Durra Panel is a highly sustainable building material featuring a solid panel core and available in a wide range of finishes to suit each application. Durra Panel can be easily installed into ceiling systems, wall systems and partition walls.
For ceiling installations, Durra Panel is designed to work with both standard timber ceiling frames and their proprietary steel systems.
Timber Ceiling Frames
For areas where timber beams are providing the structural support in a ceiling, each Durra Panel requires a minimum 25mm perimeter support on all sides. This can be provided by the topside of timber beams and joists, or angles fixed to the inside of structural members.
Durra Panel Ceiling Systems
For more robust ceilings, or an all-in-one roof and ceiling build-up, Durra Steel Sections provide a total construction solution.
1. Install Durra Duplex or Durra I Beams in simple span at 1200mm spacing between structural supports and fix off to a standard 4-hole bar cleat.
2. Space Durra Cross Tee Units evenly along the length of the beam to complete the ceiling grid. These act as both lateral bridging members and panel-to-panel joiners.
3. Install Durra Panels from above, with the base flange of Durra Steel Sections providing continuous perimeter support.
4. Secure Durra Panels into the grid with wedges to complete the trafficable system and be sure to allow space for insulation and roof sheeting to be installed.
