LVPs have numerous benefits and unique advantages which, when combined with specialised technology, span beyond the normal to offer excellent flooring solutions.

When it comes to flooring, a popular choice for home and business owners is LVP (Luxury Vinyl Planks) as it provides considerable benefits. It is a functional choice in high-traffic areas such as restaurants, hotels, businesses and retail outlets, as it is resilient, reduces noise, is stain- and water-resistant, slip-resistant to enhance safety, and is backed up by a 10-year light commercial warranty.

EchoWood LVP adds the warm, inviting ambience of wooden floors to any interior space, including bathrooms and kitchens, without the constraints and costs associated with maintaining wood flooring. Due to its antibacterial nano-silver technology, the floor ‘cleans up after itself’, preventing buildup of harmful bacteria, viruses and mould, making it easier to clean with less water, fewer chemicals and less energy.

With its deep-embossed effect in 22 beautiful colours, the EchoWood range can add value and has the design versatility to make renovating and upgrading effortless. EchoWood is available in a floating Delux Click or Luxury Click system that is easy to install, even over existing flooring such as tiles. As it requires no underlay, it delivers a quick and hassle-free turnaround time and has a 20-year warranty. The floor can also be re-installed in another area if required and individual planks can be removed and replaced when necessary. Should more time be available, the Luxury Glue Down system – which involves a self-levelling screed and glue – offers a more permanent option.

Turning to exterior floors, the newly launched EchoDeck is considered the ideal choice for decking flooring and is available in two colours, Coffee and Light Grey, in a narrow groove finish. EchoDeck’s Wood-Plastic Composite (WPC) with its natural fibres and plastic combination offers outstanding properties including strength and durability; resistance to cracking, splitting, heat and fading; while being acid- and alkali-proof; and also recyclable. With its 20-year warranty period, low maintenance and quick installation, EchoDeck WPC is a modern choice for exterior flooring, saving one on repairs, cleaning and labour costs.

This is why Wanabiwood is considered a sustainable flooring alternative for responsible establishments managing their carbon footprint. Recognised by the Green Building Council as a ‘green builder’ product, the EchoWood LVP range is a cost-effective alternative for hardwood or laminate flooring and meets ISO 9001 and ISO14001 qualifications.

Furthermore, Wanabiwood looks like wood, but instead is ECHO wood. As a result, it is a flooring option that will not only contribute significantly to sustainability efforts but still deliver the necessary functionality, affordability and pleasing aesthetics as an all-round solution for modern, progressive spaces.
