Metal & Timber Framed Walls

Marmox construction boards can be fixed horizontally or vertically to timber or metal frame walls. For better thermal insulation use thicker boards (min. 20mm) closely butted.

 


Procedures:

  • Vertical studs are at 600mm, noggins at 600mm.
  • Board edges must be supported by noggin.
  • Cut around all penetrations.
  • Use 15 galvanized screws per board, min. 30mm from edges.
  • Screws to be tightened till washers bite the board surface then level the washer with a rubber mallet.
  • Cover joints by self adhesive fibreglass tape embedded in a layer of flexible tile adhesive.
  • Once the adhesive has hardened tiles can be fixed and grouted.

Waterproofing:

For waterproof construction all joints, penetrations and fastener locations must be treated by approved polyurethane waterproof as per manufacturer's recommendation.
