HOW TO CUT WALL PANELS

Here our in house handy man Stuart demonstrates 
how to cut 10mm, 8mm & 5mm depth panels...
Panels are straight forward to cut which is a huge part of their appeal.

TOOLS YOU WILL NEED

○ PENCil

○ RULER
○ TAPE MEASURE 
○ YOUR CHOSEN CUTTING TOOL


OPTIONS FOR CUTTING TOOLS
Tenon saw or Hand Saw
You can use either but please ensure the saw has a fine tooth pattern for a clean cut
Jigsaw 

A jigsaw is great for cutting curves or patterns but we do recommend a fine tooth blade 

Stanley Knife 

A sharp Stanley knife will give a perfect clean cut, please ensure you are using a stable flat surface when cutting
Circular Saw or Chop Saw

Both can be used but the blade can often give a coarse/rough cut so please test first.


DISCLAIMER - Always ensure you are cutting on a stable surface and take care to support the cut end. Do not cut panels outside in direct sunlight.

STEP 1 

○ TAKE YOUR PANEL AND STABILISE ON A FLAT AND STURDY SURFACE IN PREPARATION FOR CUTTING 
○ FLIP THE PANEL OVER SO THAT THE FACE OF THE PANEL IS FACING DOWNWARDS


step 2

○ TAKE YOUR TAPE MEASURE & PENCIL

○ MARK OUT YOUR REQUIRED MEASUREMENT'S ON THE BACK OF THE PANEL

○ MAKE SURE YOU MAKE TWO MARK'S AT BOTH ENDS OF THE PANEL 


STEP 3

○ TAKE YOUR RULER

○ MAKE A CLEAR STRAIGHT LINED MARK WITH THE RULER IN PREPARATION OF CUTTING THE PANEL


step 4 - FINAL STEP

○ TAKE YOUR SAW AND CUT AN INCISION AT ONE END OF THE PANEL
○ SLOWLY START TO CUT THE PANEL IN A STRAIGHT LINE DIRECTLY THROUGH THE PANEL FOLLOWING YOUR LINED MARK PRECISELY 

○ ONCE YOUR PANEL IS CUT DOWN TO SIZE IT IS READY TO BE INSTALLED AS RECOMMENDED
