Axent trim

Scyon Axent Trim is an attractive and durable detail for external window surrounds or internal and external wall corners.

Paint white to contrast darker weatherboard cladding for a lasting Hamptons style.

For finishing touches that last longer than traditional soft wood.

Axent is a thick and versatile trim made from ScyonTM. It's the easy way to add finishing touches that keep their finish and resist damage.

Ideal for edge treatment around windows, finishing touches to cladded internal and external corners as well as a design enhancer for butt joints.

The thickness of AxentTM Trim helps create the impression of solidness, and it's crisp, clean edges highlight frames and openings.

Axent Trim will maintain its integrity and general appearance significantly longer than traditional soft wood. Some timber is susceptible to cracking in external applications which can lead to shrinking and warping. Axent Trim will resist shrinking, swelling and cracking and hold paint longer than wood, when installed and maintained correctly, and can also be painted dark as well as light colours.

Preparation

Design Options

Edges cut on site must be primed before installation. Slight chamfering of cut edges is recommended to improve edge paint adhesion.

Clearances

Install Scyon™ Axent™ Trim with a minimum 150mm clearance to the earth on the exterior of the building or in accordance with local building codes if greater than 150mm is required.

Maintain a minimum 50mm clearance between Scyon™ Axent™ Trim and roofs, decks, paths, steps and driveways. Adjacent finished grade must slope away from the building in accordance with local building codes, typically a minimum slope of 50mm minimum over the first metre.

Do not install Scyon™ Axent™ Trim such that it may remain in contact with standing water.

Note

Greater clearance may be required in order to comply with termite protection provisions.

Installation

Notes

When using Scyon™ Axent™ Trim with Scyon™ Linea™ weatherboard, additional framing may be required, see Scyon™ Linea™ weatherboard installation instructions.

You must ensure the product is of acceptable quality prior to installation, see Important Note 3. Scyon™ Axent™ Trim must be fixed directly to timber framing with two fasteners at either end of the trim. Intermediate fixings are also required at 150mm maximum staggered centres for finish nails. All other nails require intermediate fixings at 300mm maximum staggered centres. Intermediate fasteners
are not staggered at corners where framing is off-set, see Figure 2.

When installing Scyon™ Axent™ Trim around windows see Figure 1.
