All Type Flooring’s Aristocrat Laminate, Vortex and Aquadrop ranges are suitable for indoor use only and must maintain a normal indoor humidity level of between 35% and 65% throughout the year in order to minimize the natural expansion and contraction of the wood. A span of 12 metres and above must have an allowance for an expansion trim, as per installation guidelines.

During the hotter seasons, an humidifier is recommended to prevent excess shrinkage due to low humidity levels.

During other seasons, an air conditioner or dehumidifier will assist in maintaining humidity levels in the summer months.

Please note: that all flooring must be acclimatized to conditions prior to installation.
