Equally space the construction beams (40 x 40 mm) transversely to the concrete edge stones (the groove is at the bottom), ensuring that there is a protrusion of 50 mm on the end face (see detail 8). Position two beams at the beginning and two at the end (axial dimension: 160 mm). Place 10 mm rubber pads underneath the construction beam and compensate for any gradient differences with additional rubber pads. Screw the construction beams around the entire edge of the terrace and the beams that the retaining band is mounted on, to the concrete slab. When laying the terrace herringbone style, the construction beams need to be screwed to the concrete slabs that are positioned underneath the beginning and end of the board.
If the terrace should be more than 3 m wide, the ends of the construction beam are always to be positioned offset and connected using the connecting clamp. The connecting clamp makes it possible to create terraces that are larger than 12 x 12 m without the requirement for structural expansion joints.
Cut the connecting clamp to 250 mm so that the beam joints are joined to each other and then screw tightly on one side (clearance of the joints: 10 mm).
Saw the connecting clamp to a width of 20 mm and a depth of 10 mm at the outer construction beam so that the rhombus profile can be used as a closing strip in the area of the screwed connection. The butt joint of the rhombus profile accommodate the butt joints of the subconstruction.
Mount an additional piece of construction beam piece (length 320 mm) for butt joints of the rhombus profiles in the direction of the boards. The butt joint of the rhombus profiles will accommodate the butt joint of the boards with the boards laid in herringbone style. Screws are placed in the double mount construction beams.
Fix the retaining band to a construction beam that is located in the centre underneath the board. When using the Distanz Fix when laying herringbone style, the retaining band has to be fixed to each of the construction beams.
Chamfer the cut edges of the boards.
Place an edge clip at the beginning of the face of the construction beam so that it is flush with the beam, pre-drill to a depth of 3 mm and loosely fix in place using a screw (do not tighten yet).
Push the first board onto the positioned edge clip. Use the clip for the following boards, pre-drill to a depth of 3 mm and loosely fix it to the construction beam using the enclosed screws. Now push the next board against it until the clip is positioned against the groove. Tighten the clip applying the average torque after approx. 5 rows of boards have been laid. Repeat this until the last board but one has been layed.
After laying the last board but one, determine the width that is required for the last board and saw the construction beam to the required length so that it is flush. The construction beam has to protrude over the edge of the design beam by 10 mm so that the edge clip can be positioned as a final mounting.
Position the final board and fix the edge clip in place. Pre-drill a hole for the screw and screw in place applying an average torque.
Cut the boards to length at a right-angle at the face edge, ensuring that there is a protrusion on 15 mm. Maximum board protrusion: 50 mm. Chamfer the cut edges.
Leave a minimum clearance of 15 mm between the rhombus profile and the surface of the ground.
Screw the rhombus profiles maximum 60 mm from the ends and maximum 400 mm from each other and pre-drill true to the principles. When laying parallel to the boards, screw on using M8 x 40 mm screws so that they are flush with the end edge of the construction beam. Act in accordance with Detail 8 as regards butt joints.
When mounting at the face towards the boards, screw on using M8 x 80 mm fastening screws and use the corresponding nut as a spacer and in order to fix in place.
