Luxury Vinyl Floor Coverings

With so many products on the market it is difficult to get to know each one intimately. To help architects and interior designers keep up to date with commercial flooring products we have developed this seminar to look in depth at the make-up, application and suitability of Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT). This seminar goes in to detail about everything from the manufacture, installation and maintenance of LVT:

  •  Who is Karndean Designflooring?
  •  What is LVT made of?
  •  LVT compared to other floor coverings
  •  Design components and unique designs
  •  EN classifications, slip resistance and technical considerations
  •  BREEAM and Life Cycle Assessment
  •  Wear layers, thickness, emboss, bevel, adhesives
  •  Subfloor preparation
  •  Ease of maintenance
