Hexagon 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)
The design is well done and the imprint is clean and seamless when the tiles are lined up. They are also easy to glue-up because they weigh nearly nothing. I think they are shape molded styrofoam and that is something to keep in mind. You have to be careful when working with them, to make sure you don't break the panels, but once they are up on the ceiling they are not in much danger. They are for a specific use case and a specific need. I wouldn't use them on walls or anywhere that might get bumped into. These can add some extra style to the right room, but they are more fun than fancy.
I don’t think anything could be easier to install. These wall panels are so simple to put up and they really look amazing. You don’t need to be an expert to cut the panels with a box cutter or exacto type knife and glue them to the existing wall. The panels have sound dampening qualities, we put panels on the wall adjacent to our laundry room. Our wall now looks so much better and the room is so much quieter. Love how easy upgrading a room can be and that the panels are paintable so if we decide to change the wall colors it is as easy as just painting.
La Maison Ceilings Hexagon Wall Panels are perfect for improving the look and feel of a room. Each 2ft x 2ft panel is attached to the wall or ceiling with panel adhesive and combine to provide a clean seamless look that give depth to any room. We attached several to walls with shared by other rooms and was amazed that they provided the added benefit of dampening the noise that leaks into other rooms. We are now looking at other designs for other rooms the in house.
These wall panel squares are bigger than I thought. I had to Google to figure out what type of glue would work because I didn't see any directions, that's the only part so far that has been difficult. These are paintable and look awesome so far, I've only painted 2. They are kinda big which is great but takes more time! I'm really enjoying these!!
