Installation Options

KEY-KOMPRESS Compressed Fibre Cement is manufactured to be installed by a builder or nominated contractor. A vast benefit of KEY-KOMPRESS Compressed Fibre Cement lies in the simplicity and ease of installation.

Panels can be fixed to timber or steel framing. The framing must be designed to support top hats at the top and bottom of the wall and cross members within the span of the wall. (Design engineering is required for the cross member to the frame – consult material manufacture)

Panels can be installed with express joints with 10mm wide express joint between adjacent panels.
