Shabby Chic Majestic Prime Luxury Vinyl Plank is a glue-down flooring. Majestic Collection is a 2 mm thick vinyl that has a 6-mil wear layer. So, what is a wear layer? The wear layer is a clear PVC film that is applied over the photographic layer. The wear layer adds an extra boost of durability and extends the life of your vinyl floor. For example, if you roll a chair over the same place, again and again, it is the wear layer you are wearing down. The chair would have to get past the wear layer before it would affect the photographic layer or the coloring of the floor. Simply put, it helps your floor last longer.
Majestic Collection is Embossed-in-register. Embossed in Register is a relatively new technology. Embossed flooring is made using the same process as non-embossed vinyl. However, during the heating process, the manufacturers use a special plate to give it that textured look. It is integrated into the wear layer. This gives it not only texture but the graining as well. Embossed in Register flooring has become extremely popular. Everyone loves the texture of real hardwood floors, but not the cost and maintenance.
Because Shaw cares about the health of its customers, the Majestic Collection is Floor Score Certified. In other words, it is a third-party certification that tests and measures the risk of indoor air quality. A primary concern of indoor air quality is the emission level of specific volatile organic compounds or VOCs. Poor indoor air quality is caused by inadequate ventilation, poor cleaning, and excessive emissions of VOCs from surfaces and finishes. Products bearing the floor score label meet the stringent indoor air quality emissions criteria.
So, what does this mean to you? It means that your family can breathe easier. Studies show that many of us spend as much as 90% of our time indoors, at home, at work, or at school. If you are breathing poor quality air, you could be facing a higher risk level for a variety of health problems. Therefore, you should keep Floor Score Certified in mind when shopping for floors.
