How should your Akupanel | 60 mounted?
Akupanel | 60 Assembly Installation on wall with screws
Step 1: Prepare the wall
Start by preparing the wall. Wipe the wall with a cloth and remove any screws, nails, and other obstructions so that the wall is completely even. Then you can measure and mark where the panels are to be mounted.
Step 2: Choose the direction of the panels
The next step is to decide the direction in which your panels should face. With our Akupanel | 60, it is possible to rotate the panels to create either clear horizontal or vertical stripes on your wall.
If you want the stripes to be horizontal, make sure to rotate the panel so that the slats are facing upwards. If you want the stripes to be vertical, the slats should face horizontally.
Step 3: Setting up acoustic panels with screws
Prepare for the installation of the panels by screwing approximately 6 screws halfway into the felt. Distribute the screws evenly in the panels.
You are then ready to mount the panels. Screw the first 60 acoustic panel to the wall by screwing the black plaster screw (35 mm) through the black acoustic felt and into the wall. Check if the panel is mounted straight by using a spirit level along the way.
Use the spacers
When the next panels are to be mounted, it is important that the spacers included in the panel packages are used. The felt does not go all the way to the edge of the slats on one side. If the panels are therefore pushed completely together, the felt distance between the two panels will be too small. In addition, the panels must be done in the same way as the step before.
Step 3: Set up the rest of the panels
Continue setting up the panels on the wall. Make sure that each panel sits straight, and make sure to use the spacers along the way so that the distance is correct. In some cases, it can be advantageous to use spacers in both a top/bottom and a side.
