What is runner?
Runner is one of the components that is used for the foundation of dry walls and steel system. Runner or u profile is installed horizontally under dry walls like sandwich panel. The runner is also used for underlaying false ceilings. In other words, the runner is an accessory for running panels that are fixed inside each other in a sliding manner.
Runners are produced in different dimensions that depend on the thickness of the sandwich panels used. Runners have U-shaped sections and are specially designed and produced for sandwich panels. But maybe in the meantime you have heard the name of stud and want to know what is the difference between stud and runner; So stay with us as we explain the difference between a runner and a stud.
What is the difference between stud and runner
Studs are a type of accessory for the implementation of wall panels, which are considered a type of metal sheet. These materials are generally made of galvanized material and are designed and produced with different dimensions of wings and wings depending on the size and openings used. The method of their connection is screwing and welding, and they are used for vertical substructure, which in combination with runners can create a suitable frame for sandwich panel installation.
Runners are usually used for the frame of wall sandwich panel and are uniquely designed and made, but the stud is usually designed with C-shaped sections and plays the role of wall post. But the studs are usually installed vertically and standing outside the frame of the executed wall.
What size and thickness is the runner produced
Runners are produced from 4 to 20 cm in size, and the thickness of the used sheets varies from 0.7 mm to 2 mm. 3 to 5 cm high panel retaining edges are commonly available in the market.
At what intervals are the runners installed
Runners are installed on the floor of sandwich panels according to the length of the wall, and their length and amount of use is proportional to the length of the wall. If we want to run them crosswise and non-continuously, the distance between the extension of the panels should not be more than a quarter of the width of the sandwich panels.
In addition to the runner Flushing sheet is also one of the types of equipment that is used not only for installing ceiling sandwich panels but also for installing wall sandwich panels.
There are different types of flushing sheet, for example, gutter flushing, flushing next to and under the window, and June wall flushing are among the flushings that are used to install wall sandwich panels.
How to install the runner
Runners are placed on the floor after marking the line of the sandwich panel walls. In this way, first one side of the chalk lines of the walls are marked on the ground; Then, the runners are fixed in the ground with roll bolts or plate rolls on the surface leveled with the wall. If the appropriate supports are already installed on the ground, the runners are welded to the plate, and then the joint of the runners is filled by welding. After that, the panels are slidably bolted into the runners.
Runners are usually used in the implementation of internal partitions, external walls, clean rooms and cold storages, prefabricated buildings also require the use of runners if they are implemented on the floor.
Where to get a runner
As we said, the runner is one of the essentials used for sandwich panel installation, so to get it, be sure to contact a sandwich panel sales technical engineering office. The experts of Asia Panel are ready to answer your questions, dear ones, and you can contact the experts of Asia Panel to inquire about the price of all kinds of sandwich panels and their equipment and supplies.
