Factory Drywalls Duraweld
Paul contacted us to assist with factory drywalls and installation at Duraweld in Stormill as part of their new offices, repair to existing offices and new dust proof printing room.
He already had a clear picture in mind of the layout required and had specific standards to meet specifically when it came to the dust proof room.
The new factory drywalls for the printing room where a multi-million printer was to be installed, was installed in an empty section of the factory floor.
The factory drywalls was fixed to existing wall, pillars and concrete slabs with aluminium door frames fitted.
Several sections of factory drywalls which was damaged by forklifts had to be demolished and rebuild. Existing factory drywalls also had to be extended to ensure sound reduction for staff using these offices.
After all dry wall was completed the electrical articulation was completed .
The dry wall was then painted two coats low sheen.
As can be seen the final product was not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing and fully caters for Pauls’ business requirements.
The structure was created from galvanized floor track which was fixed to the floor with nail in screws, aluminium natural anodized wall channel fitted to the concrete slabs and walls where required and galvanized studs as per supplier recommendation. Corner sections done with galvanized angle and all secured with drywall screws.
It needs to be noted that accuracy when constructing the factory drywalls is of utmost importance. If the structure is poorly constructed the end product will be of poor visual quality.After the drywalling structure was completed 12.5mm Gypsum board cladding was used.
Windows was fitted using natural anodized aluminium glazing sections, natural anodized beads, bubble gasket and 6.38mm safety glass.
Doors fitted had natural anodized aluminium frames, natural anodized hinges, medium duty hollow core doors and standard lock sets.
Joint was then fiber taped and two coats Rhinoglide applied. Once dry, the joints was sanded to a smooth finish in preparation for painting.
It was an absolutely a pleasure not only meeting Mr Malan but to be honored to do this project for him.
Well done to the team!!!
