No floor comes closer to true maintenance-free performance. Ordinary vacuuming or sweeping is usually all it takes, with occasional wiping and dusting.
Mannington’s Selections Bring you Beauty From the World Over
Imagine adding the character of distressed pine, antique oak, or the elegance of slate, stone or travertine to your home. Mannington has combined the beauty of nature with the latest advances in printing, texturing and finishing, creating unparalleled realism and the most realistic laminate flooring ever.
Mannington used their expertise at making hardwood floors to create laminates in the wood styles and tones people prefer most. They even went a step further by pioneering a proprietary process of printing, texturing and finishing that captures original source materials like natural stone and wood with exceptional crispness and depth of color.
Typical high-pressure laminate floors use glue to hold the plastic laminate to the core – glue that can sometimes come unstuck. But Mannington’s ThermoCompositeT technology replaces the glue with thermal-set plastic resins that are forced through three surface layers and deep into the fibers of the EcoCore®. No peeling here! This EcoCore®, made from recycled wood materials, is a super-strong, high-density fiberboard that withstands denting-even from the heaviest furniture.
Wear and stain resistance
Mannington’s melamine surface gets its incredible durability from aluminum oxide. Second only to diamonds in hardness, aluminum oxide provides unsurpassed wear and stain resistance. Many of Mannington’s patterns also feature a built-in finish that improves your floor’s resistance to every-day wear-n-tear and helps make clean-up a snap.
Spills happen, but laminate floors take them in stride. Juice, wine, grease, and chocolate are easily wiped away. Cigarette burns, asphalt, shoe polish, paint, ink, crayon, and nail polish come clean with alcohol or nail polish remover. Candle wax and chewing gum can be gently scraped away.
Manningon’s laminate flooring is designed to be laid as a “floating floor” above your existing floor (except carpeting, of course) without nails or glue. The only glue ever used is between the planks in the joints, which fit tightly together with a precise tongue and groove design. Mannington HushT, AquaBarrierT and ComfortBarrier® underlayments are very easy to install and keep out moisture rising from the subfloor, provide padding for walking comfort, add heat insulation, and dampen noise. And, we offer a complete package of trims and moldings manufactured to match and enhance the appearance of your floor.
