Installation Instructions

The Paths are easy to install. Basically, peel and stick.

If going over grout lines, follow this link for instructions on how to do this.

The stickers are made from a waterproof commercial grade of a permanent adhesive backed vinyl and a permanent low slip over laminate. If installation and maintenance guidelines are followed correctly, your path will last for several years. We recommend installing on a clean, waxed vinyl composition tile. Bare tiles, or previously stripped tiles that do not have a layer of wax will need at minimum one layer of wax to offer a sealed surface for proper adhesion.

We recommend once the path is installed, to give it 12 hours to settle and allow the adhesive to grip the floor surface. Maintenance can manually mop and sweep during this initial settling period. To get the longest life from your installed path, it is recommended that a non-yellowing commercial wax be applied on top of the installed Path. Adding this extra protection will protect the Path when Care Taking staff use a machine to mop or buff the floors.

The Path can not be removed for cleaning. The Path uses a permanent adhesive backed vinyl with a nonslip surface. Removable adhesive vinyl products degrade over 6 months resulting in edges lifting. Removing them will destroy the Path but not damage the floor tiles.

Removal of the Path

The removal is a simple as stripping off the protective wax layers and applying the same stripper to the film. Using a scrapper and lifting the edge slightly of the path piece will allow for the floor stripping solution to release the adhesive from the initial wax layers that were on the floor when the path was applied.

Types of Surfaces required for Proper Adhesion.

Hardwood floors which have been properly sealed and maintained with a hard wax should offer the adhesive the proper surface to adhere. Since The Path has an additional layer of lamination for added protection, it should be fine without additional waxing. If the area is a high traffic area, additional waxing would offer additional protection with out hurting the floor. Stripping the floor would remove it from the surface and additional stripping to remove initial layer of hard wax would be recommended to refresh the wood.

Ceramic floor which have a sealed surface such as a glaze will offer a good surface for adhesion. Breaks between tiles where grout may be, will need to be cleaned and sealed to offer proper performance. View this link for application.

Indoor finished concrete surfaces that are sealed with a concrete finishing sealant or stained and sealed should offer a proper adhesive surface. Painted concrete which is prepared properly and sealed and cured, will offer the proper surface for adhesion. Finishing with a commercial wax will help keep the paths from lifting if applied to a high traffic area.

Laminate flooring with a textured surface is fine for adhering the pathways. Laminate flooring has a properly finished coating and if properly cleaned before application, will offer a good surface to hold the film. The film we use is very strong but thin and the texture of the floor may be visible on the surface of the film, but it should not compromise the quality of the product.

All commercial locations with high traffic flow over the surface of the path should use additional wax as they normally would to offer the proper protection from usage, and any environmental factors which would typically degrade the normal surface.
