DANCE FLOORING: Rentals Installation & Care
Taping the floor
Unroll all the rolls of floor in place, allow the floor to lie flat as long as possible so that any creases or wrinkles will settle out prior to taping the floor. You should position the first piece of floor, tape one end of the floor, then stretch the floor lengthwise and tape the opposite end. Generally it is best to start at the downstage or most visible edge, so that you have the cleanest and straightest edge there. Position the second piece of floor, leaving an 1/8" (3mm) gap to allow for expansion and contraction, and tape one end, stretch and tape the opposite end. Run your vinyl or cloth floor tape along the length of the seam, covering the gap and attaching to both pieces of floor.   Repeat this process for all pieces of floor. You can then run an additional piece along the edges to provide a more finished appearance.

To tape the floor for longer installations, you may want to tape each roll to the floor as well as to the adjoining piece. To do this, tape one end, stretch and tape the opposite end of your first piece of Marley. Then tape both the lengthwise seams of the piece. Repeat with the next piece of Marley, so that one side is taped to the taped Marley and the other side is taped to the floor. Continue with all the remaining pieces of floor. When you are finished taping the floor, it should be cleaned before use.
