Yes, that refers to the clicking mechanism used in the floating floor installation technique. It is also used for waterproof vinyl flooring. Read on to learn more about installing luxury vinyl flooring.
Hovering over the subfloor
With a floating floor, the pieces click together and mat. Then the surface, in its entirety, hovers over the subfloor without adhesives.
The advantage of a floating floor is that the pieces can be easily picked up and moved, whether you go to another space. It's also a faster, easier, and less expensive installation.
Another advantage is that any subfloor, even concrete, is acceptable. It just needs to be clean, dry, and level.
It’s vital to look at the levels of foot traffic when considering a floating floor.
For instance, luxury vinyl flooring is often a favorite among restaurant designers, but these spaces are busy and active.
Glue-down may be preferred for eateries. Like Mannington, Hallmark, and Provenza, many companies offer glue-down and floating floors.
Additional benefits of luxury vinyl flooring
These floors are affordable with a high-end style. Images of wood, stone, and tile are taken in high definition, so they're clear and vibrant. Embossing and micro beveling add depth, dimension, and textured looks.
Luxury vinyl flooring is also ultra-durable. It's five times thicker than the original product and layered.
At the top is a transparent, strong, melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and dents. On top of that is a clear urethane finish that adds extra strength and shine. In addition, it's 100% waterproof, whether spilled on or submerged.
This vinyl is easy to care for with regular sweeping and periodic mopping. Just be sure to use a manufacturer-approved cleaner.
