T-NICHE INSTALLATION GUIDE




 

STEP 1

 

Determine the location of the niche between two vertical studs, and mark the 2×4 inches accordingly with the help of a spirit level.

 

Add horizontal blocking pieces to support the top and bottom of the niche.

 



 

STEP 2

 

Fix the niche to the opening using M5×25 pan head tapping screws.

Be careful not to over tighten the screw.

 



 

STEP 3

 

Cut an opening in the backer board to the exact size of the niche, and install it around the niche.




 

STEP 4

 

Apply thin set to the niche and back butter tile with polymer modified thin-set mortar to ensure full contact.


 

(Notes:Please have the top tile/stone cut in 45° by the 2 ends to keep the tile/stone in place to prevent the tile/stone from drop-off)
