Installation Methods:

Borders can be applied to any Flat surface (Tiles - Ceramic - Wood - Flat Surfaced Concrete)


Floating System :

Where the borders are directly installed over a layer of poly ethylene with 2 mm thickness while using the PVA-D3 glue on the tiles' tongues. This method is preferred for all the other methods.

Viro Floor Method:

Since our product is composed of natural wood, It could be installed on thin softwood strips of 8 mm thickness with 2 layers of poly ethylene above and under the strips to protect those strips & the borders against humidity. This method is preferred for its good sound resistance plus its humidity resistance.

Glue down method :

Where the borders are directly glued to any flat floor using polymer-based glues made specially to glue wooden floors to any flat surface.
