (SA9038m) is designed for the 8mm European boards, many products sold elsewhere are intended for the American market.
