General Information

Uniclic is a revolutionary system for installing laminate floors without using glue. The panels click together using the shape of a tongue and groove. Before you jump in, there is some basic facts that you should know about the Quick Step Uniclic laminate floors.

  • You can walk on the floor during and immediately after installation.
  • With the uniclic panels, you can choose where you want to begin. Think about what will be the easiest way to install the floor. This is GREAT for lefties, who no longer have to struggle through an installation geared to right-handed people.
  • Make sure the panes are mixed sufficiently when you install them. That way you don’t end up with too many identical panels (light or dark) next to each other.
  • Check all panels in daylight before and during installation. Defective panels must never be used.
  • The floor should be preferable be installed parallel to how the light enters the room. The ideal conditions are 59-68 degrees fahrenheit at a relative humidity of 50-60%.

  • Let the planks acclimate to the surroundings for at least 48 hours in their unopened packaging. Make sure the package sits in the middle of the room at normal temperature.
  • Room Humidity can vary with each season, so it is vital that the floor is able to expand and contract. Make sure you leave an expansion joint of a minimum of 5/16″ to 3/8″ on all sides of the floor, around pipes, thresholds, under doors and around any fixed objects.

  • Large rooms mush have expansion joints every 40 feet width-wise and length-wise to the panels. It is recommended to provide an expansion joint between different rooms.
  • Ensure the end joints of the panels in two successive rows are never in line. Always ensure that the joints are staggered by at least 6 inches.
  • It is always recommended to purchase a few extra cartons of flooring. This will come in handy in the future if you happen to damage a couple of pieces, miscalculate the size of the room or miss cut some pieces.
