rc Rigid Core Flooring

The Next Evolution of Flooring

Rigid Core Flooring has arrived. Typically comprised of a solid polymer core, these products feature ease of installation, superior indent resistance, acoustic benefits, and authentic designs.

The demands to get a commercial space up and running quickly are ever increasing. For most installations Rigid Core products do not need to be acclimated as long as they’re being installed into properly conditioned spaces. The rigid structure also bridges subfloor imperfections easier than flexible products where subfloor issues may telegraph through the flooring.

Controlling acoustics inside a commercial space is an important consideration. Rigid Core products can play a positive role in sound attenuation, or sound blocking, where noise transmission reduction is critical — like Multi-Family spaces, and hotels.

Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of Rigid Core flooring is its resistance to indent – thanks to its solid polymer core – ensuring floors looks newer, longer.

Reasons to Specify Rigid Core

  • Eliminates or reduces the need to acclimate the product – install or renovate in less time

  • Withstands heavy foot and rolling load traffic, and abuse from commercial activities

  • Modular flexibility, including large format planks
  • Manufactured to Armstrong Flooring’s Diamond Standard of Quality
