RECOMMENDED PRACTICE Square the grid before beginning the installation to avoid later alignment issues. Less than 1/16" variation in diagonal measurements should be targeted. Common practice is to install wall angle " lower than the face of the grid to hide field cut edges. If this cannot be done then follow steps below. Step 1: If you have a fabric that makes the panels directional, make sure the arrows on the backs of the panels are aligned and make your cuts to maintain that direction. It's a good practice to measure both edges of the grid opening, and mark those on the panel face. Step 2: Pull the fabric back from the cut edge just over " and not farther!

Step 3: Use a spray contact adhesive such as 3M Spray 77 to coat both the panel core edge and the fabric. Do not get the adhesive on the face of the panel. Step 4: If the direction of the fabric caused you to cut off an edge that rested on the grid, use the GL Perimeter Clips providedup to 30" use 2 clips. Add one clip in the center for longer edges.
