Manual and important points of attention for the Staenis grid
Insulation screed, finished with OSB or Durelis sheets
Only place insulation screed at temperatures between 10°C and 20°C, this ensures that the insulation screed will not become silted or come loose. Also make sure that the insulation screed feels fresh/cold when placed or that the ambient temperature does not fall below 5°C.
- Place all Staenis grids in the space
- Adjust all Staenis grids to the correct height
- Fill the Staenis grid with tileable insulation screed
- Flatten the tileable insulation screed on the top of the grid
- Check the height of the grid
- Repeat until the entire room is finished
* Insulation screed is so light that you can easily walk over the grid with tileable insulation screed with a filled tub and pour it into the Staenis grid.
Placement of the Staenis grid
- Place the grids by clicking slats and legs together.
- Shorten the battens on the wall by sawing or grinding them. The maximum distance from the grid to the wall is 5 cm.
- When connecting to the wall, you can click the legs sideways into the slat to stabilise the grid. A 3rd type of click connections can be seen on both ends of the slat. This allows you to connect two slats with a side leg, by means of a slat. Note that the bar will only click in one direction.
- Use a screwdriver to adjust the Staenis grid up and down by turning the adjusting screw to the left or right.
You can achieve the highest degree of flatness with a laser that corresponds to a line on a wooden tool / lath or folding rule. Once you use a digital receiver, the insulation screed will in any case cause differences in height of a few mm. A digital spirit level is also not recommended. Try to use a digital receiver or spirit level only to set out a number of points, in order to adjust everything in between by means of a vertical adjustment, a tensioned rope or aluminium rule.
We ask you to pay close attention to the height adjustment during installation and to regularly check the flatness with a long aluminium rule or laser.
Placement of insulation screed
- Fill in the Staenis grid with insulating screed and place it just slightly higher than the top surface of the grid.
- Take a long screeding iron or aluminium rule, hold it slightly at an angle and drag all the excess insulation screed off the grid. The screed is now the same height as the top surface of the grid.
- Check and correct each square for flatness to avoid cavities in the grid.
Placement of the OSB or Durelis sheet
- Let the insulation screed dry out for a few days and then rub it extra flat using a brush, an aluminium ruler. Remove all loose isomo granules using a vacuum cleaner.
- Place an OSB or Durelis sheet on the surface and screw it into the slats of the Staenis grid. The screws must be 2 cm longer than the thickness of the wooden sheet and may have a diameter of 3.5/4/4.5 mm.
