The final touch on a residential renovation in Melbourne, the Elwood House feature wall design runs up the entire length of the wall of the lounge area and extends overhead onto the ceiling.
Bringing a geometric, floor to ceiling design with timber veneer panels to life had the potential to be a nightmare in the making, but not for Sawdust Timber Furniture, who used Fastmount™ to sidestep the drawbacks of sequential paneling, and create a perfectly aligned yet secure finish on the wall and ceiling panels.
“We used Fastmount™ because I couldn’t find anything else that would achieve the results needed,” said Matt Ibbott of Sawdust Timber Furniture.
The choice of Fastmount™ would prove to tick a number of boxes for the fit-out: non-sequential installation, simple removability, and precise finish.
The Sawdust team recessed the PC-SF1 into the plastered timber frame with screws, and installed the heavy-duty PC-M2H male clip into the Blackbutt veneer panel, to create a secure hold. With a 10kg pull out load, the PC-M2H was the perfect solution for ceiling panels requiring both security and removability. With precision being the most important factor in an installation like this, the use of Fastmount™ allowed for a consistent and precise negative detail around all edges of the panels to achieve the stunning final result.
