What’s the maximum floor length I can install?

Flex Click vinyl

If you’re using flexible vinyl, you can make your floor as long and wide as you want without needing an expansion profile.

Except for following situations:

  • The temperature in adjacent rooms will variate differently above and below the T-range of 18-30°.
  • When you have rooms with and without floor heating or cooling.

Alpha vinyl

With Alpha Vinyl, we recommend using an expansion joint when:

  • The temperature in adjacent rooms will variate differently above and below the T-range of 18-30°
  • When you have rooms with and without floor heating or cooling.
  • The maximum room size is exceeded:
    • For standard residential use (15-35°C), the maximum room size is 13mx13m.
    • For rooms with more extreme temperatures (5-65°C), the maximum room size is 8mx8m.
    • For rooms with HVAC-system (18-25°C), the maximum room size is 30mx30m.
