Instructions for Non-Load Bearing

Up to wall height of 2.7m

Install Durra Panels® vertically within a Durra® Single Channel top and bottom track or on top of a timber base plate. For double layered partition walls requiring an internal cavity, Durra Panel® can be fixed against a timber top and bottom plate.

Use biscuit connectors along the long edges of Durra Panel® and screw fix either side of the join to hold panels together.

Joins between Durra Panels® can be left undressed, filled with builder’s sealant or trimmed with Durra® Aluminum Sections.

Install skirting board and cornice to conceal top and bottom fixings to finish.
