  • It is recommended to make the holes through which the air will flow in. This is in order to avoid condensation on the pipes.
  • Schedule frame assembly can be virtually any type of profiles, but the finished construction should be sufficiently strong and reliable.

Since the box for the bathroom plasterboard will be continuously exposed to moisture and temperature changes, the choice of materials must be approached very carefully.
