Adhesive Fastening for Nixalite® Strips
Nixalite recommends using the supplied mechanical mounting hardware wherever possible.
Consider Adhesive Fastening ONLY IF...
the surface conditions do not allow the use of the supplied mounting hardware. Please remember that adhesives can not be considered permanent. All adhesives, for one reason or another, will eventually deteriorate and fail. Mechanical fasteners (especially the hardware supplied at no charge with the Premium Nixalite) will securely hold the Nixalite strips as long as the installation surface remains in good shape.
We always recommend using the mechanical fasteners supplied with the Nixalite or purchased for our other bird spike models.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN: read, understand and follow the adhesive manufacturer’s printed information regarding:
Adhesive Fastening Options
surface restrictions (some adhesives can melt or damage certain materials)
Nixalite offers two methods of fastening the Nixalite strips with adhesive.
Wire Tie and Adhesive
Glue Clips and Adhesive
The Glue Clips allow for Nixalite strip removal and re-installation without damaging the adhesive bond, the strip or the installation surface. Please follow the Glue Clip & Adhesive Instructions.
This document will help you determine how many Glue Clips are needed, how far apart they are spaced and how to install them. If you have any questions, please Contact Nixalite.
Non-removable direct-to-surface adhesive fastening
This is not recommended, but is possible if necessary. This method fastens the Nixalite strips directly to the surface. The Nixalite can not be removed without damaging the strips. Please follow the Non-removable Adhesive Instructions. Please remember that this IS NOT the recommended method of application. If you have any questions, please Contact Nixalite.
