Cat Wall™ Install

Tiles come complete with an installation pack that contains the following:

1 Batten
4 Fixings
1 Small Drill Bit
1 Large Drill Bit

You will need a drill, medium size cross headed screwdriver, spirit level & steel tape measure to install your Cat Wall™ noting that if you don’t have a spirit level there is a work around using just a tape measure.

The fixing points on the batten are set out at 100mm centres & where possible it’s best to get a fixing through studs behind plasterboard, which are normally set out at 400mm or 600mm centres - you can also use the small bit to drill new fixing holes in the batten if you need to set out from the standard 100mm centres.

We recommend using 4 fixIngs when installing onto a plasterboard cavity wall & 2 fixings when installing onto studs or a masonry wall noting that you may need a specialist drill bit when drilling through a masonry wall.

Cat Wall Install Shelf Hangers.png
 

Locate the shelf hanger into the holes on the back of the Tile in either left, centre or right position - make sure they are fully engaged into the holes & locked into position

Start with the bottom Tile & work up

Locate the shelf back edge first onto the sides of the hanger then work the font of the shelf over the front of the hanger to lock it into position.

The shelves lock on the the hanging frames tightly to keep things safe so the trick to un-assembling them is to remove the Tile from the wall & work each end of the shelf off the frame bit-by-bit
