Durable Laminate Floors
Laminate floors have a wear-resistant decorative surface made of resin-based melamine which makes the floor extremely durable and difficult to stain, scratch or burn.
Laminate is a floating floor, which means it does not fasten directly to the sub-floor. Most laminate floors use a click-system which means that the planks just click together.
If laminate is laid over a concrete sub-floor then a combi underlay with a built-in damp-proof membrane must be used.

What are Laminate Floors made from?
- Top – Wear Layer
The transparent top layer is a melamine resin, a hard-wearing material that is resistant to scratches, burns, dents, stains, etc.
- Decorative Layer (High Strength Paper)
It is this decorative paper layer that gives the floor its individual appearance and character ranging from wood, ceramic, slate or stone designs.
- Core layer
This layer is made from high-density fibre board (HDF). It is extremely hard as it’s saturated in resins, which also help with moisture resistance.
- Balancing sheet
This strong bottom layer is what gives the laminate flooring its stability.
