Q - Can a general contractor install this product?
Yes ,WOOD-SKIN is not a complex system in terms of assembly (carpenters normally possess all the necessary skills to assemble WOOD-SKIN easily). Every project is always supported with WOOD-SKIN installation instruction and 3D support tools (3D model, AR tools). In addition to that, based on location, budget, project complexity, WOOD-SKIN can provide a supervision service (1 or 2 persons of the WOOD-SKIN® installation team will be on site to assist and support the GC/local manpower during installation).
Q - Would it be possible to have supervision during installation?
Yes, depending on the project size and complexity it can be necessary to have 1-2 members of our team on hand to oversee the installation process. This will be assessed and discussed with the client as any project progresses.
Q - Do you provide hardware for installation?
Yes, all hardware necessary to install is provided in the crates as standard. The client needs only the basic tools necessary for fixing and joining the hardware/ sheets together, and to the wall - depending on the product and project.
Q - How do I install WOOD-SKIN products?
WOOD-SKIN Products are all shipped with a detailed installation manual, the installation is broken down into a step by step process which is easy to follow. Our Technical manual provides in depth information on the design, manufacture and installation of the Mesh Sheets and Tailor Made surfaces, including examples of previous projects, their complexities, and our responses to those complexities. Naturally, the more complex the project, the more steps that are involved in installation, WOOD-SKIN assess the complexity of each project and sometimes deem it necessary to provide support for installation. Fold Panels - can be installed by client alone, detailed instruction manuals are provided as standard as part of every job we do. Due to the Fold Panels being the most standardised product we offer, installation is usually simple. Mesh Sheets - Can be a little more labour intensive in their installation, due to the scale and complexity of the projects in which the product is typically used. Mesh Sheets are provided with a full installation instruction manual as standard. WOOD-SKIN will assess for the necessity of support in installation. Tailor Made - Tailor made is, as the name suggests, a custom WOOD-SKIN product designed specifically for the environment in which it is being placed. Therefore, it often requires a tailored installation process. WOOD-SKIN provides an instruction manual as standard, depending on the complexity of the project we may also need to provide supervision on the installation.
