It is a durable, low-maintenance, and easy-to-install flooring option that offers an array of elegant design choices. Now, couple this with a budget-friendly cost, and RVF takes its rightful place as a top flooring contender.
So, if you are tired of the flooring game, and want to learn how RVF brings life to your high-traffic areas, read on to explore what it is, its various opportunities for design, its benefits, and how RVF continues to revolutionize the flooring industry today.
Resilient Vinyl Flooring is one of the most commonly used flooring options in high-traffic areas. With its capability to mask scuff marks and soil, resistance to wear and tear, and ability to reject water spills, RVF is found in virtually every possible commercial space; this includes classrooms, offices, laboratories, and even warehouses.
Additionally, RVF’s enormous selection of textures, colors, and finishes allows it to convincingly mimic tile, marble, wood, or even stone, making it both a beauty and a beast.
Now we can dive further into how RVF’s aesthetic options set it apart.
Are you looking for a flowing, linear pattern? Or perhaps an organic earth tone? How about a densely-layered wood look? Well, RVF can nail all these looks, and more. What about a matte or shine finish? Or neither? The answer is still yes. Regardless of the designer’s eye, RVF can meet the demand.
Top looks include:
Beauty is one thing, but when it meets brawn, a winning product is truly born.
Some of RVF’s gorilla-like properties include withstanding heavy foot traffic, thickness options ranging anywhere from 10 mils to 40 mils (depending on need), ease of installation on rough or uneven surfaces, and the ability to remain hydrophobic (reject water).
RVF also provides excellent insulation, sound absorption, has a low-carbon footprint, and is generally manufactured in the USA.
The secret to these strengths is found in RVF’s multi-level design. Most consist of a backing layer, core layer, decorative layer, and wear layer. With each piece playing its designated role, the RVF as a whole makes for an exceptionally strong unit.
