Install laminate flooring has never been so easy!

Installation of laminate does not require special training or tools, it’s easy to make yourself.

  1. BEFORE FLOORING
  2. Heat and humidity conditions of the environment and the surface to be floored

Heat and humidity levels of the environment and the surface to be floored should meet suitable heat and relative humidity conditions before, during and after the flooring. (Average temperature of the flooring environment should be min +18 C° and the surface temperature should be min +15 CD. Relative humidity of the flooring environment should be max 75%). Before laying the laminate floor it is really important to keep the laminate in the room where it will be installed at least one day. This is to ensure that the temperature of plank is equal to the temperature of the room.

Surface to be floored

All surface to be floored with laminated parquet should be suitable for technical conditions necessary for flooring.

It should be ensured while examining the surface that the following conditions are satisfied:

  • The dryness of surface,
  • Checking the surface smoothness (Surface fluctuation should not exceed max 2 mm per meter),
  • Strength / bearing capacity of the surface to be treated,
  • Checking the rigidry of the surface,
  • Purity of the surface to be floored (dust, dirt etc).

In addition to the cement finish, any previous coat on the surface such as PVC, linoleum, rubber or wooden surface coats can receive flooring, yet the above-mentioned conditions should again be satisfied for this treatment.

The laminated parquet may be applied to surfaces where water circulated and floor-heated systems are employed. In such a case, please ask for special flooring instructions from your supplier (flat or corrugated kraft paper). Furthermore, for electrical floor-heating systems (surface heat control) in case the floor is fitted into the cement finish of layer (if the heating system is not above the concrete layer), floor can be applied. The surface temperature of the ground should not exceed 28 C°. In case warranty assuring that surface temperature would not exceed 28 C° can be required from the manufacturer, adjustable plate heating system can be allowed for use as the floor surface. Common available electrical floor-heating system running with standard plates cause surface temperatures going much beyond 28 C° in the event of the excessive instantaneous temperature variations. Therefore , they are not appropriate for use as a floor surface.

Essential rules in flooring:

  • PE sheet of 0.2 mm in thickness should be applied across the full area of the surface with an edge tolerance of 20 cm in superposed form for humidity isolation of the surface. Before the parquet is installed the coat should be laid to cover the whole surface in parallel to the long edge of parquet panels to ensure sound, heat and humidity isolation for the surface and eliminate surface burrs (if less than 2mm). While laying the blanket strips adjacently , the edges should be adjoined (no uncovered area left).
  • As laminated parquets are laid on the surface in float system , no screwing , nailing or bonding treatment is necessary.
  • Two short edge joints should be less than min. 300 mm.
  • In the floored area a clearance of 15 mm should be left between the Floor-plus laminated parquet and all fixed sides (wail, central heating tube etc.)
  • Parquet panels should be laid in a max lengths of 10 m and max width of 8 m. Transition profiles should be used in areas exceeding these dimensions.
  • Defected and inappropriate panels should be eliminated before and during the application.

PREPARATION

Check that no defects present on any surface element. Please examine the curve and groove of surface pieces.

Step
2

STARTING INSTALLATION

Start to lay the first row form the left side of the room with both curved sides of the piece facing the wall. Fit distance holders allowing the desired clearance between the wall before starting the flooring work.

Step
3

FIRST ROW

Take the next plate and holding it at an angle, insert the spike into the slot previously installed plate, then lay flat. Set the plate to the end of the series. Hold inclined the piece to be laid and fit into the joint mechanism of the laid piece.

Step
4

End of row

Then land it so that it seats evenly on surface and join all the pieces.

Step
5

Next row

Mark the required lengths on the last piece of the first row (position so that the curves face each other) and cut the projecting part. If the residual part of the flooring piece for the first row is min 200 mm in lengths, then start laying the second row with this piece. The same starting procedure is applied to all other rows namely flooring is started with the residual part of the previous row.
Attention! Edge joints should be implemented in a minimum shift of 200 mm. For products with a factory-curved and / or special pattern (for instance decorative tile), be careful to apply the uniform shift based on the curved side and/ or pattern.
In the case the first row end with the piece smaller than 200 mm it is recommended to cut the first plank to the left side too, so in the end the outside pieces (left and right) end up approximately equal in length.

Step
6

Start of next row

The new series of plates are mounted to each other apart from the previously laid surface.

Step
7

Connection of row

If the remaining from the previous row of the plate longer than 20 cm, start the next row with her. Joints edges of the plates adjacent rows must be at least 20 cm apart.
After the first row is laid, start the second row with the residual part of the first row or a piece adapted to the curved side and / or pattern.
Fit the curve of this piece to the lower projecting lip of the first piece and join all other panels from the narrow sides as explained above until the entire row is finished. So, ail narrow sides of these panels are aligned and joined.

Step
8

Next rows

Now, lift slightly the first panel of the panel section and join it with the first row from the longitudinal side. Until the full row unites with the previous row, repeat this procedure. Meanwhile, ensure that no shift occurs in panels along the narrow edges.

9

Now you can start piece to piece of row-to-row flooring.

Last row

To mark the last piece row, place the last piece to be laid exactly on the previous penultimate row. Wall contour may be included to the coating component at a predefined distance with a residual panel piece (piece width + edge joint width).
