Special Precautions and Recommendations:
  1. Refer to the Commercial Vinyl-Backed Installation System for complete installation recommendations.
  2. Seams may be recess scribed slightly open [1/64" (0.4mm)] to make guiding the router easier. Use of theS-65 Heat Welding Nozzle(discontinued) will reduce scorching and the shiny appearance at seams.
  3. Do not install over existing on-grade or below-grade tile.
  4. The lines on the back of SAFEGUARD represent trademark edges.
  5. When installing several rolls in one area, SAFEGUARD sheet flooring must be installed in sequential order. Refer to section on Starting the Job for complete details for Roll/Label Identification and Installation.
  6. Armstrong commercial flooring is used in many applications where it is subjected to heavy concentrated static and dynamic loads. For questions regarding product suitability and detailed instructions for floor preparation and installation in these types of applications, please contact Armstrong.
  7. SAFEGUARD is designed for slip retardance, floor polish is not recommended. Most floor polishes will adversely affect the slip-retardant properties. Maintain by traditional dry mopping, wet mopping and scrubbing procedures. Do not buff or burnish. The use of scrubbing brushes is highly recommended (do not use stiff bristle brush or highly abrasive brushes).
