Bow 2ft. x 2ft. Seamless Glue-up Wall Panel (Package of 12 Tiles), Plain White
EPS 3D Wall Panels - Installation Instructions
You will need the following to install the panels correctly:
- A wallpaper cutter
- A measure tape
- A level
- A pencil
- A primer
- An adhesive for polystyrene foam
- An acrylic filler (optional)
- Acrylic or latex paint (optional)
- 1 mm (spax) decking spacers (optional)
Remove the panels from the packaging and wait for at least 4 (four) hours to allow the product to adapt to ambient temperature. Before installing the panels, place them on a flat surface to arrange them in a pattern and to inspect them for mechanical damage that may have been caused during transport. Once you install the panels on a wall or ceiling, you will not be entitled to make any warranty claims.
Step 1. Prepare the surface
The panels should be installed on a clean and dry surface free form loose dirt. Before installation, any holes in the surface (wall or ceiling) should be filled with a patching compound. If the surface is covered with wood, plastic or varnish, sand the surface matt with fine grit sandpaper.
Now prime the surface using a commercial primer.
Step 2. Arrange the panels
Before installing the panels, plan how to arrange them on the surface, paying attention to the direction of the pattern.
A rough drawing of the arrangement is recommended. Use a level and a pencil to mark the contours of the panels on the surface.
Step 3. Cutting
To cut the panels, use a wallpaper cutter. Measure the right length and cut it off with a precise movement.
Step 4. Install the panels on the wall
Glue the panels directly onto the wall using a multi-purpose adhesive for polystyrene foam. Apply the adhesive evenly onto the surface, either in spots or all along the edge of the panel, about 2 ‐ 3 cm from the edge (the reverse side of the panel), and on the contact edges of the panel. Now press the panel gently onto the surface. Use a damp cloth to remove any excess amount of the adhesive. When placing the panels onto the wall, make sure that all the edges adhere properly to the surface. If you discover any cracks in the joints on the panels, use an acrylic filler. As an option, you can install the panels using (spax) decking spacers, not thicker than 3 mm.
Apply an acrylic filler in all cracks. Apply an acrylic filler in all cracks and use a plastic putty knife to remove any excess amount of the filler material to give the surface a uniform decorative look.
Step 5. Painting
Before painting the panels, it is best to wait for at least 24 hours to allow the adhesive acrylic filler material to dry. using commercial acrylic or latex paints for indoor use, paint the panels twice.
- Do not press the panels onto the wall too hard, as this may damage them.
- Use only proven, high quality paints ‐ for good coverage.
- Use an adhesive for polystyrene foam. Consider buying it from us, as we can help you choose the right adhesive for the products.
- Remember to cut the panels only with a sharp wallpaper cutter.
- After painting, use a feather duster or vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment to clean the panels.
Do not install the panels in busy areas. Choose surfaces away from an open flame and high temperatures (e.g. a fireplace, a gas cooker etc)
Bow Seamless Glue-up Wall Panel are as they are advertised to be. They are made of quality material. Thick and sturdy. The design was also what I was expecting. I would recommend for your ceiling needs.
I used these tiles for the ceiling in my basement. They are lightweight which makes them easy to handle and work with. They are very easy to install and paint without any problems. They also have some sound dampening which helps with noises from the floor upstairs.
These ceiling and wall tiles are the greatest thing ever invented. There are so many designs, that it would be easy to find something for your home. Even though this is a wall tile, I think it can be also used as a ceiling tile. I have a spare room that I've been wanting to make into a kind of sitting room for myself. I recently painted the walls and added a chair and bed. I decided that this was the room I was going to use these tiles and do one accent wall.
I am over 50, and anyone can install these tiles. They are very light and easy to hold. I put these in by myself. They come with clear instructions for installing and I also had the adhesive for installing. The hardest part was determining the center of the wall, since I've never even thought of doing this myself before. Once that was accomplished, I started putting the tile up.
All it takes is a spot of adhesive in various places on the tile. I think I had about 12 spots, quarter size, on each tile, more or less. I probably didn't need that much. There are arrows on the back of the tile, so just make sure you have all the arrows pointing the same direction, and the tile will line up perfectly with the previous piece. When I came to an outlet, or something that needed cut out, I just marked it lightly with a pencil and used a utility knife to cut out. Since it's just styrofoam, it was the easiest thing I've cut, that had to do with remodeling. In no time at all, I had it all done. The sheets are 2 foot by 2 foot, so you can make a lot of progress in a short time. I used the adhesive in any cracks to make it smooth, and it cleans up with water, so I just used a wet cloth to wipe off the excess. I'm not sure if I will paint it yet, but it is paintable. I'm rather enjoying the brightness of the room with the white panels. I even had a couple pieces left from cutting and I used these in a closet ceiling and down on the wall to make it brighter inside the closet.
Even though this is a styrofoam product, it is smooth and somewhat sturdy. It will dent easily, so I won't have any kids in this room, because, you know, kids can be quite curious and destructive. The panels actually have made the room much quieter, since it's near a road, and I'm thinking better insulated.
I have been looking at the website for other designs, because I'm thinking about putting new ceiling in my dining room. Don't hesitate on getting these ceiling or wall tiles. They are quality material, easy to install and look fantastic when you are done. The best thing is that you can install yourself, without the need of hiring someone to do it.
Pros: Lightweight, various designs to pick from, easy to install, little to no mess
Cons: can be easily damaged, but you just have to be careful when installing.
