It is all in the preparation
With correct subfloor preparation, your Designflooring installation will have a perfect finish and long-lasting result to complete your project. As well as fitting within requirements of BS 8203, DTU 53.2, DIN 18365 (Teil C) or other applicable National Standards and Building Codes for the installation of Resilient Flooring, we recommend installing your Designflooring in accordance with the current installation guide.
All formats of Designflooring can be installed onto UFH (underfloor heating), both electric and water borne systems. It is essential to ensure the maximum contact temperature never excees 27 degrees c.
Please refer to the installation guide for each format.
Is your floor dry enough to cover?
It is vital to check for moisture and establish if your subfloor is dry or damp.
- With loose lay and rigid core formats, you can install on floors up to 95% RH (Relative Humidity), allowing the floor to be installed much earlier in the project. They are ideal when the subfloor is still drying out in new build accommodation and community living schemes.
- For gluedown, subfloor moisture readings must be below 75% RH. If readings are higher, a surface applied damp proof membrane may be required.
