How To Install

Method One: Glue MouseMesh with Construction Adhesive

  1. Use a cartridge type construction adhesive available in most DIY shops.
  2. Brush off or wash away any dirt, moss or loose brick and allow to dry.
  3. Push screw cap covers into the screw holes prior to gluing.
  4. Apply a continuous bead of adhesive, about 6mm in diameter, around the back edge of the frame – you will need a glue gun to apply the adhesive – these are readily obtained from DIY shops and stores.
  5. Gentle push the frame into place ensuring that the glue is sufficient to bond to the brick around the whole edge – make sure that you place the MouseMesh the right way up – the text DO NOT BLOCK THIS VENTILATOR should be readable at the bottom left of the MouseMesh when in place.
  6. Leave Mouse Mesh grill undisturbed whilst glue cures – 24 hours will usually give a cure depth of about 1.5mm.

Glue coverage: One standard cartridge of adhesive should be sufficient for approximately:

  • 12 small MouseMesh grills
  • 10 medium MouseMesh grills
  • 8 large MouseMesh grills

Push out screw covers from behind before fixed mouse grills using screws – replace caps after fitting

Method Two: Screwing the MouseMesh into Place

  1. Please note that our ABS range does not come with screws.
  2. Use four brass or stainless steel round head screws approximately gauge 6 by 1.5 inches – but please check head size as manufacturers sizes may vary.
  3. Keep screw cap covers aside in their own poly bag until ready to use. (less chance of becoming lost).
  4. Mark through holes onto brickwork.
  5. Drill out holes with masonry drill.
  6. Push plastic raw plugs into holes flush with surface of walls.
  7. Attach MouseMesh applying reasonable pressure to screws but avoiding over tightening which may damage the grill.
  8. Push screw caps in over screws once fixed.
