Fortem Urban Chalet Vailcrest
6.5 mm Waterproof Composite Floor
The Fortem Urban Chalet Vailcrest is a gorgeously contemporary 6.5 mm thick and large-format Engineered Waterproof Floor. This collection comes in a beautiful large plank format. It features contemporary shades and a genuine plain sawn wood pattern that showcases the authentic-looking “flames” wood-grain. Additionally, the ultra wide 9 inch, and super long 5 foot planks (60 inches) will modernize the look of any space.
Each plank of this floor is enhanced with a soft and realistic texture that is synchronized to the high definition wood-grain film. This process known as “Embossed in Register” or EIR, makes your floors look and feel like an actual hardwood floor. The beautiful texture of the planks is protected by a Ceramic Bead-finished 20 mil wear layer. This layer acts as a shield that protects the looks of your floors over time from scarring, scratching and even discoloration. It also provides superior stain resistance and easier cleanability. These floors are rated for both residential and commercial applications.
Because these floors are 100% waterproof, they won’t swell, peel or buckle. They can be installed on wet areas like bathrooms. The Fortem waterproof floors can also be used where water may present a problem in case of a leak, like the kitchen or the laundry room. Because these floors do not expand or contract like laminates, there’s no need for unsightly transition moldings between rooms. And since this product is rated for On Grade, Above and Below Grade installations, it can be used anywhere in your home, including the basement.
Unlike cheap vinyl and laminate floors, composite floors are 100% free of phthalates and formaldehyde. They are certified by FloorScore® so you can experience the bliss of cleaner air indoor. And thanks to the patented, last generation 5G® Locking System from Välinge, these floors can be easily installed by anyone without the need of fancy tools or equipment.
