luxury vinyl tile (LVT) moldings
Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) and Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) are the fastest growing products in the flooring industry today. Many homeowners, however, have found it difficult to find coordinated moldings with the many colors and patterns that LVT/LVP offers.
Also, LVT/LVP flooring comes in a variety of thicknesses, making it difficult for moldings and especially stair nosing to fit appropriately and easily.
MoldingsOnline.com offers a product line designed exclusively for Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) and Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) floors.
Our LVT/LVP moldings consist of over 68 colors, 8 species (Maple, Pecan/Hickory, Red Oak, White Oak, Rustic Walnut (Acacia), Brazilian Cherry, Cherry, and White Paint), and are also available in unfinished moldings.
Seven molding profiles specifically for the LVT market help to perfect the look of LVT/LVP flooring: Large Stair Nose (161), Small Stair Nose (121), Overlap Reducer (329), Overlap Stair Nose (330), Mini Square Nose (243), Mini T-Mold (702), and Mini Adjustable Stair Nose (058). These seven patent-pending profiles are designed exclusively for use with LVT/LVP flooring, solving the difficult LVT/LVP problem of stair nose fit and sizing on both adhesive flooring and free-floating/click floors. Our Reducer (022) profile is also ideal for LVT/LVP.
Our durable hardwood moldings are designed to upgrade the look of any LVT/LVP flooring application. Our LVT/LVP moldings offer easier sizing, better fits, and a more appropriate look for all LVT/LVP types (stone, marble, tile, wood).
The benefits of our LVT/LVP moldings include better quality, superior color blending, extreme durability, and adaptability to different LVT/LVP manufacturer specifications, as well as being aesthetically pleasing.
With the introduction of our newest LVT/LVP profile (058), you may have noticed a requirement to use an adhesive with every installation. You can install it with nails for most installs, but MUST always use an adhesive as well.
A good adhesive saves time and frustration on the job site. How many times does an installer return to a site where they have installed freshly laid transitions only to find someone has compromised them by walking or tripping on them prior to the time of full cure or bond to the floor transitions?
That is why MOI has done extensive research into our recommendation for the best adhesive for installation of our profiles. Installers need a water-permeable, quick-setting, and maximum-bonding adhesive. Our solution to this perplexing concern in the industry is Loba Wokol’s MS 245 Montinator.
Originally discovered at the FCICA’s convention in Tampa last year, this adhesive is used on concrete, wood, ceramic, LVT, water proof laminates, and polystyrene insulation. This Zero VOC content adhesive sets in 10 minutes and cleans up with mineral spirits. With literally NO OPEN time – no waiting is required. Just apply it through your caulking gun, and be prepared to set the transition in place. Full cure time is 24 to 48 hours.
Available at most flooring distribution businesses, Wokol’s MS 245 Montinator is worth asking for.
