Armstrong Expands Flexstep Fiberglass Vinyl Sheet Line With New Designs & Colors


FlexStep flooring can be installed by three different methods, giving installers a variety of alternatives, from ‘easy in, easy out’ loose lay to traditional full-spread installation to releasable adhesives.

The three types of installation options include modified loose where the vinyl is cut in place and held down in heavy traffic areas with double-sided tape, glue down with releasable adhesive and glue-down with permanent adhesive.

FlexStep, like other encapsulated glass rotovinyl (printed) flooring, is designed to be installed using Glass-Tac tape or Armstrong’s S-288 permanent bond adhesive to create a strong, permanent bond to the floor. The adhesive is easy to trowel and floors can be installed wet or dry to touch. The S-289 releasable adhesive makes it easy to replace the floor once installed, and also allows for easy repairs. Armstrong’s S-761 seam adhesive is a quick and easy seaming method. Plus, it offers excellent seam integrity and creates a monolithic appearance that helps block the penetration of dirt.

“Thanks to its great looks and installation ease, FlexStep is a growing category, not just in property management, but also at roll-stock retailers,” adds Cubell.

All Armstrong resilient floors are third-party FloorScore™ certified for better indoor air quality, and all are compliant with California Section 01350 recognized as the toughest standard in the country.
