When investing in a flooring system, you need to be confident in the warranty of the floor. Traviata Flooring Systems recently revisited a couple of the highest traffic sites that have exceeded the warranty period for their Traviloc 5.0 interlocking vinyl.

Six years ago, the popular Cobblestones pub and restaurant at Monte Casino installed the interlocking vinyl system. This floor is exposed to thousands of feet, bar stools, tables and beer spills every day of the week. The Steers branch in Rosebank is much smaller but an added complication is that patrons walk in straight off the street and pavement bringing additional grit and dirt. This fast food restaurant also installed the Traviloc 5.0 interlocking vinyl six years ago.

Traviata is pleased to report that both these sites still boast great looking floors that will continue to give good service for years to come. The company can confidently give a five year “Full Commercial” warranty thanks to the integrity of the overall product as well as the 0.55mm wear layer that can withstand the harshest conditions. This transparent layer uses “Enhanced Ceramic Bead” technology to offer greater protection against scuffs and scratches. Ceramic Bead is an extremely durable material that acts in the same way as the “Teflon” coating in your frying pan.

Both the establishments have maintained a proper cleaning programme over the years. This is another key factor for preserving floors in these harsh conditions and is critical to the floors’ longevity.
