    Product Information Altro cut-to-shape flooring is one of the best ways to ensure your DIY van conversion gives that wow-factor! Used extensively throughout the professional van conversion industry - there really isn't a better choice of flooring for your very own adventure-wagon. The Headlines Altro CONTRAX - 12 colour choices & 0.9mm wearing layer. Altro WALKWAY - 23 colour choices & 2mm wearing layer. Cut to shape options for VW T5,T6 & Ford Transit Custom. All colours and choices sold per-metre for all conversions - We even have a guide for making your own cut-to-shape floors here! The DIY Guide This guide is for installation of the Altro cut-to-shape flooring INSIDE the van. Prerequisites So, there are a couple of tasks that need to be complete prior to starting the fitting. The windows should already be installed. The walls should be ply-lined & carpeted. The floor should then be ply-lined and secured in-place. Now, you're ready to start! Tools & Products Cut-to-shape Altro flooring. BLUE High- temperature contact adhesive Solvent cleaner Length of timber the approximate width of the van. A piece of cardboard. A second pair of hands/feet within shouting distance will not go amiss. PPE - appropriate gas-mask & gloves highly recommended. Figure 1: Fitting the Altro cut-to-shape flooring is effectively a two-step process. Step 1 is to bond the front half of the floor & step 2 is to bond the rear half. Step-By-Step Clean down the ply-lined floor. Ensure all stones/debris are removed prior to overlaying the Altro. Place the Altro cut-to-shape floor inside the van and position it carefully. When you're happy with the positioning. Place the timber horizontally across the van just in front of the wheel arches. Now ask your friend to place their spare pair of feet on the timber and slowly raise the front of the Altro until your friend can hold it upright in the air. Carefully spray the BLUE high temperature flooring adhesive on BOTH the ply floor and the underside of the Altro (use your cardboard to ensure you don't spray the adhesive on your carpeted walls/seats etc!). Allow the adhesive to go 'tacky'. Now slowly lower the Altro down, pressing it in to place. Starting at the timber-end & centre, then working your way forward & outwards towards the front seats of the van. At this point you will have the front half of the Altro stuck down and you'll be ready to repeat the process with the rear half of the van. Reposition your friend in the front of the altro (which is not bonded to the ply floor). Raise the rear half of the Altro until your friend can hold it upright in the air. Carefully spray the BLUE high temperature flooring adhesive on BOTH the ply floor and the underside of the Altro (use your cardboard to ensure you don't spray the adhesive on your carpeted walls/seats etc!). Allow the adhesive to go 'tacky'. Now slowly lower the Altro down, pressing it in to place. Starting at centre of the van, then working your way forward & outwards towards the rear doors of the van. Now get the kettle on, pour a cuppa, stand back & admire your handy-work! We hope you found this guide helpful. All feedback is welcomed. The Home Built Campers Team.
