Please inspect the planks in daylight for any visible faults or damage. Also check if the subfloor and site conditions are in accordance with the specifications described within these instructions. WISE can be installed in all domestic areas and in most commercial areas, except in saunas and permanent wet areas. It is possible to use WISE in other areas like bathrooms, or areas where spillages frequently occur since it will not swell when exposed to water. However, in order to prevent the water to penetrate under the installed floor (which can create conditions for growing of fungus, mold or smell), a polyurethane sealant must be applied on expansion joints Amorim floors are suitable for indoor use only. WISE can be installed on top of most hard surfaces such as resilient floor coverings and ceramic tiles which are sufficiently fixed, completely levelled and have no loose areas. Soft subfloors such as carpets and similar must be removed. For WISE installation no underlay is required. Old resilient floor coverings (like pvc, linoleum, cork…) must be glued without loose areas.
Transport, storage and acclimatization
Transport and store the cartons horizontally. Packed tiles should be acclimatized at the job site in a dry, well-ventilated area for a minimum of 24 hours so that flooring may acclimate. Remove tiles from packages just before starting the installation. During storage and installation, maintain temperature and relative humidity to a level consistent with the conditions which will prevail when the building is occupied. In most cases, this means maintaining a temperature range from 18ºC to 28ºC (65ºF to 82ºF) and relative humidity range from 35% to 65%. In order to reach this climate, use heating or air conditioning in the appropriate duration of time before starting the installation. Amorim shade variation is an inherent and attractive characteristic. To achieve the most pleasant blend of shades, shuffle the planks before installation.
High resistance Technology finishing (HRT) provides a natural and flexible surface with a superior wear resistance. HRT is micro scratch resistant, prevents color shading and provides a warm and pleasant feeling on touch. HRT is produced with environmentally sustainable materials.
