Products – Resilient

Facility Services Group, Inc. offers the installation and maintenance of a wide range of resilient flooring products including:

Laminate is a synthetic, multi-layer flooring product that simulates wood using a photographic application underneath a clear, protective layer. Durable and hygienic, laminate is a popular choice for flooring due to the relative ease of installation and maintenance.

Linoleum is made entirely of renewable raw materials: linseed oil, cork powders, tree resin, wood flour, and clay pigments, with jute backing.

Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) is tough and durable and comes in a huge variety of colors, patterns and sizes. Luxury Vinyl Tile is resilient and resistant to moisture is a perfect flooring option for your design that can be installed virtually anywhere. Luxury Vinyl Tile styles range from the look of natural wood, metal, ceramic tile, stone, and marble to more creative and artistic patterns. And because more and more vinyl tile is being made from recycled content, it’s an excellent choice for the environment.

Pre-fabricated cove base is a product that is installed along the base of an interior wall where the wall meets the floor. Cove base protects the base of your wall from puncture or other damage. Aesthetically pleasing, vinyl and rubber cove is typically less expensive and is generally easier to install than traditional wood baseboards.

Rubber is among the most cost-efficient materials for commercial flooring. It is extremely durable, resists dents and stains, is quiet to walk on, and has a unique softness that gives ergonomic comfort, slip resistance, and noise absorption / sound deadening.

Vinyl flooring, as vinyl composition tile (VCT) or sheet vinyl, is offered in a wide array of colors, is extremely versatile, and, if you choose tiles, spares can replace worn or damaged areas.

While it’s true that vinyl flooring typically has a lower initial cost than other resilient materials like rubber, its maintenance requirements may result in higher total life-cycle costs. Under heavy use, vinyl is not as durable as rubber flooring.

Sheet vinyl is popular for its wide array of design choices. Vinyl wears well, resists water and cushions the feet more than tile, hardwood or laminate. Sheet vinyl can be applied over concrete or linoleum. When laying over hardwood floor or an uneven floor, underlayment is required. The key to any successful installation is preparation.

There are three types of sheet flooring used today: homogeneous, a non-layered, non-backed material typically 80 mils thick that makes it one of the most durable, long-lasting types of resilient flooring, heterogeneous, a multi-layer product which has a wealth of expressive patterns with unlimited design possibilities reinforced to reduce the cost of maintenance, and inlaid, that has two separate components, a vinyl wear layer and a felt backing. Commercial-grade versions of the product typically have a total thickness of 80 mils, with a vinyl wear layer of 50 mils.
