Installation Guide ...

Tools Needed:

  • Screwdriver or Drill
  • Level
  • Measuring Tape
  • Pencil
  • Quality Adhesive (if not using screws)
  • Multi-tool or Jigsaw (for cutting around switches or sockets)
  • Panel Placement: Using a pencil and a level, mark the desired placement of the panels on the wall. Ensure they are evenly spaced and aligned. Remember, the felt panel lip should be on the correct side to be covered by the wooden slat of the next panel.

Screw Installation:

  • a. If screwing directly into plasterboard, wood, or lime plaster, there's no need for pre-drilled holes.
  • b. Align the panels with your markings and use the provided screws to secure them in place. Ensure not to over-tighten.
  • Check Alignment: Use the level to ensure the panels are straight and evenly placed. Adjust if needed.

Cutting Around Switches or Sockets:

  • a. Identify the location of switches or sockets on the wall.
  • b. Using a multi-tool or jigsaw, carefully cut out the necessary area on the panels to accommodate these fixtures.

Adhesive Application (Optional):

  • a. If not using screws, apply a quality adhesive evenly on the back of the panel.
  • b. Press the panel firmly against the wall, holding it in place for a few seconds to allow the adhesive to bond.
  • Check Alignment (Again): Use a level to ensure the panels are straight and aligned, especially after making any cuts. Make adjustments if necessary.

General Tips:

  • Allow adhesive to set for the recommended time before putting any additional stress on the panels.
  • For precise spacing, use a measuring tape to ensure equal distances between panels.
  • We offer trimming pieces for framing around cut-outs for switches or sockets.
