The scheme of fastening the gypsum plasterboard to the frame.Here you can use notches, they will save on self-tapping screws (then you will need fewer of them). In order for the structure to be durable, it is necessary to make stops from the same profile. They can be made from the pieces that remain after cutting. These trims should be about 23 cm in size. It must be bent to 18 cm and fixed in this position on the wall, but with the short side. The long side must be pulled to the frame, then check the level and dimensions, and then secure with self-tapping screws. The number of spacers is set by the trial method, in other words, they need just enough so that the overall structure is not shaky. Otherwise, the profiles may wobble. Masters advise, when installing the profile on the wall, to use a sealing tape, which is glued to the inside. This tape performs the function of soundproofing and joining parts. The structure is attached starting from the ceiling, then attached to the floor and on the sides. The distance between the fasteners should be at least 50-55 cm.
