Academy Adds Rigid Vinyl to Course Programme

Eliminating telegraphing through a rigid composite core integrated with flexible layers, Quick-Step Rigid Vinyl upholds LVT’s many benefits, while eliminating one of the product’s primary downfalls. With a soft feel, low indentation, high impact resistance, quiet underfoot and lightweight; Quick-Step Rigid Vinyl represents a ground-breaking new flooring solution.

Introducing correct installation of Rigid Vinyl into the Luxury Vinyl and Laminate Master Installer courses, sees the Academy for Excellence in Flooring provide the very latest skillset to fitting professionals attending the course.

Lee Thompson, technical manager, Academy for Excellence in Flooring, said: “One of the major advantages of the Master Installer accreditation is the ability to provide customers with a workmanship warranty for the lifetime of the floor. With Rigid Vinyl’s ability to accommodate a wider breadth of subfloor conditions, it’s important that we make sure our professionals understand the product’s limitations, as well as its many benefits. We’ve restructured our course to include Quick-Step Rigid Vinyl so they can confidently assess the site conditions, as well as understand the product’s technical capabilities.”

The Master Installer course trains professionals to the highest standard covering everything from health and safety to correct subfloor preparation, adhesives, underlayments, layouts, installation, underfloor heating, staircases, accessories and maintenance; the two-day intensive pass or fail course is among the industry’s most comprehensive.

“With the addition of this product, installers are equipped with a skillset in a rapidly growing category. Generating improved consumer confidence thanks to an installation of the highest standard backed by a 33-year warranty, the Master Installer course is a great way to improve knowledge and boost revenue,” concludes Lee Thompson.
