Upholstery detailed description
Metal spatula, an essential tool to have in your toolbox.
After, your tracks are installed, take a metal spatula when is the time to hang the fabric.
The metal spatula makes you fit the fabric on the walls. It is specially designed for inserting the fabric into the Clean Edge System™ or CES track.
How to use a metal spatula?
Use the quarter circle shape spatula with a rocking motion for fitting the cloth deeply in the track’s groove. Secure it around the perimeter of your panel or wall. Start at the center of each wall and work your way to the right and to the left. But, here comes a really interesting feature of the track. If you feel for some reason, the fabric is at the wrong place, pull it out from the groove then reposition.
We advise our customers to have several metal spatulas, one for each installer.
Note we have a similar spatula but named ergo spatula. The two spatulas have identical blades with beech wood handle. The only difference is one has a straight handle and the other has an ergonomically shaped handle fitting better in our hand. The stainless steel blade will not rust.
Also, remember to use a plastic spatula at the final step of the installation. Actually, time will come when you wish you have one in hand on a job site.
To conclude, we will never stress enough the importance to possess the correct working tools. For best and fast results, get yourself the proper hand tools.
