Wall Preparation: Acceptable
hanging surfaces must be clean, smooth, thoroughly dry and structurally
intact. All loose paint and other wallcoverings must be removed.
Freshly plastered walls must be drybefore application. It is
important to prime walls with a primer that provides a solid
color surface. This will avoid the possiblity of "strike
through" of tape and spackle lines or other variances in
the color of the wall. If there are any questions concerning
the surface to be covered, a test installation is the recommended
course of action.
Use clear adhesive. Do not dilute with water or other
additives. If clay base is used, cleanliness must be maintained.
Silence FR wallcovering should be table trimmed as to, balance
seam between ribs. A sharp blade must be used at all times.
Apply adhesive to the wall with a 3/8" nap paste roller.
Install fabric from top to bottom, between two plumb lines for
" absolute verticle alignment. Fabric should then be firmly
pressed to the wall using a 1/4"nap roller to l insure
maximum contact with adhesive. Complete installation instructions
are included with each Silence FR wallcovering shipment.
