What equipment do you need to install a flexible flooring profile?

The process of installing a flexible flooring profile, also called easy bend profiles, might seem daunting at first, but with proper planning, it can be a very manageable task. 

Once you’ve chosen the desired colour to match your decor and purchased your flexible flooring profile, there are a handful of handy tools that will serve you well during the installation process.

  • Tape Measure: This is critically important to determine the exact length and width of the flexible flooring profile installation area.
  • Marker: A suitable marker ensures accurate marking of the area and helps to prevent mistakes during the installation process.
  • Water: A bucket of water 40-60 degrees Celsius (or 104-140 degrees Fahrenheit).
  • Cutter or saw: Required to cut and shape the flexible profile to fit the desired area.
  • Level: This helps ensure an even installation, which is especially useful when the flexible profile is being used to cover differences in flooring levels.

A Step-by-step guide to installing an easy bending profile

Once you’ve gathered your tools, it’s time to move on to the installation process. 

When it comes to installing your flexible flooring profile, precision and patience are key. 

Points to note:

  1. You should know that each trim you order arrives in pristine condition, wrapped in the manufacturer’s packaging. Included, you’ll find a flexible base to assist you in your installation process.
  2. However, be advised that screws aren’t included in the package. Therefore, you’ll need to provide your own. Multipurpose screws or plugs are suitable but do ensure they’re compatible with your surface type.

Follow the instructions below carefully, and you should have a top-notch job in no time!

  1. The first step is to draw the necessary line on the prepared base surface, such as the floor. When doing so remember to maintain the bend radius. This is vital to ensure flexibility. 
  2. Next, secure the base to the floor in the designated position. This can be achieved by simply screwing it down.
  3. Then, place your flex line trim into warm water, maintaining a temperature of 40-60 degrees Celsius (or 104-140 degrees Fahrenheit). This will need to be done for approximately 15 minutes. Doing so is essential, as it makes the material softer and more pliable, making it easier to install.
  4. Once securely placed, make any final adjustments needed to ensure a seamless fit. This might require additional trimming or moving the flexible flooring profile slightly.
  5. Your flexible flooring profile should now be installed successfully. Double-check its stability and alignment. It should provide a smooth transition and cover any level differences you had initially.

With these instructions, installing your flooring profile should be an easy and straightforward process.
