Woven Vinyl Flooring

Wondering if anyone has any experience with Infinity Woven Vinyl (or any other brand) flooring? How does it hold up? Especially to dogs?

Thanks.

Interesting looking product. I have no experience with it but I assume it is not water proof since it is meant to go on a water proof surface. Our application assumes a plywood subfloor and moisture would most likely migrate down and cause damage to the plywood.

I'm thinking about a new floor and would like something non-slip and a little pliable. I've been thinking about Armstrong Alterna. My brother put it down in his house and it has performed very well and looks terrific. Having said that the woven floor is an intriguing idea, I just don't think it is going to provide the water barrier we need.

I have a pack of dogs that travel with me so durability is a big issue.

There's a guy on Facebook restoring an old old bus and using that for his flooring. The name of this site is called creative Cruiser. Is restoration is being done in Central Oregon by one of the high in coach facilities. That guy does his research and if he is using it must be amazing stuff

I found his Facebook site, but I am not a user (I only use "anti-social media") so I can't ask any questions. The time lapse shows them laying the woven floor. Unfortunately it is out of focus so can't see the subfloor. In his update where he shows them covering the heated flooring wires he mentions that it will be topped with aluminum, suggesting a water proof subfloor.

I'd like to ask him about it but I won't break down and join the dark side.

I was hoping the OP might be on FB and be motivated to ask. For my plans I won't put down a waterproof subfloor to use the product, but If it wasn't required I'd think about it.

I think it might resolve the problem of the carpet flap at the edge of the slide floor which is a problem when using hard flooring.

I've been on the Infinity Woven Vinyl website and they recommend installation on bare wood, and they specifically market it for RV applications.

I've written to them to ask who sells it so I can get price info since they don't have a "where to buy" feature on their site.

An update on a conversation with infinity: I asked about the possibility of water seeping through the material and the answer is yes it will. The vinyl itself will no absorb the water and there is no effective barrier to water getting to the subfloor. But it also won't saturate the carpet or any backing so there is nothing to hold it there. Airstream, among other manufacturers, is installing this material in new builds, for what that's worth.

I got a call from their sales guy yesterday - he was looking for a dealer/installer in the Calgary area - they don't have a retailer out here.

Anyway I was able to confirm it is pretty expensive - $13-$15 a square foot before installation.

That would fit with the build of the Creative Cruiser. He is not cutting corners on anything.
