The board will bend to a radius of circa 100mm which would be impossible to achieve in plasterboard by any other method.

Yes, up to 25mm & provided it has a paper face.

Which company supplies the board does not matter at all.

It’s faster to install factory glued profiles but the cost of gluing is high and the lead time is longer.

No, but if you intend to skim you need a bead.

This joint is treated in the same way as 2 short sides of normal flat boards – as per the manufacturer’s instructions (3mm gap, taped and filled with jointing compound).

This is a question we put to Warrington who advised us no manufacturer has ever tested a beaded corner. In Warrington’s opinion the v-joint will perform the same.

The bead will give marginally more protection but any corner hit hard will be damaged whether beaded or v cut. A v cut corner can be locally repaired whereas a beaded corner requires total replacement of the bead. The v cut corner can also be locally strengthened at the back with a 25 x 25 angle.

Yes. Subject to quantity we will manufacture the client’s exact requirements.

No and, indeed, a benefit of V Cut profiles is they are strong so less framework is required.

A tip – before lifting boards off the pallets, fix a 25 x 25 angle behind the joint such that you lift a complete preformed profile. If lifting the flat packed profile, always be careful to support the board both sides of the v joint. Alternatively use our Fold & Fix tape solution.

By the very fact the slotting removes part of the board, we have to assume it will affect the performance but at this stage we have not carried out any tests. Note, when the board is fixed, the slots often close up.

A curved wall can be built using timber or steel profiles as per the manufacturer’s instructions. For columns, we can supply MDF formers to the required diameter to support the flexi boards.

The slotting creates a faceted appearance once the board is fixed so we recommend a very light skim finish.

Certain stock profiles are supplied through our distributors but depending on volume non-stock profiles are available 7-10 days from order and clearing of details.

Flexiboards will form curved ceiling bulkheads provided the supporting framework is set out perpendicular to the slots in the backs of the boards and at appropriate centres to support the boards. The framing behind needs to be shaped to the required radius or profile as the boards are inherently flexible and will wrap to the framing.

We can v cut an edge to the board or cut it to size but Fermacell does not have a paper face so it would need to be a glued profile.
