Due to manufacturing methods
used to produce Texture-Wall, most panels will
have a slight "bow" or "warping" in them. This is
considered normal and can easily be removed using the installation methods
below. If a higher degree of flatness is required, Baltic Birch plywood can
be bonded to back of panels prior to manufacture. This reduces but will not
completely eliminate warping. The maximum size of Baltic Birch is 4'X8'.
Please contact entaLeis for
recommendations regarding your specific installation.
May only be used if there is sufficient material thickness to allow screw
attachment of the clips to the Texture-Wall
panel. Ideally, the panels should be specified thick enough or with a thick
enough backer to accomodate the screws that are to be used. Panels of
minimum thickness can be used for Z-Clip installation, but the installer must
first glue wood screw cleats to the back of the panel. Z-Clips should run
the full panel width to insure adequate support across the panel.
MASTIC a high quality construction mastic such as "Liquid
Nails" can be applied to the back of the panels and then pressed onto a
structurally sound surface (follow construction mastic manufacturer's
application instructions). Panels must be mechanically held in place until
mastic is completely set.
SCREW ATTACHMENT Texture-Wall may be attached to a supporting
structure by screwing directly into the panel back. As is the case with
Z-Clip installation, the panels should be specifies thick enough or with a
thick enough backer to accommodate the screws that are to be used.
