INTERIOR LINING SYSTEM
Tagboard by Durapanel is a fast and simple lining solution, ideal for commercial offices, industrial sheds, residential homes and garages.
Tongue & grooved panels simply require standing and fixing to an existing structure. Tagboard has excellent screw holding capability and is optimal for spaces where fixings are limited.
GREAT FOR D.I.Y
Smooth surface ready to paint
Reduce dings & dents
Simple Toung & Grove Installation
- Installation must not begin until the building is closed in and weatherproof .
- When butt joining sheets, butt joins must be made over solid nogs.
- A minimum of 2mm panel edge clearance is recommended.
- Board surfaces should be primed or clear as soon as practical after fixing .
- Framing must be constructed to NZS3604 or equivalent with nogs/girts at 1200 centres. Tagboard 15mm ceilings can be directly fixed to rafters/trusses at 900 centres.
- The moisture content of any timber framing must not exceed 18% at the time of installation of panels.
- Panels can be fixed to timber or steel framing, 8g x 40 countersunk screws are recommended for timber framing, self tapping screws into steel.
- The use of power driven brad nails and elastomeric adhesive is an alternative fixing method
- Fill screw holes with non shrinking filler and sand flush once dry.
- Precautions must be taken to ensure that Tagboard is installed well clear of nearby heat sources such as free-standing fireplaces, heaters, ovens etc. The structural life of Tagboard may be impaired if the surface temperature exceeds 50°. Manufacturers of heat appliances must be consulted to ascertain the clearances or protection required to ensure 50° is not exceeded.
- Panels must be stacked flat and level clear from the ground.
- Panels should be stored indoors and protected from weather.
- Storage areas containing large quantities of panels should be adequately ventilated.
- Tagboard is composed of engineered strands orientated in such a way as to maximise strength and durability. Tagboard has an outer MFD fibre surface.
- A 6mm tongue is machined into one side of the panel with a corresponding groove on the other side. Both faces have a 2mm ‘V’ joint.
- Tagboard can be finished using either solvent based or water based paints installed over a suitable primer. In all instances, the paint manufacturers recommendations should be adhered to.
- Tagboard can be easily machined, grooved and routed in any direction using general woodworking tools. For best results always ensure that hand and machine tools are sharp, and always use approved eye protection when machining the product.
- Tagboard panels are intended to have a visible v-groove joint and are not intended to be flush finished.
- Ceiling linings exposed on the upper face at high temperatures and humid conditions must have insulation placed directly on the upper surface and have adequate provision for air changes within the roof space.
- Panels must be painted or clear polyurethane finished prior to building occupancy
- Tagboard must not be used for water splash areas e.g. shower linings.
Health & Safety:
- Tagboard is manufactured to meet the E zero formaldehyde potential requirement in accordance with AS/NZS 1859.1:2004 and AS/NZS 1859.2:2004 suitable for habitable dwellings.
- As with all wood and timber products, exposure to fine dust from the panels may cause skin sensitivity and respiratory problems. Suitable PPE must be worn when processing panels.
