Installation Solution

One of the core advantages to choosing a ‘do it yourself’ installation is that you’re able to control the quality of work performed. If problems such as these occur, it is important to understand that there are solutions out there. In addition, our twenty-four hour support team is always available to help you with any issues you’re facing. If you’re dealing with a loose wall plug, the solution is fairly simple:

Firstly, it is just a matter of injecting liquid nail into the cracked brick. Liquid nail requires very little pressure in order to set, so there shouldn’t be any need for tight clamping. Also, when you’re applying liquid nail to your bricks, it is important to ensure they are dry and clean from dust.

Secondly, you will need to use the liquid nail on the wall plug, and then insert it into the hole. Once these steps have been completed, it is just a matter of waiting for the liquid nail to set. The setting time can vary, depending on the application. A strong bond will usually be achieved within twenty-four hours, and will continue to strengthen over following three days.

If you have any additional questions or concerns during this fix, please do not hesitate to contact us. EzyFit Roller Shutters can be reached twenty-four hours a day on 1800 633 136.
