Solid Wall Construction
Food Safety Standards 3.2.3
When Electrical and Plumbing rough-ins are complete, Gib or FC sheeting is glued and screwed on then THIS is the ideal time for us to do our application.
Screws will be visible for us to identify the studs, noggins will then need to be identified before we can start.
Each cavity will receive a 10-12mm drill hole half way up from bottom plate and one directly below noggin, both placed roughly in the centre.
Same applies to the upper wall section, one half way up and the other just below the top plate.
This is repeated for all walls in the scope of works.
Spray Foam is injected in the 2 stages from bottom to top to ensure all voids/cavities are full to prevent access from cockroaches and weevils etc.
Now complete, your guys can stop the entire wall to either sand, paint or Tile prior to kitchen equipment being installed.
To enable cost effective and hassle free installation, this process needs to be done before the installation of: Tiles, splash backs, benches and sinks, kitchen equipment and s/steel sheeting.
All wall sheeting to be glued and screwed for reinforcement strengthening. If you intend to sheet walls in thinner grade materials, please ensure you attach extra screws particularly around edges and joins.
