Using the correct plans and layout guides, determine the location of the top of the chair rail. Using a chalk line, snap a line along the wall 1/8” below the desired height to locate the top of the aluminum retainer.
Select a section of the aluminum retainer. Mark the locations for the anchor holes on the retainer, centering the anchor holes along the center channel of the retainer. Anchors are spaced 16” O.C. MAXIMUM with an anchor a maximum of 3” from the end of the retainer. Drill the anchor holes through the retainer at the marked locations. Repeat this step for each retainer. If necessary adjust spacing to accommodate studs. Use a #15 (.180”) drill bit for #8 fasteners, or a #7 (.201”) bit for #10 and 3/16” fasteners. Drill point fasteners may be used without pre-drilling the aluminum retainers on drywall installations having a continuous metal backing channel or studs.
Note: Observe all safety precautions when drilling to avoid all utilities and re-bar.
Begin installation of the aluminum retainers at corners allowing for the molded accessories. Use the appropriate accessory as a spacing template. To install the aluminum retainer, align the top of the retainer with the chalk line on the wall and fasten the retainer to the wall using the appropriate hardware.
Drywall with metal backing channel: #8 or #10 drill point drywall screw or #8 or #10 drill point pan head or hex washer head sheet metal screw.
Drywall without a stud or backing channel: Plastic Alligator® insert with a #8 or #10 pan head or hex washer head sheet metal screw or a 3/16” Toggler® brand toggle bolt with a pan head machine screw.
Masonry installation: Using the pre-drilled aluminum retainer as a template, mark and drill the wall to accept plastic Alligator® inserts or for 3/16” Tapcon® or similar fastener. Drill the holes in accordance with the instructions provided with the hardware.
If outside corners are required, assemble them at this point. The outside corners consist of a left-hand end cap and a corner adapter. Using a #10-1/2” screw attach the adapter to the end cap. Next attach all end caps and outside corners to the aluminum retainer by backing out the mounting screw at the end of the retainer, fit the end cap or corner into the retainer and re-drive the mounting screw, do not over tighten, as this could damage the molded part.
Measure between the molded accessories, cut the vinyl cover accordingly. Miter cut the vinyl cover for all angles not accommodated by the molded accessories. All cuts must be square and deburred.
Place the vinyl cover along the bottom of the appropriate aluminum retainer, pushing upwards along the length of the cover snap it into place on the aluminum retainer.
