Fastframe Drylining System

The Safeguard Fastframe drylining system is intended to compliment the Oldroyd Xv Clear cavity drainage system. It provides simple method of applying plasterboard over walls that have been waterproofed using Oldroyd Xv Clear. The Fastframe system is much faster and easier to install than the “timber batten” systems that have traditionally been used for this purpose.

Metal channels eliminate the time and frustration associated with selecting straight timber equivalents and the variety of fixings can facilitate a cavity of between 20 mm and 150 mm between the membrane and the plasterboard. This cavity can be used to contain services such as plumbing and electrics.

Application

The diagram below shows the Fastframe system being used in conjunction with Oldroyd Xv Clear in a typical basement refurbishment situation.

Fastframe system – basement refurbishment

The heads of the self-sealing brick-plugs used to fix the Oldroyd Xv Clear membrane to the wall contain holes designed to accept a No 12 screw. The Fastframe system is fixed to the wall by screwing Fastframe fixing brackets into these holes. LFRD1 dryliner channels running from floor to ceiling are then fixed to these brackets at 600 mm intervals along the wall. These channels are also secured to the floor and ceiling using the LFRD9 floor/ceiling track, providing additional strength. Finally, plasterboard is secured over the Fastframe system using special self-tapping Fastframe Board Screws.

Fastframe Components

  • LFRD1 – Dryliner Channel

  • LFRD2 – Standard Reach Brackets

  • LFRD9 – Floor / Ceiling Track

  • Fastframe Fixing Screws

Fastframe Drylining System Application Instructions

  1. Install Oldroyd Brick Plugs
    Install Oldroyd Brick Plugs to the wall at 600 mm intervals to accommodate the Safeguard Fastframe Drylining System.
  2. Fix the Fastframe Reach Brackets
    Fix the Fastframe Reach Brackets to the Oldroyd Brick Plugs using a screw which doesn’t exceed the length of the plug (no. 12 screw).
  3. Fold the arms of the brackets
    The Fastframe Reach Brackets are supplied flat, so once they are installed, fold the arms of the brackets away from the brick plugs until they’re perpendicular to the wall.

    Note: The depth of the Fastframe Reach Brackets will depend upon the requirements for insulation, services, or providing a flat surface over uneven, older walls. Different sized Fastframe Reach Brackets are available, however the brackets may also be trimmed to the required depth.
  4. Position the Fastframe Floor Track
    Position the Fastframe Floor Track at the chosen distance away from the wall, but do not fix it into place yet. Position the first Fastframe Dry-liner Channel parallel to the Fastframe Reach Brackets. Where needed, also install a Fastframe Ceiling Track at this point and fix loosely with a screw at either end.
  5. Ensure that the Fastframe Dry-liner Channels are upright
    Ensure that the Fastframe Dry-liner Channels are upright and completely plumb by using a spirit level.
  6. Fix the Fastframe Floor & Ceiling Tracks
    Check that all of the Fastframe Channels and Tracks are positioned correctly, then fix the Fastframe Floor & Ceiling Tracks in place.
  7. Fix the Fastframe Dry-liner Channels
    Fix the Fastframe Dry-liner Channels to the Fastframe Reach Brackets.
  8. Fix the plasterboard
    Position the plasterboard, then fix it to the Fastframe Dry-liner Channels.
