Beam ceiling (milled groove for the reed insulation panels).
See „Requirements for Ceilings”.
Details on the Use and Application of Reed Insulation Panels as Insulation for a Vaulted Ceiling:
- Attach gibs (e.g. 30 x 50 mm) parallel to the ceiling beams with screws or nails.
- Apply a board formwork (e.g. d = 24 mm) between the ceiling beams (blind floor), possible to fix it to the gibs.
- The ceiling beams have to be grooved according to the thickness of the reed panel (30 mm).
Ceiling panelling from below:
- Level and cut to size the reed insulation panels, then clamp them in the corresponding groove of the ceiling beam. The panels are attached with the stalks lying parallel to the beams.
- Fix the panels to the board formwork with a centred screw and additional wood screws and insulation discs pointing diagonally into the ceiling beams (at least 6 per m²).
- Plaster the Hiss Reet panels extra with clay plaster. All over the rendering mortar a jute cloth has to be applied.
Cladding from above:
- Lay out an impact sound insulation with sewn-in ripple paper (e.g. from jute) all over the ceiling beams and the board formwork.
- Depending on the requirements: Implementation of a clay masonry wall construction (good sound insulation) or light clay bricks (good heat protection) into the interspaces of the beams.
- Lay out the floor battens on top of the ceiling beams. Attention: To avoid the transmission of impact sound the floor battens should not be screwed to the ceiling beams (floating floor).
- Place the reed insulation panels (60 mm) in the space between the floor battens.
- Lay out the timber floor, screw or nail the floor boards to the floor battens.
U-value of the construction: 0.42 W/m²K
Weight per unit area: app. 210 kg/ m²
