Laminate Flooring is available in
a number of different styles and
species. The latest technologies
in Laminate Flooring allow both
Laminate Hardwood and Laminate
Tile to closely resemble Solid
Hardwood and Ceramic Tile.
Ratings are assigned to
the products based on extensive
testing requirements. These
tests include aspects such as
staining and impact as well as
an examination of the effects of
small burns. Other tests include
checking for water absorption
and swelling, and the abrasion
of furniture legs and castors.
If a floor meets or exceeds the
basic requirements in all of
these areas, it is granted a
graduated AC rating.
