Gluing, nailing or screwing to the wall with tiles?
What do we recommend?
With our wall hanger you have the free choice: Gluing, nailing or screwing.
Note: Screwing is not a bad alternative to gluing! Our screws are only 4 mm thick and leave only one small hole. If your wall allows it, just screw the wall hanger into the wall. The small hole can later easily and quickly to spatter. Perfect.
Attach the wallhanger
Hold wall hanger with spirit level straight on wall.
Glue, nail or screw the wall hanger to the wall.
Now hang up your picture with the picture module. To do this, you use the picture eyelets, the prong hangers or the adhesive sheet on your picture. Align the image vertically and horizontally. Then you align the picture hanger until the picture hangs straight.
YOUR WALL READY TO HANG UP?
Suitable for many wall surfaces
The hanger is suitable for many wall surfaces, if stability and texture of your wall has been taken into account: For example: fiberglass wallpaper/glass fabric wallpaper, rough fiber/rough fiber wallpaper, non-woven wallpaper/paper wallpaper/pattern wallpaper/textured wallpaper, vinyl wallpaper/plastic wallpaper, Coating plasters/synthetic resin plasters, limestone, gypsum fibre boards, wood, concrete, plaster, tiles and various plastic surfaces.
Your wall plays a big role in hanging the picture: Your picture is hanging on it! Your wall should be able to hold your image in terms of stability and surface.
Even if our hanger with the pre-assembled adhesive tape holds your picture to the wall, it may be that your wall surface will subside and both will fall off. To avoid this, be sure that your wall surface keeps what it promises! Put on our small nails here! This keeps your image, protects your wall surface and avoids crashes! If you remove the hanger later, take a little mortar, paint or wall surface and cover the small holes.No problem! The holes are no longer visible!
Silicone-containing wall surfaces? The adhesive effect of the hanger cannot be fully developed and the load-bearing capacity cannot be achieved if your wall surface has been painted with a wall paint containing silicone/silicate. If this is the case, we recommend that you attach the hanger to your wall with the supplied nails or to screws. This can prevent possible crashes.
With small bumps ( 0.5 mm) on the wall surface, you can glue your hanger and expect a maximum load capacity of 2 kg. For coarse unevenness (> 0.5 mm) on the wall surface, gluing is not useful and it can not be expected with the entire load capacity (max 2 kg): Although the hanger is equipped with a foam for correcting unevenness, However, it only corrects small irregularities. For coarse unevenness, we recommend using the supplied nails (eg roughened fiber) or screws and dowels (eg concrete) to fix the hanger clean on your wall. This gives you the full load capacity (max 4 kg) and your picture is stable even on walls with structure. If you remove your picture hanger later, you can close the small holes with ready-made spatula from the hardware store. Nothing more visible!
Weight of your image
Each hanger has high stability due to the design and production process. If your picture weighs less than 2 kg, you can glue the hangers to the wall, because the adhesive tape of the hanger can have a load capacity of max. However, to achieve this load capacity, please note our instructions regarding your wall. If your picture weighs more than 2 kg, we recommend you to attach the hanger to the wall with the nails or screws & dowels included in the set.
Important information for you & your image
Check wall hangers & image modules regularly
If you glue, nail or screw the wall hanger, please check the load capacity of the hanger at regular intervals (at least 1 time a month):
You can do this, among other things, by checking the hold of the hanger with regard to its adhesion, nails, screws and dowels: If the hanger already detaches to part or if it loses the hold on the wall, we recommend changing the fastening material, This gives you the optimal hold for your image. Unfortunately, it is not always clear to the end user whether the wall is also suitable for gluing, nailing or screwing (see above stability and condition of your wall).
In sensitive areas the hanger nailing or screws instead of gluing
By sensitive places we mean in the area of beds and whereabouts of people and animals, fragile objects or easily destructible surfaces. For sensitive areas, we recommend attaching the hanger to your wall with the supplied nails or screws as well as plugs and dispensing with the adhesive tape. Due to correct attachment with nails or screws as well as dowels, your image sits perfectly on the wall. Please estimate the possibility of using the hanger yourself, and play it safe before humans, animals or objects are harmed. In addition, our nails and screws leave only minimal damage to the wall.
