Plan vs. Elevation
Compared to the plane, the elevation will be more complicated. The elevation contact surface will have cabinets, sliding doors, wood finishes, floor-to-ceiling glass, walls, columns, tatami mats and so on.
1. Expansion joints are required for contact elevations
In this type of installation scenario, the buckle type of the floor is an issue that must be avoided in advance.
The flooring is divided into two types of locking and flat buckles, and the installation of these two buckle types is different.
Tongue and Groove
The façade is actually required to have a concave expansion slot about 2cm above the ground. Many times even need both sides to stay within the concave expansion joints, such as walk-in closets, the opposite side of the wood veneer, siding, etc.. Locking flooring encounter such situations, it will face the problem of not being able to buckle down, as shown in the figure.
T&G flooring can be installed normally in such scenarios as.
In such scenarios, that to do without grommet locking flooring installation. It will need to be designed in advance. If it is a cabinet, you can customize a cover plate, first install the floor, and then install the file (similar to skirting). If it is a wood veneer, then the inline height to do high, later paste wood veneer and then cover the floor seam.

2. The contact elevation does not need to leave expansion joints
It is easier to handle in this case. Just need to ensure that the cut surface can be kept flat and straight with the contact surface can be. And regardless of the locking flat buckle can achieve the installation effect, the locking buckle from top to bottom installation only need to cut out a chamfer can be.
