Particular care should be fixed to support bars in the areas of the corners of the walls. The distance between the bars depends on the thickness of boards: plating thickness 10 mm are typically used to cover walls for supporting bars, spaced at 400-600 mm. Sheathing of boards of greater thickness (12 mm) recommended for surfaces separate elements and must be sufficiently rigid when the distance between the supporting bars of 500-600 mm.
There are various ways of fastening the sheathing to the supporting bars. The fastest and easiest way is “open” — using nails with exposed heads. They are arranged in neat rows and clogged with the help of the punch to avoid damage to the surface with a hammer. Holes for nails can be subsequently sealed.
