Installation
The installation of Pyramid Sport Flex Tiles should not begin until the work of all other trades has been completed, especially overhead trades. Areas to receive flooring materials shall be clean, fully enclosed, weather tight, and maintained at a uniform temperature of at least 65 F for 72 hours before, during, and after the installation is completed. The flooring materials and adhesives shall be conditioned in the same manner. Floor surfaces shall be smooth, flat, permanently dry, clean and free of all foreign material such as dust, paint, grease, oils, solvents, curing and hardening compounds, sealers, asphalt, and old adhesive residue. Floor covering shall not be installed over expansion joints. It is essential that moisture tests be taken on all concrete floors regardless of age and grade level. The test shall be in accordance with ASTM F-1869 Standard Test Method for Measuring Moisture Vapour Emission Rate of Concrete Sub floor Using Anhydrous Calcium Chloride. One test should be conducted for every 1000 sq. ft. of flooring and the results not exceed 3 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft. in 24 hours. If the test results exceed the limitations, the installation must not proceed until the problem has been corrected. The flooring shall be dry laid and inspected by the installer, under normal, occupied lighting conditions, to ensure proper colour and fit prior to final adhesive installation.

To cut and trim the sports floor, equip a table saw with a 10" diameter tungsten carbide or diamond-tipped saw blade with 32 teeth or greater.

Adhssives:
As recommended by Pyramid Sport Flex

Important: This adhesive is substrate porosity sensitive. Determine if the substrate is porous or non-porous prior to application of the adhesive and installation of the flooring products and follow the appropriate instructions.

Application: Porous and Non-Porous Substrates:
Application: 1/8" x 18" x 3/32" U-notched trowel.
Coverage - approximately 85 sq. ft. (7.9 m2) per gallon.


Warranty
Limited 5-year wear warranty. For complete details, contact Pyramid Sports Floor.

Maintenance
72 hours after installation is completed, initial maintenance procedures must be implemented in accordance with manufacturer's requirements.

Technical Services
Samples: Submittal samples for verification and approval available upon request from Pyramid, Customer Service. Samples shall be submitted in compliance with the requirements of the Contract Documents. Accepted and approved samples shall constitute the standard materials, which represent materials installed on the project.
