Installation tips

Ceiling panels are generally installed using three distinct techniques, sticking directly onto the roof, iron track hanging, and directly pasted to the wooden board of a basic structure.

Iron Track Hanging

The first step is to make sure the ceiling is level using a spirit level. The next step is to calculate and mark the position of the hangers on the frame. Once this is done, you can start installing the hangers by screwing them into place. After that, you can begin attaching the ceiling panels to the hangers. Make sure to leave enough space between each panel so that they can expand and contract as needed. Finally, finish up by taping or caulking any gaps between the panels.

Pasted On Wooden Panels

Remember to make a minimum 10mm deep groove in the correct location of the wooden board, so that water ripple panels can be attached well to the board. Furthermore, make sure there is a sufficient distance between the sheet panels for the intended design effect. Lastly, allow the adhesive glue to get dry after about 12 hours. Water Ripple Ceiling Sheets are now ready to use.
