VC Engineered Wood
VC Engineered Wood stands for Vinyl Clip Engineered Wood, which is a newly designed Engineered Wood flooring material that has the practical advantages of Vinyl flooring but at the same time has a solid wood layer at the top.

To appreciate the qualities of VC Engineered Wood, let’s go through the advantages of Vinyl flooring over normal wood or engineered wood flooring.
Vinyl flooring advantages:
1. Easy maintenance
4.Easy, fast and environmentally friendly installation
VC Engineered Wood flooring is designed (as image below) to allow customers to enjoy the good properties of Vinyl flooring above while having real wood flooring.
Technical things to note positively about our VC Engineered Wood:
- 7 layers of UV lacquer instead of standard two coats of varnish
- Magnesium core instead of plywood core
- Clipping system between planks without plywood subfloor
Why is VC Engineered Wood an upgrade from the normal Engineered Wood? Let’s have a quick look below.
|Differences||VC Engineered Wood||Normal Engineered Wood||Advantages|
|Top Coating||7 layers of UV Lacquer||1 or 2 coats of varnish||More scratch and stain resistant|
|Centre Core||Magnesium Core||Plywood Core||Resistant to water and termite issues|
|Installation Speed and Implication||Clip system, no glue, no plywood subfloor||Needs plywood subfloor and glue||Faster and chemical-free installation|
|Thickness||10 mm direct lay||Normally 20 mm or above with plywood subfloor||No need to trim doors, etc as the floor is not thick|
|Method of Installation||Can direct lay to any floor: concrete, tiles, wood, marbles, etc||Ideally concrete base floor||No need to spend money to hack old flooring before installing new floor|
