Laminate flooring and mobility in commercial settingsLaminate floors are great options for businesses. Not only do they look professional, last long, cost less, and provide physically disabled customers ease of movement, but they also come with an excellent commercial warranty.
A few of the top laminate products for these types of commercial applications are from Alloc HPL (High Pressure Laminate) product lines. These products include Alloc Commercial, Alloc Commercial Stone, and Alloc Original laminate flooring. These Alloc floors have a patented aluminum locking system which really gives the joints extra support, allowing them to withstand up to 1000lb/ft. The Commercial and Commercial Stone products have an AC6 durability rate, and the Original has an AC5 durability rating, which is the highest in the industry. All of this combined with an attached underlayment, water resistant overlay, and wax impregnated edges make these floors a top recommendation. To learn more about this Collection, click here.
There are numerous reasons why people choose laminate flooring over other traditional commercial flooring for their business or office, especially when that business or office gets a decent amount of traffic from wheelchairs. A few of the reasons include:
- Superior fade resistant material
- More durable construction
- Easier to install as well as replace
- Great commercial warranties
Wheelchairs wear down flooring much faster than regular foot traffic. It’s important to choose flooring that will hold strong against the extra weight and stress that wheelchairs and scooters can have. If something does damage to the laminate flooring, it may be covered by a commercial warranty. Many of the top products carry 5 year commercial warranties for joint damages, defects, fading, wear, and more.
In order for a business to take advantage of these warranties, the laminate flooring must be properly installed. It is very important to install subflooring correctly to provide the necessary base and support that mobility devices require. In addition to this, the actual laminate flooring needs to be installed the right way too. The flooring planks are designed to work together, supporting weight evenly throughout the surface. Faulty installation can lead to stress points and unnecessary damage to the floors. Incorrectly installing either the subfloor or the laminate floor can void any commercial warranty. Be certain you understand the installation process. If you have any questions, check the FAQs page, or contact an expert at Bestlaminate to assist you.
Mobility devices are heavy and increase the wear and stress placed on floors. Laminate flooring is an excellent choice for homes, businesses, and offices that get traffic from wheelchairs, scooters, and more. There are many advantages and benefits of using laminate flooring stated above, but always remember that these types of floors must be installed correctly. If they are not, premature damage may occur that is not covered by the warranties.
