Quickflash ready-made flashings are designed to be purchased off the shelf to meet fl ashing requirements in accordance with E2/AS1. Flashings are in three metre lengths with the exception of joiners and saddle flashings.
They are available in 0.55mm Z450 galvanised steel, 0.55mm Colorsteel Maxx and 0.5mm stainless steel. Saddle flashings are only available in stainless steel because of their compatibility with treated timber. Several new flashings have recently been added to the Quickflash range.
These include increased options for Z flashings, allowing for a variety of cladding widths. Internal and external face flashings are also available for use with sheet claddings — for example, ply and fibre cement.
These flashings are designed to be visible and are easy to fix, providing a clean corner finish for the cladding. The full range of flashings and details on how they can be used are available on the Quickflash web site at www.quickflash.co.nz, with brochures available from building supplies merchants.
Architects and designers wishing to incorporate Quickflash flashing designs into plans can obtain a detailed catalogue and updated CD by e-mailing info@quickfl ash.co.nz, or phoning 03 543 2145.
