Further details

Finishing
All Free Time products Free Time undergo a rigid seasoning cycle of the wood species. After installation, the floor must be cleaned and necessarily be treated with the special protective oil Sundeck Oil Gazzotti in order to ensure proper preservation of the flooring over time. The Free Time products are not guaranteed if they are not laid following the instruction in the product sheet or if the surface is not treated with Sundek Oil. Over time the visible part of wood, exposed to atmospheric agents, will become slightly grey and can show some small cracks. Therefore they must not be considered as defects, but as a natural characteristic of wood kept outdoors.
Range
Free time range is composed of 2 different products:
Double Face Ipè planks
Ipè planks in solid wood with grained surface for outdoor use. Over time this wood species has proved to be suitable for contact with the outdoors.
The longer sides are processed with double grooves and rounded in order to make them safe for walking.
Installation may be carried out with hidden clips in stainless steel or with visible screws by fastening the planks on floating slats.
One face is milled to obtain an anti-skid effect. This makes the floor appropriate for pool edges, for example. The other face is smooth to highlight at maximum the wood grain, thus obtaining a perfectly natural appearance.
Double Face Teak planks
Teak planks in solid wood with thermal treatment for major stability and a soft honey tone, which when laid, is very contrasted. This contrasts decrease with the use of Sundek Oil snd the natural effect of sun exposure.
The longer sides are processed with double grooves and rounded in order to make them safe for walking.
Installation may be carried out with hidden clips in stainless steel or with visible screws by fastening the planks on floating slats.
One face is milled to obtain an anti-skid effect. This makes the floor appropriate for pool edges, for example. The other face is smooth to highlight at maximum the wood grain, thus obtaining a perfectly natural appearance.
The Teak Thermic planks come from certified forests.
Decking installation
Free Time can be installed on all types of subfloor where an adequate slope has been provided to drain rainwater.
If the flooring is directly placed on a waterproof sheath it is best to place the slats on special fixed or adjustable feet with rounded edges in order to avoid possible scratching on the sheath.
Installation on grass requires that the area to be paved is flattened beforehand and two layers of non woven fabric be inserted to reinforce the zones and keep grass from growing back between the planks.

Installation of Free Time Planks with invisible clips
They are laid by fastening them on floating slats. The slats may be lifted from the subfloor by placing them on special feet whose height is adjustable to maintain the flooring leveled enabling the outflow of water and the passage of piping.
A space must be left between the floating slats. This space must not exceed 30 cm. The planks are fastened in correlation to the slats (note that each short end should be locked on a piece of slat) with Gazzotti stainless steel invisible clips and stainless steel flathead screws.
The distance between one plank and another is determined by the clip, while alignment must be checked before final fastening.
Completed the installation, the correctly cleaned Free Time flooring must be treated with the special protective Gazzotti Sundeck Oil in order to ensure proper preservation of the flooring over time.

Installation of Free Time Planks with visible screws
They are laid by fastening them on floating slats.
The slats (available in market) may be lifted from the subfloor by placing them on special feet whose height is adjustable to maintain the flooring leveled enabling the outflow of water and the passage of piping.
It is necessary to leave 4-5 mm of space between the planks on the longer side in order to enable water drainage.
It is necessary to put floating slats with a distance not exceeding 30 cm.
The planks must be fastened in correlation to the slats (note that each short end should be locked on a piece of slat) on the upper side, with two screws, after having pre-drilled to avoid cracks and obtain optimal look.
It is necessary to use stainless steel countersunk screws. If a regular screw layout is requested, the installer should proceed with ship deck pattern.
Completed the installation, the correctly cleaned Free Time flooring must be treated with the special protective Gazzotti Sundeck Oil in order to ensure proper preservation of the flooring over time.
Decking Maintenance
When installing, all Free Time floors must be treated with Gazzotti Free Time Sundeck Oil, a specific protection product made of natural and synthetic oils, additives for the absorption on UV rays and special anti-aging components against the deterioration of the wood. This treatment protects the wood also from insects.
During time the flooring tends to absorb the applied oil and assume a “dried out” touch: this is the sign that the treatment with Sundeck Oil needs to be repeated.
