Timestep must be removed from the pallet and stored in the vertical position immediately after receiving. It should always be unrolled or unraveled with outside/dance surface up. Never flip vinyl from side to side. Never grab or hold with one hand. Must be moved careful by multiple installers after acclimated to room temperature between 70° and 80°F. Timestep Black must be handled with extra care.
The ideal subfloor for Timestep is Springstep lV, Stagestep’s floating wood subfloor. Installation on concrete (or other rock-hard slabs) will not reduce shock. Installation on carpet can result in the floor “wrinkling” when working on it. Consult with Stagestep™ for the best results.
Sweep daily to remove coarse dirt. Clean weekly, using ProClean, a neutral detergent/degreaser that does not leave a residue. Stagestep™ offers a choice of non-slip products and FloorCare systems. For surface protection, we offer FloorShield Finish.
Do not use alcohol, ammonia, acetone, bleach, or solvents to clean surface. Consult with Stagestep™ prior to using any product not recommended. Direct exposure to sunlight can cause reduced life expectancy due to UV radiation. Change in temperature and humidity can negatively affect installation and non-slip characteristics.
“We are very happy with our Stagestep™ floors at our historic studios in New York City, so when we built our new extension in Long Island City, there was no question whom we would call first. Stagestep™’s SpringFlex subfloor systems and roll-out Super Timestep vinyl flooring are high quality, durable, and a tremendous value. They handled everything from selecting the most appropriate floor for our needs to installation. Our instructors and students have been dancing on our new floors for two months now and they are thrilled.”
