Luxury vinyl tile
Parallel 20 and Parallel 12 luxury vinyl tile are part of the
Continuum Solutions line. With a 20-mil wear layer and
12-mil wear layer, respectively, the products accommodate
multiple performance needs. The high-performance coating
resists scratches, stains, and damages from alcohol-based
hand sanitizers. The ergonomic value offers minimal resistance to moving objects, making it reportedly easy to push,
pull, and roll heavy equipment and furniture. A UV-cured
urethane finish eliminates polishing and spray buffing in
