    AC3 Laminate Flooring Selection

    With dozens of flooring designs to choose from, you can find a floor that matches your wear needs; as well as a stunning look! Your home can instantly be transformed when you install laminate flooring with an AC3 rating.

    AC3 Laminate Flooring - Use and Benefits

    A lot of people assume that because a certain laminate is thicker or has a longer warranty, that it is more durable and longer-lasting. This is not necessarily the case. That is why the European Producers of Laminate Flooring (EPLF) has developed the Abrasion Rating System also called AC Rating. Every laminate is rated based on a series of rigorous tests, including tabor abrasion test, burn resistance, impact resistance, stain resistance, and swelling under moist conditions. EPLF adopted a standard based rating which helps buyers understand the differences in durability among laminate flooring products.

    When you are looking for laminate flooring the very first question you should ask is "What is the AC Rating for this floor."

    For higher traffic choose higher AC number, this way you can safely enjoy your new floor for years to come without worry.

    AC3 laminate flooring is suitable for all residential applications. From your bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens, and even entry ways. An AC3 rating makes a terrific floor for the active household.

    Floors with an AC3 rating are the most popular choice for any residential applications. You should know that AC3 has two subcategories AC3/23 - suitable for heavy residential traffic and AC3/31 - ideal for use in heavy residential and light commercial spaces.

    Active residential areas, as well as light commercial spaces will benefit from the installation of laminate flooring with an AC3 rating.
