Installation tools: Tapping block, distance spacers, pencil, saw.
Always use 0.2 mm thick PE film overlapped by 30 cm as an underlay when laying your floor over floor screed This should overlap in the 30cm impact area. Extend underlay up all walls. After having installed the skirtings cut underlay at the upper edge of the skirtings.
For sound insulation and to smooth out slight irregularities of the subfloor, unroll 2 mm thick luxury insulation layer. Our range of accessories also offers suitable insulation underlays. Asphalt-bitumen felt is not suitable for sound insulation. Parquet with integrated insulation layer is not suitable for glue-down installation.
Starting in the right-hand corner of the room, align the boards of the first row with the tongue side parallel to the wall, and fix them in place with wall spacers or plastic spacers as you proceed (always keep an expansion gap of 10 - 15 mm (3/8”–1/2”) around perimeter).
The remaining boards of the first row must be clicked in from above at the head ends into the previous boards. Pressure applied briefly to the side joint clicks in the board into the adjacent board. It is important to ensure that the first row is straight and exactly parallel to the wall. Cut the last board of the first row to size, leaving an expansion gap of 1015 mm (3/8”-1/2”) between the board and wall. Fit in the board and lay it flat.
The next row is started with the leftover piece of the first row (short side offset of at least 50 cm). This considerably reduces waste. The rest of the installation is performed boardby- board. First, the boards are angled into the previous row along the long side by applying a small amount of force.
Tap edge gently with tapping block, if necessary.
The board is then lowered in on the short side. Ensure here that the board is flush at the short side with the previously laid board. Pressure applied briefly to the side joint clicks in the board.
Cut to size and fit in the boards of the last row. Leave a gap of 10 to 15 mm between the boards and wall.
If radiator pipes protrude from the floor, drill and saw a cutout into the board (the size of the cutout depends on the radiator pipe and the required expansion space).
