Expansion Gap A required expansion gap width of minimum 1/4-inch is required around the en � re perimeter of the fl oor and between the fl oor and all ver � cal par �� ons/obstruc � ons including all doorjambs. This minimum must be increased to 5/16” for areas larger than 1000 sq � . Do not place permanently mounted structures such as kitchen/bathroom cabinets or counters on the installed fl oor. The minimum expansion gap is de fi ned as the smallest gap between product and sta � c fi xture that can be measured at ANY point around the perimeter.

They can be used for replacement/repairs in the event you need to replace a piece in the future.

CAUTION: Vacuums with a beater bar or power rotary brush head can damage the fl oor and should never be used.
