Installing 5 mm AquaStop –

a step-by-step guide

Before installation, please note: Check the base in accordance with CEN/TS 14472 and ensure that the quality of the base is suitable for proper processing. In general, the base should be clean, level, dry, resistant to tension and compression and should not contain any substances such as plasticisers, solvents or other diffusing substances. It must be ensured that the base is in a state of equilibrium humidity and that the CM value is below 2.0% (for cement screed) or below 0.5% (for anhydrite screed and anhydrite flowing screed). The processing instructions of the flooring manufacturer are to be observed as binding specifications.

Cleaning the surface

Cleaning the surface

Step 1
Clean the surface thoroughly with a brush or vacuum cleaner. Remove any adhesive and paint residues completely.

Laying out the first panel

Laying out the first panel

Step 2
Lay the first panel of the underlay flush with the wall over the entire width of the room. Make sure that the aluminium side is at the top.

Masking joints

Masking joints

Step 3
To protect against moisture, seal possible joints with SELITstop® Aluminium-Foil Sealing Tape to make the joints vapour-tight.

Masking the wall connection area

Masking the wall connection area

Step 4
To protect the wall connection area from moisture, ensure that you also mask the area with SELITstop® Aluminium-Foil Sealing Tape. To do this, stick approx. 3 cm of the aluminium tape to the wall and the rest to the underlay at a right angle.

Installing the flooring

Installing the flooring

Step 5
Lay the flooring in the same orientation as the underlay. Do not place any load on the underlay. If necessary, place the board under your knees/feet to distribute the load.

Finishing the installation

Finishing the installation

Step 6
Repeat steps 2 – 5 until the entire floor has been installed. Connect the individual panels of the underlay using the easy click® contour. Seal all joints with the Aluminium-Foil Sealing Tape to make them vapour-tight.
