CHOOSING THE RIGHT PRODUCT

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

By now you have probably heard of Vinyl Planks, Loose Lay, 5mm, 3mm, 2.5mm, Glue Down, Hybrid, Laminate, Bamboo, Engineered Flooring, etc and it all starts to get a little confusing. So let's clear the confusion and get down to  understanding where each product is used, and which product is right for your scenario.

Firstly, I don't endorse some of the products mentioned above, because I don't believe the pros outweigh the cons, and therefore for this exercise I will only focus on the products I endorse and not bore you with the negatives of some products.

Vinyl Planks come in quite a few shapes and sizes. They can be 2mm to 5mm thick, rectangular with timber designs or square with stone designs.

 

Loose Lay Vinyl Planks

 

Thickness:

4mm to 5mm

Composition:

Vinyl Planks are made of plastics, some planks are 100% virgin plastic and some will contain a percentage of recycled plastic. Loose lay planks generally have a layer of fibreglass matting to minimise stability.

Where to use:

Perfect for the home as they offer added comfort under foot. They can also be used in commercial areas but i recommend Fully Bonded installation in this circumstance.

Installation method:

Thicker products can be fully bonded or installed with a pressure sensitive glue. I prefer the pressure sensitive installation method because it allows you to replace a damaged plank anywhere on the floor within one minute. Pressure Sensitive glue does not set like a traditional glue, rather it will remain tacky for it's entire life, which provides just enough tack to stop your plank from moving with foot traffic. Loose Lay planks can also be laid without glue, but we recommend using pressure Sensitive installation method. Your planks should always be climatised before installation.

 

Fully Bonded Vinyl Planks

 

Thickness:

2mm to 4mm

Composition:

Vinyl Planks are made of plastics, some planks are 100% virgin plastic and some will contain a percentage of recycled plastic.

Where to use:

These planks are widely used in commercial areas to eliminate movement in high traffic areas. They can also be used in residential areas to minimise costs without compromising the look.

 

Installation method:

Thinner products must be fully bonded when installed. This means the glue used should be trowled on with a notch trowel and the glue will dry and set like a traditional glue, hence the term 'fully bonded'. Once the glue is set, the plank will not move, shrink or expand, and will be relatively difficult to replace a plank. Your planks should always be climatised before installation.

 

Hybrid  or Rigid Planks

 

Thickness:

5.5mm to 7mm

Composition:

 Hybrid planks are Stone Plastic Composite, generally they have a limestone high density solid core with an underlay attached.

Where to use:

Perfect for going over subfloors that aren't suitable for Vinyl Planks, such as Yellow Tongue Flooring & tiles.

Installation method:

Hybrid planks are a floating floor system and the planks are locked together with a click system. They cannot be glued.
