Cover board profiles are designed primarily for overcapping of existing roofline construction in refurbishment projects. They are not able to support the weight of eaves tiles or guttering on their own and should be fixed to existing sound timber or suitable backboards at 600mm centres for white and 400mm centres for foiled and coloured profiles.
9mm Cappit is a flat-backed refurbishment fascia or bargeboard for overcapping existing sound timber backing. A square return leg accommodates lay-on soffits. This board requires a timber backing board to support the eaves row of tiles.
The 9mm fascia are often referred to as ‘cappit boards’ or ‘cover board fascias’ or “refurbishment fascias” in the trade.
