There are also commercial carpet tiles, modular squares that usually come in 18 X 18 and 24 X 24 sizes (although we have seen other sizes). They come in colors, fibers, and patterns, from geometrics to Berbers. You'll see them a lot in restaurants and hotels. This flooring is highly durable and more resistant to water and moisture than other rugs. They offer design flexibility since you can mix and match.
Some types of flooring may not have the “commercial grade” label, but there are levels that make some materials more appropriate for commercial floors. One of them is the AC (Abrasion Criteria) rating, used to differentiate commercial grade laminate. There are numbers from one to five. Strength levels increase as the numbers become higher. There is also an AC6 rating. The tile should be at least an AC3 rating for commercial use.
Luxury vinyl flooring (also referred to as LVF) durability is measured by the thickness of the wear layer. That is the clear, melamine sheet at the very top which protects the floor from scratches and scuffs. LVF is waterproof and the wear layer also helps that, keeping spills at the surface. For commercial installations, the wear layer should be 28 mils.
