Wall Preparation: The previous wall surface has been removed, and ¾” deep by 4” high mounting strips have been installed horizontally at 23-3/4” vertical centers. 1” deep furring strips may be used if acoustic backing is needed.
Begin by measuring 23-3/4” centers for the 2’x8’ (nominal) panels (actual size: 23-3/4”x95-1/2”)
Then draw level lines on the mounting strips at previously-marked 23-3/4” vertical centers as references for attaching the panels horizontally.
Measure the height of the first panel from the floor to the previously-drawn horizontal line.
Cut the first panel to the measurement and carefully position at the bottom corner.
Make sure the panel is flush against both mounting strips and slowly drive a screw into the top corner.
Slowly drive a screw in at maximum 24” spacing (for this wall – for high traffic or ceiling installs use 12” on center).
Continue slowly driving screws at recommended spacings.
It is recommended that screws be driven slowly to avoid potential panel mis-alignment or breakage.
Also, screws may need to be backed out at the halfway point to set the panel correctly.
Continue to drive screws at recommended spacings.
After the first panel has been attached, check again for level. This panel sets the alignment for all following panels.
For staggered panels, transfer the end marks to the next-higher mounting board.
Then measure half the panel length and place a mark.
Measure half the panel length, mark the end, and cut the panel.
Note that this panel has a notch cut for the corner wall mounting strip.
Make sure the panel is flush against the end wall and both mounting strips, then check for level.
Drive in the top corner screw.
Remember to back out the screw if needed to set the panel flush.
Make sure screws have a minimum ¾” edge spacing.
Continue placing mounting screws at recommended spacings, except in corners.
Paint-matched Screw head – Pre-paint the screw heads to match the panel color.
Continue to measure, cut, and carefully place panels.
Remember, panel edges and corners can be damaged, so work carefully.
Measure for both top and bottom panel dimensions – walls may be out-of-plumb.
Panels can be heavy, assistance may be needed for careful handling.
Check level often.
Assistance may be needed to hold panels until secured.
Again, backing out screws may be necessary.
Measure carefully and – starting out – work slowly…
The results will look great!
