Rigips stand in drywall

Wherever free-standing Rigips walls are to be erected, a stand for the wall is necessary. The easiest way to build a stand with prefabricated metal profiles. They are available as so-called UW-profiles or rails and as CW-profiles or stands. CW profiles can be recognized by the inwardly folded edges, while UW profiles have straight edges. Rails are mounted on the wall and ceiling, the uprights are clamped vertically between them. Profiles are best shortened to the required length with a tin snips.

Screw or glue the stud frame?

Especially the rails on the floor can not always be screwed - be it because the ground does not allow holes, or because there is underfloor heating. Under existing underfloor heating must never be drilled in the ground! In such cases, the soil profiles are best glued with silicone. To avoid unsightly marks, just paint the finished shortened profiles in the middle of the support surface with wavy silicone patterns and press them carefully and then more firmly on the previously drawn line on the floor. If necessary, remove leaking silicone immediately with a paper towel. On most ceilings and on the wall connection, profiles can usually be easily screwed together.

How many profiles are required as a stud work?

The total length of the UW profiles results from the course of the wall. The best is marked on the ground, then you can measure the individual parts. Beware of blending - the total amount of soil and ceiling so determined should be in any case still 10 - 20 percent admit. The number of CW profiles results from the plate length: in addition to the wall connection profiles, the vertical framework should always be placed exactly at a distance of half a plate length. Of course, door openings also need a stand profile on both sides. You should also pay attention to a sufficient number of plug-in angles for attaching the CW profiles to the UW profiles.
