Ultimate Clip from Nichiha USA
Ultimate Clip from Nichiha USAA new system for fiber cement architectural wall panels claims to simplify installation. The system, consisting of a starter track and a single model of clips, is designed to streamline installation and save on labor since with 26″ clips, just two clips are needed per 6′ panel. Ultimate Clip’s larger surface area is designed to increase the overall system’s wind rating by 83%. Ultimate Clip creates a built-in rainscreen that allows trapped moisture to drain away and dry out, protecting the building envelope and the health of occupants. The 10mm airspace is double that of the previous system, meeting AAMA 509.9 testing standards.
