Installation

As you might expect, it’s what you can’t see that makes all difference when looking at a great new floor and it’s why PTF takes the Installation process so seriously.

 

We’ve worked extensively with the Australian Timber Flooring Association (ATFA) to drive accredited industry standards, involving best-practise learning and process from around the world and adapting for local conditions and products.

 

We have developed three Installation Systems known as PTF-1, PTF-2 and PTF-3, to deliver the best end result possible, which ensures all of our customers have a complete peace of mind as to the end job of their new floor.

 

ptf_certifiedAll our workmanship and flooring products are backed by our comprehensive PTF Certified Warranty Program. Every PTF Installer must abide by the “PTF Installers Manual” which comprehensively details our builder’s expectations & specifications, which also exclusively feature specific moisture barriers and adhesives, developed by our world renowned partners, Loba and Wakol. This is known as the PTF Connected Installation Program.
