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.
Fastmount distributor in Australia, Titus Tekform, helped Matt to choose the correct range for the job. 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.
The choice of the Standard Range from Fastmount would prove to tick a number of boxes for the fitout: 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.
