  • Fixing Options

    Atkar Group have developed a number of proprietary concealed fixing systems that are designed especially for Au.diSlot. These systems are integrated and factory fitted to the panel to ensure that the end-product is installed easily, safely, and to the highest standard of quality and finish.

    Face Fix

    The most cost effective option is to face fix Au.diSlot using the supplied screws and colour-matched screw decals. These decals offer a very seamless finish. Ask us to see an example.

    Concealed Fixing Systems

    Atkar Group have developed a range of concealed fixing systems (our Au.diMount Fixing Range) that allows for the secret fixing of our timber substrate panels, providing a seamless and integrated look. Au.diMount can be used in either a suspended ceiling configuration using standard furring channel system components, or directly fixed to the wall or ceiling sub-structure, allowing simple installation.

    There are a number of considerations required when selecting the most suitable concealed system for your project. It is best to finalise all details including the panel application, orientation and joint type, along with any other installation conditions and budgets.

    The table* below provides a basic overview of each of the concealed systems suitable for Au.diSlot. Please contact Atkar Group to discuss your specific requirements to ensure the most suitable system is selected.

  • Panel Cut Outs

    Small panel cut outs for light fittings, fire alarms or similar are possible with Au.diSlot.

    Cut outs can be done on site however it is recommended that this be done by Atkar Group during manufacturing as this will ensure that the cut outs do not compromise the appearance or acoustic performance of the panels.

    Cut out size and location needs to be provided during the shop drawing stage.

    Access Panels

    Access panels and other ceiling penetrations can be easily integrated into Au.diSlot. These processes should be carried out on-site during the installation of the panels.

    Standard access panel sizes are 450 x 450mm & 600 x 600mm.

  • Maintenance

    Maintenance & Cleaning

    Au.diSlot is made from a combination of particleboard or plywood substrates with either a foil, veneer, laminate or paint finish applied to the face and/or edges of the panels.

    If required, the following guidelines can be used for cleaning:

    • Remove any marks or dust with a damp cloth and dry thoroughly.
    • Stubborn stains or grease may be removed with a gentle cleaner and a soft cloth.
    • Do not use abrasive cleaning chemicals or strong solvents.
    • Adhesive tape should never be applied to the surface of the panels as this may damage the face finish.

    Storage & Handling

    The following is recommended to ensure unnecessary damage to the panels.

    • Appropriate measures should be used when unloading the panels to ensure unnecessary damage.
    • Panels should be lifted from the stack on both ends.
    • Ensure panel edges are always secure to protect them from being crushed.
    • Do not use ropes to secure panels.
    • The panels should always be kept undercover on a clean and flat surface away from rain or humidity.
    • To prevent scratching of the panels do not pull or slide over the stack
    • Never step on or walk over the stack
