Installation summary

Fiddleback Engineered Floating Floor is suitable for indoor use, it has a Patented Uniclick drop & lock system which can be installed floating over an appropriate underlay with a plastic moisture barrier, on a suitably prepared 100% flat, dry, waterproofed and structural subfloor such as plywood, particleboard, existing timber floorboards or concrete slabs. It is also suitable for installation over ceramic tiles & terrazzo as long as the surface is 100% flat. If levelling is required your installer will notify you before the installation commences. This product can also be installed as a direct stuck floor for a more stable underfoot feel. Please ask for me information on direct stuck floors. To minimize shade variation, mix & install planks from several cartons. Packs should be opened on the day of installation to avoid boards picking up moisture. We recommend a 12-15mm expansion gap on each edge, around perimeters, all room fixtures and any vertical obstructions such as pipes, island benches & cabinets. Rooms larger than 6 metres will need additional expansion joints.

On completion of installing your floor, install, trims, skirting or scotia over the expansion gap, fasten these to the wall only, never to the flooring itself. In places where profiles or skirtings cannot be placed, fill the expansion gaps with an elastic filler.

They are designed to be installed by a professional floor installer or highly skilled tradesperson. Installing engineered flooring requires a level of skill & it is recommended that a qualified tradesperson with the relevant skill levels install engineered floors. If you are unsure about installation, or would like a full installation guide, we encourage you to contact us with questions.


• Keep Fiddleback Engineered Floating Floors in a climate-controlled indoor area (between 18-25 °C)
• Avoid placing rugs or mats directly on the floor for at least 6-8 weeks after installation
• Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. Use blinds or drapes to minimise exposure
• Sweep or vacuum your floor regularly (at least once a week) to remove loose grit, dirt and dust
(Please note: Vacuums with a beater bar or power rotary brush head should not be used)
• Wipe up spills immediately to avoid stains
• Mop regularly with a very well rung out mop (almost dry) using water only or a mild specialty PH neutral wood floor cleaning solution
• Use doormats outside each entrance to prevent dirt, sand & grit etc. coming in contact with your floor
• Use floor protector pads (not rubber, latex or Cocoa fibre mats) under furniture legs & movable furniture
• Keep animal nails trimmed
• Stiletto heels or spiked heels can severely damage your floor. Maintain heels, take off your shoes on entering the floor area and use rugs or runners in high traffic areas
• Never drag, slide or roll furniture over your floor. Always lift and place in position carefully
• Do not steam mop

Timber is a natural material. Variation in appearance and properties is an enticing part of designing and building with real timber! Each fibre in each plank in each project is uniquely designed by nature. We strive in good faith to present you with the most accurate portrayal of what you can expect in your timber by using images, past job portfolios, detailed information and samples, the other part of this responsibility is advising you that your timber's appearance WILL vary from these guides. Please use this information as a guide only.
