Megamicro - Floor laying, Handling and storage

TRADITIONAL FLOOR LAYING

floor laying

floor laying

Description and technical features
Laying “MEGAMICRO” slabs requires similar laying conditions to those required for traditional format slabs.
“MEGAMICRO” requires the adhesive to be applied both on the setting bed and on the back of the slab.
“MEGAMICRO” slabs for flooring require the following conditions:

Instruments required

Processing stages:

BONDING TO THE FLOOR


Using the levelling system:

LEVELLING SYSTEM

The levelling system aims to guarantee perfectly levelled floors simply and quickly, eliminating any unevenness between the slabs. The levelling system is strongly recommended for laying “MEGAMICRO” slabs.

Instruments required

Description
The laying system with hidden mechanical safety hook on 6 mm “MEGAMICRO” slabs allows the wall covering to be installed in complete safety with a great impact.
For this application system, the “MEGAMICRO” slab is pre-processed in the factory, so that it is delivered to the site already equipped with the hidden mechanical safety hook, sealed onto the back of the slab and complete with protective film on the back.

Instruments required

BONDING TO THE WALL

In order to guarantee that the mechanical hook is properly fixed, it is recommended to use the suitable gas-powered nailing machine, which can ensure a constant supply of energy.

Handling and storage

For the correct handling of the pallets, a fork lift truck must be used, at least 2.5 m long, with the forks positioned in the MEGAMICRO width position.
Under normal conditions, the forks are positioned in the middle of the long side of the pallet, as they must grip the whole depth of the pallet.
To allow the extraction of the slabs easily and safely, it is recommended to position the pallets in a suitable area where the lift truck can be moved around all sides of the pallet.
For manual handling and subsequent laying of the “MEGAMICRO” slabs, in order to guarantee the operators’ safety and the integrity of the slabs, it is strongly recommended to use a frame with suction cups, available upon request, particularly suitable for large dimension “MEGAMICRO” formats (e.g. 300x150 cm – 150x150 cm) whereas on smaller “MEGAMICRO” formats (e.g. 150x75 cm) two double suction cups are sufficient.

storage - cut

Instruments required

The instruments for lifting and handling the slabs can be chosen according to the size of the slab and the activities to be performed on the site, in particular:

Processing stages:

Cutting and holes

MEGAMICRO can be easily processed by using some simple tools.
It is recommended to process the slabs on a flat work surface, at least 5 cm longer than the slab from each side or double suction cup.
It is recommended to perform the cutting operations with at least two operators. One operator is sufficient for making the holes.

Cutting

Instruments required
Depending on the type of cut and process to be applied to the slab, the recommended types of tools are listed below:

Processing stages:
LINEAR CUTS up to a MEGAMICRO length of 3 m

  1. Mark the portion to be removed at the ends of the slab.
  2. Position the cutting guide with cutting carriage so that the references on the guide coincide with the lines marked on the slab. Lock the cutting guide with the cutting carriage in place using the suction cups.
  3. Scoring: To guarantee correct scoring, the pressure and movement of the cutting carriage must be constant along the whole length of the cut.
    1.      Score one end of the slab by 15 cm pushing the cutting carriage towards the edge of the slab.
    2.      Complete the scoring up to the opposite edge of the slab.
  4. Cutting off:
    1.      Using the cutting guide move the slab until the scoring line protrudes by 5/10 cm from the work surface.
    2.      Release the cutting guide from the suction cups and move it towards the middle of the slab.
    3.      Start the cutting off process by positioning the cutting pliers in line with the line scored on the slab. Exert progressive pressure until you notice that the cutting off process has begun.
    4.      Go to the opposite side and position the cutting pliers in line with the line scored on the slab. Exert progressive pressure until you notice that the cutting off process has begun.
    5.      To complete the cutting off process, one or more operators must grip the portion to be removed and exert progressive pressure downwards.
  5. The finishing of the edges on the cut side must be carried out using the special diamond buffer.

L-SHAPED CUTS

For L-shaped cuts (holes for electrical boxes, internal corners) it is recommended to round off the internal angle by making a hole first with suitable wet core bits.

SQUARE CUTS/CUT-OUT

Mark the portion to be removed on the slab. To limit the possibility of breaking, it is recommended to make a Ø 7 mm hole in line with the point where the two lines marked on the slab meet. With an angle grinder equipped with a diamond blade, follow the marked lines.

RECTANGULAR HOLES

Using an angle grinder equipped with a diamond blade join the 4 holes.

Holes

Instruments required
Depending on the type of hole and process to be applied to the slab, it is recommended to use the following instruments:

Processing stages:

ROUND HOLES

RECTANGULAR HOLES

Using an angle grinder equipped with a diamond blade join the 4 holes.
