  7. Why is PRO-TEK™ WPC so quick to install?

    Before and after PRO-TEK™ installation
    Before and after PRO-TEK™ installation

    One of the key benefits of PRO-TEK™ WPC engineered vinyl flooring is its fast installation, with minimal ‘prep’. Most vinyl stick-down floors require a fair amount of subfloor preparation, so what makes PRO-TEK™ WPC engineered vinyl flooring different?

    The answer lies in the construction. Most sheet vinyl floors are relatively thin and measure between 1.2mm to 5mm. Luxury vinyl tiles tend to be slightly thicker and they’re made up of a PVC vinyl base layer, decorative PVC film and clear vinyl wear layer. In contrast, PRO-TEK™ WPC measures between 7mm - 8.5 mm and has six layers: an IXPE foam underlay base, a waterproof WPC (wood plastic composite) core structure layer with glueless joint, an LVT top layer, décor layer, wear layer and a UV layer on top. This makes the construction more stable; it feels a lot thicker and more rigid than vinyl and LVT, which tends to be quite flexible.
