Sheet Vinyl and Vinyl Tiles

vinyl flooring

Vinyl flooring is one of the most affordable resilient flooring solutions available. Depending on the wear surface you choose, materials costs can be up to 70% less than other flooring materials. Versatility, low maintenance and high durability make vinyl a popular flooring choice.

There are two types of vinyl floorcovering. Homogeneous Vinyl floorcovering is made of one single layer offering depth and vibrancy of colour. Heterogeneous Vinyl floorcovering is a multi layer product which has a wealth of expressive patterns with unlimited design possibilities reinforced to reduce the cost of maintenance. This allows vinyl flooring to capture the look and feel of any natural flooring material with the added benefits only found in vinyl flooring.

Both sheet vinyl and vinyl tiles are less expensive than ceramic or wood and both are fairly stain resistant, an excellent choice for busy lifestyles. With vinyl flooring, you can create the ideal environment; design minded and functional, both essential characteristics in offices, schools, shops, healthcare and in fact in any commercial project.

Sheet vinyl has many benefits and options. It comes with varying thickness, with the thickest being the most durable. It is also coloured or patterned and is most often used in high moisture areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and laboratories, as it can be applied wall to wall, and in high traffic commercial areas. With small children around, a vinyl floor can take the worry out of accidental spills. In remodelling, vinyl flooring can resolve the height problems that can occur around door jambs, and built in appliances.

Vinyl flooring also offers different product levels. Specialised products are available with beautiful designs that provide unique sound reduction properties and excellent acoustic performance and can be applied wall to wall and to ceilings. There is slip resistant vinyl suitable for around sinks, showers, splash areas and pool surrounds. In such wet conditions, a studded surface gives a firm grip but also offers comfort when walking on it. There is even a vinyl that is electrostatic, suitable for all areas where static discharges can cause problems.

Vinyl tiles are suitable for both residential and commercial purposes. They are easily applied by handy people but the thicker, more luxurious forms are best applied by a professional. Vinyl tiles can come in a variety of colours and designs, from a simple ceramic look to more sophisticated designs. The more expensive tiles will be thicker, heavier, and may boast various surface textures such as slate, wood, or quarry tiles. Commercially used vinyl tiles are called vinyl composite tiles and are more often solid in colour or lightly coloured with flecks.
