Flames 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
These are brilliant and a classy way to dress up a room on a budget. They do need to be painted, or if using as-is need to be placed high enough that you can't see up close, because then it can be identified as styrofoam. This flame pattern is beautiful and will serve as an accent to our wall. Hit with a gentle coat of spray paint and hang it up and it becomes art!
These panels are the coolest twist in our remodeling adventure! They are light weight, which makes it easy to install. We used them as ceiling tiles for our hallway. As long as you have a flat surface, they are easily put in place using glue. We painted them beforehand, a medium grey, and the light from our fixture brings the flames to life. Theres a slight soundproofing to these tiles as well, there's slightly less echo than before. These tiles are perfect to put a little bit of snazzy to a blank wall.
The Flames seamless glue up wall panels are great! The are very easy to install and they look awesome once up on the wall. The whole room was transformed and looks completely different. Great product I highly recommend these tiles.
Each tile is incredibly light as they are made of styrofoam and there's no way of knowing that just by looking at them. The appearance of a flamed out ceiling in our bathroom was quite appealing to me so I was extremely excited to get these tiles mounted!
This kit includes tiles, adhesive and instructions which make the process very simple.
My install of these tiles were a breeze as I do not have any lighting fixtures in the ceiling in my bathroom. Rather, the lighting is on the side wall. While rest assured any cutting needed for these tiles would also be simple, I'm sure.
My bathroom went from dull and boring to classy and gorgeous with going from a flat, bland ceiling to a beautifully flamed out, textured ceiling.
I'm extremely pleased with the product, install guide and turn out.
I installed these tiles on the ceiling of our theater room. The were very easy to install and give a contemporary look that fits with the rest of our decor. The added benefit is the accoustic qualities of the tiles. They help prevent echoing in the room. Win win to me.
