Pinto engineered products may either be glued down over plywood or concrete subfloors. They can also be nailed/stapled down over plywood subfloors, using a specially designed hardwood floor stapler or nailer. 
- Suitable for concrete subfloor and on pre-existing floors such as: marble,Palladian ceramic, etc. Before the installation, it is necessary to verify the state of subfloor. Use a glue fitting to the type of existing subfloor in order to avoid incompatibility or deformations of the elements which have already been oiled or painted and do not need any further intervention. Cleaning during the laying process is essential, since the waste of glue could damage the pre-finished floor.

(only for 20 mm parquet) – After having chosen the best area in the room, align the board with the groove side along the wall, at a distance of at least 10-13 mm. For every listone-floor one or two 35-40 mm long nails must be inserted at 45° in the female part. THE NAILED INSTALLATION IS ALSO SUITABLE FOR: - Wooden floors set in work on joists - Wood panels made of wood by-products (in case of woody derived panels, we recommend an additional gluing of the flooring boards). 

 Before installation check the humidity level of the parquet-floor: it should respect the recommended values. In case of floating floors, the thermal resistance of the underlay under the floor must be verified. In the case of glued floors, the glues used must keep enough plasticity over time and be suitable for the laying on heating subfloor. After the subfloor has dried, its humidity level must be measured (in case of concrete subfloor it must not overcome 1.5-1.7% in the anhydrite subfloor 0.2%). The subfloor is then heated for at least 2-3 weeks with a temperature gradually increasing by 5° per day up to the maximum temperature of exercise of 35°C (which is kept for about 2 weeks). The heating is then turned off for 4-5 days (with the temperature gradually decreasing) before the installation takes place. Afterwards the heating can be turned on again, with the temperature gradually increasing up to normal levels. It must however be kept in mind that, according to the characteristics of the wood, the formation of gaps in the floor during the period of heating cannot be excluded.
