Wear layer thickness is one of the most critical aspects of your vinyl flooring. These range from 6mm to 20mm, and, on the higher end of the scale, they can easily handle commercial level traffic and wear. If you have a bustling household, it's safer to choose a wear layer thickness that will give you more protection.
Of the many advantages that vinyl flooring offers, scratch resistance is one of the most highly sought after. It’s an excellent option for homes with pets, children, or lots of traffic. Thicker wear layers even protect high heels while still offering a comfortable resilience, especially in places where you’ll stand for long periods.
