Install temporary braces to hold the center of the back and side panels tight to the studs for approximately 24 hours while adhesive sets. Add cushioning between panels and braces to prevent scratching the panels.

When installing greenboard, position drywall screws above the top nailing flange. If you choose to screw through the nailing flange, you MUST drill clearance holes in the flange to avoid cracking/damaging the flange.

POST INSTALLATION CLEAN-UP

Remove all construction debris. Tile grout can be removed with a wooden popsicle stick or tongue depressor. Do not use wire brushes or any other metal implement on surface.

Post installation clean-upgenerally can be completed using warm water and liquid dishwashing detergent. Stubborn dirt or stains may be removed using granular Spic and Span® mixed with water.

Painter's naphtha can be used to remove excess adhesives and/or wet oil-basepaint.

AFTERCARE and CLEANING

! WARNING: Cleaning products with labels that say “not suitable for use with ABS, acrylic or polystyrene”SHOULD NOT BE USED. Read all labels carefully.

Excessively hot water may cause surface damage.

HARSH CHEMICALS SHOULD NEVER BE USED ON SHOWER WALL SURFACE. Clean after use with a mild liquid household detergent cleaner. Do not use Lestoil, Lysol Disinfectant (spray or concentrate), or Lysol Basin, Tub and Tile Cleaner, Windex, Mr. Clean, Dow Disinfectant Bathroom Cleaner, or cleaning products in aerosol cans.

Do not use wire brushes, knives or sharp objects to remove stains, cigarette tar deposits, or other surface blemishes.

Abrasive cleaners or powders must not be used, since they will dull the surface. If the glossy surface loses its sheen, dulled areas or light scratches can be restored by rubbing with a white "automotive type" polishing compound and waxing with a "liquid wax."

Do not wax areas where you walk or stand.

Do not allow nail polish remover, acetone, dry cleaning fluid, paint remover or other solvents to come into contact with the surface.

Clean the surrounding surface immediately after using caustic drain cleaners.

Burning cigarettes will damage the surface.

Should damage to the fixture occur, repairs can be made quickly and easily.

Your distributor or builder can provide details.
