How much time can be saved by installing Fast Flooring products?

What tools are required on-site for a Fast Flooring product installation?
You will only need standard installation tools to fit the floor coverings in this collection, with the addition of a mallet for Allura Puzzle, Allura Colour Plus and Colorex Plus, a roll of Modul’up unique single-sided tape system when fitting Modul’up products and a roll of Forbo’s double-sided tape when fitting Surestep Fast Fit. You won’t need to bring any heavy rollers on site either as they are not required.
