|Nailing flange enhances the look of siding installation while saving installation time.
WIXOM, MICH. (Jan. 9, 2018) – Kleer Lumber, an industry leader in cellular PVC trim, is adding an outside corner to its lineup of trim components with an integrated nailing flange. The system, which includes a flat trimboard, a J-channel brick, and the new corners, saves installation hassles and ensures a clean, streamlined appearance. Each integrated nailing flange forms a 3/4-inch pocket to conceal end cuts, ideal for enhancing and finishing the look of vinyl siding and other panelized polymer systems, such as shake, shingle, and stone.
Made with expanded cellular PVC, the trim components offer the look of wood without the associated maintenance, and they will not splinter, rot, delaminate, or swell.
“Our trim components with integrated nailing flange help installers create a more refined, finished appearance for their façades, in a format that is simple and straightforward to install,” said Matt Michalski, Product Manager for Kleer Lumber. “They’re the ideal complement to a range of siding materials, while offering an authentic look and the promise of minimal maintenance and long-term durability.”
Outside corners with integrated nailing flange come in two sizes: 3-1/2 inches by 3-1/2 inches by 20 feet and 5-1/2 inches by 5-1/2 inches by 20 feet. Flat styles measure 1-1/8 inches by 3-1/2 inches by 16 feet, and the J-channel brick is 1-1/4 inches by 3 inches by 17 feet.
Kleer trimboards cut and fasten with standard tools, and they can be installed in direct contact with the ground, masonry, and other potentially wet surfaces.
