Before you start the installation

Plan

Select Ribs on colour shade and plan your ceiling installation, we recommend mixing varying shades randomly.

The room temperature should be between 18-50 C°.

Humidity

The air humidity should be between 25-60%. The humidity in the under laying construction (concrete) should not be higher than 15%.

Step by step using 2400 mm long Linear Narrow Ribs.

STEP 1

1. Install solid wood, plywood or similar battens to the wall every 600 mm with the help of a laser-level. Every rib should be supported by 5 battens with approximately 600 mm in between the supporting points.

STEP 2

2. Optionally, install a layer of insulation material between the battens.

STEP 3

3. Optionally, install Acoustex felt with some double-sided tape to keep it in place during the installation.

STEP 4

4. Using a template, screw the Capax U-FIX-N holder to the battens. Align the U-FIX-N holders in perfect vertical or horizontal lines.

STEP 5

5. Carefully attach the Ribs to the U-FIX-N clips by using a rubber hammer.

Optional: Use Capax 3253 to support and align vertically installed ribs. If needed, carefully re-align by hitting the ends of the Ribs with a rubber hammer and using a wooden protection block.

STEP 6

6. In-line connections of ribs should be backed by the U-FIX-N 200 connector or by sharing a U-FIX-N.
