Acclimatization and choice of glue
We recommend acclimatizing wood panels to the new environment for 1-2 days, keeping them packed. Room temperature must be above 17°C and 35 - 65 % relative humidity must prevail. This will ensure that the panels get used to the climate of the new room. Use elastic polymer-based mounting adhesive to glue the panels to the wall. Do not use dispersion-based (water based) adhesives, as this can lead to deformation of the panels!
Make sure that the surface on which you will install the panels is relatively flat. The surface must also be clean, dry (a maximum residual moisture of 5 %) and free of dust. The prod- uct is intended for use in rooms with relative humidity from 35% to 65%. The panels are made of natural wood, that is why use them in high humidity places is not recom- mended.
Fixing the panels to the wall
Use polymer-based flexible mounting adhesive to glue the panels to the wall. Do not use dis- persion-based (water based) adhesives, as this can lead to deformation of the panels. When choosing an adhesive, follow the adhesive manufacturer’s instructions about the surface onto which you plan to glue the panels, as well as the required amount of adhesive. Apply the glue as instructed. Make sure that the glue is also applied to the corners of the panels.
What to consider when assembling the panels
This material usually comes from old barns and mills where boards have been under the influence of wind, rain and sun for decades. Carefully processed and cleaned with greatest attention to the colour and texture. After brushing with machines, we get a unique looking texture and colour that cannot be artificially made. The brushed surface has a pleasant, warm, brownish tone. As a result, they can be easily used in any spatial design - contemporary or classical, serving modern interiors too.
Laying of panels
You can arrange the panels on the wall in your own unique pattern (horizontally, vertically, diagonally, or in any pattern of your choice) or as shown in the diagram. If the panels are of the same width (pic. A). If the panels are of different widths (pic. B). When starting a new row, we recommend using the previous (same width) row cuttings.
Sawing of panels
Wall panels can be sawn in several ways. Make markings on the panel to know where to saw. Saw the panel with a hand saw, circular saw, or jigsaw. Before sawing, read the operating instructions for the saw of choice. Since the panels are made of natural wood, some panels may bend slightly due to moisture and tension in the wood. If the bending of the panel does not allow it to be attached to the wall, cut it in half and place it according to the general pat- tern, this will not change the overall appear- ance of the wall in any way.
Outer angle could be made by applying panel in 45-degree angle (pic. A) or by using decorative moldings. (pic. B).
The inner corner
The inner corner is created by sawing the panel at a 45-degree angle.
You can use our WWD panels on most indoor surfaces that are relatively smooth, dry and free of dust and debris. It can be applied to ceilings, walls, back splashes, islands, desks, etc.
Yes, you can in case if there is no open flame.
The product is intended for use in rooms with relative humidity from 35% to 65%. The panels are made of natural wood, that is why use them in high humidity places is not recommended.
They can be glued to any surface, such as plaster walls, chipboard, wood, painted walls, concrete walls, etc. the main condition is for the wall to be flat and clean of dust and of course the wall must be dry (a maximum residual moisture of 5 %).
Not really. But if You use double tape, then it could be removable later.
Yes, you can apply paint or any other treatment if you wish. We suggest at first try to do at little piece of wall panels to ensure that result will meet your expectation.
Panels work by dampening and deadening sound waves, helping to eliminate any back noise and echoes.
You can use a static brush or a vacuum cleaner.
Yes, you can. Please follow manual instruction and tips about necessary tools for it.
Please refer to installation video here for step-by-step instructions on how to install.
We recommend acclimatizing wood panels to the new environment for 1-2 days, keeping them packed. Room temperature must be above 17°C and 35 - 65 % relative humidity must prevail. This will ensure that the panels get used to the climate of the new room.
Panels prides itself on having some of the very best reclaimed/oak wood on the market however with wood being wood there may be the odd chance of bowing but as long as you follow us how to guide then this is not a problem.
Please note that decorative side of OZO and OZO Lite is structured oak.
Start assembling the panels from the bottom up, leaving 3-5 mm gaps between the floor and walls. Use a spirit level for the job.
Wall panels can be sawn in several ways. Make markings on the panel to know where to saw. Saw the panel with a hand saw, circular saw, or jigsaw.
No, wall just must be clean and free of dust. If you do decide to paint, we recommend letting the paint fully cure for at least 30 days before applying the planks.
Use elastic polymer-based mounting adhesive to glue the panels to the wall. Do not use dispersion-based (water based) adhesives, as this can lead to deformation of the panels! We recommend to use our WWD polymer base glue.
The panels are packaged by 1m2 in card box. The box dimensions depend on panel model sizes.
It' s depend on model. Under each panel model is information about amount of panels in one box.
You can locate sizes of panel under the each model.
In one box comes 1m2 of panels.
You can find the m2 for your project by multiplying the length times the width. We recommend adding 5% of your project’s m2 as a waste factor due to any scraps that occur when cutting.
If You will use our WWD glue, which one is highly recommend for our panels. You can calculate it take m2 of panels dived with 1,75 and You will get amount of cartridges necessary for gluing panels.
Yes, we offer a sample pack of each style under our products page. You can purchase the sample pack here. These will give you an idea of the variance that can occur from piece to piece since each plank is an authentic reclaimed piece of wood. Yes, we also offer oak panel samples. You can purchase the sample here. *Please note if you would like to test the adhesive it is industrial strength. It is designed to be a permanent application and removing it could damage your wall.
