How to Install
Ensure the area is smooth, clean and dry.
Alcohol wipes can be used to clean the area prior to install.
Measure the area DesignerSplash is going to cover including any PowerPoints (if applicable). Mark the measurements on the reverse side of the panel.
Note: If any electrical works are to be performed, this should be carried out by a certified electrician. If using behind a gas hob, ensure a 50mm distance is away from the DesignerSplash panels, for electrical or induction, a minimum of 30mm.
Remember to also allow for 3mm for expansion and contraction of the sheets and allow 3mm gap on each side if using the butt joint method.
Working on the reserve side of the panel, cut your panels using a circular saw (with aluminium cutting blades).
For PowerPoints, use a drill for the corners, then use a jigsaw to cut out the edges.
Test the positioning by applying the panel against the area without using any bonding materials. Once satisfied, remove protective masking on the reserve side.
Apply 3M double-sided VHB tape on the area in vertical strips, 400mm apart, then then apply Tec7 or X-Tack (or other) silicone adhesive with a caulking gun in a zig-zag pattern between the vertical strips of 3M double-sided tape.
Apply the DesignerSplash panel onto the area.
Leave for a few minutes before carefully removing the protective masking on the front side.
To ensure a clean finish, apply masking tape around the 3mm gaps where silicon is required to be filled, then apply Tec 7 (or other) sealant into the 3mm gaps between DesignerSplash panels and other edges to avoid any water infiltration.
Failure to do so may cause the panel to delaminate and void the warranty.
