Important to consider during installation


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.

The 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.

Storage, installation and use conditions

Only for indoor use and not in wet rooms. Storage, Installation and Use at 18-50 C° and 25-60% humidity. The humidity in the under laying construction (concrete) should not be higher than 15%.

Installation, step by step

1. Mount the battens on a well anchored wall using a laser alignment.
2. Check that the battens are fully levelled, vertical and horizontal, adjust if necessary.
3. (For acoustic installation) Install the insulation between the joists.
4. Install the first capax profile. Remove any debris that may have fallen into the profile.
5. Sort the panels by colour and wood texture.
6. Mount the first panel on the first profile. Then attach the panel by fitting the next profile.
7. Then continue with the next panel, etc. You can also saw the panels on site if necessary. Be sure to polish the edges of the panel after cutting.
