Tips for Assembly and Installation
- Trim excess plastic around panel. Use a scissor or utility knife. If using thicker gauge plastic (.060 or thicker) score the plastic with knife and bend the plastic back. The edge should snap, leaving you with a clean edge.
- Once trimmed the piece can be mounted to any flat surface. Including sheetrock walls, wood paneling, theatrical flats, etc.
When mounting panels, recommended hardware includes:
- Glue specifically made for the material – i.e. ABS glue, PVC glue, General Purpose Adhesive, etc.
- Screws with washers. Be sure to use washers or the plastic will stretch and break off of the screw. (If you need to hide screws or staples you can do so with plastic wood filler prior to painting.)
- When lining up pieces to create a continuous wall or structure be sure to line all sheets in the same direction. This will ensure a cohesive look.
