How to install the
— wood wall panels indoors
Wood is a natural product. Every tree is different, which makes wood wall panelling just so unique. Natural variations in colour and sorting contribute to this. Before, during and after production, our wall panels undergo a thorough inspection. Even as an installer, it is best to check the panels before mounting them horizontally, vertically or diagonally on the wall. Do you have doubts about certain panels? Then don't process them and contact your supplier.
Prepare your yard
To ensure optimal and lasting results, prepare your space, wall and panels correctly. Go through the steps carefully. In addition, skilled installation is obviously crucial.
Installing wooden wall coverings — step by step
Arrange your Wall Esthetics panels on the floor first. This allows you to see the pattern and determine any cutouts. Mark your cutouts and carefully cut them out with a jigsaw.
Start at the bottom of the wall. Cut the first panel in the middle widthwise with a crosscut saw. Start your row with 1 of the half panels, align it on the left side and attach. Use a spirit level or laser to continue gluing the row and follow the plumb line to create a random bond. This will make the seams invisible.
Glue the wooden wall panelling with a suitable and high-quality glue, such as Emfimastic High Power. Always apply the glue line in a horizontal direction. Clad a wooden wall? Then use a nail gun, in combination with a polymer adhesive. For wall panels above eye level, shoot nails at a downward angle, panels below eye level fix at an upward angle. Nails at eye level shoot into the corners of the panel and between the battens.
Are you at the end of your row? Cut the last panel of the row to size with a crosscut saw. With the rest of the panel, start the next row.
After installing 5 rows, check thoroughly that your lines are still straight. Correct where necessary and keep the random pattern of the wooden wall paneling.
Keep an expansion joint of 10 mm on all sides of the wall by using spacers. These joints absorb the influence of temperature differences and humidity on the wood.
