Kronofloor has an ex-works moisture content of appro­ximately 6%. It will expand or contract as it reacts to the atmospheric moisture of its surro­un­dings. As a general guide a 1% change in moisture content will correspond to a 0.3mm per metre dimensional change in the length and width.

More rapid expansion must be expected in the winter period but in environments with higher than average temperatures e.g. Nursing Homes, shrinkage can occur.

These changes can be minimized by careful storage and condi­ti­oning.

Following delivery, boards should be stored in a dry/covered building on a flat floor. Any bands should be cut as soon as practicable after delivery.

Where outside storage cannot be avoided, the boards must be covered with secure weatherproof sheeting to prevent the ingress of moisture to all parts of the board and stacked flat, off the ground, on closely spaced bearers.

Adopt the following general instruc­tions:­-

Condition the boards correctly. Ensure the sub floor is dry. Timber joists should have a moisture content of less than 20% and be level. Shrinkage in joists can lead to distortion of the chipboard decking as they dry.

Plan carefully for all pipes and other services and provide full support on all sides. Kronofloor must be installed with the black ink marking on the top side thus ensuring that the tongue and groove profile is correct. Ensure the joints match together securely. Remember to protect your Kronofloor board before, during and after instal­la­tion.
