PROCESO DE INSTALACIÓN

Todo lo que necesitas para hacerlo

STEP 1

Medición de la superficie

MEASUREMENT

Measure the surface that you will cover and calculate how many slabs are needed to cover the area, sizes may vary depending on the model.

TOOLS

  • Measuring Tape
  • Calculator

STEP 2

Preparación

PREPARATION

Prepare all the boards to be used by the reference number found on the back of the slab. The number indicates the board design, each Glassydur board has different models in order to avoid repetition in shape and texture, same reference number boards should not be together, this will produce a perfect finishing in the final installation.

Start with one of the sides of the area, cutting one of the ends of the assembly of the boards in order to achieve a cut surface straight and with a right angle. For a better and faster finish, we recommend the use of a radial saw with a diamond blade or a compass saw with a special tungsten blade.

Place the board on the surface and drill several holes on the board surface and on the wall, preferably on the joints, using a drill bit for concrete surfaces.

TOOLS

  • Radial Saw or Standard Saw
  • Drill

STEP 3

Fijación de las placas

FIXING

Fix the boards on the wall with a screw and a screw plug (check support and technical specifications by the manufacturer). Afterwards proceed to seal the screw heads with Glassydur colour paste, in order to avoid it to be seen.

If you prefer not to use screw and a screw plug, cementitious adhesive can be used.

This option requires to apply adhesive at different fixing points between the wall and the Glassydur to be placed.

We suggest using top range cementitious glue and adapted to the surface to be placed on, a wide range of high adhesion adhesives can be found.

TOOLS

  • Screwdriver
  • Screws
  • Screw Plugs
  • Glassydur Paste
  • Adhesive

STEP 4

Colocación de las placas

PLACING

Place the first row of sheets to continue with the other rows. We suggest placing the Glassydur boards starting horizontally, with the first row and continuing with the following. Always starting with the corner boards followed by the flat ones, trying to fit them in as well as possible.

TOOLS

  • Screwdrivers
  • Screws
  • Screw Plug
  • Glassydur Paste
  • Adhesive
  • Colour Palette

STEP 5

Rejunte y acabado

SEALING AND/OR jOINTING

Proceed to the sealing of the joints between boards when needed, using a mortar with special colour by Glassydur. When the jointing mortar solidifies (solidifying time may vary depending on the wall surface, temperature and humidity). Use a pointing trowel in order to remove the mortar excess, when solidified, the mortar expands and the edges are sealed. Finally, remove the unnecessary mortar.

TOOLS

  • Glassydur Mortar
  • Ponting Trowel
