    3. Look and Colour - We've got a stunning range of colours that accurately mimic the natural beauty of real timber floorboards, including light, medium, dark, warm and cool colours. We also offer an exciting range that imitates popular tile designs such as marble, stone and terrazzo.

    Benefits of Hybrid Flooring

    Hybrid flooring is taking off in Australia and all around the globe for a good reason. Not only is it an incredibly beautiful flooring option for any home, it comes with a number of major benefits that are making it a popular choice for many homeowners. These benefits include:

    1. Affordability - As a floating floor, hybrid flooring can be installed directly over your existing floor to save money. They're easy to put together and eliminate any need for preparation, gluing or installation costs.
    2. Durability - With a hard-wearing topcoat, this flooring is dent and scratch resistant which makes it perfect for high-traffic areas that are prone to wear and tear.
    3. Fade Resistant - These floors have a UV resistant topcoat which means that they won't fade in bright areas and will keep looking new for many years.
    4. Easy Maintenance - Hybrid floors are easy to clean as there are no gaps in between the boards for dirt to build up. Their water resistance also ensures easy clean up after household spills and accidents.
    5. Acoustic Sound - Most hybrid floors have an acoustic underlay built-in underneath that makes sounds softer and more muted while increasing the comfort of walking on them.
    6. Warranty - All of our flooring range is covered under warranty so you can buy and install them with complete peace of mind.

    Features of Hybrid Flooring

    Hybrid flooring combines the water-resistant nature of luxury vinyl planks with the strength and durability of laminate flooring to deliver an innovative product that looks and feels like real timbe flooring.

    There are some key features that go into making the layers of a hybrid floor. 

    First, there's the top layer which has a scratch, dent, stain, water and UV resistant coating. Next is the print layer which can accurately replicate the beautiful design and colour of real wood, tile, marble and more.

    A core board is then used to provide strength, typically followed with an acoustic underlay to dampen sound and provide ultimate comfort.

    WPC, SPC, IPC, EPC and MGO - Understand the Differences

    Hybrid floors come in many different flooring types – WPC, SPC, IPC, EPC and MGO.

    SPC stands for Stone Plastic Composite floorboards which have a core composition made of limestone and PVC. This flooring is highly durable and so easy to clean, it is perfect for low maintenance living.

    WPC is a Wood Plastic Composite that is crafted from recycled wood and PVC. These floors ensure underfoot comfort and have excellent acoustic properties.

    IPC is an Infused Polymer Core, which is tough and silica free. This technology protects against the airborne crystalline silica that can negatively impact the health and wellbeing of our customers.

    EPC is an Engineered Plastic Core, which creates increased stability and is well suited to high-traffic areas of the home or office.

    MGO is a Reinforced Mineral Core made of Magnesium Oxide which is a strong yet highly lightweight material. This flooring is ideal for high-density areas as it is resistant to mould, mildew and harmful bacteria.

    Durability of Hybrid Flooring

    When you choose hybrid flooring at Carpet Court, you'll be getting a high-quality, hard flooring solution that can withstand all of the bumps, dents and scratches that are common in a busy household or office. 

    With rigid core technology, hybrid floors are expertly manufactured to resist most wear and tear caused by heavy furniture, foot traffic, kids, pets and more. It also holds up against stains and UV light, making it the perfect option for any home or business.

    Hybrid Flooring Can Be Installed Over Sub-Flooring

    Hybrid flooring is a floating floor that can go directly over a subfloor to save time and money. You'll need to ensure the subfloor is flat and smooth before installing. If your subfloor is suffering from some wear and tear, hybrid floorboards will be able to conceal any imperfections without dents coming through.

    Installing Hybrid Flooring

    A hybrid floor is very easy to install which makes it a popular choice for DIY home builders. It uses a click and lock method that allow you to lay down hybrid planks without the need for any adhesives. Simply remove any unsuitable current flooring and slide the planks together until they click. You many need to tap gently with a rubber mallet to get them to fit and lock together securely.
