----COMMING UP SOON ---
So let’s start....
Make your assembling parts & tools ready
Make sure that your floor is completely "leveled" proof it with your aluminum spirit level at least 2000mm length depends on Work Area.
If your Floor is crooked and not straight prepare it with "leveling ground" add the lev. ground to a bowl add water and mix it the mass should be a mix of fluid and thick, just tip out the fluid on the floor, remember it should flow in all the crooked and broken floor areas close holes and slices. !
Then Let it Dry for at Least 10hrs depending on your thickness ... normally we say DRYOUT TIME per cm (10mm) a Week!
Make sure the floor is completely FLAT after the filling nivilation "Sanded Smooth" use Scratch Paper to remove ANY irregularities. After the Floor is dry completely leveled and scratched ready for floor tiling , Use a Paint Roll and roll on your Ground Fluid like we did in the Video... let it Dry again for 1 Day (2:10 min)
Now all should be Dry and Flat Smoothed and Straight!
So let’s think about our coordination of the Alutracks
Make a hand drawing, or on PC, ask your GF, Let your Wife Decide or ask your Mother whatever ;)
Paste the Tracks down on the floor to get a View mark with a Pen, or just work and fit the Tiles directly to the Alu Bars like we did! (4:10 min)
so let’s mix the tile adhesive with the Mixing Paddle, if you don’t have one you can use your big ladle to mix it, add the water to an bowl then add the powder follow exactly in this direction FIRST THE WATER THEN THE POWDER !
Use the Tooth Spatula to apply the adhesive to the Floor (4:12 min)
the Adhesive to an area of about "a little more" than 3 full tiles. !
Add one tile after the other, relaxx, slowly Think-look-Check, don´t forget the Tile Crosses to hold the Symmetric Line and straightness, depending on your wanted interstice, you need to use specific Tile crosses or wood spares of 1-2-3-4-5mm Based on your Wishes .!
Pat the Tiles carefully down in position "XYZ" all directions use the Spirits level in X and Y direction. After you’ve placed all the Tiles with the Tracks let it rest again for at least 24hrs.
After your Floor is completely dried out and you can walk on it, Best case 48hrs at least, i was walking on it after 12hrs already but it’s not to recommend ;)
We can Start with the tiles grouting Process, follow our Best Grouting Tips for floor Tiling,
How to Grout Tiles?
Pretty Easy just mix the Tile Grouting Material with water "again > first add the Water to a Bowl then add the Tile Grouting Powder to it and Mix it with your mixing Paddle machine. !
Make sure the mixture have the consistence of a Potato Purée or mash.
Massage it well-fed into the tile joints!
Now we are coming to LED Lightning Section.:
After you placed all your Tiles and Alutracks in Position clean out the Tracks remove all irregularities.
Use Double sided Self-adhesive Tape from elektric-junkys.com, or buy LED Strips from us which have the Adhesive already on the LED Lights Assembled.. Please check that before!
So Let´s Think again ... "LED Variation, and formation" Power consumption, Power Placement Area, Controller Placement area!
We were using about 4PCS > 3 Meters lines as you can see in the Video
