Installation over Heated Subfloors

Unlike many other floorcoverings, Quick-Step Timber can be installed over heated concrete subfloors*, providing the following three conditions are met:

  1. Use 200uM Builders plastic sheeting under the foam underlay prior to installation as per instructions for Installation over Moist Subfloors.
  2. Ensure that your heating system is run at anticipated operating levels for a period of no less than 2 weeks. The heating system should then be turned off and the subfloor left to cool for three days prior to commencing installation of flooring.
  3. The maximum surface temperature of the concrete slab should not exceed 28 degrees Celcius at all times.

*It should be noted that, Premium Floors P/L does not recommend the installation of ReadyFlor Spotted Gum or Blackbutt in 1 Strip, 2 Strip or 3 Strip, over heated concrete subfloors.


TIP: For best results, installation should be carried out with the heating system turned off. 24 hours after completion of the installation, the heating system should be turned on and the temperature increased gradually over a 7 day period until the normal operating temperature has been reached.
