Home > Product Installation Guides > How to install VJ Board Pro
Intrim® VJ Board Pro offers a simple-to-install interior wall lining solution that creates a unique and stylish wall feature or ceiling lining. In this guide, we will show you the tools, and simple step-by-step instructions on installing Intrim VJ Board Pro. If you would like to talk to someone about installation, please contact us here.
Intrim VJ Board Pro sheets must be delivered to a building site after the lock-up stage, including all external windows and doors installed, fully roofed and external cladding completed, at least 2 days prior to installation. They should be stored within the building close to where they are to be finally fixed to minimise the impact of the surrounding elements including moisture content, and in order for the sheets to acclimatise.
It is preferable to lie them flat in a low-traffic area for their safety with the top sheet placed upside down to keep the top sheet clean.
If sheeting both ceilings and walls, it is best to fix the ceiling sheets first. This will then set the sheet position for the end walls – it looks best if the ceiling grooves line up with the wall grooves.
Before you begin to install your initial wall or ceiling sheet, you need to plan what Intrim corner mouldings and installation method you intend to use to complete your project.
When sheeting the walls, it is common practice to start installing your initial sheet at an internal or external corner and work around the room from that point.
Ensure you have the required tools and equipment.
To determine what length sheets are required. If we are butting the sheet to the underside of the ceiling or cornice, it is critical we leave a 10mm gap between the bottom of the sheet and the top of the floor to allow for expansion.
To determine how many sheets you require.
As determined in step 1.
These will be used for fixing points.
Then apply beads of Intense Hold Adhesive (ADH2) across the back of the sheet at approx. 300mm spacings.
Then install the first sheet by sitting on the packers, pushing the sheet sideways into the corner.
To ensure the sheet is straight.
Apply pressure over the surface of the sheet to make sure it is adhered firmly to the existing wall surface.
These tongues are interchangeable if required.
To install the following full sheets.
Allowing 5mm in corner for expansion.
Install as per previous sheets.
Allowing for a mitre join on the external corner, making sure the v join does not land on the external corner join.
On external corner.
As per previous instructions.
With mitre on external corner and 5mm gap on internal corner.
Install sheet as per previous instructions.
Including external corner.
To remove the sharp edge.
VJ Board wall panelling is ready for painting.
You may use a handsaw or an electric circular saw for cutting Intrim VJ Board Pro wall sheets. We recommend that the rear face of the sheet is positioned in a downward direction when using a handsaw, and the rear face of the sheet is positioned in an upward direction when using an electric circular saw, to minimise chip out, and form a neater finish to the cut edge.
When completing Intrim VJ Pro Board in ceiling or wall applications, there are several alternatives to choose from. Below are some typical details of our recommended Intrim moulding alternatives for completing the installation of corners and joining ends of sheets. We can help you choose mouldings that best suit your application.
A butt joint will show the end of the sheet
Cut a 45 degree mitre to create a neat finish
Mouldings can be used to cover joins in corners as shown
Another option is to use a DAR piece as shown
Scribe the second sheet so that it butts neatly up to the existing sheet.
Trim the first sheet off level with the outside edge of the corner stud. Start the next sheet level with the outside edge of the trimmed sheet. Cover the join with an external corner timber moulding.
Butt-join the corner sheets (leaving a 3-5mm expansion gap) and fit a suitable moulding (e.g. square DAR, scotia, ovolo or quad) to cover any gap between the corner sheets.
It is good practice to always study and measure the walls in a room before commencing the installation to minimise waste.
We highly recommend for your safety that you follow the below steps when installing and working with Intrim VJ Board Pro:
It is difficult to achieve a good result when butt-joining a wall or ceiling sheet as expansion and contraction over time will inevitably cause a crack in the join.
There are two options:
An acrylic sealer undercoat should be applied as the base coat if purchasing or using unprimed sheets.
The back of my sheets are raw, do I need to prime them?
Only if the sheets are likely to be exposed to moisture e.g.
If the wall contains doorways or windows that are more than 1210mm wide, you can sometimes save material by starting to sheet at one edge of the opening: i.e. you can avoid cutting a large hole out of a sheet.
To fill in heads above doorways and floor-length windows less than 1210mm wide, you can use off-cuts, rather than cut large holes out of a full sheet. This is done using an off-cut and joining this to the v-groove of the next full sheet.
NOTE: The window and door head sheets must be installed as you go, otherwise you may not end up with a gap that is a full number of boards wide. You will need to cut to the centre of the v-groove and router a groove to allow you to install the tongue in the new join.
When you have finished one wall, you can use the off-cut from the last sheet to start the next wall if the off-cut is large enough to be practical.
The Intrim VJ Board Pro tongue can be removed by pulling from one end of the tongue using pliers. The tongue is interchangeable and may be used on either side of the sheet.
