Please verify the panels carefully for any possible damage or deviation from standard dimensions before installation.
Make sure they match with the selected decorative design. No complaints can be accepted in the case panels have been used! If you discover apparent defects in the panels, you should stop the installation immediately!
In order to carry out the installation you will need:
Underlayment, pull iron, tapping block, saw, spacers, hammer, pencil and a straight edge. Please make a point of using only approved accessories as they have been designed specifically for working with your floating floor. The panels should not be glued, nailed or otherwise fixed (e.g. door stopper) to the sub-floor.
The sub-floor must be absolutely level, dry, clean and firm (old fixed carpet must be removed). Difference in floor level of more than 1/8”, must either be sanded down or filled with appropriate filling compound.
For acoustic insulation, use approved underlayment. The seams of the underlayment should be laid in the same direction as the panels. The panels should preferably be installed longitudinally to the main light source. For installation on sub-floor heating, please comply with special instructions. You can obtain these from your dealer.
Please comply with the installation instructions. No complaints can be accepted in cases of faulty installation.
With the first row of panels, remove the tongue and place this side against the wall and set straight. For accurate cutting of the last panel in the first row, rotate 180o and, with the pattern side upwards, mark out off cut and saw off. Always saw from the upper surface of the panel (to avoid splintering the edges). Only when using a hand held jigsaw or circular saw should the pattern side be placing downwards.
Connect the panels of the first row on the short side over the entire room length. Planks of the remaining rows interlock with the next plank by swiveling them downward leaving a slight gap at the short end. Then, using a tapping block, gently hammer the plank until the joint clicks tight.
If the wall is not straight:
Place the first row against the wall using a spacer and a pencil then transfer the contour of wall to the panels and saw along the markings. Start each new row with the leftover piece from the preceding row. The transverse joints must be offset by at least 10 inches. Please take particular care that the first three rows are perfectly straight.
If you are unable to angle the panels (e.g. under a door frame or low fitted radiator) you have to cut away the locking edge of the lip of the bottom groove by using a wood chisel or a small block plane. Run a bead of glue on the modified tongue and groove. Tap the panels tight together by using a hammer and a push block or pull bar. If necessary, fix with an adhesive tape.
Where there ate heating pipes or room dividers:
First cut the panel to correct length. Then lay the panel beside the actual position, measure the recesses with a ruler and draw in. Now drill and cut the marked sections. Join up the sawn off piece again tightly behind the heating pipe.
If a doorframe has to be shortened:
Lay a panel next to the frame (with the pattern side facing downward). Cut into the doorframe with a backsaw. Then slide the panel under the frame with pattern side upwards.
To finish off:
Measure the exact width of the last panel row. To do this lay a panel on the previous panel row. Then lay a second panel to be measured with the tongue to the wall and use as a straight edge and saw the panel along the markings. Fit the last panel carefully with the aid of the pull-iron.
