    Installation plan
    for WARCO flooring

    The roof terrace of the Holmes Place Jelmoli Center in Zurich should be made more attractive. The existing covering of concrete slabs did not meet the requirements. With the help of a simple installation scheme in the scale of 1: 100, the exact number of WARCO terrace tiles could be easily calculated and from this moment nothing was in the way for the WARCO installation team to assemble the flooring.

Installation plan

Good planning is the half of success. It is childishly easy to install WARCO flooring on (almost) every stable subfloor. A simple installation scheme should not only be the basis of your order and the subsequent assembly but it should also help you to avoid unpleasant surprises.

  • Here we may see safety tiles in different colours - they are prepared for the installation on the terrace covered with a bituminous foil.

    Terrace tiles
    ready for installation

    This terrace should be to be covered with a flooring in several colours. With the help of a simple installation plan on a sheet of squared paper, the need for the tiles in anthracite, brick-red and grass-green was determined. Now we can pass on to the laying of the flooring on the terrace covered with a bitumen sheeting.

Draw the area you want to cover with elastic tiles in 1: 100 scale on a sheet of squared paper. One centimetre on the paper refers to one meter in reality, and one square on the paper corresponds to the area of 50 x 50 cm or exactly 1 tile in case of the product in 50 x 50 cm format.

Also with irregularly shaped surfaces, you will be able to see quite well on your drawing how many tiles you need and where you can use any potential, remaining cut-off pieces, so the least possible material is wasted. If you plan any particular assembly pattern, this can also be well-illustrated on the scheme.

  • In case of this versatile and useful garden terrace with grill and cooker, garden loudspeakers and sun-protecting sail, everything has been planned carefully before hand and the installation of the flooring was carried out step by step.

    Gartenterrasse mit
    Kochzeile und Sonnensegel

    Here everything has been thought out carefully to build a terrace that would be as convenient and comfortable as possible in the garden season. A good plan was the prerequisite for success. Gas, hot and cold water, electricity, internet and a special sail protecting against the sun and rain were installed. You may cook in the kitchen with grill or gas and rinse all you need with warm water. The terrace tiles with a tongue and groove connection system were installed by WARCO team on the subfloor made of a plastic stabilising grid.

Always order a few tiles more than you need for your installation and include potential pieces remaining from the cutting of the tiles. First, you might make a mistake during the assembly or cutting; secondly, you should always keep a few back-up tiles for the future.

Before the final installation, lay the tiles as a trial. You can sort the tiles taking into account shade variations, which occur naturally with floor tiles and this can be considered when positioning individual tiles. Check if your assumptions from the plan are right. Only when you are quite sure of the position of the particular pieces, you may start the installation of rubber floor tiles. .
