Industry Manuals

ATFA provides its members with exclusive access to nine vital industry manuals, each tailored to different aspects of the flooring industry. These FREE manuals include: Solid Timber, Problems, Causes and Remedial Measures, Laminate, Decking, Timber Species Guide, Engineered Flooring, Bamboo, Consumer Guide to Timber Flooring and Vinyl Based Plank Hybrid.

These resources not only detail the universally acknowledged requirements for floor installation but also serve as a touchstone for ATFA members in their daily operations. From solid timber to engineered, laminate, bamboo, and hybrid plank flooring, there’s a dedicated ATFA manual for each. Additionally ATFA has guidelines for consumers and a publication covering flooring problems.

Given the specialised nature of floor installation, which is beyond the typical understanding of the general public, these industry standards often play a pivotal role in legal contexts. They help in determining the reasonableness of practices when addressing homeowners’ concerns.

Please note, ATFA publications are protected by copyright, they are for use by members and not for further distribution or website posting.
