surestep® multi-layered homogeneous vinyl flooring must be installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. Sub-floors must be level, smooth, hard, clean and dry before laying commences. Uneven, solid or suspended timber floors may need additional preparation to meet the required standard. Where there is direct to-earth concrete it is essential that an effective damp-proof membrane be incorporated. Prior to installation, surestep® must be allowed to relax for 24 hours at a uniform room temperature of between 18°C and 27°C. All sub-floors must be tested for acceptable moisture content in accordance with SANS 10070 prior to the commencement of installation. Note that excessive moisture in the sub-floor will react adversely with the adhesive during the curing period. The recommended adhesive is FloorworX No. 62 acrylic.

Supply and fix 2.0mm thick x 2.0m wide surestep® R10 multi-layered homogeneous vinyl safety sheeting with PUR Pearl™ surface treatment, manufactured in accordance with EN 649 and laid in FloorworX No. 62 acrylic adhesive which has been spread using a trowel fitted with an A2 notched blade at a rate of between 5.5m2 and 6.5m2 per litre on a previously prepared Class 1 sub-floor in accordance with SANS 10070, using FloorworX Self Leveller when required, including all cutting and waste. The sheeting must be rolled in both directions with an articulated 68kg three-sectional roller immediately after it has been laid into the adhesive. Joins must be butted, grooved and heat welded using the manufacturer’s welding rod, ensuring that the welding rod bonds to more than 70% of the sheet thickness.
