Fermacell is perfectly suited for wall lining solutions, metal systems to timber as well as dot and dab fixing.
The use of Fermacell with wall lining systems creates a quick and simple way to install systems that reduce the wet trades required as the fast and simple jointing systems for Fermacell Boards Fine Surface Treatment (FST).
Metal Frame Lining Systems
The use of Fermacell with metal frame dry lining systems allows a dry system to be installed for lining walls where the background may be unsuitable for “dabbing”, where the existing wall may be out of true or the surface may not allow the adhesion of the Fermacell Bonding Compound.
Metal frame systems allow the system to be fixed directly to the existing wall allowing different cavity widths to be accommodated. This can be as little as 15 mm with a metal furring system. Insulation and vapour barriers can be installed behind the Fermacell Boards. Where possible place the insulation between the battens and the wall where there is a narrow cavity otherwise this will reduce its overall effectiveness and may cause cold bridging.
As with plasterboard Fermacell can be fixed to a timber batten fixed directly to the substrate using suitable fixings.
Direct Bond (dabbing)
Fermacell Boards can be bonded directly to masonry backgrounds using Fermacell bonding compound.
