INEX>FLOOR is a high strength lightweight flooring substrate with tongue and groove (T&G) edges. It can be used for external or internal applications; as a substrate for most finishes such as tiles, vinyl, carpet or timber.
INEX>FLOOR can be used in conjunction with floor systems to achieve up to BAL-FZ bushfire compliance.
INEX>FLOOR is simplicity itself. A single affordable product for multiple flooring applications.
At either approx. 40kg (19mm) or 34kg (16mm) INEX>FLOOR is lighter weight and easy to handle on site.
INEX>FLOOR should be stored dry, flat and with all edges protected from damage. We recommend storage undercover and raised from the ground.
Wear protective gloves when handling or cutting sheets
INEX>FLOOR can be fixed to timber or steel joists at a maximum of 600mm centres*. Refer to page 7 for loading properties.
Timber framing must be in accordance with AS 1684 – ‘Residential timber-framed construction’.
Steel framing must be in accordance with AS 3623 – ‘Domestic metal framing’.
Ends or edges without the tongue and groove (butt ends) must be supported by a joist.
Ensure framing is level prior to fitting
INEX>FLOOR can be fitted to a square or staggered layout, but must be staggered for tiled or vinyl finishes. Where waterproofing is required:
• Lay rough side up.
• Ensure butt joints are over timber/metal joists and have a 2mm gap and are filled with INEX>BOND.
• Ensure all T & G joints are filled with INEX>BOND.
Ensure all fixings are located:
• 20mm min. from all tongue and grooves;12mm min. from all butt joints
• 50mm min. from all corners
• Max. 200mm centres along joists.
• Run a 6mm bead of INEX>BOND on top of the timber or steel joists below each sheet progressively as they are fixed in place.
Ensure framing and INEX>FLOOR boards are clean and dry prior to fitting.
