What are LVT floors? - mFLOR

mFLOR offers two types of LVT floors, Dryback and Loose Lay. The difference lies in the installation method.


Dryback floors are thin PVC strips or tiles with an average thickness of 2 or 2.5mm. These design floors are bonded to an even surface, so that the floor is completely fixed.

mFLOR Dryback 20-03

These LVT floors are 2mm thick and have a 0.3mm thick wear layer. This makes the floors more than suitable for intensive domestic use, but also for light commercial applications where use is more intensive than in residential homes, such as hotel rooms.

mFLOR Dryback 25-05

These LVT floors are 2.5mm thick and have a 0.55mm thick wear layer. This makes these floors suitable for intensive project-based use where large numbers of people walk on the floor, such as shops, schools, restaurants, public buildings and shopping centres.

Loose Lay

Loose Lay floors are 5mm thick and the backing has an anti-slip layer. This product can be installed loose on the surface, without bonding. Due to the thickness and weight of the product, combined with the anti-slip layer, it stays in place without bonding. The great advantage is that the floor can be taken up again, making it easy to get under the floor in commercial environments.

mFLOR Loose Lay 50-07

These LVT floors have a thickness of 5.0mm and a wear layer of 0.7mm. Because of the thickness, weight and anti-slip backing, no adhesive is required for installation. The ideal solution for all demanding floating floor applications, like on raised floors.
