How to fix our wall panels?
We’ve got you covered
Follow a few steps to achieve amazing, professional looking effect. It usually takes 20-30 minutes per panel to finish your project. Paintable panels take longer but it’s worth it.
- Wall panels
- Adhesive suitable for wall panels (We recommend Soudal FixAll 300kg)
- Spirit level or laser
- Measuring tape
- Saw, multitool, jigsaw or other fine-cutting tools
- Sandpaper or scotch pad (if needed)
- Caulk gun
- Router (optional if you want to cut off the lip from the last panel)
Prepare the wall surface by cleaning it thoroughly and ensuring it’s dry and free of any dust, grease, or debris. If the surface is uneven or has holes, fill them with wood filler and sand the surface to create a smooth, even surface.
Measure the area where the panels will be installed and calculate the number of panels needed. Cut the panels to size using a saw or other cutting tool, if needed. Socket holes and other wall elements can be cut with drill and jigsaw or multitool. Make sure to wear protective equipment such as gloves and eye protection while cutting.
We recommend to use Soudal FixAll 400kg adhesive. Apply the adhesive to the back of the panel using a caulk gun. It usually takes about half a tube per panel. We recommend laying 2 lines about 1-2″ from the edge of the panel and a wavy pattern between them. See photo.
Fixing the panels
Place the panel on the wall, starting at the bottom and working your way up. Use a spirit level to ensure that the panel is straight and even. Adjust the panel as needed before the adhesive dries. Press firmly to make sure the glue is in good contact with both the wall and the panel.
More panels? No problem.
Repeat previous steps for each panel.
Allow the adhesive to dry for a few hours before touching or painting the panels.
You can use brush, roller or sprayer to paint the panels. Our paintable wall panels don’t require priming in most cases. For detailed directions follow the paint or wall emulsion manufacturer’s instruction.
