What is UV-Resistant Flooring?

UV-resistant flooring is formulated to withstand ultra-violet rays (UV rays) that emanate from the sun and some man-made lighting. UV light can cause floors to discolor and fade and over time become brittle and fail. UV-resistant flooring comes in both indoor and outdoor applications, including parking decks.

Benefits of UV-Resistant Flooring

UV-resistant flooring keeps floors looking the way they were intended. Without UV protection, floors exposed to UV light will fade and change color. Eventually, without UV protection, floors will also break down, so this special formulation will prevent the need for repair and replacement.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Maintaining a floor's original color, especially important in commercial applications (e.g. retail, hospitality)
  • Keeping the floor from breaking down under continuous exposure to UV light.
  • Preventing financial loss due to shutdowns related to repair or replacement of a failed floor.
