This system is designed for accurately cut 'tongue and groove' boards (min: 3x3mm) with a minimum board size of 300x50x12mm and a maximum board thickness of 28mm.

Ensure floor is clean and flat (a flat sub-floor means deviations of less than 2mm over 2.5m).  Simply unroll on to a prepared sub-floor with the precut slots perpendicular to the length of the wood.  Place together edge to edge.  Do not overlap.  To assist laying, apply double-sided tape to the perimeter of the sub-floor and tape the joints between each row.

Position wood boards carefully and firmly and press in to the adhesive until they lay taut to the previous row. The wood boards can then be positioned using a hammer and an impact block. Continue until the floor area is covered.
