Installation Instructions


EverBase Flooring is easy to install and remove and is designed to be transported efficiently and compactly in pre-assembled sheets, on pallets.

Sections are typically stored on standard 40” x 48” pallets and transported on-site using a forklift or a truck with a lift gate.

Our EverBlock Transport Cart may be used to efficiently transport flooring within a facility or around an event site.

Connecting Floors

Instructions below are for the EBF1, EBF2 and EverDance.

Step One

To begin, simply remove the first flooring sheet from the pallet and place in one corner of the floor to be installed. Be sure the connector loops, which can be found on two sides of each sheet, are always facing toward the inside of the floor to be built (towards where the flooring will eventually be installed).

This is so that the adjacent connectors can easily slide into position over the loops and then snapped down and engaged.

Step Two

Place the next flooring section adjacent to the prior one, with the connectors positioned in the same direction as the prior sheet (loops facing toward the direction of install), such that the male and female connectors are ready to be engaged between sheets.

We suggest working in lines, or rows, completing each subsequent row before starting the next line. This will prevent drifting or misalignment of your floor, which can occur on larger installations. If you have an oversized installation (stadium flooring for example) you can work simultaneously in rows and keep installing such that the prior row is further along in progress by about 5 sheets (20ft or so) than the next row. Several teams can work in lines, one just behind the prior.

Step Three

Use your foot to nudge flooring over to the first panel, such that the male clips ride onto the female loops. Sections are designed to self-align when nudged together.

It is helpful to use the open “L” space in the corner formed by 3 sections (prior row and next row) to help guide placement of the next sheet. You can use your feet to nudge or kick sections into the open space of the “L” so that it is ready for connection on two sides. The male nub will ride up over the loops with a slight push or nudge with your feet.

Step Four

Use a backwards kick with your heel to engage the male clip into the female loop. Kick backwards towards the loop and over the clip.

To connect flooring sections, press down firmly on the area near the male snap connector when positioned over the loop, depressing it into the opening of the loop. Press down until you feel a slight click, indicating that the connector is engaged. While the connectors are designed to self-guide into the receiver loop, due to ground variation, you may need to jiggle the connector area, using your foot, pressing down, until it engages. It is best to use a sudden, quick motion when connecting sections. Use a backwards kick at a roughly 45 degree angle to engage the clip into the loop.

Dismantling Floors

Method 1: Tipping Sections To Disconnect

EverBlock Flooring is designed to dismantle quickly, by simply tipping the desired floor section back about 45% until it disconnects from the adjacent section. Preferred section sizes for transport and storage are 3ft x 4ft and 3ft x 3ft.

When tipping up sections of floor for disconnection, be sure to place weight on the side of the floor that contains the connector loop, while pulling up at an angle on the side that contains the spring connector tab, thus disengaging in.

By lifting the flooring section, such that the section begins to tip at the seam that is being detached, the connector locks begin to disengage, fully detaching when the floor is tipped to about 45 degrees.

Method 2: Angling Sections To "Unzip"

The second method of disconnecting flooring sections is utilized primarily when getting a side seam started. This method involves bending flooring sections backwards, such that they dis-engage and disconnect when they reach about 30%. This is the opposite of Method 1, which involves tipping flooring sections upwards and off the floor.

In order to bend sections backwards, it is important to slightly lift sections off the floor and bend backwards at the seam line, slowly working your way along the line as the sections disengage. Lower the looped side downwards as you continue to disconnect the section.

It is preferable to utilize Method 1 where possible as this is a speedier method.

Finishing With Edging

Installing Edging

Utilize edging in areas where people are coming onto and off of your floor. For dance floors this is usually the full perimeter of the floor, while for game courts and basements it is usually only at entrances to a room.

Installing and removing edging is similar to connecting tiles, except that the edging only connects on one side of the flooring.

To install edging, position a male or female edge piece, such that the opposite type of connector is aligned with the flooring connector on one side of the module at the area you need edging.

Insert the male snap tabs into the female loop until it "clicks" and the edging is engaged.

We offer male, female, and corner edge pieces that are designed to attached to the floor module using the same connection system as the module itself.

To remove edging, simply tip the edging at a 45% angle to detach.

method 1 of dismantling

Corner Edging

The corner pieces are designed to slot into the intersection of to edge pieces and utilize a "T" connector system.

To install corners, simple raise the two edge pieces slightly, allowing you to slide the corner piece into position, with the T aligned with the channel on the side of each edge piece.

Slide the edging into position such that the T is slid completely into the channel, engaging it with the edging pieces.

To remove edging, simply tip the edging at a 45% angle to detach.
