The boards must be assembled without exposing them to pressure. The bending of the boards due to pressure could damage the board’s or base wall structures’ joints and attachment points. Carbide saw blades K10, DIN 4990 are the best for cutting of the boards. The cutting speed is 2 – 2.5 meters per second and feeding rate 3 – 3.5 meters per minute. Holes should be drilled at least three millimeters larger than the holes in the base wall structure. The boards should be assembled with minimum of five millimeters seams.
Storing and transportation
The boards should be stored and transported on flat surface and kept dry. The boards should be supported for the entire board area to avoid bending. The boards must be carried always on their side. Stacks of boards should not be higher than one meter. The boards must be protected from humidity at the work place using waterproof covers or storing the boards under roof.
