DIY – For Wall Panels

  • In case you decide not to glue teh panels to the walls, you start by placing wooden battens approx. every 30cm. To install the panels vertically, place the battens horizontally and vice versa.
  • Continue by measuring the number of panels you will need for the wall and ceiling. If the last panel is to narrow, we advise to saw the first panel so that you have at least 4cm on either side.
  • Start by fixing the start and edge trim(No.3) around the surface you wantto decorate. Insert the first panel into the trim. Make sure the first panel is placed perfectly straight (using a spirit-level or a thread with weight) before stapling, nailinug or screwing the lip onto the batten (every 30cm). Leave about 5mm clearance between the panel and the edge trim. A fine tooth saw is recommended for cutting the panels to size.
  • Insert the second panel completely intop the groove before stapling (nailing or screwing) into the lip. Proceed the same way with the next panels. For the finish you can also use the internal corner profile (No. 1), the external corner (No. 2) and/or the center joint (No.4).

DIY – For Ceiling Panels

  • Clean the surface of ceiling.
  • Nail wooden or steel battens(20mm – 30mm thick) into the wall and ceiling, with all the corners firstly, then on the plane with the distance of 400mm away between every wooden batten.
  • Screw PVC profiles(cornices) on all the corners, then insert the panel into the corner profiles, then the folling panel into the first panel.
  • Screw PVC second panel’s notch side into the wooden or steel battens, then insert the third panel, then the fourth, and nail the fourth’s notch side, then fifth and sixth, then…
  • Attention for the distance and notch side panel: for the ways above is based on 250mm or 300mm wide panels, and wooden or steel battens between distance is 400mm, so every 2 panel, screw the second notch. Surely you could change the ways as per your situation presently, by way of changing the distance of the panels and the wooden or stell battens.

Cutting the panels: Panels can easily be cut or trimmed using a hand saw, portable circular saw, table saw, jig saw or sharp utility knife. We recommend using a fine-tooth saw. The finer the teeth, the neater the cut you will achieve.

What you have to remember:

Use the panel for indoor uses only. The background must be sound, dry and good condition. When using the panels in high pressure shower areas, use silicon sealant in the groove on the back of the lip for a water-tight seal.
Before fitting panels around sources of heat, for example radiators or fire places, make sure the temperature level doesn’t exceed allowed level of 188F(80C).
