PART 3: EXECUTION

Specifier Note: Revise article below to suit project requirements and specifier’s practice.

3.01 MANUFACTURER’S INSTRUCTIONS

B. Comply with the instructions and recommendations of the gymnasium & field house flooring manufacturer.

Specifier Note: Specify actions to physically determine that conditions are acceptable to receive primary products of the section.

3.02 EXAMINATION

A. Site Verification of Conditions: Verify that substrate conditions are suitable for installation of the gymnasium flooring system.

B. Do not proceed with installation until unsuitable conditions are corrected.

Specifier Note: Specify actions required to physically prepare the surface, area or site or to incorporate the primary products of the section.

3.03 PREPARATION

A. Surface Preparation: Ensure that the substrate is level or uniformly sloped since surface variations may be telegraphed through to the flooring surface.

B. Prepare substrate to provide a medium, dense finish with level tolerance of (+) or (-) 1/8″ (3.2 mm) in any 10’ (3 m) radius.

C. Do not install flooring until all masonry, painting, plaster, tile, marble and terrazzo work is completed, and overhead mechanical trades and painters have finished in the areas to receive the flooring.

1. Do not begin flooring installation until all subcontract work that would cause damage, dirt, dust or interruption of normal installation pace is completed.

D. Sub-floors shall be clean, dry, and free from dirt, dust, oil, grease, paint, alkali, concrete curing agents, hardening and parting compounds, old adhesive residue or other foreign materials.

E. The installation area shall be closed to all traffic and activity for a period to be determined by the flooring contractor.

Specifier Note: Coordinate article below with manufacturer’s recommended installation requirements. Retain paragraph applicable to specified system.

3.04 INSTALLATION

SITE CONDITIONS

Building must be closed in, permanent lighting and HVAC must function. Room must be conditioned prior to and during installation of systems. Relative humidity must not exceed 60% during installation. All backboards and overhead work must be completed. All in ground sleeve must be set and level with final playing surface. No other trades will be allowed in the work area. Stored materials must be protected and keep at a minimum of 40 F and a maximum of 100 F.

SUBSTRATE

Apply no sealers or curing compounds to the concrete.

The slab shall meet a tolerance of 1/8″ in 10’. Concrete shall cure a minimum of 60 days and test for moisture content of less than 5%. The concrete shall be free of all bond breakers, such as paint, joint compound, etc. The final slab shall be clean, level, and dry. If substrate does not meet specified tolerances, high spots shall be ground down smooth and low spots leveled with approved materials. Consult with manufacturer.

INSTALLATION

  • Primer – If required, apply 1-part polyurethane primer to substrate at the rate of 400-500 SF per gallon.
  • Rubber underlayment – Mix and apply, with proper notched trowel, 2-part polyurethane adhesive at the rate of .15 lbs. per SF. Install prefabricated rubber underlayment into fresh adhesive, cut and fit as necessary, do not compress seams, roll mat with 80-100 LB linoleum roller to ensure transference of adhesive, repeat as necessary.
  • Seal Layer – Mix and apply 2-part non-sag polyurethane, with flat trowel at the rate of .13 lbs. per SF, to seal pores in rubber underlayment.
  • Top resin layer – Mix and apply 2-part polyurethane elastomer, with Swedish knife, in a wet-to-wet fashion, at the rate of .55 lbs. per SF, to achieve typical 2mm thickness.
  • Finish – Mix and roll apply 2-part pigmented polyurethane coatings to resin layer, at the rate of .03 lbs. per SF.
  • Game line markings – Measure, lay out, mask, mix and apply 2-part marking compounds, and apply game lines, as required.

CURE TIME

Do not allow foot traffic or other trades on completed floor system for a period of one week, or as per manufacturers recommendations.

3.05 PROTECTION

A. Protect the installed flooring surface from damage resulting from subsequent construction activity on the site.
