Vinyl flooring is very low-maintenance. Thanks to an optional protective polyurethane lacquer, the floor is easy to clean and protects it against daily wear and tear. All it needs is an occasional sweep with a wet mop and standard cleaning products.
Vinyl flooring is protected by a very hard-wearing surface. The resistance of vinyl to staining and general household use is one of the key benefits of vinyl floors and makes them one of the most durable types of floor coverings on the market.
COMFORT & WARM TOUCH
The cushioned nature of vinyl floors make them a pleasure to walk upon, they feel warm to the touch and are ideal for barefoot. Moreover, the good heat conduction of vinyl flooring means it works very well with underfloor heating.
EASY ON THE POCKET
Vinyl flooring is far less expensive to produce than other natural flooring products which makes it a much more cost effective option. For a fraction of the cost you can replicate the look of a floor that may otherwise have cost thousands of pounds.
Find your perfect artificial grass
Advances in recent years have seen the popularity of artificial grass grow rapidly, this is predominantly down to the fact it now looks and feels more like the real thing but without the maintenance. However not all artificial grasses are the same height and density. The pile density has a significant bearing on the resilience and durability of an artificial lawn. The denser the pile the more durable the grass is likely to be. Good quality grass should be weighty, and the pile should be dense. In Europe, pile density is typically measured in stiches per square metre. For example, a good quality grass should have around 16,000 plus stitches per m2
The pile height that you choose for your artificial lawn has an impact on both appearance and performance. It can affect three key areas: resilience, feel and aesthetics. It depends on its intended use as to what pile height to go for. Longer pile grasses will give a lush, luxurious look of a natural lawn. Shorter pile grasses can look neat and tidy like a freshly mown lawn and are more suitable for children and pets. Whether you want 7mm or a premium 50mm artificial grass, we will have the perfect pile height for your garden.
There are fundamental parts to an artificial lawn, the grass blades and the colored material that imitates the dying blades of grass that occur in real grass known as the thatch. There is an immense range of colour combinations to choose from You could choose a pristine and vibrant green lawn or a more natural look with a combination of light and dark green blades with a caramel and brown thatch. With new technical advances in grass yarns it is becoming almost impossible to tell the difference from the real thing. We have a wide choice of colours from light to dark greens, vibrant to natural shades, as well as brightly coloured pink, yellow and purple grass, which is ideal for children’s play areas and exhibitions. Whatever you prefer we always recommend ordering a free sample to check the colour before you purchase.
