WOODEN FLOOR INSTALLATION GUIDELINES 
Principle 1
The subfloor must be dry (anhydrite screed: maximum 0.5% residual moisture, cement screed: maximum 2% residual moisture), level, and firm.

Principle 2

A expansion gap of at least 15 mm must be maintained between the walls and other fixed components to allow the solid floorboards space to expand and contract.

Principle 3

The room should have a healthy indoor climate (also in your own interest). With a relative humidity between 50% and 65% and a temperature around 20°C, you keep the shrinking and swelling of the floorboards within narrow limits.
On this page, you will find detailed instructions for the following three installation methods:


Installation with Clamps
If there is already a screed in place, and adhesive is not desired, solid wood planks can be installed as a floating floor. The FEEL WOOD solid wood plank floor is suitable for this purpose: The planks are held together with stainless steel clamps, eliminating the need for gluing or screwing. FEEL WOOD is the perfect alternative when it comes to quick and easy renovation in older buildings.
Preparation
The subfloor must be dry, level, and firm. Guidelines for residual moisture in cement screed are a maximum of 2%, and in anhydrite screed, a maximum of 0.5%. We recommend installing a moisture barrier (e.g., PE film 200 My) and using roll cork as sound insulation. The height difference of the subfloor should not exceed 9 mm for a 4 m distance and 12 mm for a 10 m distance.
Important 
The installation with clamps is suitable for small room sizes (maximum 4 m width). Maintain a distance of 10 mm from walls, door frames, heating pipes, etc., for every meter of installation width. Regularly check for alignment during installation.
Installation
  • Press the clamps together and lay the chains with a 70 cm distance between them. CAUTION: The clamps' mounting point must face in the direction of installation. Cut the first clamp in half. Use wooden wedges to maintain the necessary distance from the wall.
  • When continuing the installation, slide the planks with the tongue into the groove and lock them in place with a strong blow.
  • Glue the end joints. Apply glue only to the center of the tongue's underside.
  • Cut the last row of planks to fit, leaving a gap of at least 15 mm from the wall. This row can be glued lengthwise.
  • After the glue has dried, remove the wedges and cover the gaps with baseboards.
1. Preparation: The subfloor must be firm, level, and dry. If there is a risk of rising moisture, a moisture barrier (e.g., PE film 200 My) must be installed and extended up the walls. Roll cork can be used for sound insulation.
2. Installation: Press the clamps together and lay the chain with a 70 cm distance between them. Caution: Installation with clamps is suitable for small room sizes (maximum 4 m width). Maintain wall gaps of at least 10 mm per 1 m room width, but not less than 15 mm!

3. Installation: When continuing the installation, slide the planks with the tongue into the groove and lock them in place with a strong blow.

4. Gluing: End joints must be glued. Apply the glue only to the center of the tongue's underside. Caution: Never glue in the longitudinal direction!

5. Wall finishing: Cut the last row of planks to fit, taking into account the wall gap. This last row can be glued lengthwise.

6. Installing baseboard: After the glue has dried, remove the wedges and cover the gaps between the floor and the wall with the baseboard.



Installation with Screws
If there is already a screed in place, and adhesive is not desired, solid wood planks can be installed as a floating floor. The FEEL WOOD solid wood plank floor is suitable for this purpose: The planks are held together with stainless steel clamps, eliminating the need for gluing or screwing. FEEL WOOD is the perfect alternative when it comes to quick and easy renovation in older buildings.
Preparation
First, level any unevenness on the floor. We recommend installing a moisture barrier (e.g., PE film 200 My). For the substructure, use dried support beams, preferably 5 x 8 cm in size. Lay the support beams on top of sound insulation strips (e.g., coconut fiber) in a floating manner. The proper distance between the support beams depends on the wood type and thickness of the floor but should not exceed 40 cm. Do not butt the support beams; instead, place them side by side with a 20 cm overlap. Fill the space between the support beams with insulation material or standard insulation (e.g., cellulose).
Important
Regularly check for alignment during installation.
Recommendation
You can find suitable screws (to avoid unpleasant side effects like "creaking") in the FEEL WOOD accessories program.
Installation
  • Secure the distance of the first row of planks from the wall (minimum 15 mm) with wedges, which will be removed after installation.
  • The first row of planks should have the groove facing the wall. Align it with the reference line and screw it down onto the support beams from above.
  • The following rows of planks will be hidden by the tongue and groove joints and should be screwed down with special floorboard screws. Pre-drilling is recommended.
  • Fit the planks together using a tapping block and secure them by pressing them down during screwing.
  • The last row of planks should also be screwed down from above..
1. Preparation: The subfloor must be firm, level, and dry. If there is a risk of rising moisture, a moisture barrier (e.g., PE film 200 My) must be installed and extended up the walls. 
2. Substructure 1: Installation on screw-resistant panels, such as OSB panels. Maintain wall gaps of at least 15 mm. Align the first row of planks with the groove facing the wall and screw it down from above onto the panel.
3. Screwing: The following rows of planks should be screwed down with special floorboard screws, hidden by the tongue and groove joints. The last row of planks should be screwed down from above, just like the first row.
4. Substructure 2: Another option is to install on dried support beams that are laid in a floating manner on sound insulation strips (e.g., coconut fiber) with a maximum distance of 40 cm between them.
5. Substructure/Screwing: Fill the space between the support beams with insulation material or standard insulation (e.g., cellulose). Screw the planks onto the support beams using special floorboard screws through the tongue.
6. Screwing: Fit the planks together using a tapping block and secure them by pressing them down during screwing. The last row of planks should be screwed down from above, just like the first row.


Installation with Adhesive
Preparation
The subfloor must be dry, level, and firm. Guidelines for residual moisture in cement screed are a maximum of 2%, and in anhydrite screed, a maximum of 0.5%. The height difference of the subfloor should not exceed 9 mm for a 4 m distance and 12 mm for a 10 m distance. If necessary, the subfloor should be filled and leveled.
Important
Maintain an expansion gap of at least 15 mm between the floorboards and walls, door frames, heating pipes, etc.
Caution
The adhesive used must be approved by the manufacturer for the installation of solid wood planks! For further information, consult your specialized dealer or visit www.feelwood.at.
Installation
  • Apply adhesive to the subfloor according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Lay the first row of planks in the adhesive bed, ensuring sufficient distance from the walls (at least 15 mm) using wedges.
  • Make sure that the plank is fully embedded in the adhesive bed. If necessary, weigh down the plank (e.g., with sandbags).
  • After installation, remove the wedges and attach the baseboard.
1. Preparation/Substructure: The subfloor must be firm, level, and dry. Apply a primer recommended by the manufacturer to the subfloor to enhance the surface and act as a moisture barrier.
2. Installation: Before permanently gluing the floorboards, it is recommended to first lay them loosely to achieve the desired sorting pattern and overall appearance.
3. Adhesive Application/Installation: Apply the adhesive using the appropriate trowel, following the manufacturer's instructions. Lay the first row of planks in the adhesive bed, maintaining a minimum of 15 mm distance from the walls.
4. Adhesive Application/Installation: Insert the subsequent planks into the tongue and groove connection, ensuring that the plank is fully embedded in the adhesive bed.

5. Adhesive Application/Installation: CAUTION: Maintain a distance of at least 15 mm from all fixed components (including door frames, heating pipes, etc.). If necessary, weigh down the planks (e.g., with sandbags or similar).
6. Installing Baseboard: After installation, remove the wedges and cover the gaps between the floor and the wall with a baseboard.
