The vinyl sheet flooring offered today is the product of years of advancements in manufacturing technology and refined design capabilities providing more depth and texture than ever before. In-register embossed products are now available, and new and highly advanced finishes make sheet vinyl easier to maintain than ever. In addition to an increased focus on fashion, manufacturers laud sheet vinyl’s built-in benefits, such as its affordability and waterproof capabilities, and added new technology to improve those benefits.
Sheet vinyl flooring is typically offered in 6′ and 12′ widths for commercial and residential spaces, with products for both the professionally installed and do-it-yourself installations. Some manufacturers offer sheet vinyl in even wider widths such as 16’4”, often used in manufactured housing and recreational vehicles, to provide a continuous, seamless floor.
Homogeneous sheet vinyl is made of a single layer and is sometimes referred to as through-color, meaning the color and visual on the surface goes all the way through the floor. This gives the flooring rigidity and toughness along with vibrancy and depth of color. Hence, it can be used in places that experience heavy foot traffic. This type flooring is typically available in solid colors and multi-color chip configurations. It is incredibly durable and stain resistant which makes it a great flooring choice for heavy traffic areas.
