23. Product Suitability
23.1. Laminate wooden flooring is naturally hygroscopic and is therefore sensitive to moisture or humidity changes. Any exposure to inappropriate levels of sub floor or atmospheric moisture, humidity or temperature can result in the Products moving by expanding or contracting resulting in cupping boards, lifting of the boards, gapping between boards, discoloration etc. Proper Acclimatization and installation procedures as per manufacturer guidelines must be followed for all products before installation.
23.2. Any effects that are a result of inappropriate levels of, or fluctuations in the levels of moisture, humidity or temperature are not a result of a manufacturing defect and therefore not covered by warranty.
23.3. British standards B.S 8201: 1987 / B.S. 5325: 2001 / B.S. 8204 -1: 2003 & 8203: 2001 give guidelines in relation to suitable sub floor moisture levels, in relation to wooden and mineral based floor sub floors, and sub floor moisture/humidity checking procedures. If in doubt as to the suitability of the sub floor this should be checked by a professional prior to installing the Products as original written documentation confirming the sub floor moisture suitability and moisture levels recorded prior to installation of the Product will be requested prior to assessing any claim.
23.4. Laminate flooring is hygroscopic, meaning that it is susceptible to reaction to moisture levels in the atmosphere. It is necessary therefore to ensure that flooring is installed in a stable environment. We recommend the boards are stored and laid in a relative humidity of between 45%-65% and a room temperature of between 18°C and 20°C.
23.5. All of our Laminate products are not suitable for wet rooms, bathrooms, kitchens, utility rooms, saunas or any rooms in which high levels of moisture are contained.
23.6. It is imperative that the fitting instructions for all products are carefully read before commencing any installation. If you are unsure about the suitability of any products please confirm their suitability with a qualified installer before purchasing or fitting.
23.7. It is extremely important that you check each and every panel or board for obvious defects prior to installation being carried out! Claims cannot be accepted for obvious panel defects which are easily noticeable before fitting. In particular this refers to the following, but is not strictly limited to, boards with excess paint on bevelled edges, chipped, cracked or scratched surfaces, missing paint, damages edges, damaged tongues, grooves or click edges, missing or uneven portions of lacquer, oil or laminated surfaces or portions other of the board, discolouration, warped or cracked boards, de-lamination is occurring or water damaged boards.
24.1. Due to our large network of suppliers, the product names which appear on our website may vary from those which our suppliers utilise.
