Impervia® Luxury Rigid Plank Waterproof Flooring @realwoodfloor

The Solid Wood Flooring Company are proud to announce our Impervia® range of

waterproof luxury vinyl flooring has been shortlisted at the Tomorrow’s Contract Floors Awards 2020. The awards celebrate the most innovative products and services in the industry, so to be shortlisted is a huge honour. Public voting opens in January, all the details to vote can be found by visiting our social channels.

As a specialist in Luxury Rigid Plank Waterproof Flooring, this is a defining moment that has led to such high demand we have now launched Impervia® as its own stand-alone brand and website. You can visit the site at to view the range and see the quality for yourself, just in time for Christmas.

The award nomination and website launch are fantastic developments in the Impervia® story and makes the range a perfect choice for any design project you may have in mind for the New Year, be it domestic or commercial.

The biggest factor for the success of the range is that it has been deemed 75% quieter than the average wood flooring, and crucially,  has also been rated low slip risk. So when considering the health and safety credentials of your project you can rest assured that with our PTV measurement of 69 (in dry conditions) and 40 (in wet) we are out performing the score of 36, which is considered low slip risk.

In high traffic areas that are also exposed to moisture, such as bathrooms, require a flooring that is durable enough to withstand that environment. This is all part of the solution that The Solid Wood Flooring Company offer with a new range and website engineered with you in mind.


Why Choose our SPC Rigid Flooring:

Other practical benefits of our range include a backing that is made of IXPE which is a foam type plastic that makes it totally waterproof. Others would use a cork or cork composite backing which over time will deteriorate.

We have the best prices on the market for comparable quality, as well as the latest push fit technology and natural textured surface. The stone composite also has fibreglass to create a stable rigid plank, and because of the width and lengths, it looks more natural unlike narrower shorter pieces which is commonly found in vinyl flooring.

Because the flooring is also available in a choice of colours and textures, this gives you the flexibility and control to select the right option for you.
