Floplast Fascia and Soffit Specifications

Below you can find a set of specifications for Floplast Upvc roofline boards.

I prefer using materials manufactured by Floplast as they cheaper than their rivals Swish or Celuform but are of the same quality, in my opinion.

I have been using Floplast for many years and have never experienced any issues with the quality of their products. They also offer a 10 years materials guarantee via an easy to use online registration form.

 

Soffit Boards

Length – 5 metre
Width – various sizes from 100mm to 604mm
Thickness – 9mm solid board
Colours – white, black, mahogany, golden oak, rosewood
Fixings – plastic capped stainless steel nails 40mm
Joints – thermal allowance must be made with a soffit joining strip at each 5 metre interval
Vents – choose from either a pre-vented soffit or use another form of ventilation such as a fascia vent

Hollow Boards

These hollow boards can be used either as a soffit or as a horizontal cladding board. There are often used under car porches. They are very lightweight, more cladding info here.

Length – 5 metre
Width – 100mm or 300mm
Thickness – 9mm hollow board
Colours – white, black, mahogany, golden oak, rosewood
Fixings – stainless steel nails 30mm
Joints – interconnecting tongue and groove style cladding boards. For lengths greater than 5 metre a soffit joint can be used
Vents – if used as a soffit board then a fascia vent can be specified

Floplast Fascia Boards

Length – 5 metre
Width – various from 150mm up to 404
Thickness – 9mm capping board or 18mm mammoth board. Both are solid boards
Colours – white, black, mahogany, golden oak, rosewood
Fixings – stainless steel nails 65mm
Joints – fascia joint at every 5 metre, secured with adhesive to one board (allows for thermal expansion of the boards) corner sections also available
Vents – if a non vented soffit board is installed then a fascia vent can be specified

Please note the following:

1) The 9mm capping fascia requires a backing board to support the weight of the roof tiles. 18mm boards do not require additional support.
2) Floplast fascia boards can be used a bargeboard
3) 1200mm x 404mm boards are available for box end construction
