DURABILITY
Resistance to Moisture/Rotting
HardieFlex™ Cement Boards have demonstrated
resistance to permanent moisture-induced deterioration
(rotting) by passing the following tests in accordance with
AS/NZS 2908.2:
• Water Permeability (Clause 8.2.2).
• Warm Water (Clause 8.2.4).
• Heat Rain (Clause 6.5).
• Soak Dry (Clause 8.2.5).

Resistance to Fire
HardieFlex™ Fiber Cement Boards are suitable where
non-combustible materials are required in accordance
with C1.12 of the Building Code of Australia.

James Hardie building products have been tested by


CSIRO in accordance with AS/NZS 3837 and are
classified as conforming to Group 1 material (highest and
best result possible), with an average specific extinction
area far lower than the permissible 250m²/kg, as
referenced in Specification C1.10a of the BCA.

Resistance To Termite Attack


Based on testing completed by CSIRO Division of Forest
Products and Ensis Australia, James Hardie building
products have demonstrated resistance to termite attack.

STORAGE AND HANDLING


Sheets must be installed in a dry state. Sheets must be
laid flat under cover on a smooth level surface clear of
the ground to avoid exposure to water or moisture, etc.

Responsibility
The specifier or other party responsible for the project
must ensure that the details in this specification are
appropriate for the intended application and that additional
detailing is performed for specific design or any areas that
fall outside the scope of this specification.

FRAMING
General
HardieFlex™ Cement Boards can be fixed to either timber
or light gauge domestic type steel framing. The framing
used must comply with the relevant building regulations
and standards and the requirements of this manual.

NOTE: Ensure all sheet edges are fully supported with


framing members.

Timber
Use only seasoned (kiln dried) timber. Unseasoned timber
must not be used, as it is prone to shrinkage and can
cause the sheets and frames to move. The minimum stud
width at joints is 35mm.

Steel
The size of the steel stud framing should be 0.55mm-
1.6mm base metal thickness (BMT).

Steel sections should be galvanized or zinc coated. Frame


members must not be less than 35mm wide.

WALLS INSTALLATION MANUAL NOVEMBER 2010 5


4 INSTALLATION
SHEET LAYOUT
Install the HardieFlex™ Fiber Cement Boards in the
direction of the framing members i.e. place the long
edges of the sheets parallel to the main framing members.

WINDOW AND DOOR OPENINGS


In normal situations, the end joints should not coincide
with corners of doors or window openings. Ensure sheet
edges do not coincide with the side of the door or window
opening by a minimum distance of 200mm. Refer to
Figure 3 where end joints occur, they should be fully
supported by framing and coincide with the centerline
of a stud, nogging or plate. This is to ensure sufficient
edge clearance for nailing or screwing of adjoining sheets
along the sheet edges. Where walls are clad on both sides
with HardieFlex™ Cement Boards, ensure that sheet
joints are staggered across the wall.

All construction must be carried out in accordance with the


relevant building regulations and standards.
figure ? SHEET LAYOUT WITH DOOR AND WINDOW OPENING
HardieFlex™ Cement Boards must not be fixed directly to
drawn steel or hot rolled steel sections. These should be
battened out with either a 50mm thick timber batten or
light guage metal furring channel.

Steel studs must be firmly secured to top and bottom


plates, and frames must be rigid and not rely on the
HardieFlex™ Cement Boards to provide bracing.

your builder or designer to minimize this.

Artificial lighting needs to be considered in relation to


walls (e.g. down-lights in ceilings above set joints in
walls). Wall joints should run in the direction of the light
source (at right angles to windows).

Where glancing light is an issue, its effect can be


lessened by:
n
The use of curtains or blinds
n
Artificial light shading devices
n
Use of light coloured, matt finish paints

PAINT FINISHES
Prior to application of paint finishes, remove any residual
sanding dust and ensure the surface is suitable for paint
application.

HardieFlex™ Cement Boards must have a minimum


of two coats of acrylic/latex paint applied after fixing.
Coating should be completed within 1 month of sheet
erection. Use only quality 100% acrylic/latex paints.
Economy paints are not recommended because generally
they are less well bound, less moisture resistant, and
more prone to mold growth. Damp, shady situations,
agriculture or sea spray environments may induce an
extra tendency for mold growth. Use mold inhibiting
and alkaline resistant undercoats and consult the paint
manufacturer for maximum mold resistant paints. Always
follow the paint manufacturer’s recommendation for paint
suitability, mixing and application.

NOTE
Use of a ‘sealer coat’ or ‘preparation undercoat’ is
recommended.
