Besides wall and floor applications, the versatile wedi building board can also be used for levelling and suspension of ceilings. Suspension height can be individually set during installation. For areas that require a fire barrier, additional backing material may need to be considered.
Step 1Install the ceiling suspension systems to the existing ceiling by using dowels, and set the desired suspension height.
Step 2Install the corresponding profiles onto the already installed support.
Step 3Screw wedi Building Panels to framework using either wedi Wood Screws and Washers (wooden frame) or wedi Self Tapping Screws and Washers (steel framework). The fastener pattern is 1 fastener per every 6 inches. Make sure to always use washers / fasteners in panel seams to ensure smooth transitions.
Step 3When installing wedi Building Panels to metal stud ceiling framework, use wedi Joint Sealant in addition to wedi Self Tapping Screws and Washers.
Step 5Seal all joints and fastener points using wedi Joint Sealant or wedi Sealing Tape. In dry areas, use wedi Self Adhesive Mesh Tape.
