IMPORTANT: 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 of panels, which have already been used! If you discover apparent defects in the panels you should stop the installation immediately!
In order to carry out the installation work you will need: 2 mm thick polyethylene film (optional), underlayment foam (optional), spacers, pull-iron, saw, hammer, pencil and straight edge.
This flooring is installed floating. Under no circumstances may panels be glued, nailed or otherwise fixed (e.g. door stopper) to the subfloor. A space of ¼” (6 – 8 mm) should always be left between the panels and the walls or any other fixed elements (such as heating pipes or door frames). Installation should be carried out at a room temperature of at least 18 °C. The temperature difference between the panels and the substrate should not exceed +/- 3 °C.
The sub-floor must be absolutely flat, dry, clean and firm (old fixed carpet must be removed). “High-Stops” or “Depressions” in floor level of more than 3 mm must either be sanded down or filled in with an appropriate filling compound.
The seams of the film should overlap at least 15cm and must be taped. For optional acoustic insulation use underlayments with sound reduction properties (can be provided by Alptahls). It should be laid in the same direction as the panels.
The panels should preferably be installed inline with the main light source. For installation on sub-floor heating please comply with special instructions. You can obtain these from your dealer.
Please comply exactly with the installation instructions. No complaints can be accepted in cases of faulty installation.
Starting at a corner going from left to right (place the tongue side against the wall) while locking the short ends together.
Check the distance to the wall 6 – 8 mm with a spacer and set straight. For accurate cutting of the last panel in the row, rotate this through 180° and, with the pattern side upwards, place beside the already installed row (groove-to-groove). Allow for distance from wall at end of panel. Mark out off cut and saw off.
Always cut from the upper surface of the panel (to avoid damaging the edges), only when using an electric jigsaw or a circular saw should the patterned side be placed facing downwards.
Planks of the remaining of rows interlock with the next by swivelling them downward leaving a slight gap at the short end. Then, using a tapping block gently hammer the plank until the joint click tight.
Start each new row with the leftover piece from the preceding row. Stagger the joints by at least 35 – 40 cm. Please take particular care to ensure that the first three rows are perfectly straight.
Simply clean your Quickstyle Floating floor with a soft broom or a vacuum cleaner. Wipe off foormarks and dirt with a wrung-out (slightly dampened), cloth. Do not use wet clothes. Do not attempt to clean your Quickstyle Floating floor with wax, polish, or scouring materials. Stubborn stains can be removed with spezial stain removers. For regular cleaning and maintenance, we recommend the use of high qualitative cleaning products. Do not use commercial wet jet type mops.
Lay dirt-absorbing mats in high traffic areas, (such as entrance halls and hallways). Fit felt Tipps to the feet of your furniture. For office chairs, use a chair mat to protect the floor. The ideal indoor climate is 19 – 22 °C. Extreme fluctuations in the indoor climate may cause a slight deformation in the panels and minor separations in the joints of floor.
