Frequently Asked Questions
No, Kaindl flooring is not suitable for full-surface gluing to the base surface. Full-surface gluing will impede the natural swelling and shrinking behaviour of the flooring.
Kaindl floors are suitable for use with hot-water underfloor heating systems. However, current knowledge suggests that Kaindl flooring should not be installed in conjunction with electric underfloor heating. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org and request the current information leaflet on underfloor heating.
Carpets must be removed from the base surface before installing Kaindl laminate flooring. Carpets can cause excessive movement in tongue and groove sections. Subsequent material fatigue can result in a difference in height and gaps in the joint.
Any unevenness greater than 3 mm must be ground off or filled.
Applying a vapour barrier to a mineral base surface is mandatory. Omitting the vapour barrier will result in the exchange of moisture with the base surface and can, after the floor has been used for some time, cause the edges to swell and gaps to form due to damage to the tongue and groove connections.
Wood expands ? a 15 mm gap should always be left between panels and walls or other solid elements (heating pipes, pillars). Transition, closing or end profiles should be used between individual rooms.
Expansion joints are required in rooms larger than 10 metres in the longitudinal direction of the planks and wider than 8 metres in the direction of panel width.
Kaindl endeavours to find a mutually acceptable solution to any complaint. we therefore kindly ask you to check the panels for visual defects prior to installation. Processed panels are excluded from complaint! Processing must cease immediately as soon as damage is discovered!
Adhesive bonding: wood flooring should be left for >24 hours before it is walked on.
Glueless: the floor can be walked on immediately after installation.
The ideal interior climatic conditions for wood flooring are 20-22° and 50-60% relative humidity. Excessive changes in air pressure can cause slight joint gap formation and deformations.
Not suitable for wet-rooms.

The laminate flooring we supply consists mainly of wood. The emission of formaldehyde from wood in its natural state lies at around 0.005-0.015 ppm. The emission of formaldehyde from our finished products is far below the legal limit values of Emission Class E1 (< 0,1ppm EN717-1). The emission of formaldehyde from our laminate flooring immediately after production and installation lies at 0.005-0.03ppm. This emission level is not continuous; after six weeks it is down to just one half of these values.
Kaindl products are absolutely safe. Kaindl manufactures in compliance with Austrian and European standards and is routinely inspected by institutes of world repute.
