Inspect all material for correct pattern and color. Each plank/tile should be carefully inspected for any defects or damage prior to installing. Any material installed with visible defect is not the responsibility of the manufacturer. Upon return of the material, with a visible defect, replacement material will be provided, but not labour.
PRIOR TO INSTALLATION
Flooring materials must be allowed to acclimate at room temperature for a minimum of 48 hours prior to installation. HVAC system must be in operation prior to installation. Temperature must be maintained between 13°C to 29°C in the area to be installed.
Avoid areas of direct sunlight through windows/patio doors that could cause color fade or affect the bond to the subfloor.
Material can be installed above, on or below grade. Suspended wood subfloor must have a minimum 18″ well ventilated crawl space below. Suitable moisture barriers must be in place between the ground and suspended floor.
The subfloor must be flat with a maximum 3mm (1/8″) in 305cm (10′) diameter. Level the subfloor where necessary with suitable underlayment or leveling compounds.
INSTALLATION OF RUNWAY LUXURY TILE
– Work from a minimum of 3 cartons when installing to ensure a blend of pattern and color. Measure and lay out chalk lines to square off the room.
– Install parallel to the light source or to the longest wall. Remember to be certain you do not have a piece narrower than 2″ along an opposite wall.
– End joints must be a minimum of 6″ apart. Allow for a minimum of 3/16″ gap at all walls, cabinets, pipes, etc. This will allow for any movement. Ensure the plank/tile joints fall at least 6″ from underlayment joints.
– Use a suitable LVT adhesive (such as Armstrong S-288/S-310).
– In areas subjected to heavy rolling loads, epoxy adhesive (such as Armstrong S-240) should be used.
– Follow the adhesive manufacturer’s instructions, paying close attention to correct trowel notching, open time of the adhesive and amount of adhesive area spread at one time before installing. Measure, score with a sharp utility knife and snap. Continue to install planks, fitting them tightly and precisely in place.
– Once complete, roll in both directions with a 100lb roller.
– Do not allow traffic on the flooring for 24 hours after installation.
– Avoid rolling load traffic for 72 hours after installation.
– Follow the maintenance recommendations for RUNWAY Luxury Tile to ensure proper care and performance.
– Fill all cracks/voids with a suitable Portland cement based floor patch. A rough surface may telegraph through to the finished floor.
– Rough surfaced concrete can be caused with a cementitious underpayment (such as Armstrong S-184/S-194).
– Dusty concrete slabs may be primed with a latex floor primer (such as Armstrong S-185).
The responsibility for warranties and suitability of the concrete floor to receive resilient flooring lies solely with the manufacturer of the concrete/light weight concrete and not with the flooring manufacturer.
* Bear in mind that moisture and PH tests only indicate the levels at the time of testing and cannot predict changes over the long term. *
SUBFLOORS & UNDERLAYMENTS
The suitability of a subfloor or underlayment lies with the flooring mechanic.
WOOD SUBFLOOR / UNDERLAYMENT
A double layer subfloor/underlayment construction is required. Sturd-I-Floor panels also require an underlayment to adhere to. Total combined thickness should be minimum of 1″. This is for structural integrity and to prevent defection i the subfloor, which in turn could cause patch/underlayment/leveler to fail. The wood underlayment must be a minimum of 1/4″ thick – APA – approved plywood or equivalent or poplar/birch plywood all of which has a fully sanded face and is recommended as floor underlayment.
1) APA Plywood – must be suitable for residential flooring (with a fully sanded face).
– Must by structurally sound
– Must be free of any material that could stain vinyl or cause the adhesive bond to fail (inks, paint, solvent, asphalt, etc.)
Install the underlayment panels in accordance with the underlayment manufacturer’s recommendations and instructions. The responsibility for warranties and suitability of the underlayment lies solely with the underlayment manufacturer and not with the manufacturer of RUNWAY. We strongly recommend you contact the underlayment manufacturer to confirm these recommendations/warranties.
– Concrete subfloors (new or existing) must meet ASTM – F710 Preparing Concrete Floors for Resilient Flooring (www.astm.org).
– Concrete slab should have a minimum compress strength of 3500psi and must be protected from ground moisture with a vapor retarder as outlined in ASTM F710.
– The concrete must be clean, dry and smooth. Any foreign substance, which could stain or affect the adhesion bond, must be removed (paint, old adhesive, etc.).
– * Moisture tests must be carried out using insitu probes (RH test) as outlined in ASTM F2170 – test must not exceed 80%. *
– The calcium chloride test indicates the moisture level in the surface of the concrete. It is only considered usable when combined with an RH test.
– The concrete surface must have a PH between 7-9 (ASTM F710). Bond tests must be carried out to ensure the adhesive used is compatible with the concrete slab.
– Lightweight concrete must have a minimum density of 90lbs/cubic ft. – cellular concrete with plastic (wet) densities over 100lbs/cubic ft. are acceptable.
– Curing, hardening and sealing compounds can interfere with the adhesive bond. Any curing compounds with soap, silicone, wax or oil must be removed prior to installing resilient flooring. The suitability of other curing agents with resilient flooring lies with the concrete applicator and is not warranted by the flooring manufacturer.
– Do not install over cushioned flooring.
– Heavy embossing and grout lines must be leveled with a suitable cementitious leveling compound.
– All old adhesive, residue, was or polish must be removed before installing new flooring.
– Existing floor must be fully bonded and in suitable condition to accept flooring adhesive.
General Care & Maintenance
Initial & Regular Maintenance
Sweep or vacuum the floor to remove any dirt or grit. Damp mop the floor with a neutral vinyl floor cleaning solution, such as Armstrong S-485 Commercial Floor Cleaner, mixed as per manufacturer’s instructions. Rinse the floor with clean water to remove all cleaner and soil residue. Do not use excessive amounts of water when cleaning the floor. Avoid the use of harsh chemicals or coarse scrub pads which can damage the floor surface. A ‘no polish’ option is acceptable on RUNWAY however for added protection in higher traffic areas or if a higher gloss is preferred, follow the instructions below.
High Traffic Areas And / Or To Restore Gloss To Floor
Following a thorough cleaning with a neutral floor cleaner and a rinse with clean water, allow the floor to dry completely prior to applying three to five coats of a quality commercial floor polish, such as Armstrong S-480. Be sure to allow the floor to dry completely between polish applications, following the manufacturer’s instructions.
– Avoid exposure to excess direct sunlight, which can cause movement and discoloration in vinyl floors. Blinds/Drapes should be used in these areas.
– Felt floor protectors should be used under furniture legs to help avoid surface scratches and damage. Glide N’ Guard floor protectors should be used under appliances.
– Vacuum/Sweep the floor frequently to ensure grit and dirt are removed. Do not use a vacuum with a beater bar or rotary brush. Non-staining walk-off mats should be used at entryways.
– Do not scrub or wet wash the new floor for at least four days following installation to avoid causing a problem with the bond of the adhesive to the subfloor.
– If moving heavy appliances/equipment with castors over the flooring, be sure hardboard/plywood panels are placed on the floor to prevent surface damage.
The floor must be installed following the recommended installation instructions and be properly maintained. Installation related issues are the responsibility of the Flooring Installer and are not covered by this warranty. Material should be inspected closely prior to installing. Flooring with visible defects should not be installed. Material with a visible defect must be returned within 30 days from the purchase date.
If a legitimate warranty claim is discovered within the warranty period, the manufacturer will supply replacement material of a similar colour, pattern and quality for repair of the defective area of the replacement of the floor, at its option. If the floor was professionally installed, the manufacturer will pay reasonable labour costs for direct repairs or replacement, excluding the cost of subfloor preparations, replacing moldings, moving of furniture, painting, etc. or incidental damages.
The Following Is Covered Under Warranty
– The floor will be free of manufacturing defects for the warranty period.
– The floor will not wear through (the pattern is not visible in a significant area) under normal household / medium commercial use when properly installed and maintained.
