1Turn off the breakers supplying electricity to toggle switches and electrical outlets on the wall .The wall is covered with stainless steel. You need to hold a noncontact electrical tester against the toggle switches and electrical outlets after you turn off the breakers. The tester will light and sound an alarm if the electricity is still present at the switches and outlets.

2Remove the screws holding wall plates to toggle switches and electrical outlets. Remove the wall plates from the wall. Leave the toggle switches and electrical outlets connected to the wall.

3Spray a grease-cutting cleaner on the wall. Use a scrub brush or old towels to clean the surface of the wall. Wipe the excess cleaner from the wall with old rags or paper towels.

4Sand the wall with 80-grit sandpaper to remove any ridges or bumps along the wall. The surface of the wall must be flat, so the stainless steel sheets stick to the surface. Sanding the walls also roughens the surface to prepare for better glue adhesion.

5Pull back the push rod located above the handle on a caulk gun. The push rod will lock in place automatically. Insert a 10-ounce tube of silicone adhesive caulk into the gun. Pull the trigger on the caulk gun to secure the tube.

6Remove the tip from the tube of caulk with utility shears. The further back you cut the tip, the larger the opening on the end of the caulk tube. Insert a Phillips screwdriver into the tip. Push the end of the screwdriver through the caulk tube membrane to allow the caulk to flow from the tube.

7Apply a liberal bead of silicone adhesive around the perimeter of the wall. Apply additional silicone between the perimeter lines back and forth along the wall in a zigzag pattern. You need at least one 10-ounce tube of silicone adhesive caulk for every 20 linear feet of stainless steel.

8Hold the stainless steel sheet at an angle where the bottom of the sheet rests against the bottom of the wall. Make sure any cutouts in the stainless steel sheet line up with items permanently installed in the wall, such as toggle switches and electrical outlets.

9Tilt the stainless steel sheet toward the wall until the entire sheet is against the wall. You have some time before the adhesive sets, so you can slide the sheet into position once it is against the wall if it is off a bit.

10Tape the stainless steel sheet into place with several pieces of duct or masking tape until the silicone adhesive caulk sets. Use as much tape as you feel you need to in order to secure the stainless steel sheet to the wall.

11Replace the electrical outlet and toggle switch covers. Turn on the circuit breakers.

12Leave the tape on the stainless steel sheets for at least 24 hours to allow the silicon adhesive caulk to dry. Be aware that cooler temperatures and higher humidity levels could increase drying times. Refer to the directions on your product for precise drying times.
