INSTALLATION GUIDE - PANELS AND JOINTING INSTALLATION GUIDE - CURVED PANELS

It is possible to curve the panels. For advice on how to do


this, please contact the Knauf Technical Support.

ELEMENT LAYOUT CUTTING


• Install the panels beginning in the centre of the room. • Cut the elements to size from the front with a fine-toothed
• Install the first row with the help of string. saw.

FILLING SCREW HOLES SANDING


• Check that the screws have been countersunk. • Make sure that the filler is completely dry.
• Apply a Knauf jointing compound. Overfill slightly. • Sand with fine sandpaper until the surface is completely
• We recommend the use of Knauf “Acoustic filling knife for smooth. Be careful not to damage the cardboard surface.
holes“ in order to avoid filler getting into the perforation holes.

ACOUSTICS
• A perforated gypsum panel will lose its acoustic function if the
perforations are blocked (this applies to the front and back of
the panel).
• Where applicable, a vapour barrier should therefore always
be placed between the rafter and furrings so that it does not
come into contact with the back of the perforated panel.
• When installing Tectopanel beneath a fixed ceiling it may be
necessary to insert mineral wool (Knauf Danoline can offer
mineral wool packed in plastic) into the cavity between the
PAINTING back of the panel and the fixed ceiling. This is primarily to
ensure low frequency sound absorption.
• Make sure that the filler is completely dry and the surface is
free from dust.
• Priming should be carried out in accordance with the paint
manufacturer’s instructions.
• Use a fine short-haired mohair roller to apply the paint.
• Make sure that the paint is not too thick and avoid applying
too much paint at a time so that it does not create a “film“ over
the perforation holes.

Best Practice: Use of clean cotton gloves when handling product elements will ensure a good result and a ceiling without fingermarks.
ACOUSTICS
• A perforated gypsum panel will lose its acoustic function if
the perforations are blocked (this applies to the front and
back of the panel).
• Where applicable, a vapour barrier should therefore always
be placed between the rafter and battens so that it does not
come into contact with the back of the perforated panel.
• When installing a ceiling beneath a fixed surface it may be
necessary to insert mineral wool (Knauf can offer mineral
wool packed in plastic) into the cavity between the back of
the panel and the fixed ceiling. This is primarily to ensure low
frequency sound absorption.
• A perforated gypsum panel is dependent on an acoustic
cavity behind it in order to achieve its acoustic properties.
CEILING LAYOUT ELEMENT LAYOUT

FIRE SAFETY ENVIRONMENT


Knauf acoustic ceiling and wall products meet all the necessary fire safety requirements: Knauf acoustic ceiling and wall materials are manufactured from high grade gypsum
boards. The gypsum boards are made from the following gypsum types:
Material classes according to EN 13501-1
• A2-s1,d0 • naturally occurring gypsum, found in large quanitities in the ground
White painted ceiling tiles • gypsum produced from by-products at local power plants during desulphurisation –

Another essential prerequisite for the recycling of gypsum board is to keep the gypsum
core free from harmful additives. The main binding agent in the core is in fact water.

The acoustic felt on the back of Knauf’s perforated gypsum boards is made of cellulose
which makes it unnecessary to remove the felt before the recycling of gypsum board. In
fact, the dissolved cellulose felt gives increased flexibility to the gypsum board.

Knauf has been in the construction industry for over 80 years and thanks to our know-
how and affiliation with the Knauf group, we have the knowledge and capacity that
secures flexibility in our production, insight in the building market requirements, and the
basis for further development.

Knauf is committed to a constant future proofing of its product range and through annual
product reviews and product optimisation projects in R&D, Knauf provides adaptable
solutions that match the different demands from the market, whilst retaining their intrinsic
ability to last a lifetime. In this way Knauf can consistently deliver:

• Easy to clean solutions that maintain their acoustic and indoor climate properties for
their entire service life, even after repainting time and time again.
• Sustainable gypsum solutions that can last the lifetime of the building.
• Classic, timeless designs that maintain their aesthetical quality throughout their
entire service life.

Maintaining a high level of quality service to our customers and other stakeholders is
essential to our success and our ability to deliver what we promise. Therefore we educate
our employees to have insight in markets and the skills and competencies required to
ensure that they understand the needs and desires of all our customers. Only in this way
can we be sure that we are able to consistently deliver what we promise.

Knauf acoustic products can also be painted on site using a


short mohair roller. When painting by roller, only the surface of
the panel is painted and there will be contrast with the gypsum
core in the perforations.

It is important to avoid getting paint in the perforation holes as


this can affect sound absorption and the finished look. Therefore,
a short-haired roller must be used and the paint should not be
too thick. Do not over apply the paint in the perforated areas.
