Laying instructions

Laminate laying

Always note before laying the laminate!

Please read the laying instructions first in full! Follow these instructions carefully in order to preserve the full warranty claims. Check the panels for defects under good lighting conditions. Warranty claims cannot be made if the panels have already been processed and installed. Remember that this laminate flooring is not suitable for wet areas such as bathrooms and saunas.

Preparation

  • Store the packages for 48 hours before laying under the same climatic conditions as those for laying.
  • An important requirement for the installation and long value retention of laminate flooring is a room climate of about 20 °C and a relative humidity of 50-70%.
  • The underfloor surface must be absolutely level, dry, clean and capable of load bearing. Unevenness of more than 3 mm over 1 m must be properly levelled.
  • The underfloor surface must be absolutely level, dry, clean and capable of load bearing. Unevenness of more than 3 mm over 1 m must be properly levelled.
  • Carpeting is not a suitable underlay and must therefore be removed before laying!
  • Laminate flooring is laid floating, and must not be glued, nailed or in any other way fixed to the underfloor surface (e.g. by door-stoppers)!
  • It is advisable to sort the panels before laying according to the desired course of the grain and by colour shades.
  • Fit and lay opened packages immediately!

Requirements for laying

Footfall sound underlay, PE film, spacing wedges, wooden block, installation aids, crowbar, saw, hammer (min. 300 g), pencil, folding rule. If required: Clickguard™, White glue D3, joint sealing compound

Laminate laying with the 1clic2go system

  1. Fit the first panel with the tongue towards the wall!
  2. Click the second panel into the first panel at the head face.
  3. Click in further panels up to the end of the row.
  4. Fit the second row of panels, offset from the first row, and click in along the long side.
  5. Fit and click in further panels according to [2].

Laminate laying with the Click system

Three possible types of laying are available according to the relevant application:

  • A Quick laying without bonding.
  • B Laying with Clickguard™. Clickguard™ protects the flooring permanently against the effects of moisture from above. The flooring can be taken up and laid again.
  • C Laying with bonding also provides permanent protection against moisture, although this form of laying is more complex, and the flooring cannot be taken up again and re-laid.

 

  1. Prior to laying on mineral underfloor surfaces, a suitable moisture barrier film (PE film) must be laid to protect against moisture. Overlap the strips by 20 cm and fix with adhesive tape. PE film must not be laid on wooden underfloor surfaces.
  2. Use a PE foam film or other suitable underlay for footfall sound insulation. Lay the strips in the same direction as the panels.
  3. If the walls are not straight and true, match the course of the wall to the first row of panels and saw the panels accordingly. Also measure the room depth before laying. If the last row of panels would have a width of less than 5 cm, you must divide the available remaining dimension equally between the first and last row of panels, so that both rows are cut to the same panel width. Maintain a 12-15 mm edge distance from the wall, heating pipes, pillars, door-stoppers etc., with the aid of spacing wedges. For laying surfaces with a length or width of over 8 m, expansion joints are required (min. 2 cm width). Also take this into account when laying flooring over the whole room. Here the surfaces must be interrupted in the door frame area. Movement joints can be properly covered with corresponding profiles. Recommendation: Lay the panels in the longitudinal direction towards the main light source.
  4. Begin the laying in the left corner of the room. Lay the first panel with the tongue side to the wall and set the edge spacing using spacers. Lay the remaining panels according to the specified order. (see Fig.)
  5. The second row is started with half a panel or the remainder of the 1st row. Insert the long tongue of the panel obliquely at a 30° angle into the lower side of the groove of already laid panels and turn in downwards using slight pressure. When flat, the transverse joints between the panels are closed using the hammer and wooden block. This is particularly easy due to the production with transitional fit. The panels click neatly into each other.
  6. Tip! Use the installation aid (panel section with longitudinal tongue profiling) at the height of the two head joints. This will avoid damage when locking the panels together. If bonding or sealing, apply sufficient white glue of type D3 or Clickguard™ to the upper side of the groove. Remove any excess glue after approx. 10 min. in the dry condition using a plastic spatula. Any other remains should be removed completely with glue remover, a scratch-free pad and clean warm water. Follow the usage instructions if using Clickguard™.
  7. Turn the last panel in the row by 180° for cutting to size, position with the décor side upwards next to the already fitted row (groove to groove) and wall side. Take the edge spacing into account at the front face. Mark the panel length and saw to size. To avoid edge splinters, the décor side must be facing downwards if using electric jig or circular saws. Otherwise cut from the upper side of the panel.
  8. Fit the last panel in the row using the crowbar. From the third row, continuous laying as shown in the illustration. Begin every new row with the offcut (min. 20 cm length) of the preceding row. The transverse joint offset from one row of panels to the next should be at least 40 cm.
  9. Fit the last row of panels carefully. The head joints of the last row in the case of narrow panel width are connected together with the narrow side of the wooden block. Remove the spacing wedges after laying.
  10. 1For heating pipes, holes must be cut out which are 3 cm larger than the pipe diameter. Cut out a V-shaped “fitting piece”, apply adhesive, fit and fix in place using a wedge until the glue hardens. Then fit radiator rosettes to cover the holes. Shorten wooden door frames to allow a panel with footfall sound insulation to fit underneath, so that the laminate flooring can also expand here without hindrance in the event of climate fluctuations.
  11. For the perfect finish, attach the skirting clips to the wall at a spacing of 40-50 cm and fit the skirting rails after cutting to size.
