Recommended tools

For pre-drilling (8-12 mm) we recommend our hammer drills HB 44444, or our concrete drills. For the 2nd hole, we recommend our hammer drill HB 16160.



Step one: drill the outer plaster layer of the insulation panel (using a drill bit d = 8 mm - 12 mm) (Fig. 02). Step two: drill the insulation material with a 16 mm bit, 15 - 25 mm deep, without percussion, to guide the plug. (In soft wood fibre boards: drill 90 mm deep with the 16 mm bit). Use a 13 mm open-end wrench and carefully screw in the fitting (mount) while applying pressure from behind with the ball of the thumb, while using work gloves (Fig. 03) until the thread takes hold, and align it vertically and horizontally. Screw the fitting further in, constantly checking the vertical and horizontal alignment and correcting it by applying lateral pressure. Turn the fitting until the foam seal is compressed (Fig. 04). The large cover plate must be in contact with the plaster in order to act as a pressure plate. Once all the fittings have been installed, the trellis is placed in the grooves of the mounts, aligned and fixed using the grub screws.

To tighten the grub screws, hold the fitting with a wrench on the flat nut while screwing the grub screws tight.
