Invictus® Installation Guide

When installing Invictus® Flooring using either the glue-down or click-lock method, attention to detail is paramount to ensure a flawless and enduring result.

Let’s delve deeper into each step of the installation process for both methods:




Glue-Down Installation:

  1. Preparation: Before starting the installation, thoroughly inspect the subfloor for any imperfections, such as dips or bumps, and address them accordingly. Ensure that the subfloor is clean, dry, and free from debris, grease, or adhesive residues. If necessary, use a levelling compound to create a smooth and even surface for the flooring.
  2. Acclimatisation: Invictus® Flooring planks should be allowed to acclimatise to the room’s temperature and humidity conditions for at least 48 hours before installation. Stack the flooring boxes horizontally in the room where they will be installed, maintaining proper spacing between boxes to facilitate air circulation. If possible opening both ends of each box assists the process.
  3. Layout: Carefully plan the layout of the flooring, considering the dimensions of the room, the direction of the planks or tiles, and any architectural features or obstacles. Begin installation from the longest and straightest wall in the room, working towards the opposite wall. Use a chalk line to create a straight reference line along the starting wall to guide your installation.
  4. Adhesive Application: Select a high-quality adhesive recommended by Invictus® Flooring and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for application. Use a notched trowel to spread the adhesive evenly over the subfloor in small sections, ensuring full coverage without excess buildup. Work methodically to avoid adhesive drying out before installing the flooring.
  5. Installation: Carefully place the Invictus® Flooring planks into the adhesive, starting from the reference line and working towards the opposite wall. Press down firmly on each plank to ensure a secure bond with the adhesive. Where possible a small hand roller assists and won’t damage your flooring.
  6. Trimming: As you approach the end of each row, measure and cut the final plank to fit against the wall, leaving a gap for expansion. Use a utility knife or a vinyl cutter to make precise cuts, ensuring a snug fit. Remove any excess adhesive from the surface of the flooring with a clean cloth or adhesive remover.
  7. Finishing Touches: Once the installation is complete, allow the adhesive to cure according to the manufacturer’s recommendations before allowing foot traffic on the floor. Install matching transition strips or mouldings along the perimeter of the room to cover expansion gaps and provide a finished look ( only if required due to gaps in skirting boards etc ).

Click-Lock Installation:

  1. Preparation: Prepare the subfloor as you would for glue-down installation, ensuring it is clean, dry, and level. Remove any existing flooring materials and thoroughly clean the subfloor to ensure proper adhesion of the click-lock flooring.
  2. Acclimatisation: Allow the Invictus® Flooring planks to acclimatise to the room’s temperature and humidity conditions for at least 48 hours before installation. Stack the flooring boxes horizontally in the room where they will be installed, maintaining proper spacing between boxes for air circulation.
  3. Layout: Plan the layout of the flooring, starting from the longest and straightest wall in the room. Consider the direction of the planks and any architectural features or obstacles. Begin installation along the reference line, leaving an expansion gap along the walls and transitions to other flooring surfaces.
  4. Installation: Begin by installing the first row of Invictus® Flooring planks, ensuring that the click-lock edges are securely engaged. Use a tapping block and rubber mallet to gently tap the planks into place, ensuring a tight fit. Continue installing subsequent rows, interlocking the planks with the click-lock system and staggering the end joints for stability.
  5. Trimming: As you approach the end of each row, measure and cut the final plank to fit against the wall, leaving a gap for expansion. Use a saw or a vinyl cutter to make precise cuts, ensuring a snug fit. Remove any excess debris from the surface of the flooring with a vacuum or broom.
  6. Finishing Touches: Once the installation is complete, remove any spacers and install matching transition strips or mouldings along the perimeter of the room to cover expansion gaps and provide a finished look( for click products ). Allow the flooring to acclimatise and settle for at least 24 hours before heavy foot traffic or placing furniture on the floor.

By following these detailed instructions for both the glue-down and click-lock installation methods, you can achieve a professional and long-lasting result with your Invictus® Flooring. Whether you’re installing in a residential or commercial space, Invictus® Flooring offers exceptional quality and versatility to enhance any environment.

Invictus® Maintenance Guide

The Invictus® Flooring care and maintenance guide is your comprehensive resource for ensuring that your flooring investment retains its beauty and durability for years to come.

Here’s an expanded look at each aspect of caring for your Invictus Flooring:

  1. Regular Cleaning: Incorporate regular cleaning into your routine to keep your Invictus® Flooring looking its best. Begin by sweeping or vacuuming the floor to remove loose dirt, dust, and debris. Opt for a soft-bristled broom or a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to prevent scratching the surface. For a deeper clean, damp mop the floor using a mild detergent solution and water. Be sure to wring out the mop thoroughly to avoid excess moisture, which can damage the flooring.
  2. Avoid Harsh Chemicals: When cleaning your Invictus® Flooring, it’s essential to steer clear of harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaners. These products can strip away the floor’s protective finish and cause irreparable damage. Instead, stick to pH-neutral cleaning solutions specifically formulated for vinyl flooring. These gentle yet effective cleaners will help maintain the integrity and appearance of your flooring without causing harm.
  3. Immediate Spill Cleanup: Spills happen, but it’s crucial to address them promptly to prevent staining or damage to your Invictus® Flooring. Use a damp cloth or mop to wipe away spills as soon as they occur, then dry the area thoroughly with a clean, dry cloth. This quick action will help prevent moisture from seeping into the flooring and causing long-term damage.
  4. Furniture Protection: Protect your Invictus® Flooring from scratches and indentations by using furniture pads or felt protectors under the legs of heavy furniture pieces. These simple yet effective measures will help distribute the weight of furniture evenly and prevent damage to the flooring surface. Additionally, avoid dragging furniture across the floor, as this can cause scratches and gouges.
  5. Avoid Direct Sunlight: Direct sunlight can cause fading and discolouration of your Invictus® Flooring over time. To minimize this risk, use window coverings such as blinds or curtains to block out harsh sunlight during peak hours. Alternatively, consider applying UV-blocking window film to protect your flooring from harmful UV rays while still allowing natural light into your space.
    ** Please note UV has an equal effect on all brands and therefore this information is not limited to Invictus® Flooring.
  6. Use Entrance Mats: Place entrance mats or rugs at entryways to trap dirt, grit, and moisture from shoes before they can be tracked onto your Invictus® Flooring. Regularly clean and shake out mats to prevent dirt buildup, and opt for a mat with a rubber backing to prevent slippage on the flooring surface. By capturing dirt and moisture at the door, you can prevent it from being spread throughout your home and damaging your Invictus® flooring.
  7. Protective Measures: Exercise caution when moving heavy objects or sharp items across your Invictus® Flooring. Avoid dragging heavy furniture or appliances, as this can cause scratches, dents, or gouges. Instead, use protective pads or coasters under furniture legs to distribute weight evenly and prevent damage to the flooring surface.
  8. Routine Maintenance: Make it a habit to inspect your Invictus® Flooring regularly for signs of wear, damage, or issues. Address any minor scratches or scuffs promptly using a vinyl floor repair kit or touch-up pen, following the manufacturer’s instructions for best results. Additionally, consider implementing a routine maintenance schedule that includes periodic deep cleaning and maintenance to keep your flooring looking its best for years to come.

By following the Invictus® Flooring care and maintenance guide diligently, you can ensure that your flooring investment remains beautiful, resilient, and durable for years to come. With proper care and attention, your Invictus Flooring will continue to enhance your home or commercial space with its timeless elegance and exceptional quality.
