If Edge J-trims were purchased for finishing off your ceiling edges, you can attach the trim to the ceiling panels or to the ceiling along the perimeter, before installing the ceiling panels. If applying the trim to perimeter of ceiling first, the trim can be bonded to the ceiling using Loctite PL Premium adhesive by applying a 1/8" bead to the back of the trim and pressing firmly on to the ceiling. Nails or staples can be used to tack trim in place until adhesive is cured. NOTE: If you purchased Crown Molding to finish your edges, you can learn how to install crown molding here.
To ensure professional looking results, the room layout should be balanced with panels centered in the room and equal size border panels used on opposite sides of the room. To find out what size to cut the border panels in one direction, see the formula below. Then repeat formula for other direction.
Establish your string (or chalkline) at this measurement (see above). These lines should be parallel with the walls and will help you align the first border panels. If your room is out of square, adjust accordingly.
For 2' x 4' ceiling panels. The deep indentations in the Traditional 3 & 5, Art Deco, and Rosette styles prevent them from being cut in the middle and resting properly at the border areas as a border panel. Accordingly, these styles look best when the Hammered style panels are used on the perimeter of the room. All other styles can be cut and used as a border fill panel. See Fasadeideas.com for more information.
The preferred method for installing Glue-Up panels is to apply the adhesive directly to the back of the ceiling panels using Loctite® PL Premium tube adhesive in a 1/8" diameter bead. Or use tub adhesive. In both cases, we recommend spreading the material out on the panel evenly with an 1/8" trowel shown below.
Keep adhesive about 1/2" from the outside edges to prevent leakage. Carefully read and follow manufacturer's directions for the adhesive.
Install the full panels by overlapping each new row over the previous row. Complete each row by cutting and installing the remaining border panels if applicable.
Tip: You must remove any adhesive that gets on the finished side of the panel before it dries. Using a cloth or paper towel, clean off any residue with mineral spirits.
One hour after the ceiling has been completed, firmly press on ALL the ceiling panels you've installed to ensure proper bonding and adhesive set-up.
Once you have your ceiling installed, the panels can be cleaned with warm, soapy water. Never use abrasive cleaners, scouring pads or anything with harsh chemicals.
To speed up adhesive curing time, lightly spray the adhesive with a fine mist of clean water after applying the Loctite PL Premium adhesive to the panel.
CAUTION: Even though these panels are "Class A" fire rated, they can be deformed with excessive heat. Never expose to heat over 140° F.
Never use abrasive materials such as scouring pads to clean surface; use only a soft cloth or sponge with mild soap and water.
