Vinyl Plank Flooring and Vinyl Rigid Planks
Vinyl Plank flooring is an outstanding reproduction of the timber look with the benefits of great function at a more affordable cost. Generally vinyl plank flooring (also known as LVT – luxury vinyl tiles) is supplied in dimensions similar to laminate flooring of approximately 1.2 to 1.5 metre lengths.
The installation of this product requires preparation of the concrete subfloor with a feather coat screed to ensure it is flat and ready for the vinyl planks to be installed on.
The vinyl plank floor is then adhered to the screed giving the presentation of a timber floor. The floor is ready to walk on 24 hours after installation.
Vinyl Plank Flooring has some great benefits over other timber flooring options;
- it is very quiet underfoot unlike the “clicking” sound that can be associated with laminate flooring
- it is softer underfoot than other hard flooring options
- it is 100% waterproof and suitable for installation in wet areas such as bathrooms and laundries
- it is well priced in comparison to other timber flooring options
Rigid Plank flooring is a more recent innovation of standard vinyl plank flooring. Essentially this product is a blend of laminate flooring and vinyl plank flooring. The planks are stiff making them more suitable for installation without the need for feather screeds used in normal vinyl plank flooring whilst the vinyl top layer still ensures the product is 100% water proof making this product the perfect mix between laminate and vinyl plank floors.
