FLOR by heuga recommends that all carpet tiles be removed from the box and allowed to
acclimatize for 24 hours to room temperature.
The arrows on the back of each carpet tile indicate the direction of the pile. For ranges designed to be laid in a 'monolithic' or 'same direction' style, the tiles should be arranged with the arrows pointing in the same direction. However, other ranges can be installed in a variety of ways to achieve pattern effects (e.g.
quarter turn, brick, ashlars or random - refer to catalogue or packaging to be sure). In these cases, you should always follow the instructions printed on the packaging.
Step 3 - Measurement
Plan your floor installation by drawing a straight line approximately 75cm from the main wall and then draw a line at right angles to this. The lines must be straight and at right angles to each other.
If you have an L-shaped room, you will need to subdivide the room into oblongs and for planning purposes, treat each oblong as a separate unit.
Step 4 - Trial run
It is best to carry out a trial run along both lines to ensure that the planning is correct. Lay the first tile into the right angle formed by the crossing lines, and continue to lay tiles along the main line up to the wall.
