Agricon plank for siding

Agricon Planck (Profile) complements just mounted siding. It protects the slopes of window openings from extra dust, dirt and precipitation. Without her, the siding cladding would adopt the unfinished species – the bar is selected under the color range of the main panels.


Before the invention of siding as a subspecies of the facing material, the design of the windows was simple. Few could afford a figured stucco or special texture of walls and platbands – in most cases the house was simply decorated, without any of the sizes.

Coil Plank – Additional accessory or component, purchased for a specific fastening step and siding texture. Siding panels are easy to cut into fragments and collected, inserting one in another. Okonic profile has a groove along the entire length – the ends of the Siding section enter it. The assembled joint of the coil strip and ends of the fragments of the facing forms a compound that does not pass, for example, oblique shower – the drops of water and water flows flow down it down, without meeting any obstacles and not wetting the design profile that this siding is fixed on the wall of the house.

Coil strips are often used as a casing of an outer door. They can be installed both before and after installing the main siding coating.

In some cases, premature installation of coil slats greatly simplifies the marking of siding fragments – they do not need to be additionally customized if the installed coil plank did not fit onto its place. This factor simplifies and speeds up the entire assembly process.

Inserting siding sheets closing the bulk of the wall, produced In J-shaped grooves, holding these panels on their ends in a stationary state. The inner wide zone completely overlaps the slope throughout its area. The inner slanting of the coil panel enters the finishing bar – some craftsmen simply attach it to the windows frame with the samples with a head painted with white enamel. External – forms the most J-shaped profile groove. The latter, in turn, is maintained by segments of siding, fixed to the carrier-free construction using self-tapping screws, simultaneously giving these sheets to shift.

For better protection of the junction of the window and window opening, finish planks apply. They are several times narrower than the coil plank, and do not go beyond the windows frame (from the side of the glass package with the rubber seal).


Mainly a near-bed profile is made of plastic. An excellent addition to vinyl siding is a near-room plank from the same material – on the texture and color scheme they are harmoniously combined with each other.

Metal cooon and finishing strips, in particular, from pure aluminum (or aluminum alloy) can be an excellent addition to aluminum or steel sofam – a variety of more capital siding, which has been used for low-rise buildings. A bright example – a residential knife wheelchair, but this is a rarity. Under Sofit and planks in the emptiness between such siding and the bearing wall laid insulation (glass gamble, foam).


The width of the slopes – up to 18 cm. In the overwhelming majority of cases of this distance, it is enough so that the coil plank will be perfect in the opening and the existing slope, connected with the main siding on the external perimeter of the window.

Small outdoor part of the bar approximately three times less thanks. This width is enough to hide the transitions between siding sheets and an external perimeter (to the bevel) of the window passage.

The length of the elongated holes, for which the coil panel is attached to the carrier (around the perimeter of the outlet) of the structure, not more than 2 cm. That, in turn, is toughly fixed on the wall. Sloves – as well as on Siding sheets – are made by such for compensation for wondering in the summer at the heat (or tension in winter in the cold) coil plank.

The line of the size of a near-room profile is determined only by the brand of the manufacturer.

Okonic profile has no dozens of variations in dimensions. Houses built in old standards, are not always suitable for restoration: installation of coil panels without windows replacement – the case is complex. Replacing the old Soviet window from a tree to a new, metal-plastic, it is customized in the opening so that the slopes (including sheer, under 90 degrees) turned out with a width of no more than 18 cm. A number of manufacturers also offer alternative versions of solving this issue.


Most often, the coil panels have a scatter of color shades of pastel gamma. And the frontal (used, external), and the inner (“primary” part of the part is most often fulfilled in a single shade – from light brown (“cream”) shade to white.

The original coil panels are made for individual finishes to order: the vinyl-containing (or vinyl-based) coating is applied to the vinyl, the coating tightly adjacent to the main (carrier) layer of each component. The basis for such paint is a polymer that serves as the basis for coil planks.

And the simplest version of the contrasting decor is green, blue or red coil strips on the background of white siding sheets.


Step-by-step instructions for installing the coil strip for siding includes several points.

  1. If it’s necessary, Replace window frames on new. Clean the window and window open from all extra, interfering work.

  2. Check out The state of slopes, Get out the gaps and cracks near the openings.

  3. After drying the smelting (construction mixture) Treat slope and line of its joint with a windows frame with antifungal and anti-flap.

  4. Mount the dry-cutting structure on all walls where siding is planned to install. After the construction of a missile carrier structure, determine how the sampling should be located using a special enough accessories. This element is placed at some distance from the facade side of the structure or building and gives the drain of uniformity. From the special process detail you can refuse – the function of drainage will take on a coil plank, bevelled at a certain angle. For the plank, the segment of the bar is put in advance – at the same angle.

  5. Attach a wooden or plastic rail to the outside zone of the window turnout, serving the base for the finish plank. Here will be useful details worked out of deciduous wood – it is only slightly expanding with heat. All wooden components are impregnate with protective compositions.

  6. Calculate the required amount of material for trimming. As the source data – the internal and external perimeter of the window passage, the width of. On one of the measured parties, three reference points are used – the third will allow to bypass the skew, which is planned when changing the height of the working point. The obtained values ​​are measured and compared with the window layout scheme.

  7. Communicating the parameters of slopes and window opening, Purchase a near-room profile of the desired size (or adapt previously purchased).

  8. Prepare fasteners. Window selflessness should not exceed the time and diameter recommended values. Otherwise, the worst option – cracking the glass in the windows windshop.

  9. Fix the finish bar. It is installed on the inner perimeter of the window span. The finish plank must be tightly pressed against the frame. To give additional stability, the attractiveness of the assembled cladding and excerpts of the direct angle of docking the components will be cut under 45 degrees. Plastic, in particular, the vinyl, from which siding and window platbands are made, is easily cut with a grinder – use the cutting disk for metal or wood.

Match and fix the finish and coil strips.

  1. First, tee down the lower side. For example, when the width of the window from the inside is 80 cm, and the platband extends this distance by 8 cm, then the total length of a near-room plank is 96 cm – 8 per battery from each side.

  2. Internal trimmed ledge bend. Filight is formed – it must be cut to 2-2.5 cm. External will remain straight – either you can cut a small part of the dock. Hold the cutting angle of 45 degrees. Deviation at least one degree at a temperature narrowing in winter will result in the formation of a slot.

  3. Repeat steps with opposite (top) compounding coil and finishing planks. Circuit under 45 degrees may turn out to be mirror.

  4. Fix the cropped items with additional screws – from the outside. With the inner finish slap closes the coil.

  5. Similarly, sample, saw and weld the side (left and right) components. Measurements can not be made by three, and on two points – the SCOS does not threaten them, as the landmarks of the coil and finishing slats already have. The upper and lower components have hollows for the outflow of rainwater and monstering snow – the inner component of the slope rack is shortened only by the measured value of curvature.

Circumcision of external planks is carried out in another way.

  1. Leave upper edges straight. Exception – Corrective Corner Correction. Bottom edges Dock through the cutting of the plank under the 45-degree angle.

  2. For docking, impose a vertical rack under the angle of the top component – And shove it under the finish line. The tongue should be under it. Repeat the same action for the bottom plank. At the same time, the rack angle of the coil strip must be chopped by hiding the seen part of the lower plank.

  3. Fix With the help of window screws, all the fundamental components.

  4. Cap All joints with glue sealant.

Other option of fastening coil and finish slats does not use 45-degree sections. The coil plank is installed, it will not be necessary to increase it. Collect siding cladding.
