Use masking tape on the lines you're cutting to prevent the plywood or blockboard from splintering.
Run screws into dowels planted at cross-angles rather than trying to drive them into end grain where they have no chance of sticking.
Use a second sheet of plywood/blockboard as a rip guide when no long straight edge is available.
In many applications it's possible to finish a sheet before cutting it; do this to save quite a bit of time.
Break edges by running sandpaper from inner portion of the plywood sheet outward to the open edge.
Always use backups to prevent tear-out when drilling.
In order to achieve the best results when installing plywood products, it is very important to use the proper size nail. The pattern for nailing that is used is also very critical.
Not all plywood/blockboard applications require the same size nail or spacing between nails.
You must check before you nail
The spacing of nails on the edges of a panel are frequently different from the spacing within the panel.
Undulating plywood panels turn elegant space dividers into architectural additions, though some see them purely as sculpture. These rippling partitions stand up to ten feet, metamorphosing any room with an effusive earthy air. Some serve as multi-use functional objects.
An architectural partition is an architectural addition, a subdivision of a system, representing some commonality of function, content, or placement with the architecture. Refer to our product page for more details on DUROFLEX.
Fabric Coated Plywood
Use a damp cloth for cleaning. There is a unique coating on Fabply to help you wipe off dirt in a jiffy.
The fabric is pasted on the ply using strong glue and will not peel.
Recommended for indoor use in all possible areas in living rooms/ partitions, headboards, columns, acoustic paneling, etc.
Vertical application is highly recommended but use in horizontal applications can also be done by matching the patterns of the designs.
Use high speed cutting tools for cutting your Fabply into small panels.
Wood veneers are selected for blueprint specifications to match in colour and character for the desired project. Then they are carefully assembled to provide the most pleasing appearance for fixture manufacturing or wall paneling; thus achieving the desired beauty that architects and designers prefer over other materials. The natural characteristics of wood make it attractive to the eye when veneers are carefully selected for individual projects.
This method of panel matching achieves maximum grain continuity since all panels, doors and other veneered components are made to the exact veneer sequence. If possible, flitches will be selected that will yield sufficient veneer to complete a prescribed area or room. If more than one flitch is required, the transition should be accomplished at the least noticeable location. This panel matching method is more expensive, but does express veneering in its most impressive manner.
Always store the doors on a dry, clean and pucca covered floor, stack horizontally on supports so that it is minimum 9 mm from surface. This is to prevent warping, bending and twisting.
Use seasoned treated hardwood for doorframes & apply wood preservative on the door and frames. This prevents distortion in doorframes and also reduces risks of termite & powder infection.
Apply 6 mm teak wood lipping on doorframes. This increases the aesthetic look and also protects from termite, moisture etc.
Ensure that the doorframes are at right angles to one another. Always use four hinges of equal length and equal distance. This enables proper alignment between door panel & frame.
Ensure that the gap between the door and finished floor does not exceed 5 mm. This helps in achieving optimum thermal & acoustical performance & also protects door frame from undesirable friction.
