We sell specialist tools designed to cut HardiePlank® products quickly and effectively.

Hardie Guillotine – Cutting fast and accurately every time, with no breaking, chipping or sawing dust.

Hardie Blades – The diamond tipped edges reduce dust and prevent faster blade wear. Available in 160mm, 190mm, 254mm, 305 mm

You can use impulse or pneumatic nail guns as well as nailing by hand. Nails should be placed 20-25mm down from the top edge of each plank and driven into the batten with the heads flush with the surface of the plank.

HardiePlanks should always be stored indoors in a shed or other storage facility. Storing the planks outdoors in areas with heavy rainfall can cause damage to the planks.

If you have no other place to store the planks but outside, make sure to cover the planks using a waterproof tarp.
