Attaching Intersecting Walls to InSoFast Panels

Install all of the InSoFast panels around the perimeter walls before building interior partition walls. Butt intersecting wall stud up to the InSoFast panels. Apply a bead of construction adhesive to the backside of the stud where it will come in contact with the InSoFast panels. Note your stud is fastened at the bottom plate

Using Screws & Fasteners

Mechanical attachment may be the primary method for securing the InSoFast panels to the wall surface if the concrete conditions do not allow adhesive usage. Use Tapcon® screws or Perma-grip nails in the center recessed attachment point on each stud, for a total of three screws per panel for interior drywall applications. Adhered stone applications
