LAMINATE

Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is not a real wood floor but a high quality photographic image of wood. This is placed onto a HDF core board and is coated with a melamine wear layer. It is this wear layer which makes laminate flooring extremely hardwearing and much less liable toClick in 32 laminate floor scratch than a real wood finish and makes laminate ideal for those with a busy and hectic home life due to these properties and also the ease of maintenance.

When you choose a laminate floor you need to be aware of the different grades and construction methods available. Laminate is graded from AC1 - AC6 with the latter being ideal for use in very heavy commercial installations. As for the construction then laminate is produced either by Direct Pressure Laminate or High Pressure Laminate. 

Installation is also easier thanks to the click systems, the planks just click together with no need for glue, nails etc. Laminate is ideal for use in all rooms of the home or office with the exception of wet rooms such as bathrooms and shower rooms.
