2 C-section galvanized steel frame (C) or C-type galvanized steel frame Used for setting to accept gypsum board or smart board. This C frame is the strength of light walls ever. Most of which are installed with a distance of 40-60cm. But the smaller the distance, the stronger it will be.
3 Gypsum board is a sheet used to cover light walls, most of which use a thickness of 9mm. This gypsum board will have both sloping and non-sloping edges. The author recommends using the sloping edge because the two sheets are already joined together. The joint will sink slightly so that the joint can be effectively retained and the wall is not too convex.
4 smart board It is a sheet that is used to cover light walls. We use it in cases where we want to attach things to the wall. Because the gypsum board cannot hold the screws. But the smart board can tighten the screw fixing nut. Therefore, the wall can be decorated with a TV or shelf that does not hold a lot of weight. This makes the light wall work more versatile.
5 Sound-absorbing panels are sound-absorbing panels that are installed within the walls between the C-frames. This soundproofing sheet is sold in many brands with popular sizes: 40x120cm and 60×120, thickness 5-10cm. But most of them use a thickness of 5-7cm. Because it can fit with the thickness of the C frame. Because the C frame is 6.5 cm wide. Most sound-absorbing pads are made from quality felt, depending on the manufacturer of that brand. but have the same features The selection will depend on whether the job requires sound reduction or not.

By use, the plaster cloth is used to prevent the gypsum from drying and cracking, as well as for the smoothness of the joints. and then plastered with gypsum powder mixed with water Most will put together 2 rounds. The first round will be plastered to keep the joints. As for the second round, the plaster marks will be wider than the first plaster marks. That is to make the joints look smooth and rounded with the sheet itself.
