Loose Lay LVT
Loose Lay Luxury Vinyl has been the most popular flooring option for commercial as well as residential interiors. This popularity stems from the Loose Lay’s coupling of luxury vinyl with phthalate-free plasticizers, thereby adding weight and durability to the LVT flooring.

Loose Lay is an easy to install LVT that requires adhesive for the perimeter tiles only. The LVT pieces within this glued perimeter are simply ‘laid’ down without any adhesive. The traction needed to hold the tiles at its place without any adhesive is provided by the added weight and the specialized backing.
