Installation Instructions SPLINES WALL & CEILING MOUNTING COMPLETING THE INSTALL Once the first panel is in place, snugly engage a spline provided into the kerfed edge, attach to the wall surface as described above. Note that the spline length is 8'. Plan full-length splines for panels 8' and shorter, and 8' splines for panels longer than 8'. For these longer panels, center splines. Engage the next panel on the splined assembly. Be sure to keep each panel in alignment and plumb. Normally the last panel in a run is held by adhesive on the trailing edge. FIELD CUTTING 1. Pull back fabric just beyond field cut. Keep as close to field cut point as possible without damaging fabric with field cut. 2. Cut and remove excess substrate. A small metal cutting blade works well to cut hardened fiberglass edges. Trim the fabric so it will wrap approximately 2" onto the back of the panel. 3. Cut strips of laminate (Formica), hardboard or similar material to match substrate thickness. Apply to the cut edge with spray adhesive such as 3M Spray 77. This is required for a crisp, uniform fabric edge. 4. Apply spray adhesive to fabric back, panel edge and 2" of panel back. Wrap fabric to back and tailor corners to match unaffected corners using a sharp scissors. CEILING INSTALLATIONS Spline installation on ceilings is possible in limited situations. Usually a maximum distance between splines of 30" is required for 1" or greater fiberglass thickness, or no more than 24" for mineral board. Additional adhesive between splines is required. tep #1 Ste Step #4 Step #3 Step #2
