We’ve designed, tested and manufactured Vinyl & Cork Underlay sheets to deliver a smooth, durable surface for your vinyl and cork tiles. You can also use the sheets under parquetry floor tiles, and they’re water-resistant and totally proofed against termites and rodents.

Why not cut Vinyl & Cork Tile Floor Underlay sheets to size onsite? Ideally use a 180mm Durablade, remembering always to use dust-collection devices, an approved dust mask and safety glasses.

Size & Thickness

VCU Fixing

Sheet edges should be kept approximately 3mm from the wall and any protrusions such as cupboards etc. If sheets are laid on plywood or particle board, a wallboard adhesive should be used to fix sheets according to the adhesive manufacturer’s specifications.

BGC recommends that 25x2.5mm Annular Threaded Underlay Nails or 22-25mm narrow crowned chisel point staples (galvanised or copper etched) be used in all other situations.

Nails or staples should be fixed at 75mm max centres around perimeter and 150mm max centres in field. Nails should be driven flush and staples should finish approximately 0.5mm below the sheet surface.

For more detailed installation instructions, please download the Vinyl and Cork Underlay brochure.

VCU Joining

Sheet should be laid with the long edges perpendicular to the direction of the floorboard. Joints in the sheets must not coincide with floorboard joints.
