Carpet Install

For Temporary installation

use double sided Tape to secure carpet to ground

Permanent Fixing of carpet

SUB-FLOOR PREPARATION

The subfloor should be dry, sound and level.  If the subfloor requires levelling, use a sand/cement screed.

ACCLIMATISATION

At times of extreme humidity changes it is best to unroll the carpet or roll it loosely and allow it to acclimatise for twenty-four hours before installation in the area in which it is to be laid.

DIRECTION OF LAYING

We recommend that rolls be laid with the ribs running perpendicular to the principle light source. On stairs, the ribs may be run parallel or perpendicular to the step.

ADHESIVE

For permanent bonding, use only rubber/resin-based adhesives: Spirit based adhesives must never be used when installing carpet. Their use voids all manufacturer warranties..

CARPET INSTALLATION

In contract situations FLOR-TEX should always be installed by 100% (all over) direct adhesion to the subfloor using a permanent bond adhesive.

The carpet must never be spot glued.
