Hi, I have a client who wants two elevator floors done.  The flooring in the elevators is plywood with carpet over.  I want to know if I take the glue off the carpet, can I apply a pap flake floor over the plywood without worrying of delamination?

Short answer

Yes! I have installed Flexmar's PAP over a wooden substrate with no issues. The wooden floor was a garage floor over a theater room. Being a wooden floor I anticipated that there would be some measure of movement, yet the floor is still in pristine shape. It is 3 years old and was installed in January at temperatures of -10 Celsius!

Yes, I had never seen this type of construction. Home about 10 yrs old, wooden garage floor on top of trusses, closely spaced obvioously, but still WOOD! You could feel the flex in the floor when he drove his truck into the garage. The Flexmar has a little bit of flex to it and to this day NO problems.

Actually, Flexmar's PAP has a 1/8" mandrel bend, allowing for a certain degree of substrate movement as well as expansion/contraction of concrete.  If you want a copy of tech data/spec sheets or other info on material/system, give me a call 254-498-6635 or drop me an email message Lindy.Ausburne@gmail.com  ...I'll get it in your hands by "attachment" along with curent material pricing, assistance in figuring materials needed for your proposed project, and material/shipping quote.

By the way Brofun...welcome back to the DCF, haven't seen you here for a while. Hope all is flowing along well over there in Nags Head, NC (assume that is still where you hang your hat).
