Transitioning to Commercial: The Rise of Drop and Click LVT

A standout trend is the transition of Drop and Click Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) from residential to commercial settings. BMD Materials has observed a growing demand for durable, easy-to-install, and low-maintenance flooring solutions in commercial environments. Drop and Click LVT meets these needs perfectly, offering a robust and aesthetically pleasing option for high-traffic areas. Its swift installation process reduces business downtime, aligning with the needs of efficiency-driven businesses in Winnipeg and beyond.

5mm Looselay LVT: The Future of Flooring

The emergence of 5mm Looselay LVT marks a departure from traditional, adhesive-based installation methods. This innovative approach, championed by BMD Materials, offers simplicity and speed, eliminating the need for glue and allowing for easy future replacements or repairs. Architects and designers are quickly recognizing the practical and aesthetic benefits of 5mm Looselay LVT, making it a preferred choice for modern commercial spaces seeking a blend of style and functionality.


A New Focus on Acoustics

In 2024, acoustics have become a central consideration in flooring choices, with a particular emphasis on Impact Isolation Class (IIC) over Sound Transmission Class (STC). BMD Materials underscores the importance of selecting flooring solutions that excel in minimizing impact noise, thereby enhancing the acoustic comfort within commercial spaces. This focus reflects a broader industry trend towards creating quieter, more peaceful environments.
