Vinyl (Plastic Carpets)
Durable and easy to clean.
Vinyld are easy to clean, durable, comfortable to stand and walk on, joint free and there are many patterns and colors to choose from. Usually they work in any space, and above all the prices are very reasonable.
Vinyls are varied in widths of 2, 3 and 4 meters, depending on supplier and collection. If you pick a mat that’s wide enough you won’t have to splice the floor. If you would get a splice you can fixate it with double-sided carpet tape. Besides, the splice needs to be welded with a special kind of welding which is a see-trough almost invisible thing. Plastic mats, also called vinyl mats, come with both textile backside as well as the more common PVC backside.
Vinyl floors with textile backside is somewhat softer and more quiet than other vinyl floors, but still they are just as easy to clean and just as durable as the ones with the PVC backside. Plastic mats with textile backside can be put in all dry spaces, and spaces with concrete underlay, like basements. The textile back allows the mat to breathe and makes it heat-reflective and heat insulating.
Usually when you lay out a vinyl floor with textile backside, you don’t have to rip out the existing floor for technical reasons. The textile back smoothes any unevenness’s in the under floor.
Plastic mats with the PVC backside is glued to the floor, the textile back mats mostly doesn’t have to be glued. Sometimes you “help” the mat with double-sided carpet tape.
“A vinylfloor is the most durable and easy cleaned floor there is.”
