All Pegulan vinyls with TX® felt backing can be loose laid to most areas in residential applications, however care needs to be taken in complex layouts such as multi room installations (through passage ways into adjoining rooms for example) or where island benches or fixed cabinetry exist to ensure the product does not buckle.  Please read the section below to determine if a loose lay installation is right for your application.


The following recommendations are made:

  • All subfloors should follow the recommendations of smooth, dry, clean and level. Pegulan vinyl flooring is incredible resilient however it is a flexible product that will relax after installation and conform to any undulations in the subfloor. The smoother and more level the starting floor is, the better the end result.

  • This method of installation is specifically not recommended in areas of heavy traffic or when the use of roller-casters (ie Caster Chairs) is required or in areas exposed to prolonged direct sunlight or standing water such as bathrooms. Where refrigerators, dishwashers or other heavy objects are to be "constantly" moved then the vinyl should also be glued down. Of course care should be taken at all times when moving these items and the use of a trolley or sliding them on sheets of ply is highly recommended to avoid damaging the floor. 

  • By definition, a loose lay installation should not be perimeter adhered as this may cause buckling. Do not adhere or use silicon on the perimeter of vinyl as this can also cause buckling.

  • Pegulan vinyl flooring is highly stable and will not shrink or curl when correctly loose laid, but due to our variable Australian climate, sudden or prolonged hot weather can temporarily cause a slight growth in the vinyl, (as it does in concrete and steel rails). Therefore it is important that a small gap of approximately 1-2mm is left around the perimeter of the material. Failure to leave this gap can cause buckling of vinyl due to the material being forced against skirting, cupboards and or door frames. Re-trimming of vinyl after it has acclimatised for a week or two may be required in some instances.

  • It is imperative that all joins between adjoining pieces of loose laid vinyl are cold welded with an appropriate seam-sealer. Do not use adhesive or tape at joins as this will invariably cause buckling.

  • All commercial installations of Pegulan vinyl must be fully stuck to the subfloor.

This is a snap-shot of our recommendations and should be read in conjunction with our full installation guidelines in "the technical" section of this website.

Pegulan comprehensively guarantees the quality of its products. Pegulan however cannot guarantee the quality of the installation or the suitability of the subfloor it is installed over as these are out of our control.
