Instructions for laying click parquet

What was originally invented in the field of laminate laying is now also used in the real wood sector. Klickparkett is very easy and fast to relocate. The following instructions will show you how to lay click floors and what advantages it has.

No glue and no drying time

The click parquet is held together by a mechanical anchoring. A groove groove takes on the click profile of the next parquet strip and by locking the parquet rows connect stably and without any use of bonds or nailing. The laying is similar to a plug-in system that most people know from their childhood.

Click parquet is normally laid floating without fixing on the ground. The floor needs to be swept clean and of course dry. Then the laying can be started immediately and the click parquet can be walked on and loaded immediately after completion. A medium-sized living space can be provided with click parquet within a few hours and the furniture cleared out in the morning will be back the same evening.

Parallel laying associations and underground

Klickparkett is a ready-made parquet, which is available in both solid wood and as a multi-layer product. More common are multi-layer products with usable areas of conifers, beech or ash. Some massive parquets do not exist as a click parquet, as the type of installation does not allow. Panel parquets with geometric patterns are just as much a part of it as herringbone parquet and wickerwork bandages. All parallel laying associations such as ship floor parquet are also available in click parquet finishes.

Depending on the location of the installation and the existing substrate, it may be necessary to lay a footfall sound insulation under the click parquet. Especially in apartments in multi-family houses, the click floor, which is provided with a protective foil on bare screed, can produce loud appearance noises when entering. Cork boards form a good impact sound insulation and its more suitable than Styrofoam, which can "sweat" and thereby moisture is created.

Step-by-Step Guide

  • Click parquet (calculate approx. Ten percent waste)
  • Plastic film
  • Possibly sound insulation
  • baseboards
  • nails
  • hammer
  • bat
  • Spacer / wedges
  • crowbar
  • jigsaw
  • Folding rule or tape measure
  • vacuum cleaner

1. Prepare a job

Set up your sawing, preferably with a pad for the individual Klickparkett bars.

2. Plastic film and sound insulation

Lay the polyethylene film evenly and overlapping. Let the ends of the film stand ten centimeters toward the walls.

3. Laying the first track

Start in one corner of the room and think of the spacers to the walls. Lay the individual parquet strips bump to joint without joints.

4. Roughing the end piece

Measure the necessary length for the last piece of parquet in the row, cut it to size and insert it (again use spacers of 5 to 15 millimeters).

5. Engage row by row

Begin on the side of the sawed parquet piece by inserting a complete parquet sheet to achieve the desired offset. By lowering the click parquet while pushing it gently, the profile snaps into the click groove.

6. Slight correction blows

Usually the click parquet is immediately in the right position and there are no joints. For light joints, gently tap hammer and beater until slits have disappeared.

7. Insert spacers in each direction

Keep a distance of at least ten millimeters from any wall that you can secure with spacers. The last row sometimes needs a slightly larger opening to fit in the click parquet.

8. Final fixation

When laying the last row of click-boards you have to make the slats at an angle and let them "fall" into position. The last fixation can be done with the pull bar.

Tips & Tricks

Please note the possible increase of the floor before installing a click parquet and any necessary impact sound insulation. It can lead to doors having to be shortened at the bottom or some built-in furniture no longer fitting.
