Lay it yourself or have it laid? 

Whether you lay MEISTER flooring yourself or have it laid depends solely on you. The floors can all be laid floating (with the exception of the MeisterDesign. pro design floor) – with a little skill, every do-it-yourself enthusiast can do it himself. If the laying pattern is a bit more elaborate (as with herringbone installation) and you want to save time or want a 100% perfect result, leave the installation to the professional. Your specialist retailer will be happy to put you in touch with the right tradespeople.

Incidentally, some floors are particularly easy for the layperson to install. This includes the design flooring MeisterDesign. life. It can easily be cut with a cutter knife. This eliminates the need for time-consuming sawing and thus also noise and dirt. You can also save the walking distance between the installation work and the saw and are therefore able to complete the installation more quickly.

Glue the flooring down or choose a floating installation? 

All MEISTER floors (except the MeisterDesign. pro design floor) are designed for floating installation and equipped with a stable click system. A floating installation offers several benefits: It does not require glue or adhesive and is therefore much cleaner than full-surface bonding. That is why it is usually the laying method of choice for the DIY enthusiast.

But what about impact sound and the stability of the floor? With MEISTER flooring, there are no problems here. Due to the stable HDF board in their core, the floors have a high dead weight and therefore lie securely and stably on the substrate. High weight also means less vibration and thus less noise production. When the underlay materials are coordinated with the floor and subfloors, it’s even quieter. Smaller surface irregularities are also levelled out.

At the end of a floor’s life at the latest, another advantage of floating installation becomes apparent: A non-glued floor is of course much easier to remove (this also applies to the replacement of damaged floorboards).

The patented click systems: Masterclic Plus

Various patented click systems are used for MEISTER floors. These mean that the floors can be laid very easily and using floating installation without glue or other adhesives. Each click system is tailored to the specific features and format of the flooring. The Masterclic Plus click system is used particularly frequently. What’s special about it: The end is only locked in place once the plank is laid in the following row. This ensures a particularly secure and dimensionally stable connection.

The unique combination of the non-adhesive click system Masterclic Plus:

  • There are no protruding, difficult-to-handle tongues at the end which may lead to the joints opening when lowering the plank.

  • In contrast to conventional fold-down laying methods, the ends don’t lock during placement.

  • As soon as the next row of planks is laid, the Masterclic Plus click system is activated and its fixings lock automatically. 

  • The specially developed and patented profile geometry with height and side levelling secures the exact end positioning of the planks. This creates a pre-tension which ensures a durable joint lock.

  • When disassembling the flooring, the Masterclic Plus connection can easily be pivoted out.

1. The flooring is lowered right next to the neighbouring plank.

2. After lowering, the flooring is not yet locked at the ends.

3. The tongue is only activated when the next row is laid.

4. This results in a secure connection.
