Floor laying rules

Floor laying rules

1. Before installation it`s necessary to keep laminate flooring in horizontal position, in package, during 48 hours at the room temperature (not less than +18°C) and air humidity - not more than 70%.

2. The foundation should be dry, clean and leveled (irregularity should not exceed 3 mm per 1 lineal meter of the floor). The foundation prepared in such a way should be covered by water-vapor barrier film (overlapped) and glued by moisture-resistant tape. Then lay the foundation base coat edge-to-edge.

3. Each floor panel should be checked (before and during the assembly) for any possible damage, defect visible with the naked eye (the difference in colour, size, etc.). In the case of laying floors with the defects the manufacturer will not consider any warranty claims.

4. Laminate flooring form the so-called "floating" floor. Therefore, they should not be glued, nailed or otherwise fastened to the wall or the floor.

5. Between the floor and all perpendicular stationary elements (columns, door sills, pipes, walls, etc.) provide10 mm gaps, the so-called expansion joints, since laminate flooring is expanded or compressed under the influence of variations in temperature and humidity level. For this purpose the distant wedges should be applied during the assembly.

6. If the length of the room is more than 8 m and the width is more than 6 m it is recommended to leave expansion gaps of 2-3 cm in width at the floor proportionally.

7. To achieve optimal visual effect the laminate flooring should be laid lengthwise toward the main light source.

The following tools and materials are required to lay laminate flooring:

• water vapour barrier film

• foundation base coat for use under the "floating" floors

• fine-toothed saw

• pencil, ruler, meter stick

• floor moldings (with mounting clips)
