Have you got one of them super busy households? Find it near impossible to babysit your floors, let alone the husband! Perhaps you have a commercial property that gets a ridiculous amount of un-wiped feet passing through the door. Well, here’s a flooring you may wish to seriously consider! Read on and let me tell you why..
We’ve been so excited lately with this new range of 100% water proof flooring. Incorporating the Unilin locking system commonly associated with Quick-Step floors this is an absolute must for any household..
Aqua-Step, with its complete range of 100% water-proof flooring, provides you years of comfort and a worry-free future. Aqua-Step is perfectly resistant against floods, moisture or condensation. It is suitable for kitchens, bathrooms, laundries, hallways, cellars and pretty much anywhere that’s subjected to high air humidity or surface water. Aqua-Step is made from a high quality synthetic resin. It contains no wood components what so ever so the risk of swelling is none. Aqua-Step is also recommended for project applications such as fitness rooms, restaurants, shops, as it meets all necessary technical specifications.
Aqua-Step can be cleaned with water and soap which results in an extremely hygienic floor. The floor stays bacteria free and is completely mould resistant, ideal for allergy sufferers and hectic households. The high density surface coating and the perfect waterproof seams prevent dirt from penetrating the floor. Is there really anything better?
Inspired by nature, Aqua-Step waterproof flooring specialists have utilised the honeycomb structure to a completely new flooring concept: a hollow floor structure that absorbs sound, conducts underfloor heating and outperforms most other floor coverings on strength with the added advantage it can withstands heavy loads and absorb falling of objects.
Stringent testing and checks can guarantee the quality of Aqua-Step. A 20 year warranty is offered regarding domestic use on discolouration, abrasion of the top surface, and resistance to stains!
A huge advantage of this floor covering is the ease of installation. As mentioned, it’s incorporated with the truly outstanding and much spoke about Unilin locking system, this floor is a dream to fit.
If you want the look and feel of a wood floor with the massive benefit of not worrying about water damage, then Aqua-Step has to be put in your top three at least!
I’ve included a chart below to show some clear comparisons between Aqua-Step and a conventional laminate floor, which of course is what Aqua-Step is based off.
