Some of the advantages of our Summit range of laminate flooring include:
– Less expensive than tiles or natural stone
– Less expensive to install.
– As a manufactured product, it does not have the natural defects that can be found in real timber.
– It’s durable and easy to maintain.
– Eco-friendly – E0 rating meaning it is formaldehyde free.
Our Summit 8mm AC5 product is available in a selection of nine photo-realistic timber print colours in EIR finish only.
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. AC5 laminate flooring is designed for high-traffic commercial areas like department stores, shopping centres and office buildings. It has a tough finish that can withstand the most abuse.
