The antigua PROFESSIONAL Hydrotec vinyl floor is robust and resistant to high stresses.
- Highly resilient the wear layer of the Professional design vinyl is 0.55 mm. Accordingly, the floor is ideal for commercial areas and rooms subject to heavy wear and tear.
- Waterproof core board Instead of the usual HDF coreboards, waterproof rigid PVC coreboards are used for the Hydrotec panels. Therefore, the floor can also be used in damp rooms without any problems.
- environmentally conscious

Variant: DIY Instruction
Check the subfloor. Any unevenness that exceeds 3 mm over a length of 1 m should be sanded down or filled with a floor levelling compound. Then clean the surface to be laid with a hoover.
CAUTION: Never install vinyl over a soft subfloor such as carpet, cork or any type of foam underlay.
The vinyl planks should be stored horizontally in the room where it is to be installed for at least 48 hours before installation in the packages. This will allow the material to acclimatise to the room temperature and not "work" so hard after installation.
Before laying the floor, it is imperative to follow the official laying instructions, which are included in every package, otherwise any claim to warranty and guarantee will be void!
Before laying out the floor, check the wall you are starting on and make sure it is at right angles to the opposite wall. If the impact sound insulation is not already integrated, we now recommend spreading out the insulation.
Tips for the UniClic system: To achieve as uniform a floor appearance as possible, it is recommended to install panels from different packages mixed together. You should start laying in a corner (left) and starting from the wall. Lay the first plank with the tongue side facing the wall. Then snap the second plank into the first from the top on the face side. In the second row, the plank is placed at an angle to the end face of the row already laid and folded down. While folding down, the long side of the plank is clicked into the existing plank. With a little pressure, the click joints now snap into place. The transverse joints (front side) should be offset by at least 30 cm from row to row ("wild bond", half a plank length for tile formats). You can use a tapping block and a light tap on the long side of the plank to help it along. To cut a plank, now take measurements and mark the plank. Then take an angle and tear the plank with a multi-purpose knife/cutter and break it off.
Place the spacers on walls, door frames, fixed wall cabinets, kitchen units, etc. so that you have an expansion gap of approx. 5-10mm for underfloor movement or expansion of the product. To install the last row, it is recommended to use the floor layer's jointing iron from the accessories. When using skirting boards, make sure that the expansion joint is covered by the skirting board. If the floor is sealed, e.g. in the bathroom, the PE round cord is now inserted into the expansion joint and the floor sealed with a silicone joint.
Finally, cut off the PU film approx. 2 cm high and attach the skirting boards.
