Ceiling

A timeless option with added benefits: wall and ceiling cladding with wood and panels. In order to ensure flawless results that continue to look good for years to come, the wood and panels must be fastened to the battens in a careful and precise manner. With the right SPAX screws, splitting and material wastage can be avoided, too.

The main facts at a glance

  • Decorative panels and wood profiles are a practical way to store and conceal unsightly things, from pipes and cables.
  • Because the material is extremely thin, screws should not produce any splitting.
  • With their meticulous finish, SPAX screws are ideal for fastening wood cladding to ceilings.

Ceiling and wall panels are a wonderfully practical solution for interior design – and not only because they are easy to install. Everything that might interfere with the overall aesthetic concept can also be stored behind them, from pipes and cables to light elements like LED spotlights.

Cladding always requires a substructure of planed battens, which are fastened to the ceiling. Like all constructions made of wood or wood-based products. Unlike on walls, drill points should be a maximum of 50 cm apart in order to ensure that the cladding load can be reliably absorbed. The battens themselves should not be less than this distance apart, except for crosswise counter battens. Individual profiles and panels can then be fastened to the battens with SPAX screws. Whether or not they are visible is up to you. 

What do I need to know?

 

Because wood profiles or panels are rarely thicker than 20 mm, screws must not split the material. With visible fastening, it is important to ensure the precise positioning of the screw tip. Only this way can it be inserted without damaging the sensitive coating. Of course, the screws also need to be a good aesthetic match for the project and overall interior design concept – both in terms of shape and colour. 

What solutions does SPAX offer?

 

You can see that there is a lot to consider when planning your interior design project with wood cladding. With their meticulous details, SPAX screws more than live up to this challenge: the 4CUT point reduces splitting during screw insertion, even without pre-drilling in areas with low edge clearance. For visible fastening, the MULTI head complete with milling pockets ensures that the screw sits perfectly in the wood. The raised countersunk head and pan head look great on all surfaces. Especially in the high-quality WIROX version. However, the universal screw with centre drill can also be elegantly concealed with a discreet plastic cover cap.
