REQUIRED TOOLS AND MATERIALS
4’ level, Pencil, Construction Adhesive (i.e. Liquid Nails), Nail Gun or Regular Nails, Saw (Miter Saw, Jigsaw, Fine Tooth Hand Saw), Dust Mask
PRIOR TO INSTALLATION
- Allow 3D panels to acclimate by placing them in the area you are installing for 48-72 hours.
- WoodyWalls panels can be installed on variety of surfaces such as walls, backsplashes, kitchen cabinets, ceilings and headboards.
- Inspect panels thoroughly prior to installation. Avoid using any damaged boards to ensure proper adhesion and to prevent any future problems.
- Use caution while working around wall outlets and light switches.
- Keep your HVAC at 60-75ºF for a few days prior to installation as well as during and after installation.
- 3D panels can be installed around a code-approved fireplace as long as the surface you are applying panels to is not exposed to combustible materials.
- When installing panels in places with high humidity (i.e. bathrooms), prior to installation make sure the application surface is completely dry and clear of dust/debris to insure proper adhesion.
- DO NOT install as flooring
CARE AND CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
- WoodyWalls panels are made from real wood materials, the use of dry cloth should be the primary method of cleaning
- Wall Décor such as mirrors, pictures, TV’s and shelves can be mounted by drilling THROUGH the boards and using industry standard techniques for installation on the underlying substrate
- Clean the wall surface. Remove all debris, dust, grease, cover plates and protruding nails.
- *Optional Step*- we recommend painting the surface in the same shade as planks prior to installation.
- Use panels from different bundles to ensure even mix of colors.
- Dry-lay panels before permanently installing to create your desired pattern.
- Apply glue on the back of each panel. Use dry cloth to remove any excess of adhesive immediately after application.
- Start applying the first row of panels from the lowest point of the surface going upward.
- Press into place, secure panels with nails.
- Always use a dust mask to protect yourself from inhaling any debris from cutting wood panels.
- Use sanding block to smooth the cut edges if needed.
! WARNING: Drilling, sawing, sanding or machining wood products can expose you to wood dust, a substance known to the State of California to cause cancer. Avoid inhaling wood dust or use a dust mask or other safeguards for personal protection. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov/wood.
