Wood plastic composite (WPC) vinyl planks are quickly becoming one of the most popular flooring options in building projects worldwide. The design and construction industry is developing the next generation of rigid vinyl plank solutions to address critical performance issues, which use a stone plastic composite (SPC) to deliver performance where WPC falls short.
Download this whitepaper for a closer look at how SPC rigid vinyl planks stack up against WPC as a complete flooring solution.
With rising urban populations and increasing rates of car ownership, the demand for multi-residential developments in our already crowded cities through multi-storey car parks are becoming a valued feature of the urban environment. In light of this growing demand, today’s designers must equip themselves with the knowledge to enable safe and effective car park design.
