Tee Joint Panel System

This is the most economical panel utilising white Upvc fixing sections. The panels have cut edges on all four sides. The Upvc sections serve two functions. One is to decoratively mask the edges and the other is as structural fixing sections. This system is the most flexible as panels can be cut on site to suit wall dimensions.

Butt Joint Panel System

This eliminates the requirement of a tee joint section as this panel has reinforced long edges and the fabric facing is wrapped around the two long edges of the panel. This results in a neat, crisp butt joint between the panels.

InstallationInstallation to Walls
Panels are installed using impaling clips and Gluesorba contact spray adhesive. This method allows the panels to be fixed direct to concrete, brickwork, wood, plaster or metal.

There are different depths of impaling clips for 25mm thivk panels and for 40mm panels. A site installation guide is sent with each delivery.

Installation to Ceilings
Panels greater than 1200 x 600mm should not be fixed to ceilings unless other mechanical methods are used such as "Z" clips. The total number of "Z" clips used will differ depending on the panel sizes. Please request a full installation guide for this method.

 

Please refer to and work from the installation details given in the product brochure.
