EASE AND SPEED OF INSTALLATION

ICON™ Composite Siding is designed to not only look beautiful, but also to ensure fast, safe and precise installation for maximum siding performance.
From its easier handling and portability to its revolutionary features, ICON™ can reduce the total number of man-hours by a considerable margin.

ICON’s unique formulation has created a panel that is not only lightweight but also flexible and easy to handle.
A single installer can carry up to 6 planks at a time without fear of breakage.

The unique self aligning Stack Lock design makes the plank easy for a single installer to hang without the use of clips.
It provides additional stability on the wall.

The patented STUDfinder™ system helps identify wall stud placement, providing a precise fastening guide.
It drastically improves speed of installation, accuracy, safety and performance, by ensuring correct nail position every time.

Planks can be butted tightly together and require no additional caulking or flashing. This creates a seamless and clean appearance on the wall.

A defined nailing line is inset on every ICON panel to ensure proper nail placement every time and eliminate visible nail heads. 

ICON’s unique product formulation makes it strong enough to hard nail using a standard roofing gun without risk of panel damage.
