CLIPSO offers a 2-day Certified Installer Training course at our Blauvelt, New York facility several times per year. Beginner through advanced installation training is administered, including many specialty applications. After training is complete, installers are given a Certificate of Completion acknowledging their certification to install CLIPSO products and are added to the CLIPSO network of certified installers.

Yes. You can access the space behind CLIPSO coverings by opening the fabric carefully from the corners. Although this is possible, it is not recommended. The space behind CLIPSO coverings is also accessible when using CLIPSO’s Torsion Spring System.
You may encounter unique environmental circumstances:
“Warm” rooms: Rooms/areas with higher temperatures (fireplaces, kitchen hoods, etc.)
In such instances, please note that using the profile C10 and C11 is recommended. These profiles can withstand higher temperatures and are ideal for these applications.
Humid rooms (bathrooms, spas, swimming pools, etc.): Use care around ventilation systems and provide air access if needed. CLIPSO does not recommend installing its fabrics inside steam rooms or saunas.
Yes. Certain profiles are not affected between -4°F and 158°F.
Note: Take special care when installing product close to a heat source (such as a chimney or range hood). In such instances, the profiles C10 and C11 are recommended for use. These profiles can withstand higher temperatures and are ideal for these applications.
When measuring your wall or ceiling, as a general rule, include a minimum of an additional 6 inches to each edge, for tucking purposes. For instance, if your actual measurements are 10′ by 20′, you should order fabric measuring 11′ by 21′.
We advise you to carefully inspect all delivered goods to ensure no damage occurred during transportation. If any damage is noted on the protective packaging, report it immediately to the delivery person and obtain a written record of the condition.
A written request must be submitted through your sales representative, including clear photos and a detailed description of any issue with your purchase. Please include the information that comes on the label stapled to the packaging, as these reference numbers are very important to process your claim or request. All requests will be examined by our Quality Department and you will hear back from us within 30 days.
Be sure to use clean gloves when handling the fabric;
Open the box with the CLIPSO logo in front of you;
The fabric should not touch the floor or any dusty/dirty areas or surfaces;
Keep the plastic cover on the fabric until it is ready to be installed.
Be sure to keep the roll number from the package’s label, along with your invoice and delivery slip. This information is necessary in the event we need to search for your specific product or reference its warranty.
The first step consists of installing profiles all around the perimeter of the room.
Before starting, check the state of the existing ceiling. If it is damaged, remove the unstable part, to prevent it from falling onto the CLIPSO product during and after the installation.
When installing around light devices, ventilation, etc., think about the height you will need for these elements to be installed at so the fabric doesn’t look “pillowed” after installation.
Then install your profiles using the pre-drilled holes. Be particularly careful when joining two sections along the length of the wall or ceiling, or in the corners (add screw in the corners to strengthen the installation).
Then, install spot holders. Check your electrical connections before stretching the fabric.
The second step involves cleaning and protecting the area. It is recommended to work in a clean environment. Cover the floors and furniture to avoid soiling the fabric. Be sure there are no sharp objects in the area that could damage the coverings.
If the fabric is dirty, rub the surface gently with a clean, damp cloth. The cloth should be dampened with a neutral PH solution. We recommend using CLIPSO Cleaner (ref# O-CCL10E). If there is a fold or wrinkle after installation is complete it may be possible to use a heat gun. You should first test it on a fabric scrap. When using it, do not hold it too close to the fold and be particularly careful near any PVC profiles.
If these problems persist, or you have any other issues, do not hesitate to contact us.
