Building walls with VELOX panels is simple. The panel structure is built up around the floor plan, usually starting from a corner of the building. The panel structure then stands, in its entirety, around the proposed floor plan.
Creating a corner
The panels are mounted so that the first is fitted 50mm from the corner of the building with more ties placed at regular intervals. The last tie should be placed about 50mm from the end of the board.
Simply rotate the board 180° on its ties.
Place the internal panels into the ties making sure the end of a panel goes into a tie. The outer and inner boards must overlap by at least thickness of a board. Therefore it’s best to start construction with one whole and one half board.
Double-sided ties should always be placed directly above the previous row of ties, on both the internal and external panels. Ties are positioned as before – the first tie should be positioned about 50mm from the corner and then at 250mm intervals. The last tie is always fitted about 50mm from the end plate.
The next internal panel is assembled at a right angle to the first and nailed in place.
