PROPERTIES

Easy to install – owing to point fixing the application (installation of  disc anchors and lining boards) can be done by one person.

Quick progress of work – fixing full-size boards is limited to two stages: drilling holes where the anchors will be inserted and screwing plasterboards to the discs with steel screws.

Smooth adjustment of space between boards and substrate as well as inclination angle of the lining (±27°) – the distance between plasterboards and substrate can be adjusted at will, regardless the wall geometry or the plasterwork, within the range of 10-200 mm, and – in case of ceilings – with extensions even up to 500 mm.

No requirements concerning the preparation of substrate - no levelling, hacking off cracked plasterwork, priming, etc. is necessary – plasterboards can be accurately fixed upon very uneven or cracked plasterwork as well as upon inclined walls, etc.

Possibility of correcting the wall geometry in case of not right-angled concave and convex corners – the anchors can be used additionally for plasterboards bonded to substrates of major irregularities (> 20 mm). They can then be fixed locally in the most uneven places instead of bonding the boards with adhesive.

Collision-free distribution of electrical installations, water and sewage pipes as well as ventilation shafts under the plasterboard lining – in case of existing pipes or cables, the anchors ensure quick fixing of plasterboards and keeping necessary stability.

 

ATLAS M-system 3G can be combined with:

- traditional technologies, such as ceilings coated with gypsum plasters,

- elements of two or more layer ceilings fixed with 120 PP, 120 ZN or 120 N anchors,

- plasterboards fixed to frames.

 

Reduced risk of cracks – point fixing compensates tensions of  individual boards already during the installation. Once plastered, the boards form rigid structure, so that no further tensions can occur between them and no cracks would appear at the seams. The structure is separated from the cladding of the adjoining walls and ceiling by expansion joints and therefore keeps space for further deformations.

Quick installation of plasterboard casings – partially lowered ceilings, casings upon walls, etc. can be quickly installed in the relevant zones of walls and ceilings next to previously plastered elements in order to complete the interior finishing.

Possibility of reduction of space between the lining and the substrate down to 1 cm – in order to minimize the loss of space in a room.

Easy and safe to transport and storage – system elements are small and can be transported with passenger cars, which is not possible in case of solutions with frames. System elements do not take up much storage space and can be stored on limited areas outdoor or in a car.

Installation of mounting discs under casing of walls made of: concrete, bricks, concrete blocks, hollow bricks, massive timber and wood-based boards, layered boards with polyurethane foam (PU) core or expanded polyurethane (EPS) core.

 

Necessary typical tools: screw gun, drill with ø10/12 mm drillbits of length of min. 120 mm, cross laser marker, spirit level, ruler, compasses, plasterboard cutter, metal trowel, scraper, etc.

 

Step by step work order.

1. Assembly of disc and steel pin.

Screw the disc to the fixing screw with a hex key.

2. Determination of quantity and anchors spacing.

-    In case of plasterboard lining in accordance to Table 7. Along the shorter side of plasterboard the anchors should be placed at intervals of 60 cm, so that the boards are supported at these side at three points.

-  In case of lining made of other materials (e.g. OSB boards, cement fibre boards, etc.), the spacing of anchors has to be determined in accordance to the type of lining, the type of room, the weight of the material and the specified loads. In any case, the maximum distance between anchors should not exceed 60  x 60 cm, the minimum spacing is 40 x 40 cm.

3. Division of boarding surface into individual boards.

Draw the contours of boards on the wall.

4. Outlining the anchors location.

With the help of a spirit level or a laser marker, draw a horizontal line on the wall at a height of 40, 50 or 60 cm from the floor, in accordance to the required spacing.

5. Marking the fixing point for the first anchor.

This point is located at intersection of the vertical line (defined in step 3) and the horizontal line (defined in step 4).

6. Marking the middle anchor locations (in the middle of the board) and the joint anchor locations (along the adjoining edges of two boards).

Use a compasses to do this in order to ensure the required spacing. Start from the point defined in step 5.

7. Marking the locations of the outermost anchors (along the edges of walls, floor and ceiling).

Draw lines on the substrate along these edges, at a distance of 7 cm from the edges. The outermost anchors will be placed on these lines in accordance to the required spacing.

8. Drilling the holes.

a.      If the anchors are to be screwed in mineral substrate, e.g. concrete, bricks or perforated ceramic bricks, holes have to be drilled in the marked points with a ø 10/12 mm drill bit to the depth of min. 50 mm (see Table 1). The depth of the hole is dependent on the length of the anchor and the required distance of the board from the wall. Example: for an L100 anchor and required distance of 20 mm, the hole should be 80 mm (100 mm – 20 mm = 80 mm) deep. In order to ensure the possibility of final adjustment of the location of the anchor, we recommend to drill the holes 30-50 mm deeper, depending on the unevenness of wall. Insert the plastic fixing sleeves into the holes.

b.        If the anchors are to be installed in massive timber, the drill holes have to keep a diameter of ø 4 or 6 mm (in accordance to the diameter of the fixing screw of ø 6.5 or ø 8.5 mm) and depth of min. 50 mm (see table 1).

c.        For the installation of the anchors in wood-based boards, the drill holes have to keep a diameter of ø 6 or 8 mm (corresponding to the expansion sleeves for wood M6 L24 or M8 L24) over the entire thickness of the board (see table 1).

9. Screwing-in the anchors.

Use a laser marker in order to mark the vertical plane for the wall lining, the so-called curtain. The distance of the curtain from the wall should be a few centimetres greater than the planned final distance of the lining boards from the wall. Screw in the first anchor at its defined location. Mark the line indicating the curtain on the housing of the screw gun. Then screw in the anchors one after the other until the laser marker line coincides with the line on the screw gun housing.

10. Control of the plane.

Check the accuracy of the plane of the anchors with a min. 2 m long straight edge vertically, horizontally and diagonally. In case of deviations, correct the screw-in depth of the anchors. Set the discs and anchors precisely in one plane.

11. Installation of the lining.

Start by screwing the first board to the middle section of the wall. The board should be installed on plasterboard supports. The board must not adjoin the edges of wall, ceiling or floor. It must also not lie directly on the substrate which it is fixed to. Fix each disc with 4 screws included in the set. On the middle and outer discs, the screws should form a cross. On the joint discs (at the adjoining edges of boards), the screws should be parallel to the edges of boards, two screws in each board.

12. Processing the boards.

Fill the joints between the boards with gypsum filling compound ATLAS GIPS STONER and reinforce it with paper, interfacing or tuff tape. Secure outer corners with perforated aluminium angle trims and gypsum filler PLUS GIPSAR. In the inner corners the boards can be adjoined in traditional manner. The use of sliding connections is permissible.

 

Installation of anchors under flat ceilings lining on monolithic, prefabricated or densely ribbed ceilings.

Necessary typical tools: screw gun, drill, cross laser marker, spirit level, ruler, compasses, board cutter, metal trowel, scraper, etc.

 

Step by step work order.

1.      Assembly of disc with steel pin.

Screw the disc to the fixing screw with a hex key.

2.      Determination of quantity and anchors spacing.

- In case of plasterboard lining in accordance to Table 7. Along the shorter side of plasterboard the anchors should be placed at intervals of 60 cm, so that the boards are supported at these side at three points.

-     In case of lining made of other materials (e.g. OSB boards, cement fibre boards, etc.), the spacing of anchors has to be determined in accordance to the type of lining, the type of room, the weight of the material and the specified loads. In any case, the maximum distance between anchors should not exceed 60  x 60 cm, the minimum spacing is 40 x 40 cm.

3.      Division of boarding surface into individual boards.

Outline the edges of boards on the ceiling.

4.      Drawing the lines on which the anchors are to be installed.

With the help of a spirit level or a laser marker, draw a line on the ceiling parallel to the plane of the longest wall (perpendicular to the edges of boards) at a distance of 40, 50 or 60 cm, in accordance to the required spacing of the anchors.

5.      Marking the fixing point for the first anchor.

This point is located at intersection of the line defined in step 3 and the line defined in step 4.

6.      Marking the middle anchors location (in the middle of the board) and the joint anchors (along the adjoining edges of two boards).

Use a compasses to do this in order to ensure the required spacing. Start from the point defined in step 5.

7.      Marking the locations of the outermost anchors (along the edges of ceiling).

Draw lines on the ceiling along the walls, at a distance of 7 cm from the walls. The outermost anchors will be placed on these lines in accordance to  the required spacing.

8.      Drilling the holes.

Drill holes at the marked points with a ø 8 mm drill bit to a depth of min. 50 mm (see Table 1). The depth of the hole depends on the length of the anchor and the required distance of the board from the ceiling. Example: for an L100 anchor and a required distance of 20 mm, the hole should be 80 mm (100 mm – 20 mm = 80 mm) deep. Insert the plastic fixing sleeves into the holes.

9.      Screwing-in the anchors.

For lining a ceiling, install the laser marker so that it marks the horizontal plane, the so-called curtain. The distance of the curtain from the ceiling should be a few centimetres greater than the planned final distance of the lining boards from the ceiling. Screw in the first anchor at the defined point. Mark a line indicating the curtain on the housing of the screw gun. Screw in the anchors one by one until the line of the laser marker coincides with the line on the screw gun housing. If the distance between the lining boards and the ceiling must be greater, extend the fixing elements 3GL M8/M6 or 3 GL M8/M8 with the extension elements 3 GL PLUS M6 or 3 GL PLUS M8 consisting of a metric bolt and a metric fixing element M6 or M8 by means of connecting nut secured on both sides with lock nuts M6 or M8. Screw in the anchors one by one until the line of the laser marker coincides with the line on the screw gun housing.

10.   Control of the plane.

Check the accuracy of the plane of the anchors with a min. 2 m long straight edge in all directions. In case of deviations, correct the screw-in depth of the anchors. Set the discs and anchors precisely in one plane.

11.   Installation of the lining.

Install the first board. The board must not adjoin the edges of walls. It must also not lie directly on the substrate which it is fixed to. Fix each disc with 4 screws included in the set. On the middle and outermost discs the screws should form a cross. On joint discs (at the adjoining edges of  boards), the screws should be parallel to the edges of boards, two on each board.

12.   Processing the boards.

Fill the joints between boards with gypsum filling compound ATLAS GIPS STONER and reinforce it with paper, interfacing or tuff tape. In the inner corners the boards can be adjoined in traditional manner.  The use of sliding connections is permissible.

 

 Installation of anchors under lining of multi-layer ceilings on monolithic, prefabricated or densely ribbed ceilings.

Necessary typical tools: screw gun, drill, cross laser marker, spirit level, ruler, compasses, board cutter, metal trowel, scraper, etc.

 

Step by step work order.

1.      Assembly of disc with steel pin.

Screw the disc to the fixing screw with a hex key.

2.  Determination of quantity and anchors spacing.

-  In case of plasterboard lining in accordance to Table 7.  Along the shorter side of plasterboard the anchors should be placed at intervals of 60 cm, so that the boards are supported at these side at three points.

- In case of lining made of other materials (e.g. OSB boards, cement fibre boards, etc.), the spacing of anchors has to be determined in accordance to the type of cladding, the type of room, the weight of the material and the specified loads.  In any case, the maximum distance between the anchors should not exceed 60 x 60 cm, the minimum spacing is 40 x 40 cm.

3. Division of boarding surface into individual boards.

Outline the edges of boards on the ceiling.

4. Drawing the lines on which the anchors are to be installed.

With the help of a spirit level or a laser marker, draw a line on the ceiling parallel to the plane of the longest wall (perpendicular to the edges of boards) at a distance of 40, 50 or 60 cm, in accordance to the required spacing of the anchors.

5. Marking the fixing point for the first anchor.

This point is located at intersection of the line defined in step 3 and the line defined in step 4.

6. Marking the middle anchors location (in the middle of the board)

and the joint anchors (along the adjoining edges of two boards).

Use a compasses to do this in order to ensure the required spacing. Start from the point defined in step 5.

7. Marking the locations of the outermost anchors (along the edges of ceiling).

Draw lines on the ceiling along the walls, at a distance of 7 cm from the walls. The outermost anchors will be placed on these lines in accordance to the required spacing.

8. Drilling the holes.

Drill holes at the marked points with a ø 8 mm drill bit to a depth of min. 50 mm (see Table 1). The depth of the hole depends on the length of the anchor and on the required distance of the board from the ceiling. Example: for a L100 anchor and a required distance of 20 mm, the hole should be 80 mm (100 mm – 20 mm) deep. Insert the plastic fixing sleeves into the holes.

9. Screwing-in the anchors.

 For lining a ceiling, install the laser marker so that it marks the horizontal plane, the so-called curtain.  The distance of the curtain from the ceiling should be a few centimetres greater than the planned final distance of the lining boards from the ceiling. Screw in the first anchor at the defined point.  Mark a line indicating the curtain on the housing of the screw gun.  Screw in the anchors one by one until the line of the laser marker coincides with the line on the screw gun housing.  If the distance between the lining boards and the ceiling must be greater, extend the fixing elements 3GL M8/M6 or 3 GL M8/M8 with the extension elements 3 GL PLUS M6 or 3 GL PLUS M8 consisting of a metric bolt and a metric fixing element M6 or M8 by means of connecting nut secured on both sides with lock nuts M6 or M8. Screw in the anchors one by one until the line of the laser marker coincides with the line on the screw gun housing.

10. Control of the plane.

Check the accuracy of the plane of the anchors with a min. 2 m long straight edge in all directions. In case of deviations, correct the screw-in depth of the anchors. Set the discs and anchors precisely in one plane.

11. Installation of the lining.

Install the first board. The board must not adjoin the edges of walls. It must also not lie directly on the substrate which it is fixed to. Fix each disc with the 4 screws included in the set. On the middle and outermost discs the screws should form a cross. On joint discs (at the adjoining edges of boards), the screws should be parallel to the edges of boards, two on each board.

12. Processing the boards.

Fill the joints between the boards with gypsum filling compound ATLAS GIPS STONER and reinforce it with paper, interfacing or tuff tape. In the inner corners the boards can be adjoined in the traditional manner. The use of sliding connections is permissible.

Note: For multi-layer ceilings connecting elements of different lengths L100-L250 or extension elements should be used.
