New plan for Sleeping Beauty's floor!!!

Okay, I should have done this to begin with. My wife suggested calling a friend of hers who owns a flooring store.I called I told her my dilemma and she suggested going with a rubberized floor, all one piece which will be professionally glued down. Forgot the name of this flooring. It comes in different mm thicknesses and hundreds of patterns/colors. She did mention that this product was relatively new on the market and very durable/ flexible. I will have it installed in the next week or so and will get you the picks.

We have the rubber floors at work for high traffic areas, very durable but hard to clean. Any dirt sticks to them like glue and an electric floor scrubber has to be used to clean them. I would check to see if there is a sealer specifically designed to use with it.

The flooring is Flexitec. not a pure rubber compound.

Sounds like the same flooring. Great product, super durable, just hard to clean.

Which one you going with??

Oh, and its still a vinyl product. IVC manufactures the popular Flexitec Brand of Cushion Vinyl Flooring in Belgium at the present time, but virtually every vinyl company out there is making their own version of this stuff now. I've always full spread the pressure sensitive glue. Yes it can be peeled off the floor much easier in the future because of this. And I've never had any wrinkling issues like some have reported. That only happens with a loose lay installation or if the installer fails to leave an expansion gap around the walls. Don't hesitate to go with this product, just make sure you have it installed by someone who knows how to work with the product properly.
