Laminate AC Ratings

Are you wondering how durable laminate flooring is? Laminate flooring toughness is measured with an AC rating which ranges from 1 to 5. AC1-AC2 rated floors are more suited to domestic settings. AC3-AC5 are more suitable for commercial areas. The more traffic your floor will experience, the higher the AC rating you should choose to ensure it is long-lasting. You can find the AC rating of each laminate flooring type on each product page.

What to Consider When Buying Laminate

  • How much traffic does your room endure? Look for laminate with a high AC rating for high traffic areas.

  • Quality – for long-lasting laminate, choose a high thickness.

  • The size of your space – to make a small room look larger, choose wide planks and lighter colors such as light, white and grey.

  • Interior design – ensure the color and effect you choose matches your walls and furniture.

  • Do you require underfloor heating? Most laminate is suitable for underfloor heating systems; check each product page for our "suitable with underfloor heating" certification.

  • Budget – depending on your budget we have affordable laminate for everyone.
