PVC Flooring – Versatile, Flame Resistant and Recyclable

One of the most important features of any business or home is the floors. Whether you have a large family home or a business that requires floors that are safe, durable and stylish – when it comes to floor cover options, the market is flooded with a wide selection. With flooring options that range from concrete, marble to wood, the latest trend in the flooring arena that is giving its counterparts a good run for its money is PVC flooring.

Everyone is installing PVC flooring nowadays, and if you have not yet afforded your home or business the option to do so, then now is the time. Known as vinyl and polyvinyl chloride, PVC is accredited as one of the top flooring solutions for just about every flooring application imaginable. And with very good reason!

Versatile and Flame Resistant

Perfect for both indoor and outdoor use, PVC flooring is so versatile that it can be installed anywhere – from carwash facilities, factory floors, garage floors, gym/health club floors, sports facility floors, storage facility floors, restaurant floors, trade/showroom floors, warehouse floors, and workshop floors to studio floors. A synthetic compound made from a combination of vinyl resins, carbon, hydrogen and chloride, PVC is extremely durable and can last up to 30 years if cared for properly. It will not cut, tear or damage easily, and its water and flame resistant.


In addition, PVC flooring is highly customizable and 100% recyclable. It is a flooring solution that requires minimal natural resources and energy to produce. In fact, when you support the rubber/PVC flooring industry, you are also supporting the removal of tyres from landfills, and that means more trees will be saved and less waste will be produced and dumped within our environment.
