About Laminate wood flooring
The highest quality of laminate wood flooring offers the look of a real wood floor, but a floor that is much easier to install, and which is considerably cheaper. Another great advantage of laminate wood flooring is that it is very durable, and extremely easy to clean & maintain.
Laminate wood flooringcome with cores ranging from 6mm up to 12mm. The thicker core offers more stability and less vulnerable to buckling or lifting. Laminate flooring gets it’s very convincing look from a high resolution picture of real wood which is protected under a very durable layer of hard resin, which can be textured to further replicate the feel and look of a heavily grained real wood floor.
All respected manufacturers of laminate wood flooring follow guidelines set by the AC testing standards. These testlaminate wood flooring in areas such as staining, impact, burning, water absorption, and abrasion. Laminate floors are given an AC rating ranging between 1 and 5. If a laminate wood floor does not have an AC rating it certainly doesn’t represent a wise investment.
Cheaper laminate wood flooring is widely available but often with no AC rating, a very low AC rating of 1 or 2 and constructed with a very cheap core material. An AC rating of just 1 would only be suitable for light domestic use, for example, a bedroom where foot traffic is light. The toughest laminate flooring will get an AC rating of 5, and is suitable for flooring of commercial properties with heavy foot traffic like a public building or department store and these often come with commercial guarantees.
Although you will find extremely competitive prices on all our laminate wood floors, these are a minimum AC rating of 3 and are often only a little more per square metre than those cheap laminate wood products.
