Install Guide Lines
Acclimitisation of Material
Material should be removed from packaging and allowed to condition in the room where the material will be installed, at a constant temperature of between 18℃~29℃ for a period minimum of 48 hours prior to the installation. A constant temperature should be maintained for up to 48 hours after the installation.
Sub Floor and Preparation
All sub-floors must be prepared to be permanently dry, smooth, level, sound and free of dust or laitance and installations carried out in accordance with AS 1884-2012
***Decoline Loose Lay should not be installed in fully submersed applications
Arranging the Tiles
Decoline Loose Lay planks and tiles are recommended to be installed in the direction of the arrow shown. This will ensure all grains and patterns run the same way. To ensure random pattern and the most natural look, cartons should be mixed together.
Decoline Loose Lay contains a 0.5mm fibreglass layer which ensures the plank will not be affected by normal fluctuating temperatures in the environment. For this reason, we recommend for the best result Decoline Loose Lay be laid with no gaps between any plank or perimeter surface. However, for the best result we recommend using a suitable amount of glue according to the size of the area. For detailed instructions on where to use the glue, please refer below.
Lay the tiles onto the floor being sure to square up the room being installed in.
Pour the DecoBond on the substrate and spread it evenly with a roller. Wait till the glue gets tacky and lay floor coverings. Please confirm the Decobond Technical Data.
Depress tiles onto the sub floor by hand or by using a light hand roller. Should there be any excess adhesive wipe this clear with a damp cloth.
Planks should be laid in a staggered brick bond pattern leaving no less than 250mm as the smallest piece.
Roll after installation with a heavy roller.
Heavy traffic, wet cleaning and other trades must be delayed for 24 hours after installation of the material or the material protected (core flute, floor protection system)
Clean Up any excess adhesive with a damp cloth whilst the adhesive is still wet. To clean up tools either use water whilst adhesive is still wet or mineral turpentine if the adhesive has dried.
