▸ Guidelines For Finishing Off Internal and External Corners.

When to Use These Guidelines

These guidelines apply when using any Easycraft wall linings for internal applications.

Tools and Equipment

  • Tape Measure
  • Hammer or Nail Gun
  • Pencil
  • A caulking cartridge gun
  • A hand or power saw
  • A P1 or P2 Dust Mask
  • A Planer
  • Safety Glasses to comply with AS1337

Consumables

  • PVA adhesive or flexible gap filler for gluing corners together and mouldings in place.
  • Nails - You will require some small nails when using the methods outline below that require a timber moulding be used. Ask your supplier of the moulding what they recommend.

Cutting

  • Easycraft products can be easily cut with a handsaw or a power saw. When using a power saw, cut with the face side down.  When using a handsaw, cut with the face side up.

Always use a face mask and safety goggles when cutting Easycraft products.

Finishing External Corners

Refer Drawings Finishing External Corners.

Butt Join Method

Apply a little PVA adhesive or flexible gap filler to the edge of the sheets where they join. Only fix sheets to the studs. Refer Drawings Finishing Butt Join Method.

Mitre Joint Method

External Corners can be joined using a mitre joint. This joining method can be difficult and is not recommended to anyone not experienced in joinery or carpentry trades.

Dowel Method

The dowel method will result in a in a very unique detail to the corner. Fix the first sheet, ending at the corner, so that the end is flush with the corner stud.  Cut the second sheet so that it ends flush with the corner stud creating a "V".  Fill the "V" with a 9.5mm diameter dowel. Apply a little PVA adhesive or flexible gap filler to the dowel before fixing it to the stud.

Timber Moulding Method

Fix the first sheet ending at the corner.  Fix the second sheet ending at the corner and cover with a moulding.  Apply a little PVA adhesive to the timber moulding of your choice and nail it in place.

Finishing Internal Corners

Refer Drawings Finishing Internal Corners.

Butt Join Method

Scribe sheet into corner, allowing a 3mm gap to the stud.  Butt the second sheet up the first.  You may need to "scribe" the second sheet if the wall is out of plum.

Timber Moulding Method

Fix the first sheet ending at the corner.  Fix the second sheet ending at the corner and cover with a moulding.  Apply a little PVA adhesive to the timber moulding of your choice and nail it in place.
