UNIFLOOR says fast and versatile Jumpax fast-track floor prep principle is a popular and successful underlay system.
This is because the flooring market is moving more and more towards resilient dry back finished floorcoverings such as LVT, PVC and vinyl, the company adds.
It says: ‘Jumpax is a unique and highly versatile underlay, instantly producing a perfect, stable surface for stuck-down floor finishes.
‘As a pre-fabricated, floating double-layered fibre-board system it combines speed and ease of use with excellent smoothing capacity and the ability to overcome many time consuming difficulties associated with traditional surface preparation methods.
‘It requires no screeds, glues, nails or other fixings and is ideal for use on solid and timber floor constructions. There’s no drying or setting time as with screeding systems, no priming, no mixing, no rubbing down and it has no smell.
‘It’s not necessary to remove old floorcoverings or surface coatings, which can be overlaid, nor is it necessary to decontaminate concrete in order to achieve a good bond, as the floating floor principle employed doesn’t require any kind of fixing or bonding to the substrate.
‘This also means future removal of floorcovering and underlay is quick, clean and easy, with no residues or damage whatsoever to the old floor surface, or previous floor finish.
‘An extensive range covers virtually every kind of floorcovering and substrate situation, including underfloor heating.
‘Each product has been designed to perfectly complement a specific type of floor finish by providing the ideal blend of support and surface quality for a prolonged life and enhanced appearance.’
