Factory Tips and Recommendations!

For the installation of Polystyrene Mouldings, we recommend using the following accessories:

  • Important:  For apartments  that do not accept holes in the walls, we suggest using the Santa Luzia Double-Sided Tape instead of the Santa Luzia T Brackets.
  • Installation on other surfaces: It is recommended to use  Santa Luzia Super Adhesive plus Santa Luzia Double-Sided Tape. 

Note: For apartments that do not accept holes in masonry walls, we suggest the use of Santa Luzia Double Sided Tape instead of the Santa Luzia T Bracket.

Is the black 3444 baseboard model the same as the white 444, differing only in color?
And What are the finishing terminals for these models

Helo! Yes are the same footers. But the line has no terminals! But you could paint the white terminals black for example.
