 Installation Guide for Maxzara Engineered Wood Flooring Click System

1.Inspection Responsibility 

Check every board carefully before installation for any manufacturing blemishes. Claims regarding product defects cannot be considered after installation. Wood flooring is not suitable for installations in wet rooms such as bathrooms, saunas or in similar rooms.

 

2.Site Conditions

Before installing wood flooring , there are the following points to consider:

Check the moisture content of the screed with a moisture       meter    

* standard moisture content < 2.5%

* with cement screed       < 2.0%

* with an anhydrite screed  < 0.5%

Check the relative humidity (between 40-60%) and temperature (13-20°C) in the      room.

Check the moisture content of the boards (between 8-12%)

• Check the evenness of the substrate and level where needed.

• Check the cleanness of the sub floor

 

3.Installation Preparations

• Before starting the installation, the flooring has to be brought into the room where it will be installed or in a room with the same climate condition. The acclimatization will be carried out as following: in sealed unopened boxes for a time period of at least 7 days.

Determine the installation direction: Wood flooring looks its best when the wood flooring panels are installed parallel to the light coming in through the windows.

• To achieve  a uniform effect, mix floor planks from different packages. Since wood is a natural product, Its structure and colour can vary.

• Determine the number of plank widths: After determining the best layout of the flooring and the starting wall, measure the width of the room and divide it by the width of the solid flooring panels to determine the number of rows and the width of the last row. If width of the last row is determined to be less than 1/3 of the whole plank width, it should be adjusted by cutting the first row lengthwise.    

 

4.Installation

• Lay the moisture-protection layer

• Lay the first parquet plank in the corner of the room. Turn the tongue side of the plank facing the wall. Use spacers to create an expansion joint of 10 mm.

• Hold the next plank at an angle (approx. 30-35°) against the first one and lay it flat on the floor. Repeat this step until the entire first row has been laid. Cut the final plank of the first row to the correct size.

Start the second row with the leftover plank from the first row (must be at least 300mm long). Make sure that the end joints are staggered at least 300mm.

Install reducer profiles as soon as the total distance spanned is greater than 6 m,in the width or in the length.
