Stickdown, Flex or Click?
You might be wondering, what's the difference between all these different formats of Allura. Well, Allura Stickdown does exactly what it says on the tin. You stickdown these tiles and planks using vinyl adhesive. The 55 or 70 at the end of the name indicates whether the plank is 0.55mm or 0.70mm in thickness. Not that the naked eye would notice the difference, but 0.70 is angled slightly more towards the commercial customer.
Flex Looselay is an LVT that requires no adhesive but has a grippy substance on the back that stops the tile or plank from slipping around. Having said that, we'd recommend using tackifier underneath for extra security. You can also install this LVT alongside Forbo Tessera and Forbo Westbound carpet tiles due to it's 5mm gauge.
Last, but not least, is the Allura Click. This LVT option allows fast installation of the floor due to the click profile that just snaps each plank in place. This is the easiest option if you're fitting into a residential property for example as its fast and easy - although many professional fitters also prefer click systems.
