STACKING PANELSTo allow temperature and humidity to equalize, stack panels at least three high in the work area. Do not stack directly on the concrete floor.SUGGESTED TOOLS24″ level; tape measure; pencil; chalk line; circular saw; cordless or corded drill with screwdriver attachment.SUPPLIES1½” to 2″ drywall screws or equivalent; panel adhesive; (optional) roundhead screws for metal inserts. (Ensure that screw heads fit easily into grooves.)
METAL STUDSWood screws do not hold well in metal studs. Use wooden blocking whenever necessary.BLOCK OR CONCRETE WALLSFirst, mount vertical or horizontal furring strips on the wall. Installing Slatwall directly on concrete or block walls is not recommended.ALIGNMENTInstallation label on the back of panel displays best “factory edge.” (See page 2) When stacking Slatwall higher than 4′, ensure that edges line up for proper panel alignment.
1. Install over studs, plaster, furring strips or drywall. Panel adhesive recommended.2. Use drywall screws of proper length.3. Install a screw in every other groove on each stud.4. Drive screws into grooves. Be careful not to damage the edges of grooves.
STARTING OFFSnap chalk line at the desired height on the wall. Mark location of studs on floor and ceiling (for mounting panels later). To ensure clean installation on projects requiring more than one panel, begin with a narrow panel first and finish with a full panel.FIRST PANELFollowing the manufacturer’s directions, spread adhesive vertically on the back of the panel (half-tube of adhesive per panel). Raise the first panel to the chalk line and install a screw through the top of the groove into a stud near one of the upper corners.REMAINING PANELSRepeat the process on the bottom row of panels, ensuring that grooves and factory edges line up from panel to panel. On installations without drywall (such as garages), make sure the end of each panel is centered in the middle of the stud.CUTTING PANELSWhen using a circular saw, use a straight edge guide for the saw to follow. Never cut “freehand”. Always cut from the front (finished side) of the panel.CUTTING PANELS WITH ALUMINUM INSERTSIt is not necessary to remove aluminum inserts from grooves when cutting panels.CLEAN UPRemove any adhesive or marking on the face of panels with a solvent such as lacquer thinner. Clean panels with a mild household cleaner and dry with a soft cloth.
