In order to achieve the best possible result, Embelton recommends that you use a professional floating floor layer to install your bamboo floor, especially for complex installations.
Embelton Bamboo floors should be floated as the product has been designed for this purpose, however if direct sticking is preferred or specified, a flexible polyurethane adhesive must be used such as Bostik Ultraset or SIKA. Use of non-flexible adhesives can affect warranty claims.
The subfloor, both timber or concrete must be tested for moisture content and records must be kept by the installer. If the results are above 75% RH (Relative Humidity) or 5% MC (Moisture Content) it is compulsory the subfloor be protected by the use of 200Micron plastic that is taped and run up walls and fixtures to the thickness of the flooring. If no tests are conducted it is mandatory that 200Micron plastic be used.
