    Dont do it.

    Climate panels are not made to be fastened directly to a concrete floor. youll need to fasten a 3/4" plywood "subfloor" then fasten the climate panels to that. I have done dozens of jobs with them and have run into this problem, its just what you have to do unfortunately. And definately do not try to glue them haha, heat + glue = a mess and damaged finished floor. Also before you put the plywood down make sure a vapor barrier is installed.
