Install Guide

Directions

– During install please always ensure appropriate PPE is worn at all times.  This includes eye protection, dust mask, gloves and hearing protection if using power tools.

– While all our panels are thoroughly inspect prior to delivery, we advise the installer checks there has been no damage to the panel during sheet preparation prior to install.

– Our panels can be fitted to most surfaces and can even be fitted over your existing tiles. These surfaces include plaster, steel or timber battens, brick, concrete or tiles. 

– Before fitting the panels check if the surface is even or not. If surface is uneven, battens should be fixed at 450mm intervals to the wall. Leave small gaps to aid ventilation somewhere on each row of battens. They can be screwed, nailed or glued to the wall. 

– The most popular method of fixing panels is glue.  If using this method please ensure that the wall or battens are free of dust, moisture or grease. For best results and to avoid voiding warranty use our polyurethane glue that can be included from Pronto Panels.

– If screwing the sheets please ensure the screws are countersunk.

– You can cut panels with a power saw, hand saw, plunge saw or a sharp blade.  For best results use a sharp saw blade on a circular saw.  

– Its recommended to have the face of the sheet down on a soft surface while cutting to avoid scratch or damage while preparing the sheet.

– It is recommended to dry fit panels after cutting.

– All panels must be properly sealed at all edges, whether they are being attached to profiles, shower enclosures or engineered tongue and grove.  

– Panels must also always be sealed on the entire perimeter using our recommended sealer, with or without extrusions. Inadequate sealing will invalidate your warranty. If the seal starts to deteriorate, it must be re-sealed immediately, and not allow moisture to penetrate joints or junctions.

– Be sure the wall and sheet is clean and dry prior instillation.

– It is important to ensure that when fitting the first panel you check that it is running straight and plumb using a spirit level.  Even if the corner junction to the room is not plumb it is essential to install all sheets plumb.

  1. If using the internal profiles, the first profile, which normally starts with an internal corner or end cap, should be fixed to the wall or end grounds with countersunk screws or glue.
  2. Adhesive or a bead of silicone sealant applied to the internal channel before inserting sheet.
  3. Measure, mark and cut the sheet to height and length.  Please ensure you make allowances for trims when cutting.  Cut with a power saw, hand saw or even a sharp knife.
  4. Dry fit the sheet prior to glue.
  5. Glue all perimeters of sheet and 80mm circles at 450mm increments over the remainder of the sheet.  If wall is batten, it is advised to glue the battens as opposed to the sheet. 
  6. If screwing the sheet please ensure the screw is countersunk.
  7. Push sheet firmly against the wall.  Please be sure the sheet is firm against the wall throughout the entire curing time of the adhesive.
  8. If you are using equal angle to complete the job, these should be installed with our recommended polyurethane glue and sealed with silicon sealer.
