Knight’s panel attachment systems works with a variety of fiber cement panel and siding options. Lap siding, board and batt assemblies, open-joint, face fastened, concealed fastend, clip systems and trim systems have all been sucessfully used with Knight’s facade attachment systems.
Panel attachment is accomplished and detailed just as the panels would typically be installed with Z-girts and hat channels, however without the thermal shorts in the exterior insulation, the hassle of engineering a durable & sufficient attachment method and costly installation labor of trimming the insulation around girt’s and bulky thick clips.
How to Use a Knight Attachment System with Fiber Cement Panels or Siding:
- Lap Siding: Typically installed over CI-Girt vertical framing only – or MFI-System in a vertical orientation.
- Board & Batt Systems: Typically installed over CI-Girt vertical framing only – or MFI-System in a vertical orientation.
- Panel Systems: Typically installed over CI-Girt vertical framing + horizontal PanelRail – or MFI-System in a horizontal or vertical orientation + PanelRail in a vertical or horizontal orientation respectively.
- Concealed Fastener Systems: Typically installed with CI-Girt vertical framing – or MFI-System in a vertical orientation, and used with concealed fastening system rails by others.
