You can find LVT flooring everywhere from hotel lobbies, schools to offices. It has vastly become one of the most loved and popular flooring options. LVT is designed to replicate hard surface flooring such as wood or stone, and at the same time provide way more valuable benefits. You can bifurcate it into – planks and tiles. It uses a real photographic print film and a clear vinyl layer that open up an array of design concepts. Even the most trained eyes can’t differentiate between LVT from the product that it replicates.
To begin with, luxury vinyl tiles are made from several layers of PVC vinyl. The PVC is an amalgamation of various compounds that enhance the hardness. Then in the next step, these multiple sheets of PVC vinyl are warily compressed by a rolling process, suspended in liquid. After they are dried out through an application of heat and air, it produces tough sheets of vinyl. The top layer is capable of featuring an embossed finish, plus manufacturers can add a touch of realism to the top layer by adding depth which helps mimic the grooves commonly found in stone or wood.
LVT also has clear vinyl and urethane coating applied at the very end. After the manufacturing, it adds further protection to the product. It is then compressed together and a decorative printed vinyl is bonded to the surface which enhances the warmth and comfort. Moreover, rigid LVT boards are more often than not thicker in nature and usually have a click system to make DIY installation smoother.
You can merely install LVT in two days, either with the help of glue or with a loose-lay floor. If you opt for a loose-lay flooring system then it is possible to use LVT with minimal surface preparation. With this solution in place, flooring installation costs and time can be significantly reduced.
LVT consists of a softer surface when compared to any other flooring materials such as wood or stone, which is more comfortable underfoot and sound-reducing. It is a very significant trait for several facilities.
LVT’s traditional counterparts like stone and hardwood flooring are way more expensive. And, if you are aiming for a durable alternative at a lower cost then LVT is the way to go.
The life of a flooring surface is hard, hence, opting for a flooring material that protects against mishaps is of paramount importance. LVT is easy to clean, resistant to nature, and won’t chip- thus making it an ideal choice for kitchens, bathrooms, offices, and areas below ground level.
In the end, we hope that the aforementioned pointers provided you with a better understanding of what LVT flooring is and its benefits. Now, if you are planning to install LVT at your home or offices, then head to our website and choose the perfect option for you from our wide range of products.
