    PANELS FROM £125

    PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS PRODUCT

    STEP 1: INITIAL SURFACE PREPARATION

    The product is made to install over relatively smooth flat surfaces. Surface must be clean, dry and free of loose

    debris. All major holes or major damage that could interfere with installation must be repaired prior to installing

    wall panels. When installing over glossy plaster or paint rough up the surface with sandpaper to dull the surface

    and create a tooth for bonding.

    STEP 2:  3D WALL PANEL PREPARATION

    Tiles should acclimate for 24 - 48 hours in the environment and temperature they will be installed in.

    STEP 3: INSTALLING WALL PANELS

    You must determine if the installation will be wall-to-wall, a floating design (leave an even border all around

    to avoid cutting), a strip of tiles, etc. It is important to have this well thought out before beginning. If you are

    unsure, lay the tiles out on the floor or draw a grid on the wall to help you decide.

    PERMANENT INSTALLATION METHOD

    This method will require construction or mastic tile glue adhesives to be applied to back of panel and glued to

    the wall and also pin nailing the panels to the wall studs for added support. Use stud finder to locate the wall

    studs and draw a vertical line ceiling to floor. After planning your layout you are ready to install the panels.

    Apply a bead of construction adhesive along the perimeter back side of the panel and flat areas around the

    middle. Mount your first panel and use a level to ensure proper alignment. Use nail gun and shoot nails on flat

    area of panel in wall stud that have been marked, typically you should be able to have 4 nails per panel, if

    needed you can shoot into drywall but make certain no electrical wires are behind that area using stud finder with

    A/C locater. The nails help secure the panel in place and helps maintain panel flat to the wall while glue dries.

    Continue installing panels next to the other. Panels will have slight rough lip edges which helps provide a small

    gap when panels are butted together, this small gap will be filled using wood filler, some edges may need sanding

    to allign properly with other panels installed.

    On a wall-to-wall install, when at all possible, work across the wall moving toward the corner from left or right

    side to minimize cutting, try to have the cut tiles on the more inconspicuous side of wall. If you work from center

    out, keep in mind the tiles that fall at the top, bottom and both edges may need to be cut. Plan your design well

    to ensure desired results are what you expect. Remember, measure twice and cut once.


    CUTTING THE 3D WALL PANELS

    In most installations you will probably need to make some cuts to the panels. The panels can be cut using

    several tools. They can be cut using a table saw, jig saw, handheld electric or manual saw. After cutting

    use 180 grit or higher sandpaper to smoothen the cut edge.

    STEP 5: FILLING THE SEAMS AND SANDING

    Before starting this step make sure the adhesive used to secure the panels has cured. With most modular

    products it is inevitable that you will have seams. Therefore to help minimize the seams we recommend filling

    the seams using paintable wood filler that resists shrinking and cracking. Apply wood filler using either finger

    or putty knife, smooth out filler with finger or damp cloth and allow proper dry time as per manufacturer,

    reapply if needed. Once wood filler is dry and cured you can begin sanding lightly using 180 or finer grit

    sandpaper, brush away any sanding debris using slightly damp cloth.

    PRIMER/SEALER AND PAINTING

     IMPORTANT: USE OIL BASED PRIMER & SEALER ON MDF PANELS, LATEX PAINT CAN BE USED

     FOR TOP COAT.

    At this stage inspect the wall and see if any touch ups or last bit of sanding is needed. Apply a coat of

    primer/sealer using your choice of painting method. After the primer dries, we recommend a quick, light

    and gentle sanding over the entire wall. This will help ensure a smooth surface for painting by removing

    any foreign debris accrued on the panels during the installation process. Use a 350 grit or higher sandpaper.

    A second coat of primer may be needed, test your color on small area and if you feel another coat of primer

    is needed then do so or else you can apply your final coat of paint color. Any type of paint and finish will

    work as long as panels are primed. Keep in mind that when painting the panels its preferred to apply

    lighter coats as opposed to heavy coats of paint to avoid oversaturation to the wall panels. Follow the

    paint manufacturer's instructions on the paint chosen for number of coats, climatic, enviromental

    conditions and dry times, etc.
