Need a Flooring Solution for the Commercial Environment?

Choose Laminate Flooring!

The commercial environment is one that is faced with high traffic and as such, the flooring that you choose for such an environment must be highly durable. The flooring industry now caters to the commercial market by supplying heavy-duty laminate flooring designed for commercial applications. If you own a business premises and are looking for a low-cost flooring solution that can handle moderate to high traffic without needing too much in terms of maintenance, commercial laminate flooring is the solution. Of course, just like any other flooring type, laminate flooring comes in various quality grades.

The structure of commercial laminate must of a good quality. Commercial laminate flooring typically has the following 4 layers:

High-density fibreboard filler

This actually makes up the bulk of the laminate flooring material and is usually made of recycled materials.

Backing layer

This is the layer that makes contact with the subfloor when the laminate flooring is installed. It is also often referred to as a “balancing layer” in the flooring industry.

Decorative print layer

This is actually the surface of the floor that you see and as such, it is located above the fibreboard filler. This is actually a high-resolution photograph that can perfectly mimic any type of wood or stone – sometimes the surface can even be customised patterns.

Protective laminate layer

This is the layer that actually protects the decorative printed layer and must therefore be clear. It is heat fused to ensure its durability and provides a highly impenetrable barrier to liquid, dirt, minor scratches, scuffs and similar. Because of this layer, commercial laminate flooring is able to withstand high levels of traffic without showing wear and tear prematurely.

Commercial laminate flooring is convenient in that it won’t yellow when exposed to direct sunlight. This makes it the ideal flooring in public areas that receive a lot of natural light. They can also quite easily be cleaned with vacuuming and sweeping, and if there are spills and stains to deal with, a gentle wipe with a damp mop is all that is required.
