Scyon™ Linea™ weatherboard
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.

FAQ for Scyon™ Linea™ weatherboard

Can I conceal fix Scyon™ Linea™ cladding in all scenarios?

Face fixing is required at corners, around openings, and on the top and bottom plate when used in bracing. Face fixing may also be required where appropriate to ensure the overlapping board is flat against the underside board.

Which sealant should I use when installing Scyon™ Linea™ cladding?

James Hardie Polyurethane Joint Sealant is the preferred sealant, however an equivalent sealant may be used as long as it is a paintable polyurethane. This sealant can also be used on mitres.

What can I use as a starter strip with Scyon™ Linea™ cladding?

Scyon™ Linea™ cladding can be cut down into strips and used, or a strip of H3 treated pine is also suitable. Alternatively off-cuts of fibre cement (eg HardiTex) can also be used.

What equipment can I use to achieve a mitre join with Scyon™ Linea™ cladding?

A compound drop saw fitted with the appropriate HardiBlade® Saw blade is the recommended equipment for all cutting tasks. Hitachi and Makita make these saws with 10” and 12” blades.

How do I paint the aluminium corner accessories used with Scyon™ Linea™ cladding?

These accessories are coated with a chromatic wash. It is best to apply an epoxy based prep coat, and then 2 coats of a suitable quality exterior grade paint as per the recommendations of the painting manufacturer. Dulux, Taubmans and Wattyl are our major alliances.

Why does ‘board gapping’ occur with Scyon™ Linea™ cladding, and how do I fix this?

Board gapping can be a direct result of frame inaccuracy. The appearance of board gapping can be reduced by face nailing at gap, or applying James Hardie Joint Sealant into the gap.

How do I paint the aluminium extrusions for windows used with Scyon™ Linea™ cladding?

These accessories are powder coated. It is best to apply an expoxy based prep coat, and then 2 coats of quality exterior grade paint as per the recommendations of the painting manufacturer. Dulux, Taubmans and Wattyl are our major alliances.

When joining Scyon™ Linea™ cladding off stud, is there a minimum distance the join should take place from the stud?

Yes, 100mm is the minimum distance. Any closer jointing may lead to the stud inducing peaking on the join.

What is the preferred cutting (saw) blade to use with Scyon™ Linea™ cladding?

The HardiBlade has been specifically developed for use with fibre cement.

Can Scyon™ Linea™ cladding be used as bracing?

Yes, please consult the technical manual for further information.
