Our Selections Bring you Beauty From the World Over
Imagine adding the character of
Distressed Heart Pine, an Antique Barn Oak, or the elegance
of slate, stone or travertine to your home. With our latest
proprietary process, NatureForm Optix™, we've combined the
beauty of nature with the latest advances in printing,
texturing and finishing, creating unparalleled realism and
the most realistic laminate flooring ever.
We used our expertise at making hardwood
floors to create laminates in the wood styles and tones
people prefer most. We 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, found in both our Revolutions™ Tile and Plank
Typical high-pressure laminate floors use
glue to hold the plastic laminate to the core - glue that
can sometimes come unstuck. But our ThermoComposite™
technology lets us replace the glue with thermal-set plastic
resins that are forced through three surface layers and deep
into the fibers of our 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 piano.
Wear and stain resistance.
Our 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 our 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.
No floor comes closer to true
maintenance-free performance. Ordinary vacuuming or sweeping
is usually all it takes, with occasional wiping with
Mannington Award Series® Cleaner.
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.
Our 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 Hush™, AquaBarrier™ 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.
