Installing floors with traditional joints

New Kährs flooring comes with Woodloc®

Please note that at present we only supply flooring with Woodloc® joints, apart from a few products in the Kährs Supreme range due to the unusually large board size. Therefore, these instructions apply mainly to flooring produced previously.

The packages of flooring contain complete instructions on how to lay your floor. Read these carefully before you start your work.

1.

 

Check that the subfloor is sufficiently flat using a long board. If moisture protection is required, a film has to be laid. Then lay the intermediate flooring layer.

2.

 

Start laying the floor in a left-hand corner, using wedges between the boards and the walls. Remember that the tongue must always face outwards into the room! Use a piece of string to check that the board is straight.

3.

 

Use the rest of the end board for the first row as the first board in the next row. Leave at least 50 cm between the end joints. Then glue the top side of the groove along the long and the short sides.

After that, immediately knock together the boards with a hammer and knocking block. When you reach the end board, you have to pull together the end joints with a jemmy and wedge in place.
