The butt joint must be lined up and be supported by a stud.

HardiePanel® HZ5™ Vertical Siding and Artisan® Siding with Lock Joint System

  • In all areas, HardiePanel® HZ5™ Vertical Siding must be installed over wood strapping, creating a drained and vented air space not less than 10 mm deep behind the cladding in conformance with Clause 9.27.2.2.(1)(a), Sentences 9.27.2.2.(2) and 9.27.5.7.(2), and Articles 9.27.5.3. and 9.27.5.4., of Division B of the NBC 2015.

Cladding system installation details

  • Installation of the products must meet the requirements of Article 9.27.3.8., Flashing Installation, and Subsections 9.27.4., Sealants, and 9.27.5., Attachment of Cladding, of Division B of the NBC 2015.
  • Fasteners for the attachment of products shall be corrosion-resistant and shall be compatible with the products in compliance with the requirements of Article 9.27.5.5., Fastener Materials, of Division B of the NBC 2015.
  • The attachment of the cladding conforms to the Results of testing the wind load resistance of the products for non-post-disaster buildings table of this Report.
  • The products must be installed in conjunction with materials conforming to Articles 9.27.3.2., Sheathing Membrane Material Standard, and 9.27.3.7., Flashing Materials, and Subsections 9.27.4. and 9.27.5. of Division B of the NBC 2015.
  • The requirements of Article 9.10.16.1., Required Fire Blocks in Concealed Spaces, of Division B of the NBC 2015 must be met.
  • The product must be installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s current installation instructions:
    • HS1235 2/14 for HardiePanel® HZ5™ Vertical Siding,
    • HS11118 2/14 for HardiePlank® HZ5™ Lap Siding,
    • HS11120 2/14 for HardieShingle® HZ5™ Notched Panels” and HardieShingle® HZ5™ Individual Shingle,

  • If the fastening schedules in the manufacturer’s installation instructions differ from those tested and reported in the Results of testing the wind load resistance of the products for non-post-disaster buildings table of this Report, the ones in the Results of testing the wind load resistance of the products for non-post-disaster buildings table supersede.
  • The technical opinion in this Report is limited to uncoated products. The manufacturer may provide primed or prepainted products. Low water vapour permeance coatings may affect the drying potential of the product as well as the substrate on which it is installed. Such a situation could lead to premature deterioration of the substrate and other elements in the wall assembly. The manufacturer’s recommendations for type and characteristics of coatings to be used in conjunction with the cladding must be followed.
  • The possibility of moisture accumulation within the wall construction is mainly a function of the level of workmanship related to the elements constituting the second plane of protection as defined in Article 9.27.2.3. of Division B of the NBC 2015, such as wall sheathing membrane, flashing, caulking and attachment of siding. A high level of quality control at all stages of the exterior wall construction is imperative for obtaining an acceptable performance.
  • The products shall be applied in geographical areas where the spectral response acceleration Sa(0.2) is 1.2 or less and the building is on a Class C site or better, as defined in Article 4.1.8.4., Site Properties, of Division B of the NBC 2015.
  • This Evaluation Report is applicable only to products identified with “CCMC 12678-R.”
