Geometrik: Easy to install sports flooring!

Geometrik offers a wide range of sports flooring solutions to meet each space’s specific requirements. By choosing the most appropriate sports flooring and with the proper preparation work, installing these floors is extremely simple.

 

7 Tips for perfect application results

  1. Before installing any sports flooring, ensure the base is completely dry, clean and free from deformations;
  2. For roll sports flooring, after unrolling, the flooring needs a resting time of at least 24 hours to allow it to flatten out and acclimatise to the room temperature;
  3. Planning is essential. Thoroughly measure the space before installation so the flooring cuts and adjustments are accurate;
  4. Estimated glue consumption is approximately 1 kg per m2 of flooring when installing with glue;
  5. If an underfloor heating system is available, switch it off 24 hours before installing the flooring and wait 7 days before turning it on again;
  6. When using bi-component glue, the mixture lifespan is between 20 to 25 minutes. Mix the glue in small quantities while installing the floor, using a suitable mixer;
  7. Flooring should be installed at room temperatures between 15 o C and 25 o C, which should never drop below 0 o C when the glue is drying.

 

Extra Geometrik tip

To test floor moisture levels before installing the sports flooring, use plastic applied to the whole base to be covered. To ensure full watertightness, close the ends with adhesive tape. The floor will only be ready for sports flooring installation when the plastic is completely dry after 24 hours. Repeat the test until this happens.
