Fit a cellular concrete partition with door block

Cellular concrete is the ideal material for partitioning. It tends to replace more and more plaster tile, much heavier and more difficult to assemble. The integration of a door block is also easy, which ensures a flow to the new space created. Leave one day between the top of the partition and the ceiling to not clamp it (it could split quickly). You will fill it with plaster or mastic-glue assembly.

Necessary material

  • Measuring and tracing kit (pencil, meter,
  • felt, mason's rule, bubble level)
  • Bubble level
  • Universal pliers
  • Cordless drill
  • Hammer
  • Rubber mallet
  • Wood saw
  • Cellular concrete saw
  • Notched trowel
  • Trowel
  • Spatula
  • trowel
  • Auge
  • Cellular concrete tiles
  • Resilient bands
  • Mastic adhesive
  • Bonding mortar for aerated concrete
  • Door
  • Cleats
  • brackets
  • Sealing tabs

Steps

  1. Determine the position of the partition
  2. Lay the resilient tape
  3. Lay the door
  4. Lay the first tiles
  5. Ask the following tiles
  6. Finish the pose

Determine the position of the partition

Measure the distance between the partition and the bottom of the room

Measure the distance between the partition and the bottom of the room

1. Start by choosing the location of the partition you will create. Measure the distance between your partition and the bottom of the room.

Draw the benchmarks of the partition to the chalk

2. Take this measurement at both ends of the future wall and trace the marks with the chalk.

3. Measure the width of your door and then measure it on your path.

4. Locate the location of the partition on your wall with the ruler and bubble level. Do the same on the second wall and on the ceiling. Make a new path offset from a concrete tile thickness to materialize the wall, then repeat the tracing gestures.

Lay the resilient tape

Lay the resilient tape on the partition mark

Lay the resilient tape on the partition mark

1. Start by sticking the resilient tape to the spot where you have materialized the partition.

2. Then using the square mark a mark 1 cm from the bottom of the door and saw.

3. Glue the frame and lay the resilient strip.

Lay the door

Center the door on the thickness of the partition

Center the door on the thickness of the partition

1. Place the door on its future location centering on the thickness of the wall.

2. Wedge the frame with cleats on each side.

Check the verticality and horizontality of the frame with a bubble level

3. Check the verticality and horizontality of the frame using the bubble level, and adjust with shims if necessary.

4. Your door is in place, you can attach it to the floor. Screw the square into the frame, then drill and peg the square.

Lay the first tiles

Bend the tabs at 90°

Bend the tabs at 90°

1. Prepare the sealing tabs. Bend them first at 90° then bend the anchors slightly to better seal them in the cellular concrete tiles.

Cut the tile according to the size of the anchor

3. Make a haircut with a handsaw.

4. Prepare the mortar in the trough, referring to the instructions for the quantities. Mix until you obtain a homogeneous mixture.

5. Seam the frame and press the first tile.

6. Paste the notch and seal the paw in the tile.

Check the plummet level and screw the bracket into the frame

8. Measure the remaining space for the length of tile to be cut. Post and cut.

9. Glue the tile already laid and the side of the cut tile.

10. Slide the 2nd tile, wipe off the excess mortar, and check plumb with the bubble level.

2. Begin the next line with the last tile dropped if it is at least 20 cm. Otherwise, like here, start with a half-tile.

Glue the frame and the top of the tiles with the notched trowel

3. Glue the frame and top of the tiles with the notched trowel to evenly distribute the glue. Optimize the adhesion of the tiles laid with the rubber mallet.

4. Continue the pose by repeating the same operations.

Remove the support structure as soon as the door is stable

5. When the door frame is sufficiently stable, you can remove the support brackets.

Finish the pose

For the last line, measure the remaining height of the ceiling

For the last line, measure the remaining height of the ceiling

1. For the last line, measure the remaining height. Carry the measurement and remove 1,5 cm to facilitate the pause.

2. After gluing, lay the tile.
