We want to help make your 3DAP installation a success!  Download our PDF of installation recommendations including:

    • Wall installation: Cleats, clips, standoffs, direct screw to wall, and adhesives.
    • Fixed or sliding partitions: Cable suspension, barn door and other sliding panel kits.
    • Structural metal channel and surface mount grips.

As a material supplier we do not install products. Installation methods can vary widely depending on your material choice, application and design intent.  As such, the suggestions below are general in nature. It is important to consult with the installation hardware manufacturer and a licensed contractor for the specifics of your project.  

Store, handle and install 3DAP per Architectural Woodwork Standards (AWS) 2nd Edition (2014), Section 8: Wall/Ceiling Surfacing and Partitions, available at www.awinet.org.  Panels are prefinished, so handle with care to avoid scratches!
