Descriptions of application of the following materials and constructions are provided: concrete, lightweight concrete, masonry, gypsum board, calcium silicate board, chipboard, plywood, cladding with tiles and PVC, painting, joints etc. Besides, different ways of treating existing floor and wall constructions are described.
The specifications and solutions shown are recognized as complying with the requirements stipulated in the Danish building codes.
