Before installing you should always assess if the included adhesive (3M command strip) is sufficient, or if the wall or placement of the product requires screws for secure mounting.

3M command strip

How to apply

Clean surface with rubbing alcohol. Do not use household cleaners.

Remove red liners, and press strips firmly onto back of the Wave product.

Remove black liner, and press the Wave product to wall for 30 seconds.

How to remove

Remove the Wave device from the back plate, and twist the backplate carefully sideways until it loosens. Never pull towards you, as this may leave sticky adhesive on the wall.

Specifications of the 3M command strips

Good for humid environments: no

Material: Foam

Weight capacity: 1 pound (0.45kg)

NB! There is a batch of products that include a less robust adhesive.

NB! There are stronger adhesives available on the market, that will provide a much more robust attachment, although they may not provide as easy removal. As mentioned in the business manual; Airthings does not take responsibility for improperly installed Wave devices.


For permanent installations we recommend using a screw to wall-mount. Use a flat-top screw (the backplate hole is 4mm) where the length and plug type is highly dependent on the wall material
