When it comes to profiles, it is important to know what way you would like to lay your boards and how you want the finished result to look. Some of our profiles can be used both horizontally and vertically, whereas others can only be used for one orientation. This is dependent on how the water hits the board.
Water must run off of the board, if not this can cause damage, which could make the boards change the shape if moisture is absorbed.

Invizifix® Side Grooved
Our Invizifix® Side Grooved profile is can only be used vertically and is ideal if you want a shadow gap and hidden fixings. To fit this profile, you will use a clip and black-headed screw. The clip fixes in the groove of the profile. The V points create a 5mm gap between boards. This can be used for cladding and decking, where the cladding pushes the boards in.
The Nisa profile creates a 10mm shadow gap. This means that the board can't be used horizontally. However, screws can be fitted at a 45-degree angle so that they are hidden.
The Nisa profile is one of our most popular profiles alongside the Palma.
Our Vera profile provides a 10mm shadow gap and can be installed horizontally and vertically, this is because water will not sit in the boards due to the way the profile is fashioned. This profile is also reversible, making it very versatile for gates as the front will appear the same as the back.
The Sara profile is the feather edge equivalent and must be laid horizontally only. This is a great alternative if you do not want to incorporate cheaper, pressure-treated material.
The Smooth profile is generally used for decking. If you would like a similar appearance for cladding, we suggest using a profile suited to our Invizifix® clips for a seamless transition between boards.
Palma profile is our most popular horizontal option. To install this profile, you will use an Invizifix® T-clip so that the fixings are hidden.
Arya can be used both horizontally and vertically and creates a very interesting v-groove appearance. This is not one of our most popular profiles, but if you would like a textured finish, this profile is perfect for you!
With the Rombo profile, you will lose 10mm on the face due to the style of the profile. This type of profile can only be face-fixed and suitable only for horizontal cladding.
It is advised to note that every tongue and groove profile will lose 10mm on the face, so it is important to account for this when measuring how much material you will need.
The Aura profile cannot be machined thinner than 25mm and cannot be less than 130mm in length. This profile can be used to clad horizontally and vertically.
The TanTak profile is a great option if you want to have 0 fixings since no screws are needed. The profile simply clips onto the recommended framework.
