Hello , I want to use hardieflex cladding over the gauge steel frames of the fence as I highlight in red . I don’t know which screw I can use to drill into the steel ??? As I check in the Hardie flex that I can’t use self embedding hand screws in 4.5 mm thick sheet . Please, recommend me the screw that I can use . Thanks heap

Hello @yana

 

I suggest using Buildex 9 - 10 x 32mm Zinc Alloy 3 Star Head Fibre Cement Screws - 100 Pack. Buildex Fibre Cement Screws are designed for fixing fibre cement sheeting (6-12mm) to soft timber or light gauge steel studs. These are galvanized coated screws and are suitable for exterior use.

 

If you need more advice or information, please let us know.
