FRAMING INSTRUCTIONS


UCO Panel is suitable for fixing to timber or metal framing. Framing should be constructed in accordance with local building regulations and accepted building practice. Studs should be spaced at 605mm centres. Maximum distance between noggings is 1220mm.

 

Metal Frames

Metal framing members should be fabricated from light gauge sheet metal 1.2 or 1.6mm thick.

 

UCO Panel must not be fixed directly to drawn steel or hot rolled steel sections which should first be battened out with timber battens of suitable thickness.

 

Insulation

Where foil insulation is used as a climate control and moisture barrier, it should always be fixed to the outer side of the stud framework.

 

Frame Member Width At Joints

A minimum of 45mm finished plain timber is preferred for the face of a stud, or nogging under a joint to provide sufficient landing for nails or screws to be placed at the minimum recommended distance from the edge of the panel. Where necessary, pack out to provide additional landing.
