Hello and welcome to planeo. My Name is David Fuchs. Today’s subject deals with laying
down a floor covering in a large room. Remodeling made simple. How to quickly and easily lay a floor
covering on top of an existing one. As you can see, these are two rooms,
that can be separated or used as one. That means,
you want one consistent look. That is what this video is about
and I would like to show, how and what system you should use
to accomplish that. For example the planeo silent stick. Follow me throughout this video
and take a look. I will show you a few innovations. A few words about the room,
so you have some reference points, and you can decide,
whether that fits your needs. Room size is 160-170 square meters,
and occasionally it gets split into two separate rooms. Most of the time it is one room. There is PVC flooring on the
left side, and linoleum on the right Right now it looks ugly
and the material is quite old. The owners prefer not to close for
two weeks, rip everything out, having to sand and level the floor
before putting in new floor covering. The goal is to paint the room,
install the new floor in 1-3 days and reopen. That could interest you, if you own
a store and want to remodel during the weekend or you have
a public space somewhere with a lot of foot traffic, that you
don’t want to close down for long, because you need to
be able to sell continuously. Or it could be an apartment,
and that is the great advantage of the planeo silent stick. In this video, I want to show you
how easy it is, and the advantages of installing one consistent floor and
how pleasant the floor is to use. Follow me in this video and take
a look, how the room changes. We are done painting the walls
and want to start with the floor covering. As I mentioned, we don’t want to glue
something like vinyl on top, but instead we want a system with the
planeo silent stick, the noise insulation underlay
which functions as our glue as well. On top of which we lay down
the vinyl sheets later on. How does it work? How do we manage this all over
at a length of 17 meters? We get started and first of all
spread the silent stick all over, then we give you a few hints
how to best accomplish that. Follow me and I will show you. A few more remarks, before
I start spreading the silent stick. You can use this system on tiles
and all hard and solid surfaces. Here old PVC flooring, that should
stay and has been glued all over. The venue is supposed to be reopened
in next to no time and that makes this system the perfect fit. If you have something like this, like
old floors, just put in on top. Please, no carpets.
That doesn’t work. The floor needs to be clean
and free of dust. Check, whether it is even,
we also got videos for that. Now we can get started. How do you use it? The coarse side of the silent stick
down, the film side up. At the edges up to contact or leave
a small gap and then roll it out and cut it with a utility knife
at the end. When an old role
has finished and you want to continue with the next one,
then please don’t work edge to edge. That doesn’t work, because you won’t
get good adhesion at that spot. Therefore I give you a little hint,
take the role and turn it, role it out so you hit the wall
nicely right up the edge, take your time adjusting it role it over. You’ll notice, that there is a edge
right here. Take a generous amount extra,
maybe as much as 10 centimeters. Now you can use a bracket
or a t-section or if you can do it freehand and you make a clean cut through both sound insulation
underlays. That gives you a precise edge. The end piece with no adhesion is gone
and you got a nice, clean transition. There you go, finished. We put down the planeo silent stick
and it is starting to take shape. All over, edge to edge,
you must avoid overlap and you can see that the end pieces
are slightly rolling up. For that reason
please allocate an extra day It takes 24 hours to release tension
from the material and roles. Tomorrow we can start
gluing the sheets on. That is really important. Make sure you have sufficient
utility knives, since the material contains quartz and the cutters
will become dull after a few cuts. I am looking forward to tomorrow,
see you then. The next day is starting and today’s
goal is to cover the entire room. That’s why we arrived as a team,
the planeo team. Meet Mr. Pritzkau, Mr. Fuchs, who you
know from the channel and Mr. Klippenstein. We want to show you how it works
and how easy it is. To start off with, we want to
draw a line for the vinyl sheets and we want this line in the middle,
so we can work in both directions. This is different to the click,
where we started at the wall. Here we start in the middle
and pick our starting points. It is crucial that we project the line
parallel to the wall. We measured it and found
our point, 3.40 meter. We set these points equally on
the left and right side and then draw the whole line with a chalk line. With the two points you don’t want to
yank a straight edge all the way to draw the line,
but instead use a chalk line. Take a color that is clearly visible. One is holding on tight
and I walk across, nice and taught,
and when both are pulling tight, somebody walks up to the middle,
pulls the string up, let’s go and we have our line. Perfect! Now we can take the line away and see,
how nicely the line runs throughout the entire room. Now we do the following, after we
draw the line it is important to move along
with a level or a straight edge. It needs to be in excess of 2 meters. Glide along the line with the knife,
so that at that point we can open it up
and expose the sticky surface. We do this for the entire room and
that’s our first step in this process. We made the cut and start
the next step of the work process. That means that we remove the film
laterally away from the line. But we don’t expose it all,
just as much, as you are working on. That means remove 1-2 rows. Not too much, because this will be
our layer for walking on later. Here you can see that the whole row
on this side has been opened To the right we have a clean
anchor point, where we start. Now we attach the first row of sheets. I’ll show it to you in a close-up,
come on over. Before I start
I want to reiterate in which direction we lay down
the floor covering. The underlay was put down in this direction, but the sheets
go the other direction across the underlay and
not parallel with it. You should plan this accordingly
in advance. We start at a clean anchor point
and please hold one side of the sheet bottom right
and lift the other one or whatever feels comfortable for you. I chose this side an now I orientate
the sheet along this line. Do that now and put it down,
just like I am showing you. Only when it is perfect
you run your Finger across it.. Please keep a 5 mm distance here. The room is 17 meters long,
please deduct 0,5-1 centimeter from the wall. When you finished the first, press it
down again and now I already start the next row. A small hint,
We start a second row immediately. The reason for that is this. I create a 90-degree
angle,which I achieve easiest, if I start a second row. You can do this very easily. I start in the middle using an
offset grid then press the sheet down. I need a bit of space,
so I too have the line. When that is done,
push the board down and we get a 90-degree-angle. That stops me from veering off
to the left or right along the way. Do it that way
and start with two rows. Here you can fit in the next board. As before, edge to edge. As long as you don’t push down you can work cleanly
with the silent stick. In case of a mistake you can lift
a board and then forcefully push it down again
and smooth it out. It is very clean and easy
to work with. That’s it. That is the basic procedure and
now we finish those two rows. Using an offset pattern
with the two rows. We finish the line
and will be right back. We laid down the first two rows.. Like I said 18 meters in one piece
going through two rooms. The planeo silent stick
is great for that. Conveniently in two rows. Now we can start working from
this side in this direction as well as in the other direction. Now you realize, why we didn’t remove
the protective film further. Just to protect the adhesive surface. Now we pull away the film row by row
so that four people can work easily. We’re going all out now,
finish the roomand will be right back. We worked for about 20 minutes
and created a surface of 1.20 meters. The following is really important,
we pushed everything down by hand but there are still little
air bubbles present. Your best bet for removing them
is a floor roller. If you don’t have one at home
and this is a one off project rent one at your local tool vendor. It is not expensive. I’ll be around 20 Euro. Get that. A floor roller is an excellent way
to remove air. Keep in mind to use the roller every half hour or every meter
at la minimum. It’s because after we remove
the film, there is a window of about 30 minutes, before the
adhesive surface starts to dry up. I get started and run the roller a
couple of times across the surface and also sideways and please
do the same at home. This way you create a strong,
clean adhesive bond. You can still make adjustments
if you still notice air or if a gap has appeared, you can lift the board and replace it
with a new one. After you checked for problems
you start with the roller. The entire surface has been laid down
by the four of us in six hours. You can do that as well, if you
have a project like a restaurant, a boutique or a community center
like here, then you don’t want to shut down
your business for a long time. One day of remodeling
and you got a brand new floor down. That’s possible with the
planeo silent stick system. Vinyl sheets for gluing on
are the perfect material. You can order some samples
and we will give you a ton of samples. Don’t hesitate
to ask for a consultation. Did you like the video? Thumbs up,
I’ll see you later, take care!
