Unlike traditional vinyl flooring, Luxury Vinyl, or LV, offers a photorealistic imaging layer that enable it to imitate the look of traditional stone or wood flooring, AND LV is available in long, narrow plank formats, such as 7" x 48" that helps eliminate seams and further mimic traditional wood floors.
Luxury Vinyl flooring satisfies Green building standards and earns LEED points in commercial applications with brands that are 100% vinyl.
Inherently more safety features by meeting a variety of safety codes such as commercial flammability codes and slip resistant requirements.
Simple damp mopping LV floors provides the ultimate in ease of maintenance.
While size options vary by manufacturer, many styles are available in 12 x 12”, 18 x 18”, 12 x 24” sizes, with plank shapes available in standard (3 x 36” 4.5 x 36) and extra-large widths (7 or 9’ widths).
LV floors are inherently water resistant, as well as almost completely impervious to wet spills.
LV floors floors are coated with urethane to enhance durability, making them scratch, stain, dent and scuff resistant.
Luxury Vinyl Flooring is particularly cost effective for both commercial and residential applications, yet offer the look and feel of rich, natural materials at a lower cost.
The multiple layers and resilient backing inherent in luxury vinyl flooring make LV tiles and planks more resillient and easier to stand on for long periods of time. LV also features a warmer feel than ceramic, making it more resilient than other hard surface floors.
interior designers have grown to prefer the design aesthetics of LV flooring in the last five years, offering amazing realism, INCLUDING distressed wood finishes, stone and slate tactile surface textures, and even woven textiles imbedded in the wear layers.
