We offer three different floor fitting formats: rigid core, loose lay and gluedown.

   Rigid core explained


Planks and tiles with a rigid core makeup offer more robustness and stability and are less pliable than other vinyl flooring floors. Fitted together by a clicking locking mechanism. Our Palio Rigid and Palio Core ranges have a rigid core construction.

Benefits of Rigid core: 

Patented click locking mechanism

No need for adhesive

Quick and easy to install Installs over most existing hard floors

No underlay required Reduces impact noise transfer by 19dB


   Loose lay explained


Laid direct to the floor the loose lay planks and tiles have a friction grip backing that holds them in place using a combination of weight and friction. In most cases, a tackifer is only needed for thresholds or under kitchen units.* 

Friction grip backing No need for adhesive

Luxury vinyl planks that are adhered to the subfloor using adhesive. It is recommended that you have undertaken some training before attempting a gluedown floor because you will need to prepare the subfloor before getting started.
