Learn why FLOR is a better choice.
Our ingenious, patentedare what hold the innovative design system of FLOR together. These one-sided, non-toxic adhesives stick to the bottom of each square - sticky side up. The square then adheres to its carpet square neighbor - not to the floor underneath - for sturdy, secure positioning that holds area rugs, runners and wall-to-wall designs in place.
With FLORdots there’s no need for smelly glues, sharp nails or even floor pads. Plus, FLOR’s expertly engineered backing is designed to “hug” the floor underneath, making standard rug and carpet padding obsolete.
Once a rug has been “dotted” it cannot be returned so be sure you are satisfied with your design before final application of the FLORdots to the bottom of the squares.
Clean and smooth floors - Yes. FLOR can be installed virtually in any indoor area that has a clean, hard, dry surface. It can also be installed over smooth, fully-cured (minimum 90 days) concrete floors. Concrete needs to be sealed with a Non-solvent based sealer before installing FLOR. Call our customer care at 866.952.4093 for recommended sealers.
Over floor treatments - No. FLOR should not be installed over carpeting or padding, because it will cause the squares to separate when weight is applied to the surface.
In addition, FLOR should not be installed over floors with hand painted or vintage varnish finish and unfinished waxed floors, because contact with FLOR’s backing could cause damage to the floor underneath.
FLOR is not recommended for outdoor use. As a general rule, FLOR squares should not be totally submerged or soaked in water or mud. Doing so can deteriorate the materials. For more information, call us at 1.866.952.4093.
FLOR squares are assembled in one of two ways:
(1) monolithically, or laying all of the squares in the same direction. There is a directional arrow on the back of each square to guide the correct placement.
Or (2), in a parquet pattern with the squares (and directional arrows) rotated 90 degrees from each other to form a geometric pattern.
FLOR will recommend a square direction specific to your own design, but the final creative decision is always yours.
Area rug, Runner, Wall-to-Wall
Preparing to assemble your FLOR is the same when designing an area rug, a runner or a wall-to-wall floorcovering.
Often it’s necessary to trim squares for your design, specifically with a wall-to-wall floorcoverings where squares align with the wall. Area rugs and runners may require trimming for design customizations.
1).You’ll need a metal, straight edge and a sharp carpet knife, both of which are available in one of our handy.
2). Use the metal edge to guide the knife and score (create a cut groove) the back of the square a few times to get a clean cut.
3). If you’re new to FLOR, watch our cutting FLOR squares video below for step-by-step, live action instruction.
