What is Commercial Vinyl Plank Flooring?

Commercial vinyl plank flooring is a synthetic floor product that mimics the look and feel of real hardwood. It’s built specifically for use in commercial spaces like offices, retail environments, banquet halls, and any other public areas that see a high number of visitors every day.

answering what is Commercial Vinyl Plank Flooring?
  • Prioritizes durability through the inclusion of a thick, industrial-strength wear layer
  • Naturally waterproof and can be exposed to ordinary moisture without worry
  • Commercial vinyl plank is offered in slip-resistant options, which help keep your employees and patrons safer

Why Should You Choose Commercial Vinyl Plank Flooring?

Whether it’s an upscale restaurant or a casual coffee shop, a hip open-concept office or a boutique hotel room, the look of wood floors can beautify any business setting. But the amount of foot traffic endured by the floors at most of these locations would quickly take its toll on real wood, engineered hardwood, and even wood laminate flooring. The commercial vinyl plank flooring offered by Empire Today captures the stylish look of wood flooring but is built to withstand the abuse of a busy public environment.

But why choose commercial-grade vinyl flooring over the vinyl floors typically installed in a home? In short, durability. Although both types of vinyl flooring offer the realistic look and feel of natural wood, commercial vinyl prioritizes wear resistance by using a thicker, more durable wear layer. It’s highly scratch-resistant, dent-resistant, stain-resistant, and water-resistant. But perhaps best of all, it’s also budget-friendly. With commercial vinyl plank flooring, your business can make a style statement, while minimizing the impact on your financial statements.

Commercial Vinyl Plank Flooring features

Though appreciated for its beautiful wood-look finish, what really makes commercial vinyl plank flooring a great choice for businesses is the extra-tough construction.

  • Covered by robust warranties, including many products with limited lifetime warranties against staining and fading
  • Lifelike wood-grain texture also helps increase traction to aid in slip resistance
  • Thick vinyl core helps reduce likelihood of buckling or warping often seen on low-quality vinyl floors

Commercial Vinyl Plank Flooring FAQs

Although they share the same basic construction, there are some key differences between residential and commercial grade vinyl flooring. The key difference is in the top layer, also known as the wear layer. Commercial vinyl plank will have tougher, thicker wear layer—sometimes twice as thick as residential flooring. This allows the commercial floor to endure much more traffic than the vinyl flooring in a home. Additionally, commercial vinyl flooring tends to have a low-gloss finish, which prevents wear marks from showing.

Minimizing disruptions to our commercial customers’ businesses is one of Empire’s top priorities. To that end, we strive to offer the shortest possible turnaround on flooring installation times. In many cases, we’ll be able to begin installing the new vinyl flooring the day after your product decision is finalized. Additionally, Empire offers after-hours and weekend installation windows, so you won’t need to close your business while your floors are installed.

A major part of Empire’s commercial flooring installation offerings is their comprehensive scope of service. We will coordinate everything necessary to get the job done, from moving furniture and lifting cubicles to returning everything back to its proper place once the vinyl plank installation is completed.
