STAMPED METAL




For over fifty years Wunderlich Ceilings have been renowned for their beauty, safety and permanence. No other ceiling medium affords these three characteristics to such a marked degree, for Wunderlich Ceilings are modern in design, are fire resisting, vermin proof and will not crack or fall; once installed they give a lifetime of service without further attention.

They are ideal alike for ceilings to homes and residential flats as well as to offices, stores and awnings.

As awning ceilings or treatments to areas that are semi-exposed to the weather, the use of Wunderlich Ceilings is virtually the standard practice.

They enhance the appearance of display windows. All patterns that are marked with an asterisk, viz., No. 1808*, are suitable for awning ceilings.

These patterns are available in Galvanised Steel, and the use of this metal is recommended for the purpose.

Wunderlich Metal Ceilings are easily erected—even over old and dilapidated ceilings (see Page 5). For the assistance of workmen when fixing, a working drawing showing the set out of battens and the ceiling sheets, etc., is furnished with each order. To enable this drawing to be correctly prepared, clients are requested to furnish the following information with their order:


I. The exact sizes of the areas to be ceiled, fireplaces, breaks, etc. 2. The direction of the ceiling joists in relation to the area.

3. Whether Steel or Galvanised Steel Materials are required.


Adherence to the range of patterns illustrated in this Catalogue will result in prompt delivery of requirements, as ample stocks are available at current list prices. Obsolete patterns that are shown in previous Wunderlich Ceiling Catalogues are not available from stock, but can, in many cases, still be supplied, subject, however, to an initial extra charge of from £2 to £.3 to cover the cost of special manufacture.




To ensure immediate delivery at bedrock prices, clients are requested to restrict their selection to the designs illustrated in this booklet. Wunderlich Limited retain at each of their Branches a staff of workmen who are skilled in the proper application of Metal Ceilings. Take advantage of this service by having your requirements fixed quickly and efficiently by Wunderlich workmen.

HOW TO FIX WUNDERLICH CEILINGS


SECTIONS OF CEILING SHOWING METHODS OF FIXING




SECTION No. I. Diaper Ceiling, Scotia finish.


Having fixed battens, first fix sheetings to the ceiling battens and then fix the scotia. Wood brackets are used at the joints of the scotia. On account of the depth of this scotia being less than 2in., no batten is necessary on the wall.




TM



SECTION No. 2.

Cornice with a flange. Sheeting or border is fixed over this flange.



SECTION No. 3.

Cornice, Sheet Panelling, with Border and Moulding in one piece.


NOTE.—Many of our Cornices and Mouldings are provided with a bead on the edge to go over fillings or border pattern, and so avoid close trimming of the sheet.



The use of combined border and moulding enables the pattern in the ceiling to work out with a full ornament. The border can be cut to make up irregularities in the size of the room.


MITRE

LEAVES


TOOLS

Tools required are: Hammer, bradawl, punch, pair of snips, saw and tucking chisel.

GENERAL DIRECTIONS

Fix I Jin. x I in. battens from the centre of room at I2in. centres across the joists; the batten nearest the wall must be set out a distance from the wall to suit the projection of the cornice or scotia. Trimmer battens are cut in and skew nailed to take the ends of sheets and the cornice. Taking the batten nailed to lowest joist as the level, wedges are driven between the battens and the other joists, where necessary, to adjust any difference in level.

It is essential that a batten is fixed under all joints of sheeting and a wood bracket at the joints of cornices.

When using 6in. or 8in. patterns, the centreing of the pattern is not so important. With larger patterns, however, a border such as No. 1406 or No. 1680 is employed to avoid waste and also cutting into the design. We do not recommend borders over I2in., although it is sometimes necessary to exceed this width.

CORNICES

Cornices with a bead at the top member are fixed over the sheeting or border—if the latter is used—see Section No. I. Cornices with a flange in lieu of a bead are fixed first and then the sheeting or border is cut up to the cornice.

Border No. 1406 finishes with a bead against the top member of the cornice—see Section No. 2.

Small Cornices and Scotias with a depth of less than 2in. do not require a batten on the wall and are usually clean mitred at the angles.

Larger Cornices require a batten I Jin. x Jin., which is nailed to plugs in the wall to take the bottom member of the Cornice —see Section No. 2 and No. 3.

A metal Cornice can be dressed or tucked down on the sheeting, in contrast to a wood cornice, which rides on the embossed portion of the pattern, and, therefore, does not make a good finish.

New buildings having plaster walls should have a bevelled ground fixed to which the I Jin. x Jin. batten is secured for the bottom of the Cornice.

The walls must be floated before the metal material is fixed. For old brick buildings, plugs should be inserted and battens fixed thereto.

For mitreing, allow one length of the Cornice to butt on to the wall scribing the opposite length to it, covering the joint with a mitre leaf, using a little putty on the edge of the leaf before pressing it into the angle; then nail to battens and brackets. Mitre Leaves are made for Internal, Internal Octagonal, External and External Octagonal Mitres.

Cover battens are not required with Metal Ceilings, as each sheet has a bead which overlaps the adjoining sheet. Tack the sheets temporarily in position until all beads are correctly lined up. Use a punch for completing the nailing and then tuck the edge of the beads with an old chisel or plane blade so that they lie close and even.

WORKING PLANS

Working plans for the guidance of clients are supplied with design orders, and these show full size sections of Cornices and Mouldings, also the setting out of steel material and battens.

BATTENS

There are several local semi-hardwood or pine timbers available for battens, and the State Forestry Commission will gladly give information on the subject. These local timbers are preferable to imported timbers, as the latter are stored in salt water prior to cutting up and have proved to be unstaisfactory for metal ceiling fixing owing to the corrosive action of their salt content.

HOW TO FIX DADOS

Dado and Wall Lining Materials are attached to battens fixed to plugs in the wall or nailed to wood studs, but it is advisable that the lower three feet of the Metal Sheeting be attached to wood lining boards or batten at 6in. centres. If the Ceilings are also to be of metal, they should be fixed first.

Obtain the height of dado and strike a perfectly horizontal line for the top of dado panels, allowing for height of wood skirting.

Now fix the battens for Metal Sheetings in a similar manner as for Ceilings, bearing in mind that it is essential to get an equal

AND WALL LININGS

amount of the pattern on each side of the room. A batten should be placed under each joint and one under the centre of the sheet. If sheet is fixed vertically, cut in battens at 24in. centres.

When all battens are in position, fix Dado Moulding and Angle Strips. (See Nos. 1368, 1369.)

Dado Panels and Metal Sheeting should now be fixed. Place the lower bead of the wall sheet along the flange on the Dado Moulding and cut the pattern up to the bottom flange of the Cornice.

HOW TO PAINT WUNDERLICH CEILINGS

STEEL MATERIAL

Paint manufacturers have put on the market ready-mixed oil paints with a white lead and zinc white base suitable for painting Metal Ceilings. For the second coat add turpentine to give an eggshell or matt finish, which is recommended (except for awning and other outside ceilings, where a glossy finish—as explained below—is advisable). Should a third coat be desired to make a better finish, add mineral turps as with No. 2 coat. DO NOT USE DISTEMPER OR WATER PAINTS, as there is no absorption with metal, and it will peel off the film of oil paint with which the steel sheets are primed on both sides before leaving our factory.

The directions for mixing paint are as follows:

COAT No. I.—This should consist of pure white lead brought to the required consistency with a mixture consisting of three parts of raw oil and one part of turps. A small quantity of goldsize should be added, for drying purposes.

COAT No. 2.—Similar to Coat No. I except that an equal quantity of zinc white may be added to the base. To obtain a matt finish, use, say, half turps and half oil, in addition to the colours or tints required.

COAT No. 3.—Should a third coat be used, it would be similar to Coat No. 2.

Where necessary for stopping joints, mitre leaves, bosses, etc., the best oil putty should be used.

If the final finish is to be white it will be found that the intensity of white can be maintained longer by the addition of a small quantity of ultramarine blue in the various coats of paint. A light cream or old ivory finish, however, is more pleasing and gives a softer reflection of light.

AWNING CEILINGS

A gloss finish is recommended and can be obtained by adding a small quantity of varnish as required.

ALUMINIUM FINISH

After treatment of the Galvanised Steel or Zinc material apply two coats of a recognised brand of aluminium paint.

GALVANISED OR ZINC MATERIAL

Before painting or spraying galvanised iron or zinc surfaces, it is essential that the greasy microscopic film of palmitate of zinc, left on the sheets during manufacture, is removed.

Removal can be effected by:

(1)    Allowing the metal to weather for a considerable period.

(2)    Treating the surface of the metal with the following mixture:

Chloride of Copper    ..    I lb.    Hydrochloric Acid    ..    I lb.

Nitrate of Copper    ..    I lb.    Ammonium Chloride    ..    lib.

Water............8 lb.

Apply with a brush and leave on for several hours, then wash down with clear water to remove excess chemicals and allow the surface to thoroughly dry.

Note.—As this etching mixture is somewhat corrosive, care must be taken when applying that it does not come in contact with the hands. It is essential also that every trace be removed from the sheets before painting.
