It is best to weigh up these options with what you want from your laminate floor, allowing you to make an informed decision and to pick the best option that suits you.

What is HPL?--- These means that high-pressure laminate (HPL) is pressed in multiple stages and these layers are ‘fused’ together using heat and a resin coated sheet, often with a thicker base and wear layers. This helps to ensure a very durable and reliable surface, giving you added peace of mind.

HPL is the preferred choice in a commercial setting, office or restaurant etc., where a stunning look needs to be combined with a more rigid structure and a stronger surface than other types of laminate flooring.

Another option is DPL which is Direct-Pressure Laminate. This is a laminate floor consisting of four layers which are pressed together, these manage to create a very solid and durable end product.
