The company’s LF Tile and Plank, made of
heavy-duty vinyl, are designed to be in-
stalled either glued down or loose lay (no
glue) and feature Tajima’s patented anti-
slip backing. Installing over existing floors
and without glue has both cost and speed
advantages, particular in store renovation
projects. The 5mm total thickness provides
sound absorption and helps to minimize
fatigue for shoppers. Both wood plank and
tile formats come in a variety of visuals,
and the 20-inch-square tile can be used in
combination with the 40-inch-long plank
to create modular designs. All LF products
can also be used as no-wax items.
