Installing EverPanel Modular Wall Panels
Installing EverPanel is a relatively simple processes that involves laying out your floorplan, moving panels into position, and utilizing the right connectors to fasten panels together in the configuration required.
Two people can install about 100ft of wall in approximately 30 minutes, meaning that entire offices can be build from scratch in a single day, using a small team. No prior experience is required to build with EverPanel and the panels are light enough for nearly anyone to position and install.
We recommend designing your installation using our 3D builder first, and using printed instructions from the builder to help guide you on site.
Basic Installation Instructions
IMPORTANT - READ THIS FIRST:
It is critical to follow installation instructions carefully and to err on the side of caution when installing panels. Be sure to always provide sufficient support columns and/or T-shaped or L-shaped returns to stabilize your wall. Always connect wall sections side-by-side using Inter-panel Connectors or zip ties to secure panels, so that they do not separate when in use. Never stack panels without sufficient lug connectors between sections. It is always advisable to watch for pinch points and to wear gloved when installing panels.
Failure to follow proper installation techniques or to secure panels properly can result in a wall section falling, potentially causing injury. If you are unsure about an installation technique, always stop and contact our team for guidance before proceeding.
ATTACHING EVERPANEL TO FIXED WALLS, FLOORS, AND CEILINGS USING L-CHANNEL EXTRUSIONS
It is possible to connect EverPanel to traditional fixed walls, ceilings, or floors using either our extruded White 3” x 3” L-shaped extrusion or metal L-brackets. Simply fasten this extrusion to the permanent wall using standard screws. Then, nest the EverPanel into the inside of the L extrusion, and screw the panel into the extrusion using a standard self-tapping screw through the outside of the extrusion and into the panel. We recommend fastening the panel to the extrusion every 2 feet or so.
ADDING WINDOW PANELS
We offer specialized window panel kits, that allow placement of clear polycarbonate sheets on top of panels or into window openings, allowing you to create designs that allow in more light, and create a more visually interesting effect.
In order to create a standard window, use our EverPanel Mounting Caps, which are brackets fastened to standard Finishing Caps. The Mounting Caps are installed by placing them in receiver holes, just like the standard Finishing Caps. We recommend spacing Mounting Caps 2 to 3 receiver holes apart from each other and filing the once in between with standard Finishing Caps.
ALTERNATE INTER-PANEL CONNECTION METHOD
For an alternate panel connection method, you can use 4”-10” zip ties to connect panels to each other.
Simply loop 1-2 zip ties through the top and side receiver holes on the adjacent panels and cinch them, such that panels are fastened tightly. Once positioned and tightened, trim the excess length off of the zip-tie and rotate the tie so that is is not protruding.
Further Installation Concepts
HANGING ART WORK ON EVERPANEL WALLS
It is easy to hang art work on EverPanel Walls. Simply screw into EverPanel using a suitably sized screw. Pre-drill the whole using a drill and then insert an appropriately sized hanging screw. Be sure to check that the screw is inserted solidly (not loose) before hanging artwork.
It is also important to ensure that your construction has the necessary columns, returns, supports, or fixed wall connections, to ensure a stable wall for hanging.
FASTENING EVERPANEL TO CEILINGS
Utilize the EverPanel Ceiling Bracket to fasten EverPanel to ceilings for additional stability. The EverPanel Ceiling Bracket is designed to snap into the top of a panel and then to adjust as needed (up to 2.5ft) to the ceiling above. This is ideal for free standing walls in galleries, offices, or anywhere a decorative “floating wall” effect is desired.
When installing EverPanel Ceiling Brackets, start with the 3-way clip that engages with the panel as far up the post as possible, touching the top flange.
Then, insert the post and clip into the panel receiver slots until the clip snaps down into place.
Slide the post upwards until it touches the ceiling and tighten the bottom locking screw to keep the post raised at the necessary height.
