1. Check the evenness of the floor of the room. For this purpose use an approx. 2m long straight lath. If the floor deviation is more than 2mm, we suggest that you level the floor. In the case of a cement floor the moisture content of the floor should not be higher than 2 %.
2. Place a piece cut to the right length at the end of each row with the aid of a pulliron. The end also has to be fastened with a spacer. The firm, straight fastening of the first row with spacers is extremely important.
3. Place the first parquet plank as indicated in the figure: work from left to right with the incident light, with the tongue sides toward the wall. Keep at least 10 mm compensation joint to the wall using spikes.
4. Press the next floor plank at an angle of 20° against the first one and lay it down. Continue in the same way along the length of the first row. Cut the last plank in the first row to the correct length and keep the suitable compensation joint. Before installation remove the possible dirt and scrapings. Dirt can cause some tightening and tension in the parquet.
5. Start the second row with the piece remaining at the end of the first row after cutting. Keep in mind the planks end joints must be fitted in bond by at least 500 mm.
6. Fit the first plank of the second row at an angle of 20° against the first row. Keep it mind the edges of both planks shall be contacted in their whole length - you can help by knocking with a wood block. Press it down.
7. Slip a spike of approx. 20° under end of the plank placed in.
8. Fit the next plank's end at an angle of 20° against the plank laid down previously and press down.
9-10. Adjust the plank to its place by knocking with the wood block, remove the spike and press it slightly. Tight connection can be provided by slight knocking with wood block. Continue the installation in this way.
11. When three rows are completed the spikes between the wall and floor shall be checked and adjusted.
12. In case of passing pipes suitable compensation joints shall be maintained. The hole diameters shall be at least 20 mm bigger than the pipe diameter. Glue the cut-out piece back into its place and cover the opening with pipe collars.
13. The door trim can be cut to the accurate length by laying down a piece of parquet waste and the parquet can be slipped under the door.
14. The last row of the parquet shall be cut to the accurate width. The required compensation joint shall be maintained: no the parquet can contact directly with the wall and other fixed building construction. It is recommended to interrupt the parquet surface at the pass in case when there is no door-sill between the rooms and to cover the gap with a covering element.
15. In certain cases - e.g. when plank shall be placed under a door architrave or low radiators - remove the locking edge and put some glue on it as indicated in the figure. You are able to join the next piece in horizontal position by knocking with the wood block. It results in glued joint. Finally remove the distance adjus-ting spikes and place the covering elements and ledges.
In case of floor heating only special conditions are effective. Please ask for information before purchase!
