Fortem Metro Loft Snowbound
6 mm Waterproof Composite Floor
The Fortem Metro Loft Snowbound is a beautiful 6 mm thick Waterproof Composite Floor. Because these floors are 100% waterproof, they won’t swell, peel or buckle. They can be installed on wet areas like bathrooms, or 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, in most cases there’s no need for transition moldings between rooms. This product is rated for On Grade, Above and Below Grade installations.
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 is known as “Embossed in Register” or EIR and it makes your floors look and feel like an actual hardwood floor. This beautiful texture 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.
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.
