Prestige: High End Resilient Vinyl
Each layer has been thermally pressed by means of innovative technologies for ultimate performance.
Resilient flooring is a type of flooring which is designed to be durable, resistant to stains and water, and comfortable to stand and work on. That is why some call it the “Waterproof Flooring”. There are a wide range of styles within the resilient flooring category.
The most common types of resilient flooring are made from materials like cork, vinyl, linoleum, and rubber. These materials are all known for being extremely sturdy, and they also possess a natural springiness, especially when installed over a sprung subfloor. Springy flooring is much more comfortable to stand on, making resilient flooring a popular choice for kitchens, hospitals, retail stores, and other environments where people spend a lot of time on their feet. Cork and rubber are especially good for this, providing support and a springy surface which is enjoyable to walk on.
Another common trait of resilient flooring is resistance to stains, which includes food, dirt, and liquids. Some floors are treated with an upper layer of wax to make them even more stain resistant and easier to clean. This flooring also resists penetration by water, making it less likely to become a breeding ground for mold and mildew, which can make a home unhealthy to be in. It also reduces the risk of damage to the subfloor.
The materials used to make resilient flooring can also resist scuffing and damage from rolling furniture, dollies, or furniture which is dragged across the floor. They can also withstand high foot traffic, which can be very convenient in a home with children and pets. Flooring materials like cork and rubber are also used in dairies and stables, which goes to show you how sturdy they are; if they can support horses, they can handle busy human traffic.
Resilient flooring is a floating floor that uses a click system. So you won’t need to attach it to the subfloor. You simply angle your plank into position, slide the two lockstrips in place and press down to lock and form a watertight seal.
