Commercial Flooring Installation Guide

Being thinner and lighter, our LVT flooring products can be installed easier and faster than natural alternatives such as wood and stone. There are also less health and safety complications to worry about.

Our customers also appreciate how flexible our products can be to create unique layouts and designs. To meet even personalised needs, for example inbuilt company logos, we can prepare them offsite for you for quicker installation.

Our products are suitable for underfloor heating; please check our Installation Guide for special notes.

To make our floors look perfect the correct subfloor preparation is vital. It is imperative that it is clean and dry, free from oils and bitumous compounds. The floor must be less than 75% relative humidity.

Acclimatising the planks or tiles before laying will make sure your clients floor looks its best and the chances of post-installation problems are reduced. TheĀ adhesive we recommend depends on the application and location of the installation.

Please refer to ourĀ Installation Guide for preparation methods and details. If you have any questions please contact our Technical Services team.
