Fiber Cement Gauges

Using the Facing Gauge while nailing across the width of the plank assures greater accuracy

of the desired exposure and guards against sagging. The Malco Overlap Gauge is used here

like an extra pair of hands to prop up one end of the plank for one-person application.

• Allows 1-person installation of siding planks.

• Two gauges support entire length of plank and precisely gauge

a standard 1-1/4 in. (31.2 mm) overlap - even on a bowed wall.

• No adjustments to vary and nothing to mark.

• Works on 5/16 in. (7.9 mm) fiber cement siding plank.

• Will not mar finish of pre-painted siding.

Place pair of gauges on top edge of lower plank as shown.

Rest upper plank against outside face of the gauge stop

to accurately space planks, and then nail upper plank

approximately 18 in. (46 cm) away from gauge.

Strong, one-piece tempered

spring steel construction.

Depress thumb tab to allow plank to snap

flush to wall and gauge.

Remove gauge by depressing thumb tab again and

lifting gauge up and off lower plank, then pulling

gauge out from under top plank.

U.S. Patent No. D525,492

• Adjustable for precise 5, 6, 7 or 8 in. (127, 152, 178 or 203 mm) exposures.

Gauging block easily snaps into desired position without use of tools or fasteners.

• Easy to grasp with one hand while steadying new plank for nailing.

• Manufactured of tough, long-lasting, weather-resistant nylon material throughout.

• May be used with Overlap Gauge for 1-person application.

Precision-ground tip assures gauge

will grip behind siding plank.
