- attach to the base wall rack profiles;
- guide profiles secure the rackmount profiles with screws (punching method may be used) in increments of no more 60 cm;
- in the resulting frame inside mount inserts, make the necessary wiring and other wiring;
- in cases, when the partition height is greater than the length of the gypsum boards, you need to install additional profiles in Metakhim joints sheets;

- if necessary, inside the frame lay the insulating material;
- install drywall sheets and on the other hand is already on the diagram.
