What Makes Vinyl Flooring So Durable?
The wear layer is the top layer of protective clear PVC which covers the print-film photographic pattern of the vinyl and provides Vinyl Flooring with its well-known durability and its hard-wearing properties. The thicker the wear layer, the more durable your vinyl flooring will be.
Thickness Of Wear Layer
Durability level would depend on the thickness of the vinyl plank’s wear layer. Vinyl Plank is available in several different grades of thicknesses. The thicker grades are more appropriate for commercial applications, and the thinner ones are sufficient for domestic use. When the correct grade of vinyl flooring is selected for the appropriate settings and applications, vinyl flooring can last for many decades.
Benefit Of Thicker Wear Layer
An added benefit of a thick wear layer in Vinyl Planks allow the integration of more feature into the design, such as heavy embossment and beveled patterns. This provides more protection to the floor. It also confers more grip to the floor for the users which increases slip resistance thereby helping to reduce incidents of slips and falls. Embossed patterns and bevels also adds more realism to wood effect vinyl planks by mimicking the natural wood grain patterns and grooves.
