Cutting techniques and installation

Cutting

Using a circular or jig saw Ekopanely boards can easily be adjusted to the required size and shape. In order to shorten an Ekopanely board we recommend using a circular saw blade with Widia blade 250 mm in diameter, 32 alternating teeth – we recommend grinding it (we can provide you with the blade you need – just tell us the blade diameter you require).

 

Adjusting cutting edges

Tape all cutting edges with the adhesive tape we supply, 100 mm in diameter. Tape the longitudinal section with a strip of cardboard and the cross-section with several overlapping strips of cardboard.

 

Grooving

Ekopanely boards can be grooved along the whole length. Make the grooves using a circular saw at an angle of 45°. In the transverse direction of the panel the length of the groove must not exceed 30 cm.

 

Cut-outs for electrical wiring

Cut the holes for electrical wiring boxes using a special jig saw drill 72 mm in diameter, which you can purchase from our firm. The 72 mm drilling hole is precisely prepared for the insertion of a universal box for hollow walls (type KI 68 L/1 or 2 or 3). Electrical boxes used must have minimum fire response Category E.  This meets the standards for electrical wiring in Ekopanely boards.

 

Screwing

Work with an electric screwdriver or use a drill fitted with a screwdriver bit. Do not pre-drill! When installing onto a wooden structure, use 5×100 mm screws with an EP-P1 washer. Choose suitable torque to ensure that the washer does not tear the three-layer recycled cardboard. Use 4×50 mm screws to fasten the universal wall fitting clamp (UNI wall clamp).
