What is Leoline Flooring?

All Leoline floors are made from PVC, often called vinyl flooring or cushion flooring. Leoline floors differ from luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) or modular vinyl as they are sometimes called, as they come on a roll.

Formed of layers, Leoline is a special type of vinyl flooring, known as heterogeneous vinyl and this gives it several advantages:

  • Enhanced protection with a protective PU lacquer (Superguard)
  • Lasting wear layer
  • Exclusive high-quality designs
  • Tunable performance

By adjusting the thickness of wearlayer and the thickness and density of the PVC foam backing, Leoline flooring can be ‘tuned’ by our experts to perform certain duties better. There are Leoline floors that are better at sound reduction or provide increased recovery from furniture indents in busy spaces for example.


Is Leoline easy to look after?

In a word, yes. Many floors within the Leoline collection feature our (Superguard) protective PU lacquer. This forms a lasting coating on the surface of the floor that makes it really easy to wipe away spills without leaving permanent stains. Even stubborn scuffs and marks can be removed with water and a diluted cleaning solution.

Of course, regular maintenance including the removal of dirt and debris is advisable to keep your Leoline floor in tip top condition. These simple activities should be carried out on a regular basis:

  • Remove dirt daily by vacuuming or sweeping
  • Use a damp cloth or handpad to remove spots and stains
  • Damp mopping
  • For more information on cleaning and maintaining your Leoline floor, download our Maintenance guide.

    Rubber and latex mats and furniture protection should be avoided as these may stain your Leoline floor.


    How long will Leoline last?

    That very much depends on how well you care for it, the amount of footfall that travels upon it and how much of that footfall is in a concentrated area. All of our Leoline floors do come with a warranty though, giving you the peace of mind that we’ll look after you for years to come should there be a problem with your floor.

    Can I use Leoline with Underfloor Heating?

    Leoline is completely safe for use with underfloor heating. In fact, if you are using underfloor heating Leoline vinyl flooring offers a low TOG rating that makes it a great flooring choice, enabling optimum operating conditions.

    Remember, you should always follow the manufacturer's instructions when it comes to operating your underfloor heating system for the first time, giving your floor time to adjust to increased heat over a few days.
