Installing Knauf Moisture Panels
Installing Knauf Moisture Panels is similar to the install of standard drywall. The green board itself is still has a Gypsum core so structurally it is very similar.
To install a Knauf Moisture Panel, you would first need to measure the area that you would like to add your drywall to. Once you have done this, you need to score the measurements you have taken. This can be done with a Stanley blade. When the green board is scored, it can be bent to snap along the score line. Make sure you use a knife to cut through the paper.
We recommend using metal brackets and frames to fit the drywall. If you do use metal fixings then ensure your metal profiles are in place securely. You can directly fix the moisture resistant panels to the metal profiles using screws. Make sure you use screws that will not rust. Ensure that all of the gaps around the panels are sealed with plaster compound and jointing tape. Use sandpaper to sand down the joins to give a smooth finish. Two coats of drywall sealer can be applied to the face of the plasterboard wall to give it additional moisture protection. Painting the walls with a waterproof base coat and layering it with interior paint will further help prevent moisture and therefore mold and fungus.
How to store Knauf Moisture Panels
In order to protect the green board from any damage, measures should be put in place to store the plasterboard correctly. The Knauf Moisture Panel should be stored flat and protected from harsh weather conditions. This green board is not suited for areas that are continuously damp, humid or above 50°C. When handling Knauf Moisture Panels, be sure to use the appropriate PPE and equipment. This includes the use of gloves and protective glasses as plasterboard can be an irritant to the skin. Face masks can also be used to protect against inhalation of plasterboard dust, which should not be ingested.
