CONDITIONS FOR LAYING
Parquet can be laid on cement screed on panels with wooden base, or over existing floors on joists. The screed, which must have at least a thickness of 40 mm, is made with cements normal or quick. The drying time of normal cements, vary from 4 to 7 months or more, depending on the products, and environmental conditions. The drying time of cement is more rapid, ranging between 3 and 7 days: in this case, the verification of moisture must always be carried out through a carbide hygrometer. According to law regulations, it is mandatory to apply sheets of polyethylene Rolled along the walls, in order to create delivering excellent vapor barrier. If the flooring is laid over existing flooring on the other hand, it is important to verify that they are in good condition, perfectly washed and degreased, sanded in the case of ceramic or marble, grouted in the case of an old wooden floors. For the carpet or linoleum, after the removal, it is recommended to remove any residual adhesive with a light sanding.
Storage should take place in a dry environment away from moisture and should not be subjected to canned water vapor. Temperature should not be lower than 0 ° but should not exceed 35 °. Air humidity between 45% and 60%. Open the packages only at the time of installation.
The installation must be performed by professional installers or qualified personnel. All fixtures must be fitted and operational, the building works completed, the electrical and plumbing perfectly active. The ambient temperature must not be below 10 ° C and relative humidity between 45% and 60%. Even the laying and polishing of other neighboring floors, ceramic or other material, should be already occurred, as well as finishing and painting of the ceilings, the preparation of the walls. Before installing, check that the moisture of the substrate does not exceed 2% of cementitious screeds for normal or quick drying, l 'for heated screeds 1.7% and 0.5% for anhydrite screeds (if the installation is stuck firstly hone the anhydrite screed and then apply the primer). The humidity control must be carried out using a carbide hygrometer (which ensures greater reliability) immediately before application (reference standard UNI 10329). Also verify that the mounting surface is clean of anything that can act as a release agent (dust, debris yard, shaved bodies, etc.).
Glued installation is recommended for the installation of our traditional solid up to 16mm thick including the line of prefinished solid and Forgings for prefinished 2-layer of normal and average size of the Classic, Maxi, Super, Grand and Gold Listo-Floor and the lines of Prestige120 Elegant and Master-Floor. This is suitable for screeds with underfloor heating or cooling because neither maximizes heat transfer (minimum heat dispersion) without due gluing, air bubbles between the screed and the flooring. With the help of a spatula special triangular tooth, laying on the floor will be laid a suitable adhesive such as two-component polyurethane glue or silane, etc. This material, worked several times with large semicircular movements creates so-called lines of adhesive, will allow a good contact, at least equal to 70%, between the adhesive and the support. It is very important that the glue is uniformly spread; the excess or deficiency of the latter may cause incorrect laying parquet or cause defects in applications.
A floating laid parquet consists of a single wooden surface just lying on the floor laying. Made with pre-finished in 2 or 3 layers of interlocking fitted, glued together with white glue and medium sized to large from our lines Classic, Big Old, Collection, Prestige 150 and 200 and I-Floor Master planking. Between the floor and the floors are interposed a vapor barrier and an extra layer that can have various functions, first of all the sound proofing. In the case of heating or cooling floor, you should choose a sheath or a mattress that is suitable for the transmission of heat.
NAILING OR SCREWING INSTALLATION
This type of installation is normally used for multi-elements or solid elements (boards) with interlocking perimeter and thickness of 14-15-22 mm. The fixing is implemented with nails or screws of iron stuck obliquely to 45 °, in correspondence of the upper part of the male and up to penetrate the support for at least 20mm. precisely for this reason it is essential to choose the most appropriate support to enable excellent fixing operation.
GEOMETRY OF LAYING
The geometry of the installation is the design that was born from the combination of the individual elements that make up a wood floor. The standard of reference in which are the main and most common setting patterns is the norm UNI EN 13756 - Wood flooring - Terminology. • Pose running or irregular formwork planks of wood have the same width, but length random. • Pose a regular formwork elements, of equal size, are arranged in such a way that the butt joints occur in the same centerline or however in constant position with respect to each plank forming the previous row. • Lay herringbone. Left and right flooring prefinished wood provided in the tables of equal size with 90 ° cut parallel right and left ready for installation in "Herringbone". • Laying plug Hungarian NOBLESSE ® The new and innovative technology experience allows the processing, plug, parquet thickness 10 and 14 mm., Widths 70/90/120mm even higher upon request and lengths from 300 to 600mm or higher. The underlayment is supplied ready for laying plug with cutting angle from 30 ° to 60 °, depending on the needs.
