A type of flooring which designed to be durable, resistant to stains and water, and comfortable to stand and work on. There are a several static control options within the resilient flooring category, at a range of price points. The most common types of resilient flooring are made with vinyl, nitrile rubber and recycled rubber. These materials are all known for being extremely durable while providing some level of cushioning versus hard concrete. Rubber is especially good for this, providing an exceptional ergonomic walking surface. Another common trait of resilient flooring is resistance to stains, which includes chemicals, dirt, and liquids. Some static control resilient floors can be treated with an upper layer of static free wax to make them even more stain resistant and easier to clean. Resilient flooring resists penetration by water, making it less likely than textile based flooring to become a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Resilient flooring withstands heavy foot traffic. The materials used to make resilient flooring resist scuffing and damage from rolling furniture, dollies, or pallet jacks which are dragged across the floor. Rubber flooring is also slip resistant, making it an ideal solution for wet applications in manufacturing facilities.
