Position the panel on the leveling angle and press the panel to the
wall to engage the hook and loop fasteners.
NOTES: When measuring for field cut-outs, be sure to reverse the
dimensions as cuts will be made from back of panel.
Do not install by applying the hook fastener to the factory applied
loop fastener on the back of the panel, and press face of panel to
apply fastening system to the wall. This can cause damage to the
panel face and will result in an improper installation.
Dirt and body oils will greatly reduce the effectiveness of the
fastener adhesive. Extra handling care should be taken when
removing the release paper and installing the panel. Do not
use excessive amounts of hook fasteners on the wall surfaces, as it
will create a bond strength that may cause damage when panel removal
is attempted. 1 square inch of hook and loop fastener will support
approximately 4 pounds weight of in most applications.
When panel removal is necessary, the hook-to-loop fastener bond
should be broken by peeling the panel from the wall. Removal by
pulling from the panel face directly from the wall causes undue
force on the fastener joint and will result in damage to the
fastener and panel. The use of a flal blade tool will assisl in the
breaking of the fastener bond. Care should be taken to not break the
bond between the hook fastener and the wall.
Do not attempt to reinstall the hook or loop portions of the
fastening system after the adhesive has been used. Replace
with a new piece as necessary.
The use of the hook and loop fastening system will create a gap of
approximately 1/8 inch between the panel back and the mounting
surface face. This is important for field measurement and edge
treatment in a reveal type installation.
This method allows "flush" installation between panels top and any
horizontal intersecting surface. No clearance is necessary
