FAQ

Sagirev

Can I install SAGIREV on an exterior wall?

It is not recommended. Although the argument is often made as to the comparison between other exterior claddings such as vinyl siding and SAGIREV, the SAGIREV is specifically designed for soffits, ceilings and interior wall applications. If it is used on an exterior wall, it is at the discretion of the applicator and all warranty would be voided.

What can I use to fasten the SAGIREV panels?

If fastening directly to wood joists, an electric powered stapler with adjustable pressure gauge can be used. It is important to note that a pneumatic stapler will shatter the tab. If fastening through drywall into wood studs, a flat pan-head screw can be used, or a self-tapping pan-head if fastening to steel studs or t-bar.

Can I glue SAGIREV panels?

An adhesive, such as PL Premium, can be used to install SAGIREV panels in an interior wall or ceiling application onto a smooth surface, such as drywall.

Is the vinyl wrap on the SAGIREV the same as the SAGIWALL?

Yes it is. Both products are wrapped in the same high-quality, exterior specific vinyl.

How do I install the last SAGIREV panel when using a J-mold perimeter?

Installing the last piece of SAGIREV in an enclosed ceiling or soffit application, with perimeter Jmolds, can always be tricky. Often the piece will need to be ripped to accommodate the appropriate measurement. This can be done with either a table saw or circular saw with appropriate blades. If the J-mold is already fastened into place, the final SAGIREV panel can be shimmied into place by using a very thin metal spatula to pry the J-mold open enough to receive the panel. Alternatively, the last panel could be put into place with the J-mold already attached to the panel. In this instance, you would place a bead of PL Premium to the back of the panel, to ensure it stays in place, and fire a finishing nail at each corner of the panel, into the wood frame substrate, for maximum obscurity.

What should I use to cut the SAGIREV panels?

SAGIREV panels can be cut using a fine-toothed blade for a miter-saw, no less than 82 teeth, to avoid any chipping or cracking.

Sagiwall

Can SAGIWALL be installed vertically?

Yes it can. SAGIWALL can be installed both vertically and horizontally. If installed vertically, use a J-mold to surround the entire perimeter and drill small drain holes in the female base of the J-mole in order to allow for proper drainage. It is also worth noting that when installed vertically, the SAGWIALL acts as its own natural rain-screen due to its cellular core and ribbed back.

Is SAGIWALL hail-proof?

We cannot claim that our SAGIWALL panels are “hail-proof”. However, with an impact resistance of 150lbs/psi, it is safe to say that our SAGIWALL panels are definitely hail-resistant and offer a much stronger impact resistance than most exterior cladding products.

What should I use to fasten SAGIWALL and aluminum accessory trims?

For the panels, it is recommended that a 1 ¼” pan-head fastener be used for the panels and a 1 ¼” self-tapping pan-head fastener be used for the aluminum base trims. It is also worth noting that when fastening the panels, the fastener should not be driven in tight, but rather fastened flush with the ridges either side of the fastening slots, to allow for natural movement of the panel during expansion and contraction.

What should I use to cut the SAGIWALL panels and aluminum accessory trims?

SAGIWALL panels can be cut using a fine-toothed blade for a miter-saw, no less than 82 teeth, to avoid any chipping or cracking. The aluminum accessory trims can be cut with an aluminum specific cutting blade for the miter saw.

Why are my SAGIWALL panels and finishing trims not finished perfectly on the ends?

You will notice that the vinyl wrap on all panels and finishing cap trims for the SAGIWALL (and even for the SAGIREV) are either slightly over-wrapped or slightly under-wrapped when coming off of the production line during manufacturing. To account for this, the panels and finishing caps are left slightly longer than their suggested length so that the ends can be trimmed on-site prior to installation.

Are there touch-up pens available for my SAGIWALL panels?

Yes there are touch-up pens available for each SAGIWALL finish.

Can I butt-joint my SAGIWALL panels?

The SAGIWALL panels are not designed or meant to be butt-jointed on an exterior wall. Although it will not void any kind of warranty if they are done, with expansion and contraction, visible gaps will open up wherever a butt-joint has been used. It is always recommended that where full length panels cannot be utilized, a continuous seam be planned for so that an H-mold trim be used to join two sections of panels.
