You might think of commercial laminate flooring as only a cost-effective option, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Laminate flooring gained popularity in the 1980s, and has taken the flooring world by storm. The reason is because commercial laminate flooring is easy to maintain, budget-friendly and a very versatile and durable product.
Laminate can be used anywhere from offices to airports, restaurants, retail and more. You can get a luxury look at a cost-effective price. Laminate flooring is also scratch resistant and will not fade even after years of exposure to direct sunlight. You might even be pleased to find out that laminate flooring is chemically resistant even towards chemicals such as acetone. In addition, laminate is burn resistant, which means you can install it right next to a fireplace without any worries at all. Even if any of the wood embers happen to fall onto the laminate floor, there will be no marks or discolorations.
Laminate is a popular option for commercial use because even high traffic and office chairs do not pose a threat to this durable floor. You can place felt pads or plastic caps under chair legs, and you should avoid sand or stones on the floor. On the other hand, laminate flooring is wear resistant when it comes to pets, you will not see any worn-through effects.
Another reason why laminate is perfect for commercial use is because it is fade resistant. This flooring option resists ultraviolet rays. This is good news for you because you know that the floor you install today will look the same years ahead.
If you deal with consistent and heavy impacts, laminate flooring is the right choice for you. This is because it is made of a High Density Fiberboard (HDF). As a result, it can withstand any long-term strain caused by chairs, tables, shoes, falling objects and more.
It is also a very versatile type of floor. Today’s commercial laminate can replicate the look of dozens of natural flooring products from natural hardwoods to natural stone and even ceramic. You might even be hard-pressed to tell the difference. There is also the fact that installation of a laminate floor is one of the easiest flooring projects you can take part of. Some of our more technologically advanced laminate floors are made so that you do not even have to use an adhesive. All you need to do is roll down a sheet of underlaying material and then snap the floor sections into one another. This is where you get not only a savings of money, but also a savings in time.
