This category represents flooring made from a range of materials including vinyl, linoleum, rubber, thermoplastic polymer, polyurethane or cork.
Engineered in several layers, its tough top layers can be made of vinyl, linoleum, rubber or thermoplastic polymer, polyurethane or cork, and also incorporate a printed film design.
Backing layers can be alternatively high density fibreboard, a rigid polymer with or without reinforcement, or a mineral mixture. A layer of an acoustic material such as cork or foam can be added, applied as a backing to act as an acoustic barrier or underlay. These create physical stability across a range of temperatures and makes it more tolerant of sub-floor conditions.
Made for glue free installation and with click joints, they can be configured in tile or plank form.
Commercial versions offer thermal insulation to reduce heat loss and fuel costs in large open spaces in retail stores and offices, contributing to Green Building programmes.
Overall, modular multilayer flooring is wear, stain, and water-resistant; naturally quiet to walk on and easy to maintain. Designed for the widest range of conditions, it can resist wear from the home environment to heavy commercial installations such as retail stores, withstanding the daily impact of equipment and people.
The products are produced in compliance with EN ISO 20326: 2018.
