Corner Profil

1. Explanation of accessories included with the profile

a. Plug-in connectors:

Profile with diffuser and end caps; plug-in connectors are included for connection between profiles, or for corners.

The plug-in connectors are used to connect one profile to another. They help to ensure that the profile sections will not get twisted against each other but can be laid in place evenly along their entire length.

b. End caps:

The end caps can be used to terminate the profile against a surface, or to close it off at a corner of the wall.

2. Assembly

a. Preparation:

  1. Observe the assembly instructions.
  2. Before painting or wallpapering, clean the profile with a standard glass cleaner. This will significantly improve the adhesion of the paint or wallpaper paste. Make sure to use a wallpaper paste that will bond well to plastic (extra-strong type).
  3. Choose the type of building adhesive according to the supporting surface. The ceiling side of the profile is ribbed in order to ensure optimum adhesion of the building adhesive. The supporting surface should be dry and dust-free. Observe processing instructions for the building adhesive.
  4. If a filler is required for mounting on an uneven ceiling, make sure to choose a type that will bond well both to the surface and the plastic. The profile can be sanded.
  5.  During assembly and mounting, leave the diffuser in place. Otherwise, the profile might warp, which would make it difficult to insert the diffuser afterwards.

b. Sequence of steps according to assembly instructions

Apply building adhesive evenly. Observe processing instructions of the adhesive manufacturer.
Attach stripes with their adhesive back to the mounting area in the profile, evenly and without tension.
Snap in the diffuser at one end, then push into place along the entire length.
  1. Start the mounting process from a corner of the room.
  2. Shorten profiles, including diffuser, to required length.
  3. Establish power connection from transformer to stripe. Lay cables and fasten temporarily. The cables can be connected at a corner or anywhere else on the profile. If required, insert an extension cable behind the transformer.
  4. Apply the corners and profile sections with adhesive, one by one. In case of very uneven ceilings or walls, secure them additionally with screws and wall plugs, as required. During application, leave the diffusers in place!
  5. Always insert plug-in connectors between profile sections in order to achieve a straight and stable connection.
  6. If required, level out any unevenness in the surface with a solvent-free filler. Finish by sanding if required.
  7. After the adhesive has set, the diffuser may be removed.
  8. Attach the stripes to the provided area, and connect them to the supply cable. The space behind the area for attaching the stripes can be used as a cable guide.
  9. Stripes can be bent around corners from one mounting area to the next. There is no need for any special corners.
  10. Put the diffusers back in place.
  11. Before painting, clean the profile with a glass cleaner to remove any residues of dust and grease.

c. Further processing

Painting with a roller; beforehand, use a glass cleaner to remove any residues of dust and grease.
The mounted profile can be covered with wallpaper. Cut wallpaper exactly to size, or use a cutter to cut any protruding edges.
  1. For painting, it is recommended to use a roller. Brushes tend to leave marks in the painted surface. The profile can be painted over with commercially available emulsion or wall paint. Do not use any paints containing solvents, which might attack the plastic.
  2. Two coats of paint are recommended to achieve good opacity.
  3. As an alternative, profiles can be covered with wallpaper. Cut the protruding edge of the wallpaper at the edge of the profile.
  4. After wallpapering and/or painting, the protective film can be removed from the diffuser. This saves additional cleaning in case any paint has been splashed.
