Elevate Your Business with Commercial LVT Flooring

If you crave the timeless beauty of hardwood, stone, or ceramic tile but need a budget-friendly option, look no further than commercial luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring. This waterproof, durable alternative mimics upscale flooring looks at a fraction of the cost with endless design possibilities.

From boutiques to medical facilities, yoga studios to salons, commercial LVT enhances any professional space. Its superior performance characteristics make it an exceptional choice for high-moisture, high-traffic businesses like bakeries, gyms, and daycares.

What is Commercial LVT Flooring?
Commercial LVT has revolutionized traditional vinyl into a premium product five times thicker than outdated sheet vinyl. Softer underfoot yet incredibly durable, LVT realistically emulates hardwood, stone, and tile visuals through advanced printing and texturing.

LVT vs LVP? What’s the Difference?
LVT (luxury vinyl tile) and LVP (luxury vinyl plank) are often used interchangeably. LVT recreates the looks of stone and ceramic tile in groutable squares, while LVPplanks capture the character of genuine hardwood. Aside from the shape and aesthetic, both are constructed identically from layered vinyl.

The Advantages of Commercial Vinyl Flooring
Affordable Luxury: LVT offers premium looks at budget-friendly prices compared to authentic hardwood, stone, or tile.

  • Waterproof Protection: Water-resistant and waterproof LVT options prevent moisture damage.
  • Comfort Underfoot: Multi-layered construction provides cushioned resilience and reduces noise.
  • Exceptional Durability: Resistant to stains, scuffs, chips and scratches even in high-traffic areas.
  • Antimicrobial Properties: LVT topcoats inhibit odor, microbial growth and product degradation.
  • Slip Resistance: Select products feature slip-resistant coatings ideal for busy workspaces.
  • Easy Installation: While proper subfloor prep is essential, LVT installs faster than other flooring types.

Installation Methods for Commercial LVT
Loose Lay: Tiles or planks lay freely over the subfloor using a rubber backing for simple replacement.

Glue Down: Adhesives bind the LVT directly to the subfloor per product temperature requirements.

Floating: Lockable tongue-and-groove edges click planks/tiles together above the subfloor.

What Sets Commercial LVT Apart?
Commercial-grade LVT boasts upgraded thickness around 20 mil versus 12 mil residential options. For extreme high-traffic areas, a 30-40 mil wear layer provides unbeatable longevity.

Distinct maintenance requirements and extended limited warranties differentiate commercial LVT products from their residential counterparts.
