Household linoleum

Household linoleum easily recognizable by the labeling, because the product has the smallest index of durability - 21-23 units.

laying linoleum of this type must be carried out only in areas that do not expect a strong mechanical load on the floor.

Commercial linoleum

At the moment, there are two types of commercial linoleum: heterogeneous and homogeneous.Products differ in manufacturing technology and purpose for use.

Commercial linoleum

surface heterogeneous products coated with polyurethane coating.

This type of commercial linoleum has four versions:

  • antistatic - is opposed to the emergence of static electricity.Laying of antistatic linoleum demand in rooms equipped with high-precision instrumentation;
  • acoustic - has the property to absorb noise and sounds while walking;
  • tokorasseivayuschy - resists the accumulation of electrical charges.Installation tokorasseivayuschego material as antistatic laying linoleum, made on the premises, furnished electronic equipment, such as laboratories and operating;

surface preparation

measurement rules

Before cutting linoleum on certain segments, roll goods takes place on the floor for the purpose of alignment.

left in this position for 2-3 days.During this time the floor smoothed and disappear from the surface of the kinks and creases.

then performed metering floor area determined by its length and width, taking into account niches protrusions and openings.
If the room has a wall curves, then to each computed value added of 50 mm.
