The laminate planks should be checked thoroughly for material defects before and during installation. Planks with visible defects or damage must not be installed. Assembly should only take place under daylight or with adequate lighting, as otherwise any damage or faulty planks cannot be detected in some circumstances.
The laminate flooring elements must be acclimatized over a period of at least 48 hours at a room temperature of 17–24°C and a relative humidity of 35–60% in the room where they are being installed.
The core board on the laminate flooring is a wood-based material, which, like natural wood, is also subject to swelling or shrinking depending on climate conditions. The installed laminate flooring therefore needs to be kept a suitable distance away from all heavy objects (e.g. kitchens) and fixed components, in other words walls, supports, radiators etc., which is known as the wall clearance or expansion joint. Furthermore, expansion joints must be maintained when a defined installation area is exceeded.
Laminate flooring must not be installed in areas where water can lodge on the floor. Standing water penetrates the HDF core board via the edges and causes permanent damage.
The basic requirement for laying laminate flooring is a firm, clean, dry and even sub-floor.
