Plasterboard is the most popular material for building walls, decorativedesigns, niches in the walls, doorways, arches and much more.But all this requires a robust support structure.They can be manufactured from a wood, and profile.Today is very popular KNAUF partitions.This design of the drywall, frame which is made entirely of metal profile.In this case met all sorts of nuances that can harm the integrity and overall reliability.

What is Knauf technology?

Technology Knauf Drywall is first of all in the use of high-quality and reliable materials:

  • profiles;
  • drywall;
  • screws;
  • Prosekatel;
  • putty, mesh and so on.

The advantages of Knauf profile include the fact that during the docking rack with guide is not formed any unevenness and protru

sions on the surface of the wall.This is an advantage because it allows you to save money on finishing mixtures.

plasterboard Knauf mounting technology involves the use of proprietary water-resistant sheets.Materials from this manufacturer also have higher rates of stability as mechanical factors, and moisture.The range of this type of product sheets are available 5 sizes, which is much faster installation process.And as insulation and sound insulator is used exclusively mineral wool.

fasteners and hardware Knauf are made of durable types of plastic and metal products are anti-corrosion treatment.

The company manufactures a vast number of types of products, so you need to use almost all of the brand.

What are the advantages of Knauf technology?

The main difference is the Knauf products high durability and excellent quality.Therefore, Knauf drywall installation technique must be performed at the appropriate level.The technology does not allow the neglect and poor quality work.Getting to the construction of partitions on this technology should adhere to all of its principles:

  1. Before screwing drywall sheets you need to paste over the outer part of the profile of thermal insulating tape.This prevents the possibility of formation of moisture on the surface of the wall in the case of the freezing profile.
  2. Step mounting guide profile and installing rack must not exceed 60 cm, if the wall is not accompanied by any load.If the wall is hinged furniture or appliances, the number of stands and mounting step should be involved.

  3. partitions mount technology plasterboard Knauf provides for the creation of walls with maximum strength, so to enhance the individual construction sites is necessary to use a double profile (put one in one with an overlap of 10% of its width).
  4. Docking long stretches profiles should be implemented vrazbezhku or staggered.This is necessary in order to eliminate the possibility of vibrations and deformations of the finished structure.When this overlap should be at least 10 in its width dimensions.
  5. profiles to connect with each other on the technology to be applied to the limb or Prosekatel screws Knauf.
  6. In carrying out installation in areas overlapping sections should be used: Prosekatel, rivets and special screws type LN9.

  7. join plasterboard over a door or window openings are strictly forbidden in the middle.This must be done close to the edge.These measures are intended to reduce the likelihood of damage to the partition of vibration generated when the door is opened, and its weight.
  8. Window and door frames must be secured to an additional rackmount profiles that should be installed next to a gap of 30-40 mm.It should invest smaller aluminum profile with rubber gaskets.Similarly, should remain a gap between sheets of drywall that needs to pave a special compound Knauf.

If it is fully complied with instructions for installation of drywall Knauf, the partition to obtain reliable and durable.

types of partitions Knauf

By design structure knauf partitions can be of several types, depending on the number of skins:

A single two-layer

Single bilayer

  • with a single-layer skin;
  • with a two-layer skin;
  • with a three-layer skin;
  • with a single-layer cladding of Knauf superlistov moisture resistant sheets on a single frame;
  • combination with, on the one hand, and the two-layer, on the other;
  • with a three-layer shell of water-resistant sheets and intermediate steel sheets.

also performed by Knauf technology partition with channels for communication and ventilation.These include the construction S386.1 brands and C 386.2.

partition type is dependent on the purpose of the premises and the degree of sound insulation.

Partitions Knauf divided also on the frame type:

  1. double;
  2. single.

Single structure used in places that do not require thorough soundproofing and the walls are not an additional load is applied.Double used to create a robust and reliable wall, which can be hung heavy furniture and some household appliances.

partitions Construction Knauf

Consider some plasterboard partitions Knauf executed on technology:

Single frame and one layer of GOLS

Single frame and a single layer of gypsum fiber

  1. C-361 - a partition, made on a single frame and clad with a layer of water-resistantKnauf drywall sheets.It is applied on both sides firm waterproof gypsum board 12.5 mm thick, and acts as a filler of mineral wool.The main element of such structures are sheets of double-sided processing hydrophobizator.Weight 1 m2 finished structure undecorated mixtures is about 18 kg, indicating sufficient lightness and throughout the whole partition.

    Double frame with a two-layer lining

    double frame with double-layer plating

  2. C-365 - a partition, made on a double-framed and clad in two layers on both sides of sheets of water-resistant drywall.To improve the sound insulation glued over the rack with the inner sides of a special soundproof tape.The filler also acts as a mineral wool layer 2-3.This design ensures the stiffness of the partition, and high levels of sound insulation.Find out how much material you need help calculator calculate partitions.
