Acclimate KRONOTEX flooring for at least 48 hours before laying by placing the unopened packages horizontally in the room where the floor will be installed at a temperature of at least 18°C.
Before laying KRONOTEX panels, check them once again to make sure they are undamaged, of the right size and identical in appearance when viewed in daylight at the installation site. If you discover any definite defects, make a note of the information printed on the back and report it to your KRONOTEX dealer. Defective panels that have already been installed are excluded from the warranty.
KRONOTEX flooring is not suitable for high-moisture areas such as bathrooms, toilets, saunas, laundry rooms or anywhere else that elevated moisture levels can be expected, as laminate buckles, swells or deforms if moisture penetrates it.
KRONOTEX flooring is a wood-based material. Because wood is hygroscopic (i.e., it absorbs moisture), the laminate works and moves. It is therefore important to use the “floating floor” method of installation. Slight discrepancies between neighbouring panels can then occur; however, this merely demonstrates the genuineness of this natural material.
Important: before laying, acclimate KRONOTEX laminate in the unopened packages for 48 hours in the same room where the flooring will be installed. To minimise the effects of environmental conditions, use up opened packages before opening any new ones. The panels should be laid at a room temperature of at least 18°C.
The room climate should meet the following conditions before, during and for at least three days after laying:
- Floor temperature: at least 15°C
- Air temperature: at least 18°C
- Rel. humidity: max. 75%
