Profilitec Introduces Series of LVT Profiles
Profilitec recently introduced a full line of profiles specifically engineered for floating and glued luxury vinyl tile (LVT) floors. Profilitec has created a line of low thickness profiles suitable for LVT floors: Multiclip CLG 260, CLF 320, CLP 240 and Covertec SP, Zerotec ZR, Stairtec SVT.
“These lines were created specifically to adapt to the typical low thickness associated with LVT,” said Greg Gelston, president of Profilitec. “All of which are useful for resolving the transition between floors of the same thickness, floors with different heights and for side edging of floors that need expansion.”
The Multiclip LVT System is a patented system which includes a complete series of LVT floor profiles (4-6 mm – 5/32 in. - 1/4 in.) ideal for trimming the perimeter of floors requiring an expansion gap, and for transitioning between floors of equal and different thicknesses. The Multiclip patented system is an addition to the traditional Multiclip patented system, offering a connection structure that is resistant, adjustable and flexible. The 14 models of the LVT "wood look" range are produced with an innovative, high resistance covering certified by PEI ratings. All are available in Anodized Aluminum and High Resistance Wood Laminated Aluminum.
Covertec SP is a profile designed to join two adjacent existing floors at the same height, but can also cover imperfections in cutting or slight variations of height, such as between a tiled floor joining to a wooden one. Available in three different widths, this profile is offered in Polished Brass, Chromed Brass, Stainless Steel, Silver Anodized Aluminum and Aluminum Wood Cladding Finish.
Zerotech ZR50 is a joint profile for LVT floors at different levels with thicknesses from 0 to 5 mm or 0 to 3/16 in. Its inclination facilitates the passage of trolleys like a small ramp. The trim allows the installer to perfectly join the height difference created when laying new floor covering over an existing one. Its ramp angle inclination has been conceived to bear intense transit of vehicles or wheeled carts in garage areas and shopping centers always maintaining total protection to the various edges of tiled floors. This profile contributes to safety when treading over connecting floors.
Stairtec SVT is a stair nosing profile for 5mm with anti-slip function thanks to its several knurls on the surface.
“The availability of this extensive LVT Series solidifies our company’s commitment to offer the most advanced engineered products; offering real solutions for real issues,” Gelston added.
