The Academy for Excellence in Flooring partners with Uzin for Master Installer

THE Academy for Excellence in Flooring has partnered with installation products specialist, UZIN, to bring specialist advice to its training programmes.

The academy says it’s only too aware of the importance of a correctly prepared subfloor when it comes to a successful and lasting installation of installing Quick-Step engineered wood, laminate and luxury vinyl planks and tiles. So, it has partnered with installation products manufacturer, UZIN, to include subfloor preparation in its Master Installer programme.

The initiative was begun by the academy’s technical manager, Lee Thompson: ‘We’ve been training installers in the correct way to install engineered wood, laminate and vinyl floors for over a decade. We’ve always stressed the importance of subfloor preparation as critical to the installation’s long-term success. Site conditions encountered often mean the subfloor needs remedial attention before installation can start and so we wanted to ensure Master Installers had the right knowledge and experience to deliver the perfect surface.

‘UZIN is one of the industry’s most-respected installation products manufacturers and offers a full system of time-proven subfloor preparation products to overcome all sorts of on-site challenges. It shares similar values of quality and innovation with Quick-Step and also has a great technical department ready to offer Master Installers the best possible route to achieving the ideal subfloor. It’s a pairing of two premium brands that has strengthened the Master Installer programme.’

Wood and laminate and LVT Master Installer training programmes now include a half-day session on achieving the correct subfloor, including moisture levels, smoothing compounds and what constitutes a correctly prepared subfloor for Quick-Step floorcoverings. All Master Installers will receive certification of completion from UZIN, as well as the usual benefits that come with the Quick-Step accredited programme.
