Armstrong Vinyl Flooring

If you haven’t looked at vinyl sheet floors lately, you may be pleasantly surprised. Vinyl sheet has come a long way since the days when patterns looked fake, and the floors were super-shiny and plastic-y. Today’s vinyl sheet floors are produced with state-of-the-art, 3D print and embossing technologies that allow manufacturers to create realistic images and textures, so stone patterns feel like real stone and wood patterns feel like real wood.

3D Technology

Armstrong Vinyl FlooringAs a marketing specialist for vinyl sheet floors, I decided I needed to know more about how these realistic images were created, so I asked our flooring designers. What I found out was very interesting. They actually scour the globe, visiting quarries and natural stone factories to select the most beautiful stones. Then they bring them back to Armstrong and scan them into a high tech scanner. Armstrong is one of only two companies in the world that have this type of scanner. By scanning the stones, our designers are able to send the highest resolution, 3D images to a printer that reproduces these images in our manufacturing plants on giant rolls of vinyl sheet. The result is the clearest, most realistic images available anywhere. We also use this same process for our wood and alternative vinyl sheet collections as well.

Affordable & Easy to Clean

Armstrong Vinyl FlooringVinyl sheet flooring is a great choice for the budget-conscious consumer who wants a high-end stone visual but may not have the budget to purchase a real stone floor. Vinyl sheet is also a great choice for consumers with active households because it won’t rip, tear or gouge under normal household use. And it’s easy to keep clean!

If you haven’t taken a look at vinyl floors lately and you want an incredibly beautiful, durable and easy-to-maintain flooring option, visit your local Armstrong retailer and check out the displays. See for yourself how vinyl sheet floors from Armstrong have come a long way since Grandma’s day.
