  Method Statement Flexplus 11/04  method statement INTRODUCTION We strongly recommend that all sections of this document be read thoroughly before site installationcommences. It is important that the relevant Health and Safety legislation be observed at all times i.e., suitableclothing and equipment etc,These installation guidelines have been prepared based on the following site conditions and assumptions: - ! All materials have been checked and there are no shortages. ! All materials are suitably stored to minimise damage. ! The site dimensions compare with installation drawings. ! The partitions are to be installed to the underside of an existing suspended ceiling grid. To enable the grid to bemade good if the partitions are relocated, fixing to the main runner should be avoided. All fixings should bepositioned on 1200mm or 600mm cross tees. ! .This guide deals with basic construction principals and is not intended to cover all variations. If you are unable tofind the details that you require then please call the Tenon Technical Department on 0114 231 8030 for assistance. acoustics   Flexplus  method statement 1: SETTING OUT ! Mark the intended partition layout on the suspended ceiling by means of a chalk line. (Avoid excessive chalk lines which will not be covered by the finished partitions or alternatively remove the relevant ceiling tiles.) ! Transfer the layout to the floor and wall abutments by means of a plumb line. Where the layout shows doormodules adjacent to three way junctions and corner posts, it is recommended that a small board infill(200mm wide) is fitted into the junction post behind the door, this will allow the door to fully open through o 90. ! If the door frames are fitted directly into the three way or corner posts it is important to fix a floor mounted doorstop to restrain the door and prevent the furniture from damaging the board (or glass) behind the door when in thefully open position. ! The door stop should not be positioned too close to the base of the door frame as with continued use this will exertundue stress on the hinge fixings. Position the door stop further back towards the leading edge of the leaf. acoustics   Flexplus  method statement 2: BOARD DECORATION Always ensure that a suitable width wall covering is selected and it is applied with the manufacturersrecommended adhesive. There are three options when considering decorating the partition boards: - Factory Decorated ! Panels may be supplied with wall covering factory laminated ready for cutting and installation on site. ! To avoid damage to the pre-decorated face of the panels, care should be taken when offloading and moving theseto the working area. Pre- Decorated On site ! To minimise waste, panels should be cut to size before decorating, laid flat ensuring that they are supported at bothends on suitable benches or staging. ! Using board lengths as a guide, cut the wall covering to length leaving approximately 50mm over at each end. ! Thoroughly stir the adhesive and apply evenly to the wall covering using a lamb's wool roller, making sure that theentire surface of the paper is covered. ! Apply the wall covering to the panel and smooth out the paper using a clean spatula. Work from centre of boardoutwards to remove all trace of air bubbles or excess adhesive. ! Using a clean sharp knife blade, trim off the excess wall covering flush with the panel ends and long edges. ! Any surplus adhesive should be removed immediately with a soft cloth and clean warm water. ! Decorated panels should be laid flat, stacked face to face, and allowed to rest overnight before fitting. Decorated In Position ! This method calls for the wall covering to be applied to the panels in the upright position with the panels alreadyfitted into the partition, and should be carried out before the skirting is fitted. ! Cut the wall covering to the required “drop” leaving approximately 50mm over at each end. ! Lay the wall covering pattern side down on a clean table and apply adhesive evenly with a roller to the entire area of the paper. ! Loosely fold the paper over to roughly cover ¾ of its length, then fold the remaining ¼ in from the opposite end. ! Set the paper aside and allow to rest for 5 minutes. ! Peel back the top ¼ of the paper and slide into position at the top of board. Once aligned peel back the remainderand allow to hang loosely. ! Smooth the paper out with a clean spatula, working outwards from centre of board towards the edges. ! Working with a sharp knife blade and a clean straight edge, cut the wall covering tightly into the edges of the uprightposts and head channel. Trim the bottom edge of paper to below the height of the skirting. ! Remove any surplus adhesive immediately with a soft cloth and clean warm water. ! NB. When estimating vinyl usage it is advisable to allow a suitable wastage factor. acoustics   Flexplus
