Shaw Floors launched its newest collection in multilayer flooring, Floorté Pro, the industry’s first direct glue rigid core multilayer product with attached acoustical pad, according to the company.

By working closely with its customers, Shaw understands the market demand for an LVT crossover product suited for residential as well as multifamily and commercial applications. Floorté Pro is designed to perform in multiple business segments where end users are concerned with heavy traffic or prolonged wear.

Floorté Pro is a commercial grade, direct glue RCB product with an attached pad. Its dimensional stability reduces telegraphing, solves the issues of expansion and contraction, and is twice as dent resistant as traditional multilayer flooring, according to the company. In addition to direct glue, Floorté Pro will also have a traditional click installation option available.

“Shaw is committed to leading the industry in LVT innovations and creating the best quality resilient products for our customers,” said Clark Hodgkins, director of resilient category. “Floorté Pro is opening up a new realm of possibilities for resilient flooring and Shaw is designing industry-leading innovations with the intention of finding unique solutions for every space.”
