SureStrip Wallcoverings Instructions

Important Checks

  • Check that the number of rolls and the reference correspond correctly with your order and that they have the same batch number on matching patterns.
  • Manufacturers instructions vary and you should follow these when delivered with the product.

Requirements

  • Sharp scissors or a straight edge and craft knife.
  • Pencil
  • Extra strong all purpose wallpaper / wallcovering paste
  • Paint Roller
  • Soft cloth to clean off excess paste
  • Level or plumb line to achieve a vertical line.

Ensure the surfaces are clean, smooth and dry

  • For professional results it is important to prepare the surfaces to be decorated.
  • Ensure surfaces to be decorated are clean and dry.
  • High gloss and semi-gloss paint finishes should be sanded in order for adhesive to grip.(80 grit sand paper)
  • Allow for fresh paint to cure before applying the wallcovering.
  • A coating of wall size should be used. This will assist in the easy removal wallcoverings when redecorating.

Paste the Wall

  • Measure 50cm from a corner and mark a vertical straight line on the wall to line up your first sheet of paper.
  • Use a roller to evenly paste where the first length of wallpaper will hang.
  • Make sure you use plenty of paste and that the pasted area is slightly wider than the width of the roll.

Hang your first drop

  • It is not necessary to waste time carefully measuring and cutting of drops of wallcovering.
  • Leaving the roll at the bottom of the wall pull up sufficient wallcovering to reach the top point of your decorating.
  • Slide the paper into position with one edge against your vertical line on the wall.
  • The other edge will wrap around the corner by 2cm.
  • Smooth it down with a damp sponge or brush.
  • Trim the drop top and bottom to length with your scissors or a straight edge and craft knife.
  • Don't worry about very small blisters - they'll disappear when the paper dries.

Repeat for each drop

  • For each strip make sure the pattern matches and the edges are tight together.
  • Some patterns require alternative lengths hanging upside down. Check the label for the symbol with one arrow facing up and one facing down.
  • "No match" on the label means there is no pattern match.

Removal

  • Removal is super easy.
  • Lift up a bottom corner and peeling steadily up towards the top.
  • Because of the non-woven backing of most paste-the-wall wallcoverings it is completely strippable in full sheets.
