Better-Bench® Installation Instructions
Position Better-Bench® at desired location and mark mounting holes on substrate. Using a 3/8" masonry bit, drill marked locations completely through substrate. Place fastener sleeves in drilled holes and secure by tightening screws with a hand screwdriver. If blocking or framing is encountered, discard, discard hollow wall anchors and use wood screws (provided).
Remove screws and inject a small amount of adhesive caulk ineach mounting hole. Reposition Better-Bench®, insert fastener screws or wood screw and tighten completely using a hand screwdriver.
Place a continuous bead of adhesive caulk along the top edge of the Better-Bench® at wall surface. Apply stiff mortar to completely fill bench unit, allowing for surface drainage by building mortar up in back corner and screeding even with upper front lip of unit. Pack mortar tightly, allowing the mortar to press through the front holes. Fill any voids in front channel and screed mortar flush with upper and lower lip of channel.
Tile and grout the top and face of the Better-Bench® as desired.
