Insulating, doubling and decorating a wall in one operation is what Ikebana® plasterboards do. If the installation of the metal frame and the insulation are traditional, that of Ikebana® sheets is revolutionary since it is done with adhesive double-sided tapes, without joint between the plates. The site gains in speed and cleanliness.
- Mesureing tape
- Powder cord
- Metal ruler
- Screwdriver drill
- Bubble level
Laying the framework
1. To mark the location of the frame on the ground, consider the thickness of the insulation and add 2 cm. Draw a marker at both ends of the wall.
2. Stretch a chalk line between the two marks. Pinch it to mark a blue line on the ground, indicating the footprint of the bulkhead and the location of the base rail.
3. Record the wall thickness dimension at the top of the walls, then draw the marker line in pencil, using a large metal ruler or framing.
4. Position the vertical profile (fur) on the wall, aligning it with the vertical line that has just been drawn (the largest wing bearing the markings towards you). Drill and anchor the wall according to its nature then screw the profile to the wall.
5. Secure the floor and ceiling rails between the vertical profiles you have just fixed. Drill, peg and screw. Warning! in case of underfloor heating, ask the trustee about the possibility of drilling the floor and the depth of the heating pipes (usually 30 mm). In this case, use dowels and very short screws (15 to 25 mm).
6. Attach a horizontal fur (profiled) 125 cm from the floor. Take two measurements, put two markers on the wall and draw a line between them. Position the fur. Peg, drill and screw the fur on the wall every 60 cm.
7. Place "renovation" supports on the horizontal fur every 60 cm. They will be used to insert the glass wool strips and to receive the support rails of the Ikebana® sheets.
1. Cut insulation strips corresponding to ceiling height plus 1 cm. Slip the insulation under the peripheral rails and rub them on the supports, face vapor barrier (kraft paper) towards you.
2. Insert the key that attaches to the supports, flush with the insulation, then turn to lock. With a hacksaw, saw the end of the support that protrudes.
3. Insert the vertical profiles between the top and bottom rails.
4. Align each profile on a support and clip it onto its key. Make sure of its verticality with a bubble level.
5. Install the different vertical profiles (every 60 cm). The installation of the frame is completed. Clean the face of the profiles with window liquid.
IKEBANA® plate cutter
1. Unpack the Ikebana® plates. In addition to the plates, the package contains an ultra-strong adhesive, and a leaflet. Place the plates on three trestles to be able to cut them to the ceiling height less than 1 cm. Wear it and put it on the trestles, face decorated towards you.
5. Draw two marks on each side of the plate to the desired length, to draw the line of cut in pencil, use a ruler or piece of rail.
6. Guiding yourself on the ruler or piece of rail, cut the cardboard layer off the plate with a cutter. Be careful not to cut yourself!
7. Give a sharp blow to break the plate that will break on the cutting line. Finish the cut by striking the cutter under the plate.
Preparation and laying of plates
1. After checking that the cut is at the correct size, rest the plate in its carton. Unroll the strip of adhesive along the edges of the plate on all four sides.
2. Apply strong pressure on the adhesive (marouflage) with a joint wheel or with the handle of a tool (here, that of a hammer).
4. Gently remove the protective film from the tape. Be careful not to touch the glue and avoid flying dust.
5. To delay glue retention and allow you to reposition and adjust the plates for a few seconds, moisten the adhesive with a slightly wet sponge or cloth.
6. Place plate slips on the floor, at the bottom of the partition, and position the plates on the framing.
7. Apply the plates strongly on the framework, not hesitating to punch on the periphery of this one to make it adhere well.
8. You can alternate the colors of the plates to obtain a decorative effect. The furniture and accessories can be returned immediately to the room.
