1. Preparing the Subfloor: Before starting the installation of Tekwarm XPS Foiled Versatile UFH Boards, ensure that the subfloor is flat and level. If necessary, use a suitable Damp-Proof Membrane (DPM) to prevent moisture from affecting the boards.
2. Timber Base Installation: If you are applying the UFH boards onto a timber base, follow these steps:
- Use Tekwarm mechanical fixings and washers, using five fixings per board.
- The fixings should provide a minimum of 35mm embedment and should be appropriate for the substrate.
3. Concrete Base Installation: For installation on a concrete base, follow these guidelines:
- Lay the Tekwarm XPS Foiled Versatile UFH Boards directly onto the concrete surface.
- Adhere the boards to the concrete using a bed of combed flexible tile adhesive (S1 or equivalent).
- In some cases, additional mechanical fixings may be required depending on the substrate.
4. Finishing the Installation: For most applications, an additional overlay board is not necessary, and the flooring can be laid directly on the upper surface of the Tekwarm XPS Foiled Versatile UFH Boards. However, please consider the following based on the type of flooring:
Wood Flooring and Laminate Products: Apply wood flooring or laminate products using a suitable underlay as per the manufacturer's instructions.
Flooring Grade Tiles: Lay flooring grade tiles on a suitable combed flexible S1 tile adhesive layer.
Other Finishes: Some finishes may require a separating layer of Tekwarm Overlay Board before their installation.
- Ensure that the installation is carried out following the local building codes and regulations.
- It is recommended to consult a professional installer for complex installations or if you are unsure about any aspect of the process.
- Always refer to the manufacturer's guidelines and instructions for the Tekwarm XPS Foiled Versatile UFH Boards during installation.
