HOW TO INSTALL

Glorious flooring is designed for glue-less laying.

1 ЎўMeasure the room carefully to determine if it is square, and to calculate the width of the last row. For planks less than 50 mm / 2Ў± in width, re-cutting the first row will be necessary to insure stability (do not include the tongue of a plank in your measurements, as all exposed tongues must be removed from the perimeter of the floor, i.e. the first row of planks). Should you have an irregular wall for the first row, the plank must be cut to t the wall. Please note that any installation requiring the flooring to exceed 8 meters / 27 feet in width or length, will require an expansion or T molding.

2 ЎўWhen preparing to saw a plank (use safety glasses), always insure that the teeth of the saw will be cutting into the decorative surface of the plank. (Ex: using a table saw face laminate side down).

3 ЎўStarting in one corner of the room, the flooring should be installed from left to right, with the groove sides facing out from the walls. Place spacers between the plank and the wall, 1 spacer on the width and one spacer at each end where one plank joins another. (Spacers provide the necessary space required for expansion around the perimeter of the floor. It is especially important to leave at least 8 mm / 5/16Ў± free around the entire floor, including under doorframes). The planks at the end of each row must not be shorter than 300 mm / 12Ў±, to insure stability. If your last plank is shorter than 300 mm / 12Ў±, it is advised to re-cut the first plank in the row. The remainder of the plank from your first row can be used as the first plank of the next row. Stagger the planks by cutting the first plank of every other row in half.

4 ЎўWhen laying the planks for the first row, place the first plank flat and against the spacers. The next plank being laid must be elevated at a slight angle to allow the tongue to slip into the groove of the first plank. Once flat, push and gently tap the planks together until they Ў°clipЎ± in tight.

5 ЎўFor the second and consecutive rows, elevate the plank at a slight angle along its length to allow the tongue to slip into the groove. The next plank should be laid the same way but, with the tongue on the left side of the plank falling just next to the previous plank. Once flat, you can push and gently tap the planks together until they Ў°clipЎ± in tight.

6 ЎўWhen you reach the final row, place a loose panel precisely on the last laid panel. Place another panel on top, but with its edge 8 mm / 5/16Ў± from the wall. Trace a cutting line along the middle panel, and saw it along that line.

7 ЎўLay the panel you cut and ease it into position. Insert spacers between the wall and the last panel laid to be sure there is an 8 mm / 5/16Ў± expansion gap.

8 ЎўTo pass obstacles through the floor covering (pipes, radiator mounts), use a pencil to trace the position for drilling. Find the centre then drill, using a big enough bit to leave 8 mm / 5/16Ў± peripheral play. Cut the strip in two so that the saw mark goes through the centre of the drilled hole, so that the strip can be re-assembled around the pipe. If the obstacle is on the long side of a strip, cut it in a trapezoid shape, otherwise a straight cut would be best.

9 ЎўWhen going from one room to the other make sure to separate the rooms with a transition molding.

The floor is ready for use as soon as it is laid.
