Specially-engineered without layers, fillers and laminates commonly used in other vinyl flooring, AquaTread® resists water above and below its surface for years of fun in the sun. Better Life Technology recently returned from the IBEX marine show in Tampa, Florida. As an exhibitor, we received many questions regarding the difference between our 100% polyvinyl waterproof flooring and woven fabric flooring. Here’s why AquaTread® Marine Flooring matters to the marine industry, OEMs and individual boaters. The leading ultra-durable and seamless marine flooring, AquaTread, is installed on boats around the world for good reason. Although boating enthusiasts reap many benefits with our 100% polyvinyl marine flooring, one of AquaTread’s most endearing qualities is its waterproof construction. Proudly made in the USA, AquaTread is engineered differently than other vinyl flooring. We don’t use thin layers that breakdown more quickly, tear more easily and are often more brittle and rigid. Our flooring is 100% solid polyvinyl. As a result of AquaTread’s solid, seamless polyvinyl construction, it won’t puncture, crack, peel, chip or snag from fish hooks, and that means water can’t penetrate above or below your flooring. No worries about mold or mildew damage and your substrate is protected from spills, wood rot and years of heavy use. Even power washing won’t harm or break down AquaTread’s polyvinyl. Another unique trait of AquaTread is that our boat flooring and pontoon flooring will stand out from all the others. We actually have the ability to do custom imaged flooring and patterns that no one else in the industry can produce. Your boat will turn some heads. AquaTread is UV stable and images are printed underneath our 100% polyvinyl, not on top or in between like competitors, so your flooring will retain its beauty and color even with long-term water and sun exposure. But there’s more… AquaTread is manufactured with a spun bound backing that is easy to roll out and install and custom fit to any length of boat. The polyvinyl surface is non-porous making clean up of common boating spills a breeze, even oil, gas and chemicals. AquaTread keeps fish and marine smells at bay, too. Our low maintenance polyvinyl flooring is slip-resistant and flame retardant for added boating safety. With over 22 colors, patterns, and custom options available, AquaTread provides a luxurious touch to your pontoon without the expense and maintenance of real wood or leather. You’ll spend more time doing what you love in your boat with high-performing, long-lasting, head-turning AquaTread Marine Flooring!
