What is the maximum floor length I can install without expansion joint?

The maximum floor length you can install without expansion joint mainly depends on two things:

  • the shape of the room in which the floor will be installed 
  • the climate conditions in that room

If the room is more or less square and if there aren’t too many indoor climate changes between weekdays and the weekend or during the day, then you can lay with room dimensions of more than 20mx20m for HDF-core products and dimensions of more than 24mx24m for Spruce-core products an intermediate expansion joint should be fitted.

For Quick-Step Intenso and Disegno you are limited to a max. room dimension of 12mx12m.

It is also recommended to foresee expansion joints under the doors between rooms to separate the rooms. Make sure your expansion gaps are adapted to the dimensions of the room.

See our installation instructions for more detailed information.
