Cork backed vinyl planks and tiles

Cork backed vinyl plank - Synergy planks

When we received samples of the Synergy, a cork backed vinyl plank and tile collection, our reps were excited. When the team is so enthusiastic about a product, it’s worthy of a blog post.

Vinyl planks and tiles have exploded in popularity over the last few years. Our customers love having the wood or tile look without the drawbacks of each. As a relatively new product category, there are always many ways a good product can be improved to be made even better. The Synergy planks and tiles succeed at doing just that.

The Synergy planks and tiles combine beautiful visuals with a rating for heavy commercial use. The natural embossed finish adds tremendous realism to the wear layer. The vinyl planks and tiles are waterproof, easy-to-clean and stain resistant. But it’s the attached cork backing that makes Synergy a truly unique product. The cork provides added warmth and sound absorption once installed. No glue down installation is necessary either thanks to the click locking system.

With it’s heavy commercial rating, Synergy could be installed in residential or commercial applications. It would be especially great for areas in the home that traditionally have a lot of moisture – think kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms etc.

    I was wondering with the corked back vinyl planks, do you need to level the grout in floor tiles or can you lay them straight onto the tiles?

    • Hi Lyndal,

      The manufacturer of the cork backed vinyl planks we were featuring in this post recommends the following for installing over ceramic tiles:

      “Installation approved providing that the tile is well bonded to a structurally sound subfloor. Use patching compound to fill
      depressions, cracks, voids and grout lines. Fill until all areas are smooth and flat to meet subfloor guidelines (3/16” in 10’ radius).”
