1. Vinyl | Composition

vinyl floor is a flexible plastic (PVC) flooring composed of several layers: the foundation layer, the fibre glass layer, the middle layer, the image layer, the top layer and finally the UV coating. The foundation layer provides structural strength over the entire floor. The durability of the floor is dependent on the thickness of the top layer and on the strength of the foundation structure. Lamett vinyl contains fibre glass, which provides extra stability.

 

2. Vinyl | Installation

Vinyl may be installed in damp rooms such as the kitchen, bathroom and cellar. 
Please note: Not suitable for rooms that are continuously immersed in water such as saunas or swimming pools.

3. Vinyl | Advantages and disadvantages

Advantages

  • Extremely thin planks, therefore ideal for renovations.
  • Quick and inexpensive glue down installation
  • A utility knife, tape and a metal ruler are sufficient.
  • The planks can be cut to size with a utility knife - no dust!
  • 100% waterproof
  • 100% recyclable
  • Sound-insulating: quiet
  • Anti-allergenic
  • No release of formaldehyde into the air - a healthy indoor climate.
  • Stain-resistant
  • Easy to maintain
  • Due to the thin surface, the subfloor must be very even. If not, any imperfections will be visible in the flooring.
  • PVC is less resistant to scratching.
  • Vinyl is temperature-sensitive and can therefore shrink or expand.

Disadvantages

  • Due to the thin surface, the subfloor must be very even. If not, any imperfections will be visible in the flooring.
  • PVC is less resistant to scratching.
  • Vinyl is temperature-sensitive and can therefore shrink or expand.

4. Vinyl | Wear-resistance
Vinyl floors are suitable for residential and commercial use (homes, projects, public spaces,…). In addition to other technical factors, it is primarily the thickness of the wear layer that influences the wear class:

  • Class 23/31: Private use (wear layer ≥ 0.30 mm)
  • Class 32/41: Project use (wear layer ≥ 0.40 mm)
  • Class 33/42: Industrial use (wear layer ≥ 0.55 mm)
  • Class 34/43: heavy industrial use (wear layer ≥ 0.70 mm)
