Sub construction and assembly
To install the akustik+slimline planks can as shown be resorted to traditional fastening systems, such as battens or cross-battens. The individual slats can either be shot by the groove with mounting brackets or to use the mounting clips shown here of special hardened steel.
The system is equally suitable for both wall and ceiling mount.
If for fire protection reasons a noncombustible substructure be necessary, commercial metal rails (e.g. from the dry wall building) can be used. The mounting clips are then secured with self-drilling screws.
The slimline planks can be mounted either in brickstone optic or without offset. By installation in brickstone optic a almost waste-free mounting is given.
We recommend, depending on the size of the wall or ceiling area small joints with a distance of 2 - 3 mm to allow the material to shrink and swell in the longitudinal direction (see also our installation and processing instructions).
