What is it?
A 16mm thick horizontal weatherboard with deep shadow lines. Scyon™ Linea™ weatherboard is the weatherboard that doesn’t weather like traditional weatherboard.
Where do you use it?
In residential applications wherever a contemporary design is required, including external walls in composite construction, upper-storey and ground-level extensions, and internal feature walls.
What are the key benefits?
Design options. The 16mm thick profile creates consistent deep shadows. The range of corner finishing details – aluminium, PVC or Scyon™ Axent™ trim – means that a range of different looks can be achieved. The Linea window adaptor can be used for subtle window treatments or the Axent trim can provide a contrast. Face or concealed fixing rounds out the options.
Easy to install. Linea weatherboards are back bevelled to sit flush with the stud. Paint application is fast because the pre-primed sheets mean less paint and time is needed to achieve a high-quality finish.
Low maintenance. Linea weatherboard will maintain its integrity and general appearance significantly longer than timber. Some timber is susceptible to cracking in exterior applications, which in turn can lead to shrinking or warping. Linea weatherboard will resist shrinking, swelling and cracking * to hold paint longer than wood, and can also be painted dark as well as light colours.
Extra security. Not only does James Hardie provide a 25-year product warranty on Linea weatherboard, but Wattyl® Australia Pty Ltd has given a 15-year paint warranty on Wattyl Solagard® when used on Linea weatherboard, and Taubmans has given a 15-year paint warranty on All Weather® and Sun Proof Max® paints when used on Linea weatherboard.
Enhances energy efficiency. When Linea weatherboard is used with the right insulation (and in accordance with James Hardie’s Wall System Thermal Performance Total R-Values Technical Supplement), an R-value of up to 2.8 can be achieved for the wall.
* When installed and maintained correctly.
