Knauf Safeboard can be installed similarly to conventional gypsum boards. However, apply boards horizontally as cladding of partitions.
If the boards are used as cladding of suspended ceilings, the max. axial spacing of the furring channels is reduced to 312.5 mm.
In order to avoid dust formation it is recommended to break the boards (score board liner with knife and break board along an edge, cut rear side board liner). Rework and bevel edges with Hand Rasp.
Use Knauf Diamant Screws XTN for fastening of the boards on metal or timber substructure. Fill all joints (board joints and connections) with Safeboard Filler fully, i. e. continuously and over the entire cladding thickness of all Safeboardcladding layers (fi rst fi lling run).
