Installing Wall Safes For Your Home
Wall safes – To install the safe first thing we have to do is a hole in the wall with the help of an electric hammer. Once the whole done, put a box around the rebar and give primer latex in the body of the box, then cement grip well in the metal. When the product is dry, we put the box in the hole in the wall, look with some lag screws and strengthen the block with pieces of metal mesh. Fill the hole with cement when it hardens fast and dry, apply a leveling compound. To finish the job, we painted the entire perimeter of the box with acrylic enamel. The model wall safes we will place it will be built into the wall and has a double opening system: electronic and key. We’ll give a smattering of masonry for fit the box and we really consider where to place it.
Step by step to install wall safes. Once we have determined the location of the box, we passed a metal detector to check that no pipes or cables that we may be damaged. Here is a cardboard template with the shape of the box in the wall with a pencil or chalk, mark the area that we will empty. When making the template, we have to measure front of the box and add 10 more cm on each side of the rectangle. Using the hammer and chisel, we began to break the wall on the marked lines. Then we finished emptying the hole with the help of an electric hammer. To perform this task safely, we will protect your eyes with appropriate glasses. When we made the hole, we place a re bar around the box and look with extra-strong putty. Before applying the product, we will need well with your hands. Let take about 10 minutes to dry the putty and give primer latex in the body of the box, so that after the cement grip well on metal. To extend the product, we will use a pallet.
Once the primer has dried, we make the fixing holes in the hole. To make this work, we will use percussion drill in position and drill for concrete 6 mm, which is the diameter having tacos are going to use. Insert the nylon plugs, helping a sledgehammer and put a piece of metal mesh at the base of the hole. The next thing we do is prepare quick-drying cement. We pour the product in a drawer and pour the amount of water that indicates the manufacturer. Then we mix well with the palette. It is convenient to prepare small amounts of dough to prevent drying. Once the mixture, moisten the surface on which we will apply the cement to grip it well and we made a good base of cement, with the help of the palette. we can enter the box in the hole, flush with the wall and matching the holes in the box with the hole. Then we insert the screws with a small screwdriver and an appropriate tip. We cover the front of the box with masking tape to prevent products we use during installation penetrate inside or damage the opening and closing mechanism, and place pieces wire mesh to reinforce the block. Then we fill all the space there is around the box with quick-drying cement.
When the product has hardened, apply a thin layer of leveling compound with a trowel and let dry. Go over well around the perimeter of the box with a sander provided with a sheet of fine grit sandpaper and after removing the dust that may have occurred, we give a fixer background water with the help of the pallet. This product of high penetration, improves paint adhesion and uniform absorption. We wait for the fixer background to dry for 12 hours and apply an acrylic enamel of the same color as the rest of the wall. To perform this task, we will use a foam roller. To finish the job we can only remove the masking tape and prove that the two opening systems, the key and electronic, are working properly. You have seen that way we have built a lockbox on the wall so simple.
