wedi building boards can also be used with wooden and metal frameworks. In such cases, wedi building boards with thicknesses of 10 mm or more are used to create a clean substrate for tiling, as well as a sturdy structure. To apply the wedi building board quickly and easily, a wooden or metal structure whose sections are perfectly perpendicular and flush should first be mounted on the load-bearing substructure. The maximum distance between the metal and wooden frameworks must not exceed 600 mm. When reducing the distance between the wooden and metal frameworks from 600 mm to 300 mm, boards with a thickness upwards of 10 mm or 12.5 mm can also be applied.
Step 1aTightly screw the building board to the wood or metal stud frame using wood or drywall screws and wedi Tools insulating board discs…
Step 1b… or glue it to the wood or metal stud frame using wedi 610 adhesive and sealant.
Step 2aIn wet areas, apply wedi 610 adhesive sealant to the joints. Then, the joints should be reinforced by using wedi Tools self-adhesive reinforcement tape.
Step 2bJoints and holes can alternatively be sealed with wedi Tools sealing tape and tile adhesive.
Step 3The tiling or plastering can then be carried out.
