With the huge success of Black Forest 12mm laminate flooring and the popular colours offered in their Effect range, Finfloor realised there was a clear gap in the market for an AC5/W33 commercial grade floor.
Using the latest in technological innovation, Finfloor has improved the Abrasion Class rating of their Effect range, which is now exclusively imported in AC5/W33-V4, 12mm thick commercial grade, meeting the needs of their most discerning clients.
What is an AC5 rating?
The AC (Abrasion Coefficient) rating is based on a grading standard from AC1- AC6 that indicates a laminate floor’s greater resistance to abrasion, which in turn contributes to greater durability.
However, for a product to be W33 certified, it has to undergo a range of different and vigorous tests. Being awarded a grading of AC5/W33 means that the product has one of the highest performance ratings /classifications, certifying that the product is fit for use in heavy traffic applications, e.g. departmental stores, hotel lobbies, busy restaurants and large corporate traffic areas.
Why does a 12mm thick floor matter?
The thickness of the laminate flooring is another consideration when selecting the right product. The now thicker 12mm Effect laminate offers:
• Improved acoustic qualities
• Better stability
• Improved strength.
Not only is Finfloor’s thicker 12mm Effect laminate definitely worth the additional cost, it also means that it can be used on a subfloor that isn’t as sturdy as it should be, which is typically the case with an old, suspended wood subfloor.
The compelling benefits of using Finfloor’s Effect laminate with the new AC5/W33 rating is undeniable and includes:
- A 12mm thick plank that is durable, abrasion, scratch and impact resistant.
- Improved product warranty 1) 25-year heavy domestic 2) 5-year heavy commercial warranty.
- Increased board density 900- 950 kg/m
- Antimicrobial top face
- 3D deep EIR realistic wood texture
- Unilin L2c locking system with paraffin waxed tongue
- Neutral and natural tones.
- Extremely durable
- Low maintenance and easy to clean
- Ideal for High trafficked areas and most commercial applications
