Installing Metallaire Walls

Metallaire 24” x 48” panels and 18.5" x 48.5" backsplashes can be glued and nailed together to form an accent wall. First, using tin snips, cut the panels to fit around any obstacles on the wall. Then, use an adhesive to secure the metal wall panels to the wall. Be sure to use an adhesive that will adhere to the metal panels and to the wall surface where the panels are to be mounted. Follow the adhesive manufacturer's instructions. Nail the panels every 6" on the raised buttons to secure the panels to the wall. Use just enough coordinating cone head nails to secure the panels to the wall while the adhesive sets up. Do not remove the nails.

Using Plywood as a Subsurface

You may be required to use plywood as a subsurface for a metal wall installation. For this, install 1/4" plywood over the area that will be covered by the metal wall panels. Attach the panels to the plywood using cone head nails.
