Acoustic Panels (Changeable) Installation Instructions

Wall Preparation: Assumes drywall conditions
Required Installers: 2
Required Tools: Listed below

To Install Artwork: 

1.      On a smooth, clean, non-abrasive surface, place the frame pieces together to form the correct configuration. Using the 3-mil hex wrench and supplied hardware, connect the frame pieces together with the 90° corner connections.
2.      Connect all pieces to form unit, see picture 1.
3.      Determine placement location and center of the wall with measuring tape. Mark center of wall or location with pencil as a placement guide. In general, most units are centered between existing wall elements or at center on wall.
4.      The suggested height to the center of the unit is 62”- 64” above finished floor (AFF).
5.      Using the pencil mark as you guide for center use the measuring tape and measure from the floor up to 62”- 64” or desired height and make a mark using pencil. Place unit on wall surface at the center of this mark.
6.      Hold Z Bracket underneath frame and mark hole placements with level on top of unit, see picture 2. Installer 1 will hold the frame against the wall up while installer 2 will hold Z Brackets in place and make marks on the wall.
7.      Drill 3/16” holes in your wall surface with drill then insert drywall anchors into drilled holes and tap flush with hammer

Pro Tip#1: If no drill bits are available, then a screwdriver can be used to punch out the hole and minimize drywall dust and clean up.

8.      Insert mounting screw into anchor and use a screwdriver or drill to drive screws into wall surface.
9.      Install the top Z Brackets below the finished height of the panel frame. The Z-Brackets should be loosely installed so that the frame fits easily into the Z-Brackets, see picture 2.
10.   Install the bottom Z-Brackets to complete frame installation, see picture 3.
11.   Install the acoustic core within the panel frame. The acoustic core may be friction fit between the rails, glued, or mechanically fastened to the wall surface, see picture 4.
12.   To install the fabric skin, start in the corners. Fold the fabric edge and insert the silicone gasket into the frame channel. Continue inserting the gasket into the channel, working your way toward the center from each corner.

Note: Always check wall surface to ensure that there is no existing wall damage. Installation must be done with provided hardware to ensure a safe installation and to retain warranty. 

Clean-up and Care:

- Use a dry Microfiber Towel to remove fingerprints on side of frame.
- Use a Magic Eraser or rubbing alcohol (if available) and a microfiber cloth to remove any scuffs and/or marks made to the wall during installation.
- Use a handheld vacuum or damp Microfiber Towel if drywall dust is present on the baseboard or floor.
