Touch Panels
Drywall, Stone, &
Wood Applications
TRUFIG can be installed in a variety of finishes and surfaces. This guide will detail the
install of TRUFIG Touch Panels in drywall, stone, and wood applications. Because all
three use similar install procedures, most of the process will remain the same for all three
applications.

What’s in a TRUFIG mounting system?
TRUFIG mounting systems for Touch Panels are available in many different
configurations. Medium Size, Large Size, and X-Large Size are mounting systems
designed to accommodate touch panel devices from a variety of manufacturers.
TRUFIG also makes dedicated mounting systems for iPad and iTouch devices. No
matter what touch panel your using, each system will have a mounting platform and
fascia.
NOTE: touch panel devices come in many sizes with different features and outer dimensions, the mounting systems for
each touch panel therefore can contain a wide array of components depending on the device. These difference will not be
detailed in this section, but will be highlighted in the fascia install portion.

The next four steps of the install process are the same for installing drywall, wood, stone, or any other solid
surface.
(1) Handling & Preparing the Platform for Install
Storing the mounting platform
It’s recommended that all materials are kept in their original packaging until just before installation. Store them off the ground in
a secure, dry area until they are needed. Keep all materials dry and above freezing. At the time of installation and finishing, all
materials must be at a temperature of 55°F (12.8°C) or above.
Cutting the panel bracket
The mounting platforms are designed so that the opening can be positioned anywhere within a standard 16” O.C. stud-bay with the exception of the large and XL sizes. However, many installations will require the panel bracket to be cut to size. The
panel is made of 100% pressed gypsum board - it can be cut using the score and snap method outlined below, or using a
circular saw with a fine tooth blade (or table saw).

Step 1- Score
Step 2- Flip & Align
Step 3- Snap
Score the front side of the panel bracket
3-4 times with a utility knife and straight
edge.
Flip the panel bracket over and align the
scored edge with the edge of a hard
worktable.
Strike the overhang to snap and remove
the excess gypsum.
(2) Mounting the Mounting Platform

Step 1- Align
Step 2- Fasten
Step 3- Support
Using 1-5/8” screws, attach one side at
the center line to one stud. Next, make
sure that the panel is properly aligned
and fasten the remaining sides.
Fasten the rest of the panel using at
least three screws in each stud depending on the size of the platform.
Place at least one of the provided patch
clips on each of the sides with
unsupported drywall. Attach the patch
clips to the panel bracket using at least
one 1-1/4” drywall screw.

This section will detail the next portion of the install process for drywall applications only including installing
the sanding shield, mudding the panel, sanding the panel, and painting the walls.
(1) Installing the Sanding Shield and Preparing for Mud

2
Step 1- Snap
Step 2- Check
Ensure that the mud dam surface is completely clear of any
debris and then press the sanding shield into the opening
ensuring that the entire perimeter is slightly below the top of
the mud dam - about .010” below. If needed, you can adjust
the height of the sanding shield using the 4 adjustment
screws in the corner of the back bracket.
Prior to proceeding to applying mud to the panel ensure that:
1) the platform is level, 2) the top of the mud dam is level to any
surrounding corner bead, and 3) the panel bracket is not
recessed in relationship to any surrounding drywall.
(2) Mudding the Panel
Below are the steps required in order to achieve a level 5 smooth wall finish on a TRUFIG mounting platform. If a wall with
TRUFIG specified for less than a level 5 finish, it is highly recommended that the specification for that wall be changed to level
5. For more information about the different levels of drywall finishes visit the USG website (http://www.usg.com/documents/
construction-handbook/chapter5.pdf)

Step 1- Fill
Step 2- Tape
Using quick-set compound, fill all gaps and let fully cure.
Using mesh tape, apply tape around all adjoining surfaces.
This includes areas around the panel bracket and up to the
mud dam as shown in the photo above.

Step 1- Locate & Cut
Select a location for the wall plate
bearing in mind that the wall plate must
located within four feet of a receptacle
and within the recommended distance
of the actual TRUFIG Mounting
Platform - see to right for max
distances with di erent wire gauges.

voltage ring. Note: CAT5 wire will not
provide enough voltage unless multiple
wires are combined together.

Step 2 - Run Wire
Install a standard 1G low voltage ring in
the new opening and run appropriate
sized wiring between the new opening
and the TRUFIG mounting platform.
Use provided phoenix connectors on
both the device and wall plate end.

Step 4 - Lightning Connect
Connect the lightning connector to the iPad (photo 9) then pull the
cord tight so that the cord forms a very tight radius (photo 10). It
may be helpful to form the cord into a tight sweep prior to
connecting to the device. To help hold the cord and connector into
position, route the cord through the holding clip on the back cover
(photo 11)
Optional - Solid Surface Extensions
Use the four provided stand-offs (photo 1 - part B) if additional
magnet adjustment is needed. Typically these are needed for thick
solid surfaces (>3/4”). Remove the magnet assembly from the box
(photo 2). Unscrew the magnet (photo 1 - part A) from the post
(photo 1 - part B). Thread the extension onto the magnet (photo 3 part A to B). Thread the magnet back onto the post and screw the
entire assembly into the back can (photo 3).

Step 5 - Level and Attach
Using the provided adjustment tool, ensure that the magnets are
adjusted to the correct depth. Place the adjustment tool provided
across the corner of the mounting platform and let it rest on the
finished wall surface. The stem part of the tool should touch the
top surface of the magnet. Use a screw driver to adjust the
magnet height if necessary (photo 12). If additional magnet height
is needed, see note to left. Attach the phoenix connectors on the
PCB and wire in the wall together. (photo 13). LED on PCB
should light as shown below if power is connected (photo 15).
Click the fascia into the wall (photo 14). If fascia needs to be
removed, use provided suction cup.
It is recommended to
remove it by attaching on the screen surface next to one of the
corners.

The next section will detail the next portion of the install process for Solid Surface Applications only
including preparing the drywall, preparing the enclosure for mounting, cutting the opening, attaching the
enclosure, and mounting the finished panel on the wall.
(1) Preparing the drywall
Step 1- Mud & Tape
Many codes specify that all drywall joints must be sealed and taped
even if they are going to be covered with wood or stone. For this
reason, we recommend that the area around the perimeter of the
TRUFIG solid surface mounting platform be filled with quick-setting
mud and then have tape pressed into the seams. NOTE: DO NOT mud
around the box enclosure area on a solid surface platform.
(2) Preparing the back bracket
Step 1 - Remove
In order to complete a solid surface install
the back bracket will need to be removed
from the wall/mounting platform. Remove
the screws that hold the back bracket to the
panel bracket. The back bracket should
now be loose and ready to be fastened to
the solid surface finish material.
(3) Cutting the Fascia Opening
Depending on what type of material the TRUFIG Touch Panel is being mounted into, there are a variety of different methods that
can be used to cut the grille opening. For harder, dense materials, such as stone or glass, the use of a water jet machine is
needed.
For softer materials, such as wood, a CNC table or a router template accessory (sold by TRUFIG) can be used.
Whatever method is used to cut the opening, it is important to note that the opening needs to be cut very precise.
Unlike
surface mount faceplates, TRUFIG facias do NOT cover the opening that is cut into the material - they install flush to the
material surface, therefore leaving zero tolerance for uneven or unclean cuts in the opening.
