Installation Instructions

Install with Confidence.

FlashCove Prefabricated Base can be installed quickly and easily using readily available installation tools and adhesives, keeping projects on time and on budget.

The base tucks neatly in behind a standard 12 mm (1/2”) doorjamb and the inside and outside corners will be mitre-cut on site to ensure a perfect fit.

When the base is installed according to the written specifications that we provide, all seams are sealed (as per the flooring manufacturer’s recommendations), and all open edges are sealed, the innovative design of the FlashCove Prefabricated Base will result in a superior sanitary base installation.*

Maintain with Ease.

Maintaining a FlashCove Prefabricated Base is easy.

The tighter radius allows cleaning equipment to get closer to the wall and clean more thoroughly without risk of damaging or puncturing the base.
