Laminate flooring is constructed of 4 layers; wear, design, core, and the back layer. Each layer serves a distinct purpose and are fused together using high heat and intense pressure. Below is a breakdown of these layers.
- Back Layer: bottom layer; responsible for protecting the plank against moisture and balances the floor.
- Core Layer: above the back layer; is a durable, high-density board that protects from indentations and moisture.
- Design Layer: above the core layer; has a high-resolution photograph of the floor’s surface appearance.
- Wear Layer: top layer; is a clear layer that is made of aluminium oxide that protects against fading, stains, and surface burns.
Laminate makes for an extremely durable product because of its multi-layer construction. While laminate flooring is fairly durable and meant to last for years, it can scratch under pressure.
Laminate’s durability allows for the absorption of heavy traffic, making it an ideal flooring choice for active families with kids and pets running around.
Waterproof laminate is flooring designed to keep moisture from soaking into the material, staining it or causing it to swell and buckle. We have several brands that offer a waterproof laminate, including the Eco Flooring Swish range – this flooring will withstand normal household spills up to 48 hours.
