PVC Strip Curtain - DIY Installation Guide for Bolt-on, Soffit Fix System

STEP 2 of 2

vi/ Secure the brackets with track attached to brickwork and concrete with raw-bolts, to steelwork with high tensile nuts & bolts and to timber with coach screws or large gauge wood screws

vii/ Push each pre drilled pvc strip over the bolts with the concave side facing the track

viii/ Hold each strip to the track using the aluminium plate, thread the M8 nuts onto the bolt but do not tighten fully

ix/ Slide the strip to the desired starting place before tightening the nuts

x/ If you are including Red warning strips remember to position these first

xi/ To achieve 100% overlap each strip must butt up to the next on both sides of the track:

xii/ For 50% overlap each strip should be placed at a distance from each other that it overlaps by a quarter of the width of each strip:

xiii/ Finally trim the bottom of each strip to the desired length using a sharp knife

Note It may not be possible to acheive the desired overlap - this will depend on the width of your top track.
