how to assemble the ke module
A dimensioned plan layout will be included in the KE architectural element. If you have any further questions feel free to contact our support team.
The assembly of these parts requires someone to carefully mark the designed location on the floor and mirror that same location on the ceiling.
The conditions may vary depending upon whether KE is to be used in new construction or the renovation of an existing space.
These marked locations will guide the installation of metal tracks and metal liner pans, followed by vertical C-shaped metal studs to complete the wall framing step.
Horizontal tracks are rotated and screw-fastened to become supports for metal liner trays, HVAC metal supply duct, and fire-rate plywood platform inserts at the HVAC and hot water heater compartments.
Once the horizontal tracks, along with their trays, duct, and platform inserts are in place, the KE architectural element is ready to accept utilities and equipment by other trades people.
