How to insulate and decorate a wall with Ikebana®

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.

Necessary material

  • Mesureing tape
  • Powder cord
  • Metal ruler
  • Screwdriver drill
  • Hammer
  • Bubble level
  • trestles
  • Pencil
  • Cutter
  • Sponge

Laying the framework

Draw marks on the ground corresponding to the thickness of the partitioning.

Measure the thickness of the partition on the ground

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.

Tighten a chalk line, pinch it to trace the thickness of the partition to the ground.

Draw the thickness of the partition

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.

Post the thickness of the doubling on the walls, trace the location of the partitioning.

Draw the right of way of the partition on the walls

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.

Screw the vertical profiles on the walls (peg according to the nature of these).

Fix the profiles on the walls

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.

Fix the wall and ceiling profiles by pegging and screwing (attention, special precautions are necessary in case of underfloor heating!)

Fix the floor and ceiling rails

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).

Screw a fur horizontally 125 cm from the ground.

Attach a horizontal profile

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.

Have supports.

Place supports on the horizontal profile

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.

Laying insulation

Cut the glass wool strips according to the ceiling height, apply them to the wall between the profiles and insert them on the supports.

Skewer the insulation on the supports

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.

Saw the plastic supports flush with the insulation.

Saw the end of the supports

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.

Engage the vertical furrows between the floor rail and the ceiling rail.

Engage the vertical profiles between the rails

3. Insert the vertical profiles between the top and bottom rails.

Position the vertical profiles in alignment with the supports and clip on them.

Clip the profiles on the supports

4. Align each profile on a support and clip it onto its key. Make sure of its verticality with a bubble level.

Finish the frame by placing the different vertical sections (every 60 cm).

Lay the different vertical profiles

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

Install the IKEBANA® plate between at least three trestles.

Lay the plates on trestles

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.

Mark the cutting marks on the decorative face of the plate.

Post the cutting marks on the plate

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.

Guiding on a profile or a metal ruler, start the cardboard face of the plate.

Start the plate with the cutter

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!

Press the plate to break it and complete the cutter cut on the back of the plate.

Break the plate and complete the cut

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

Unroll the tape around the edge and edge of the plate.

Unroll the tape

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.

Marble the adhesive tape to strongly adhere it to the periphery of the plate.

Marouflage the adhesive tape

2. Apply strong pressure on the adhesive (marouflage) with a joint wheel or with the handle of a tool (here, that of a hammer).

Remove the protective film from the adhesive.

Remove the protective film

4. Gently remove the protective film from the tape. Be careful not to touch the glue and avoid flying dust.

To delay glue sticking tape, moisten with a sponge or cloth.

Moisten the adhesive

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.

Bring the plates to the frame to position them correctly.

Position the plates

6. Place plate slips on the floor, at the bottom of the partition, and position the plates on the framing.

Press firmly around the edges of the plates to make them adhere well.

Marouflage the plates

7. Apply the plates strongly on the framework, not hesitating to punch on the periphery of this one to make it adhere well.

Insulation dubbing is complete. Furniture and decorations can be put back in place immediately.

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.
