This installation guide is intended to aid in the installation of G-Floor® Trailer Flooring. In addition to this guide, always follow recommendations supplied on the adhesive or by the adhesive manufacturers. We have provided the following which demonstrates common installation instructions.
The substrate on which the flooring is going to be laid should be smooth, clean and dry. If it is wooden, any seams should be sanded smoothly, evenly and should be level. This will prevent the seam from being visible when the flooring is installed.
The roll of flooring should be acclimated in a temperature controlled area prior to being installed in the trailer.
Unroll material in trailer - Make sure it is laid in straight and trim off any
Trim to fit the layout of the floor - Carefully remove any excess material to fit the angles of the floor in the trailer so that it lays
Lift material on one side lengthwise (from side to side, not front to back) and fold it in half back on itself- Expose the substrate so adhesive can be
Apply adhesive to the uncovered half of the trailer floor- Use the appropriate kind of adhesive for the substrate with which you are working for best Trailer flooring should not be free floating, as it will result in rippling or even creases in the material, as well as expansion and contraction of the material due to changes in temperature.
Carefully roll the floor back onto the adhesive covered part of the trailer floor - do not flop material back in place! -The spunbound backing helps the adhesive bond the flooring more securely to the substrate, but when set back into place haphazardly, it could lead to air trapped under the flooring, resulting in more work during the remaining steps of the installation
Using a hundred pound roller, work any air pockets out and ensure the adhesive is evenly distributed - Work from the center of the floor out to the edge near the wall. This helps push out any trapped air and evenly spread out the adhesive under the
Repeat the above steps for the remaining half of the floor
Roll the entire floor once both sides are done to finish - Again, work from the center to the edges.
Give the adhesive plenty of time to cure-Allow the adhesive to fully cure over the course of 24 hours (depending on the local humidity).
Install trim pieces along the flooring edges to give your new floor a finished look.
