LINOLEUM FLOORING: SUSTAINABLE AND VERSATILE

The history of linoleum as flooring is a long one. Dating back as early as the 1860s, Frederick Walton developed this flexible flooring and, according to numerous sources, entirely by chance. After the accidental discovery of the rubbery layer of oxidized linseed oil, linoleum flooring has developed into a sustainable, authentic and versatile resilient floor covering that is both in demand and more durable than ever.

FAQ - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS FLOORING

WHAT IS A LINOLEUM FLOOR?

Linoleum is an ecological natural floor covering consisting of linseed oil, cork flour, and jute. It is thus not only very natural but also extremely durable. As a rule, it is offered as web material in a roll width of 2 m, but there is also a Do-It-Yourself solution with click linoleum tiles.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LINOLEUM, PVC AND VINYL?

Visually, PVC floors and linoleum can be very similar at first glance, but the distinction is evident at a second glance:

PVC or vinyl are purely synthetic materials, while linoleum is made from natural raw materials. The product structure also differs, because while PVC coverings often have a multi-layered structure - a distinction between a back finish and vinyl layer - linoleum floors are generally single layer with a continuous wear layer. This single-layered construction makes it particularly durable because this floor covering can be polished or sanded several times.

Linoleum floors are considerably heavier when compared to vinyl floors and are therefore offered only in a roll width of 2 m, while PVC floors are also available with a roll width of 4 m or even 5 m.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF A LINOLEUM FLOOR?

These floor tiles are particularly hardwearing and are therefore particularly suitable for use in heavily used rooms such as public areas (schools, administration buildings, hospitals, etc.).

The ecological advantages of this natural flooring make it attractive for everyday users as well. For these users, we recommend a click installation
