If you are looking for the right flooring for the retail store, laminate flooring is the right choice! Laminate not only enhances the retail store visually, but it also meets all the requirements of everyday commercial store life.
However, pay attention to the service class of the laminate: Depending on the use of the floor, a higher service class is necessary. If you have found a suitable service class, you have the freedom to choose between different décors!
Is laminate flooring for the commercial stores robust enough?
Time and again, staff walk through the stores for views, fetch a coffee, or copy documents. Customers and employees enter the office wearing their outdoor shoes and bringing in the dirt. Chairs are rolled back and forth every day. Here and there, a pen falls onto the floor. An office floor must withstand many strains. Laminate is highly recommended for retail stores since its robustness is convincing.
Even though it is predominantly made of wood, laminate is much stronger than Engineered wood flooring. This is because the hard surface protects the flooring from scratches and dents. The HDF carrier material with an integrated Aqua Stop system also protects against swelling if a coffee cup topples over.
