Pergo offers the most stable, floating, luxury vinyl (LVT) in the world. One year since we started producing vinyl in Wielsbeke, intensive testing by the dedicated R&D team has shown that our floors are even more resistant to temperature changes than initially assumed.
LVT floors are composed of thermoplastic materials. This means that they tend to expand in warm conditions, and shrink in cold environments. This can result in warping and open joints. Local hotspots, like big, south-facing windows are critical for most LVT click flooring. That’s why, over the last few years, Pergo has been focusing intensively on making its LVT flooring as heat resistant as possible.
Tests have confirmed that our product is even more stable than initially assumed. Today, we can say with certainty that Pergo offers the most stable LVT on the market
“Last year, we claimed that Pergo LVT was stable in all standard situations”, says R&D Director Laurent Meersseman. “Since then, we have gained a lot more insight and expertise into vinyl flooring. Ever since we started producing vinyl last year at our new factory in Belgium, various tests have confirmed that our product is even more stable than initially assumed. Today, we can say with certainty that Pergo offers the most stable LVT for floating installation on the market.”
“To achieve this exceptional heat resistance, we have focused on ‘four pillars of stability: in-house research and development of all the floor’s components, full control over the production process through vertical integration, our expertise in developing the best and most-used click system in the world, and a clear focus on quality through in-house testing and measurement techniques.”
We systematically monitor the quality of our products and refuse to tolerate even the slightest deviation from the standard
All of the above results in high-quality commercial vinyl flooring with unprecedented stability. For end-users, this means there is no need for transition profiles between rooms. Furthermore, unlimited installation is possible both in length and width without the use of expansion profiles. The end-result is a sleeker finish, and an overall better-looking floor.
