Installation overview

Gypframe Floor & Ceiling Channel is fixed at the head and base. Gypframe studs are fitted vertically to a friction-fit within the channel sections, and to abutments, to form the framework. This allows for adjustment during boarding. Studs are fitted so as to all face the same way. Additional framing is installed as required to support heavy fixtures. Boards are screw-fixed to framing members to form the lining. Horizontal board-end joints of face lining boards should be backed with Gypframe GFS1 Fixing Strap (single and double layer) or Gypframe GFT1 Fixing ‘T’ (single layer only). Openings Details for openings differ according to Duty requirements. See Design - Door openings later for further details.

Services Electrical and other services are normally installed after one side is boarded. Horizontal runs are routed through pre-formed cut-outs in the studs. Gypframe 99 FC 50 Fixing Channel can be installed between studs to support recessed switch boxes / socket outlets, or a high performance socket box detail used where higher acoustic performance is required. Tiling For further details on tiling guidance Refer to section 13 – Finishing systems and decorative effects, Tiling.
