Using the correct plans and layout guides, layout the wall guard and make any necessary cuts before beginning the actual installation.
Select a section of the aluminum retainer. Mark the locations for the anchor holes on the retainer, centering the anchor holes along the retainer is recommended. 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.
Layout the wall guard retainers along the wall where the wall guard will be placed. At outside corner joints, the retainer should be 1/8” short of the corner on one side of the corner to allow for the corner adapter to fit correctly. As needed, place end caps and/or outside corners to the corresponding aluminum retainers. Slide the tab into the center channel of the retainer and mark the screw location on the retainer.
Measure the specified/required height from the floor for the wall guard, make marks along the wall at the desired height. Use a chalk line to connect the marks creating a visual reference for the alignment of the wall guard.
Place the retainer into position against the wall ensuring that the retainer is properly aligned, level, and at the proper height. Using the correct anchors attach the retainer to the wall. NOTE: Observe all safety precautions when drilling to avoid all utilities and re-bar.
