Installation Instructions

Deflex 850 installation instructions

1. The base surface, to which the profile is supposed to be installed, must be even, smooth, free of any contaminants. After the surface is cleaned, the profile installation location needs to be primed (binding layer must be applied).




2. In order to even out the surface, it is necessary to create a base layer using epoxy resin (on both sides of the expansion joint) or using modified cement mortar, with a width of approx. 20-30 mm more than the support arms of the aluminium profiles.




3. The aluminium surfaces adhering directly to the floor level must be thoroughly cleaned, with the removal of any oils or fats, before installation.
Lay out the side profiles on the initially prepared epoxy resin or modified cement mortar layer, making sure that no air bubbles are created. Gently press the profile with a rubber hammer until evened out with the floor finish top surface.
The laid-out fresh resin or mortar layer must pass through the openings in the side support aluminium profiles. Top support surfaces must be cleaned of the fresh mass squeezed out this way.
Make sure the profile joints are level, so that equal height is maintained.




4. After the epoxy resin or modified cement mortar dries, anchor the profile and remove the installation 'beams' (metal clamps). Use anchors appropriate for the load values and surface type for the installation. Adhere to the recommendations of the installation anchor manufacturer.
Anchoring the profile must be made at a spacing of approx. 300 mm, and approx. 50 mm from the edge of the aluminium profile.
In order to install four running metres of profile, one needs approx. 30 anchors, which gives a use of 7,5 anchors for a running metre of expansion joint.




5. After the side profiles are mounted, install the profile centre part made of aluminium, just like the arms of the support profiles.




6. After adjustment, screw the profile centre part to the side profiles.




7. Insertion of the elastomer inlays.



8. After profile installation, one may commence with the execution of the floor finish surfaces.
