Learn how to install a PA-220 firewall on a wall using
the provided wall-mount kit.
Install a PA-220 firewall on a drywall or
plywood wall using the wall-mount kit as describe in the following
If the four rubber pads are installed on the bottom
of the firewall, remove them.
Mark three locations on the wall that line up with the
wall mount holes on the bottom of the firewall.
To ensure the wall mount screws line
up with the firewall mount holes, use the PA-220 Quick Start Guide
that ships with the firewall as a template. If you do not have a
copy of the Quick Start, download and print it. When printing, select
landscape and actual size in the print options to ensure the screw
hole markers line up correctly.
there are no building services (water, gas, or wiring) behind the
wall where you intend to install the firewall.
Use a #1 Phillips-head screwdriver to install the appropriate
screws into each of the three marked locations:
—Press a drywall anchor slightly
into the center of a template mark. Then use your screwdriver to
apply pressure while turning the anchor clockwise until the surface
of the anchor is flush with the wall. After the drywall anchor is
secure, install a 1.25” anchor screw into the anchor until the bottom
of the screw head protrudes 1/4” (.6cm) from the wall. Repeat this
step for the other two screw locations unless either is located
over wood, in which case, use a .75” wood screw instead of a drywall
anchor and screw.
—Use your screwdriver to insert a .75”
wood screw into the center of each template mark that is located
over wood until the bottom of the screw heads protrude 1/4” (.6cm)
from the wall.
Align the three holes on the bottom of the firewall with
the three screws on the wall and hang the firewall on the screws.
Make sure the firewall is securely connected to each of the three
screws before you let go.
Install the power adapter in the power adapter wall-mount
bracket using the Velcro strap and cable tie. Make sure to align
the cable tie with the notches in the bracket to prevent the power
cord from falling out.
After you secure the power adapter to the bracket, mount
the bracket next to the firewall using wood or drywall screws as
appropriate. You can install an optional second power adapter next
to the first power adapter.
second power adapter through a different circuit breaker to provide
power redundancy and allow for electrical circuit maintenance.
