Harmony 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 tiles installed easily with the glue provided. A lot depends on how straight your walls and ceilings are (measuring and chalking are the key to installing them) I did install them myself so they weren't really that hard to do. They are a harder styrofoam so you have to be careful to not scuff or dent them when preparing or installing them. I only had one small spot between 1 tile I had to put putty in and sand lightly to fill the crack otherwise they lined up perfectly. Waiting til I can open windows to paint them but I've had several compliments on the accent they create.
I used these on the ceiling of our walk through bar area to give the room a little custom touch. They are made of styrofoam so we handled these extremely carefully and didn’t remove them from the box until we were ready to put them up. We used a paint sprayer to paint the tiles as well as the rest of the ceiling because they looked too fragile and had so much intricate detailing that I figured a brush would be a bad idea. Apparently the company also sells them prepainted. The tiles came with the adhesive that worked well for installation. Easy to install with two people. They look great and really make an impact in such a small area. This is an easy way to give any room that custom wow factor.
While the idea behind this product may be good I feel it has too much a 'fake' feel. Each panel is lightweight and glues on easy. Instructions are clear and the adhesive is included. The packaging was damaged upon arrival which for this type of product is a problem because they are styrofoam. The section that was damaged is not noticeable though. I would only recommend this product if you didn't want to retexture the wall or ceiling. I could see using this in a restaurant or commercial application but I'm not sure I'd use this in my home.
