Whispering Wood Impact Click Lock Vinyl by Shaw is a 7″ x 48″ vinyl plank with an overall thickness of 3.4 mm. It also has a 6 mil wear layer. So, what is a wear layer? The wear layer is the top surface that’s applied to the print film or photographic layer that helps your floor last longer. For example, if you rolled around your floor on a desk chair, the wear layer is what is protecting your floor from wearing down to the color. The wear layer adds an extra boost of durability and extends the life of your vinyl flooring. As you may have guessed the thicker the wear layer the tougher the flooring will be.
One of the main advantages of this Shaw floor is the resilient ArmourBead Finish wear layer that provides tremendous performance. It’s 5 times more durable than the average urethane based coating surfaces, making this suitable for residential homes or commercial areas.
