Gustafs Panel System® is fitted on to walls by means of Capax mounting profiles. Each panel is locked on all four sides by means of Capax profiles. The profiles are fitted on to a screwable base that is firmly anchored in the underlying construction.

  • Gustafs Panel System® can be fitted on most types of underlay. Before the fitting commences the fitter must ensure himself that the construction behind is well anchored and dimensioned in order to bear the weight of the panel wall. This applies in particular to high walls and large areas.

    In order to achieve a fully satisfactory result it is important for the underlay to be well balanced vertically and horizontally. If the panel wall is perforated or slotted and is to serve as a sound absorber, the under-construction is extended so that a space is created for mineral wool insulation and air gaps. The mineral wool shall always be placed tight behind the panel.

    Please note that the fire classification for perforated panels only is valid if mineral wool insulation is used behind Gustafs Panels. Thickness 45 mm density, 28 kg/m3 and have euroclass A1 or A2 classification.
