withstand spills and pet accidents and keep the Armstrong Audacity laminate looking great! Along with being water-resistant Audacity is also extra stain, scratch, and impact resistant. Audacity laminate floors have an extra stain resistant layer AND can be wet mopped.

Armstrong Audacity has the looks of real wood with even more durability due to the water-resistant nature of luxury vinyl. This makes for great looking and durable floor with click installs that:
-Resists household spills
-Can be wet mopped for ease of maintenance
-Can be installed in bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms
-Can be installed over 300% larger areas than traditional laminate floors without unsightly transition strips – Up to 4000 ft!

Typically, resilient and vinyl flooring have certain advantages to normal laminate, such as its waterproofness, but with Armstrong Audacity it is no longer relevant, as Audacity floors can now also be wet-mopped, installed in moist areas and resist household spills. Apart from the above, Audacity also solves the issues related to standard vinyl products:
–Audacity flooring is resistant to high-temperature variations, e.g. in sunny rooms or rooms with large windows;
–Audacity flooring is extra resistant to stains, e.g. spilled coffee or wine;
–Extra resistant to scratches and wear, e.g. from your pet’s untrimmed claws;
–Features a thick (total thickness is 12mm), rigid core – which means no more telegraphing of small subfloor’s imperfections;
–Deep synchronized surface for a more natural and authentic wood look & feel.

How is Armstrong Audacity constructed?
1. The first component is the wear resistance layer. While a standard CE laminate is usually provided with an AC3 wear rating, not compatible with a commercial use, Audacity comes with an AC4 highly resistant, commercial rating. This means you don’t have to worry about high foot traffic or your kids & pets having fun in the house. However, you should keep in mind that no floor covering is impervious to damage;

2. The second layer is a decorative paper. This layer provides the beautiful and unique look that will compliment your interior;

3. The third component is Audacity’s high density, extra stable and 100% natural core, made of wood fibers. The floor’s core is protected against moisture with a special, factory-applied coating;

4. The fourth layer is the balancing layer – this moisture-resistant backing layer guarantees a perfectly balanced board that will not cup or bow when properly installed and maintained;

5. The fifth later is a pre-attached 2mm pad, providing additional comfort and sound absorption. This also means you don’t need an additional underlay.

Armstrong Audacity is also safer in regards to air quality, is easy to install in homes and is a FloorScore certified product. Formaldehyde is a naturally occurring substance not only in all wood, formed by elements found in our environments like carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen but also at low levels, usually less than 0.03 parts per million (ppm), in both outdoor and indoor air. While formaldehyde is naturally occurring, high levels can be harmful to humans.

All Armstrong Audacity floors are subjected to rigorous tests that are designed to ensure that all products abide by the highest standards and do not harm indoor air quality. This makes our floors safe for you and your loved ones.

Armstrong Audacity has taken steps to obtain certification of its claims by a third party, the FloorScore. It is an industry-independent organization that aims to protect human health by enhancing indoor air quality and reducing people’s exposure to pollutants by certifying products for extremely low chemical emissions.
