Inspection: Prior to installation, inspect planks in daylight for visible faults/damage • check if subfloor/site conditions comply with the specifications described in these instructions • if you are not satisfied do not install, and contact your supplier.
Tools and materials required: Electric saw • spacers • pencil • set square • PE film • adhesive tape.
Before laying: Measure the room at right angle to the direction of the planks • planks in the final row should be at least 5 cm wide • for this purpose, planks in the first row can be cut to smaller size • shuffle planks in order to obtain a pleasant blend of shades • lay planks preferably following the direction of the main source of light • we recommend laying on wooden floors crossways to the existing floorboard • planks must not be nailed or screwed to the subfloor • skirting boards must not be fixed in a way which restricts the movement of the floor.
Expansion gaps: provide 10 mm (3/8”) expansion gaps to the walls and other fixed objects • areas greater than 100 m² (900 sq. ft) or 10 m (30 feet) in either direction, transitions between rooms and asymmetrical areas require extra expansion gaps.
