Most laminates are made from high-density fibreboard, comprised of recycled wood fibres. This type of material isn't waterproof and never recommended in high moisture areas like basements, kitchens, bathrooms and commercial applications. Exposure to moisture can cause laminate flooring to expand and contract, causing uneven surfaces and bulging or splitting seams. Laminate also requires specialized cleaning, limiting the amount of water and surfactant to reduce potential degradation.
With Kypro's Luxury Vinyl, you'll feel the difference. Because of our industry-leading layer of high density foam, you'll experience a significantly softer floor that's much more comfortable to walk on. And Kypro's Luxury Vinyl has been proven to reduce noise with it's sound attenuating layer making it the preferred choice for all applications.
Kypro's Engineered Luxury Vinyl floors are made with 100% virgin PVC materials, which means there are no natural pores that can absorb moisture. This should be a key deciding factor when planning your next construction or renovation project in your office, basement, kitchen, bathroom, family, and living room space. One of the only floors that's an ideal candidate for residential and commercial spaces without compromising warranty.
With an industry leading 0.5mm wear layer our floors can be cleaned with any all-purpose cleaners. No waxes or specialty hardwood cleaning products are needed to maintain the vibrant look and soft feel. The water and stain resistant patented UniClick system prevents liquid from penetrating the surface when accidents happen. We take our floors seriously. This is why we guarantee our product for 10 years in commercial, and 25 years in residential projects.
Kypro uses a higher standard in its in-stock engineered hardwood. With 5/8" hardwood ply, (not MDF), this increases the durability and longevity in all applications. Kypro flooring is also CARB2 compliant and that documentation can be downloaded to meet any LEED certificate requirements that the installer may have.
If you've purchased Engineered Luxury Vinyl flooring from Kypro, you can get straight to work. This flooring doesn't need to be acclimatized before installation like other MDF based laminates or fibreboard backed click lock flooring systems. Because its made from 100% virgin PVC materials, Kypro ELV flooring will not expand or contract in sudden changes in environment.
Kypro recommends to let any Engineered Hardwood flooring products acclimatize for 48 hours before installation.
