Before you begin...

  • Make sure you have the hardware positions spaced properly and marked on the surface. To help you in this process, please review the Surface Layout instructions first.
  • When using Adhesive or Glue Clips to fasten the Nixalite, review the Adhesive Procedures.
  • When using Custom Made Forms to install the Nixalite, skip this section and refer directly to the installation documents that were provided with these items. 


Mounting Hardware Instructions:

masonry Masonry Mounting Hardware
  1. Drill a 3/16”(0.63cm) diameter hole, 1” (2.5 cm) deep
  2. Insert toggle anchors into the drilled holes.
    Tip: add a silicone sealer/adhesive in the drilled hole before inserting the anchor. This helps ensure a water tight seal between the surface and the anchor.
  3. Insert the screw through the eyelet of the mounting clip.
  4. Seat with Phillips screwdriver or driver bit.

  1. If necessary, make a small pilot hole for the sheet metal screws using a drill or punch.
  2. Insert the screw through the eyelet of the clip and through the washer.
    Tip: Assemble the hardware in advance - save time on site.
    Tip: apply a silicone sealer/adhesive to each hardware location. This helps ensure a water tight seal.
  3. Nixalite’s sheet metal screws are Phillips drive. Make sure you have the appropriate screwdriver or driver bit before starting the installation.

  1. Drill a 5/32” (3.9 mm) hole, ½” (1.3cm) deep.
  2. Insert the drive screw through the eyelet of the clip and through the washer. This can be done in advance of the installation to save time on-site. 
    Tip: add a silicone sealer/adhesive in the drilled hole before installing the Drive Screws. This helps ensure a water tight seal.
  3. Seat the assembled hardware with a hammer. The Drive Screw is an interference fit – it must be driven flush to the surface with adequate force.
