FCG2 Fiber Cement Siding

Overlap Gauges

Strong, one-piece tempered spring steel construction.

Precision-ground tip assures gauge will grip behind siding plank.

U.S. Patent No. D525,492

18 in. (46 cm) • Works with 5/16 in. (8 mm) fiber cement siding. • Permits 1-person application of siding planks by completely freeing up users hands. • Two gauges support entire length of plank and precisely gauge a standard 1-1/4 in. (32 mm) overlap in one easy step, even on a bowed wall. • No adjustments to vary and nothing to mark. • Will not mar finish of pre-painted siding.

Place pair of gauges on top edge of lower plank as shown. Rest upper plank against outside face of the gauge stop to accurately space planks and then nail upper plank approximately 18 in. (46cm) away from gauge.

Depress thumb tab to allow plank to snap flush to wall and gauge.

Remove gauge by depressing thumb tab again and lifting gauge up and off lower plank, then pulling gauge out from under top plank.

FCFG Fiber Cement Siding

Facing Gauge

• Adjustable for precise 5, 6, 7 or 8 in. (127, 152, 178 or 203 mm) exposures. Gauging block easily snaps into desired exposure position without use of tools or fasteners. • Easily held with one hand while steadying new plank for nailing. • May be used with Overlap Gauge for 1-person application (See No. FCMS Speed Set Gauges). • Manufactured of tough, long-lasting, weather-resistant nylon material throughout.

FCMS Speed Set


Use the Speed Set for 1-person installation! Using the Facing Gauge while nailing across the width of the plank assures greater accuracy of the desired exposure and guards against sagging. The Malco Overlap Gauge is used here like an extra pair of hands to prop up one end of the plank for one-person application.
