Laminate is considered to be one of the most versatile and economical flooring options that can be used for both residential and commercial projects. It is suitable for use in a wide variety of areas such as kitchens, hallways and bedrooms as well as dining and living room areas. Our Summit range is available in both 8mm and 12 mm thickness.
The biggest consideration when selecting a thinner plank vs a thicker plank will be cost vs durability, as well as flooring longevity and so we offer our Elite range is both 8mm and 12mm thick planks.
Our Elite 8mm AC4 product is available in a selection of 10 photo-realistic timber print colours:
6 in EIR finish and 4 in Crystal finish.
Embossed – In – Register (EIR) is a manufacturing process that intensifies the depth, texture and authentic look by embossing the surface to match the woodgrain pattern of the print film. Crystal finish is a more subtle, horizontal brushed texture that runs the length of the plank. Both finishes capture all the authentic character, warmth and charm of real timber boards, but at a fraction of the cost.
The AC rating (abrasion class rating) is the international standard grading which measures impact resistance, stain resistance, swelling under moisture, and also includes a Tabor Abrasion Test. The rating scale goes from AC1 through to AC5, with the higher the number associated with better quality laminate floors. AC4 rated laminate flooring is designed for commercial applications with moderately intense traffic. Ideal for small shops and offices. This range reflects a commercial quality floor covering but at a slightly lower cost than the 12mm thick plank.
