Invisible Business


There are mainly 3 methods for fixing timber cladding: secret fixing, face fixing and invisible (or concealed) fixing.

In this article we look at some options for Invisible Fixing Timber Cladding. This is the less used method, the least available and likely to be the most expensive. This method is mostly used for open joint timber cladding when a face fixing is not desirable for aesthetics reasons or where cladding boards are prefinished with a film forming coating and there is a preference for not penetrating that film.
