PVC Panel Advice

Installation on a wooden framing

PVC Panels are easy to install. Provided the wall surface is perfectly flat, you may glue the panels to the wall. If not you can either staple, nail or screw the boards on wooden battens. In rooms with a high humidity treated wood and stainless fixation should be used. Extra isolation can be installed between the battens.

1/ In case you decide not to glue the panels to the wall, you start by placing the wooden battens approx. every 30 cm. To install the panels vertically, place the battens horizontal and vice versa.

2/ Continue by measuring the number of panels you will need for the wall or ceiling. If the last panel is to narrow, we advise to saw the first panel so that you have at least 4 cm on either side.

3/ Start by fixing the start and edge trim (n° 9) around the surface you want to decorate. Insert the first panel into the trim. Make sure the first panel is placed perfectly straight (using a spirit-level or a thread with weight) before stapling, nailing or screwing the lip onto the batten (every 30 cm). Leave about 5mm clearance between the panel and the edge trim. A fine-tooth saw is recommended for cutting panels to size.

4/ Insert the second panel completely into the groove before stapling (nailing or screwing) into the lip. Proceed in the same way with the next panels. For the finish you can also use the internal corner (profile n° 4V), the external corner (profile n° 17V) and/or the centre joint (profile n° 10)
