Method One: Glue MouseMesh with Construction Adhesive
- Use a cartridge type construction adhesive available in most DIY shops.
- Brush off or wash away any dirt, moss or loose brick and allow to dry.
- Push screw cap covers into the screw holes prior to gluing.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
- Please note that our ABS range does not come with screws.
- 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.
- Keep screw cap covers aside in their own poly bag until ready to use. (less chance of becoming lost).
- Mark through holes onto brickwork.
- Drill out holes with masonry drill.
- Push plastic raw plugs into holes flush with surface of walls.
- Attach MouseMesh applying reasonable pressure to screws but avoiding over tightening which may damage the grill.
- Push screw caps in over screws once fixed.
