In this blog, we will show you how to mount your SunDirect Infrared Panel onto a wall. These instructions refer to IC-Plus, GD-Plus, and MD-Plus series. Please note that GD-Plus and MD-Plus series are designed only for wall mounting, so don’t mount them on the ceiling. Also, keep in mind that the kit supplied in the package is designed for the mounting on a solid wall or ceiling. If mounted onto other types of wall or ceiling, you will need appropriate hardware which is not supplied. Please make sure the wall or ceiling is safe to mount. 

 

GETTING READY

You are going to need the following tools: One eight-millimeter drill bit, a pen, a level and one electric or regular screwdriver. You may also need a hammer.

Make sure that your SunDirect mounting kit contains all the required elements: One mounting bracket, six screws, six dowels and six platewashers.

STEP ONE: POSITIONING AND MARKING THE HOLES 

Use the supplied mounting bracket to mark the position of the holes on the wall or ceiling. For vertical wall mounting, the letter “A” cutout will be the top of the mounting bracket. For horizontal wall mounting the letter“B” cutout will be the top of the mounting. Use the level to make sure that the bracket is positioned under the right angle.

STEP TWO: HOLES

Now that you marked the position of the holes, drill holes using a 8mm drill.

STEP THREE: DOWELS

Insert the dowels into the holes. You can use the hammer if necessary; just make sure to be gentle.

STEP FOUR: SCREWS

Fasten the screws into the dowels through the holes on the mounting bracket.

STEP FIVE: MOUNTING 

Mount the panel on the mounting bracket. Aim for the round part of the mounting holes, and then move the panel in the required direction until it is secured.

There you go! The panel is now securely mounted to the wall. You can see how the entire mounting process looks like in the video bellow.
