Preparing the wall or ceiling
Make sure the surfaces are clean and dry, without nails and screws.
Measuring the height and width
Using the measuring tape to measure.
Using “stud finder” and pencil to find a studs and
mark out where the screws will go through.
Cutting the panels with a circular saw and a knife to the length and width you need. The size of our panels are: 2400 mm by 600 mm, which is 8ft. length by 2ft. wide.
Then using an electric screwdriver mounting panels to the wall or ceiling.
Use black screws (1 1/4 inch) to screw through the black felt into the wall.
For installation on the wall, we recommend 15 screws of 3 screws per row each panel.
For ceiling, we strongly recommend strengthening the panel by screwing with screws or nailing with a stapler, making at least 3 rows, totally 45 screws, as indicated on the picture.
Mounting panels on the wall with glue
Firstly, clean the wall surface and make sure it without nails and screws, then measure the wall and panel, and then add structural adhesive to the backing felt of the panel.
Mounting panels on the wall with screws
Firstly, make sure the wall surface is clean and dry,
then measure the size of the panel you need, and then mark where the screws will go through. Lastly, screws the panel on the wall directly.
Mounting panels on a ceiling
To place panels on a ceiling, the instructions are
the same as on a wall.
For ceiling, we strongly recommend strengthening the panel by screwing with screws or nailing with a stapler, making at least 3 rows, totally 45 screws.
Considering to the material of wall, it would be
difficult to screw the panel directly on the wall if the wall is concrete or brick. It need to add an additional layer like racks for solidity.
For safety, we do not recommend installing the
panels on the ceiling with glue. The uneven glue or
poor quality of glue will cause the panel to warp.
The above installation methods are for reference
only, please refer to the actual operation, our company reserves the right of final explanation.
If you have any questions about the installation.
