HOW TO INSTALL AND REMOVE YOUR EVERBLOCK FLOORING

EVERBASE AND EVERDANCE FLOORING INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

POSITIONING AND PUTTING TOGETHER OF FLOORING FOR CONNECTION

STEP 1: Lay first sheet so that loops are facing right and down (where you will install floor)

EverBlock Flooring transports in pre-assembled 3ft x 3ft or 3ft x 4ft sections. This speeds deployment of the flooring and allows you to transport “sheets” for easier installation, rather than individual 12” x 12” or 18” x 24” modules.

To begin, simply remove the first flooring sheet from the pallet and place in one corner of the floor to be installed.  Be sure the connector loops, which can be found on two sides of each sheet, are always facing toward the inside of the floor to be built (towards where the flooring will eventually be installed).

This is so that the adjacent connectors can easily slide into position over the loops and then snapped down and engaged.

STEP 2: Position the next sheet adjacent to the first, with the male clips facing the female loops, ready to be snapped in place.

Place the next flooring section adjacent to the prior one, with the connectors positioned in the same direction as the prior sheet (loops facing toward the direction of install), such that the male and female connectors are ready to be engaged between sheets.

We suggest working in lines, or rows, completing each subsequent row before starting the next line.  This will prevent drifting or misalignment of your floor, which can occur on larger installations.  If you have an oversized installation (stadium flooring for example) you can work simultaneously in rows and keep installing such that the prior row is further along in progress by about 5 sheets (20ft or so) than the next row.

STEP 3: Use your foot to nudge flooring over to the first panel, such that the male clips ride onto the female loops. Sections are designed to self-align when nudged together.

It is helpful to use the open “L” space in the corner formed by 3 sections (prior row and next row) to help guide placement of the next sheet.  You can use your feet to nudge or kick sections into the open space of the “L” so that it is ready for connection on two sides.   The male nub will ride up over the loops with a slight push or nudge with your feet.

FLOORING INSTILLATION AND DISMANTLING INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 4: Use a backwards kick with your heel to engage the male clip into the female loop. Kick backwards towards the loop and over the clip.

To connect flooring sections, press down firmly on the area near the male snap connector when positioned over the loop, depressing it into the opening of the loop. Press down until you feel a slight click, indicating that the connector is engaged. While the connectors are designed to self-guide into the receiver loop, due to ground variation, you may need to jiggle the connector area, using your foot, pressing down, until it engages. It is best to use a sudden, quick motion when connecting sections. Use a backwards kick at a roughly 45 degree angle to engage the clip into the loop.

FINAL THOUGHTS ON DISCONNECTING YOUR FLOOR

In general, we recommend working in complete rows, such that the entire row of sheets is disengaged first and then the row itself is broken down into sheets using the same tip and disconnect method.

DO NOT pull straight up on tiles when they are flat as this has the potential to damage the connection system.

  Sections are designed to disconnect when tipped, which is always the preferred method of dismantling your floor.  On a larger scale installation, you may find yourself disconnecting a row of sheets such that part is tipping while the rest of the row remains on the floor. Move slowly along the line, disconnecting sections as you go such that at the end the entire row is disengaged and ready to be broken down further into sheets.

DISMANTLING YOUR FLOOR

METHOD 1: Tipping sections to disconnect

EverBlock Flooring is designed to dismantle quickly, by simply tipping the desired floor section back about 45% until it disconnects from the adjacent section.   Preferred section sizes for transport and storage are 3ft x 4ft and 3ft x 3ft. 

When tipping up sections of floor for disconnection, be sure to place weight on the side of the floor that contains the connector loop, while pulling up at an angle on the side that contains the spring connector tab, thus disengaging in. By lifting the flooring section, such that the section begins to tip at the seam that is being detached, the connector locks begin to disengage, fully detaching when the floor is tipped to about 45 degrees.

METHOD 2: Angling sections to "unzip" flooring

The second method of disconnecting flooring sections is utilised primarily when getting a side seam started.  This method involves bending flooring sections backwards, such that they dis-engage and disconnect when they reach about 30%. 

This is the opposite of Method 1, which involves tipping flooring sections upwards and off the floor.In order to bend sections backwards, it is important to slightly lift sections off the floor and bend backwards at the seam line, slowly working your way along the line as the sections disengage. 

Lower the looped side downwards as you continue to disconnect the section. It is preferable to utilise Method 1 where possible as this is a speedier method.

  • Insert LEDs underneath the flooring for a luminescent looks

  • Cables can also fit underneath the tiles for a power source

  • Add corner edging to finish off the whole look of your flooring

  • Why not put edging around the flooring to create an easy access ramp

  • Create a professional looking dance floor with edging all around the perimeter

  • The Everblock flooring tiles perfectly pair with our Modular Building Blocks

CLEANING YOUR FLOOR

We recommend cleaning your floor with standard cleaning fluids, such a Windex or equivalent.  Use a soft damp rag to clean Dance Floor sections, which have a special laminated surface integrated into the module. 

For EverBlock solid colored (non laminated) floors, you can use standard cleaning fluids and even a pressure to remove any stubborn dirt. 

We have heard of some people cleaning floors in dishwashers, which is an option, but should only be done at lower temperatures.

Run cables under floors and to your desired location
