Non-Woven Wall Covering Hanging Instructions

Please read these instructions carefully before hanging this wall covering. 

It is advisable that a professional decorator is used.

Preparation

  • Walls should be dry, clean and even.
  • Remove any old wallpaper and loose paint.
  • Roughen painted surfaces with sandpaper.
  • For best results we recommend that walls are cross lined using a good quality lining paper. Sizing the lining paper will aid adhesion.
  • Lining should be allowed to dry out completely before hanging the wall covering.

Pasting and Hanging

  • This is a paste the wall product. The decorator should paste the wall and not the back of the wall covering.
  • A good quality, solvent free, fungicide protected ready-mixed ‘tub’ adhesive – specifically for paste the wall non-woven papers should be used.
  • Paste should be evenly applied to the wall to hang one length at a time, to an area slightly wider than the width of the paper.
  • Butt joints and use a decorators brush to smooth down the wall covering, working from the centre to the edges to express air bubbles.
  • Avoid squeezing paste out of the joints and ensure paste does not get onto the brush or roller.
  • No paste should be allowed to come into contact with the surface and hands should be kept clean and dry whilst hanging the wall covering.
  • Paste will damage the surface. The company cannot accept responsibility for marks or damage caused by paste.
  • Should any paste have been allowed to come into contact with the surface, it should be lightly sponged whilst still moist, using a clean damp sponge.
