Aluminium Tubes partition is made of anodized aluminium hollow tubes to form a grid of 610 x 610 mm. 8 mm thick Hilux boards, are then screw fixed on either side of all these studs at 200 mm centres. All the joints of the boards are filled and finished as recommended practiceto achieve a seamless finish. Feature joints like groove design can also be achieved by screwing square edge boards at required gap or decorated with wooden/metal mouldings.

Anodized aluminum frame is made by using 1.2mm thick hollow tubes, 50x50mm vertically and 25x50mm, horizontally at 610mm centres to form a regular grid of 610x610mm size. Frame joint together using L clamp. These frames are fixed to the floor and soffit at 600mm centres with nylon sleeves and wood screws.
8mm thick Hilux taper edge boards, are screw fixed to either side of all aluminium studs by self-drilling and taping screws having phillips head with under head cutter of suitable length (10 mm + thickness of the board) at 200mm centres (12 mm away from the edge and 40mm from the corners), with a gap of 1.5 to 2.0mm. The square edges of the boards are chamfered by 4x3mm or made tapered (40x1.5mm) by grinding them at site before fixing. Board joints are to be staggered to avoid through joints. Rock wool of required density can be placed in the cavity to enhance thermal and sound insulation properties.
Hilux board joints are finished with specially formulated jointing compound and 48mm wide, self-adhesive fiber mesh tape to get seamless finish.
