Luxury Vinyl Flooring Types

Dry Back sample

Dry Back

Dry back, also known as glue down, requires an adhesive to affix the flooring directly to the subfloor. The planks are usually 2.0 – 3.5mm thick and, therefore, flexible. Gluing them down gives the floor stability, making dry-back LVT better for bigger rooms and high-traffic areas. This is a technical installation, and we recommend that professionals undertake it.

Click Luxury Vinyl Tiles

Click LVT is known as a floating floor, and the planks click together, much like a laminate floor. The planks are rigid and often have a built-in underlay, which makes the installation process straightforward. This type of flooring can be installed by people who are pretty ‘handy’, but for the best results, we recommend a professional installation.

Luxury Vinyl Tiles FAQ's:

lvt grey

What are the benefits of Luxury Vinyl Tiles?

The wear layer combined with the protective coating makes LVT incredibly durable! In addition, it can cope with a high level of footfall, and some ranges are commercially graded.

LVT is suitable for all rooms and all temperatures. It works with underfloor heating, and its UV resistance properties mean you can use it in conservatories as it is fade resistant. The product is also waterproof, so it is a perfect choice for kitchens and bathrooms where there might be more water spilling on the floor.

The protective wear layer will help prevent scuffs and scratches and makes the floor stain-resistant. In addition, the wear layer will stop the LVT from absorbing most household stains. LVT is incredibly low maintenance; use the care kit provided to keep your floor looking new.

The embossing process used to create the texture on the design gives the tiles or planks incredible textured detail, from the grain and knots in the wood to the natural lines found on stone or slate.

The artificial materials make LVT a much warmer and more cushioned option underfoot than stone tiles or wood.

What is LVT Flooring made from?

LVT is made up of multiple layers. Each luxury vinyl plank has a lightweight core, surrounded by other compacted layers that provide strength, stability, and support and help prevent indentations.

On the surface is a protection layer, which shields the floor from potential damage and provides scratch and stain resistance. Underneath the protection layer is a wear layer, which adds to the floor’s durability. Then there is a design layer, which gives the LVT its appearance. This is followed by an acoustic layer that minimises surface sound whilst adding comfort.

The result of these layers is an incredibly durable plank or tile with the appearance of natural wood or stone that can be laid in any room in your home.
