If you have looked at the Mannington lines of flooring you might notice the Adura Max and the Adura MaxAPEX are listed in different categories, but have generally the same specs. Lets clear up what is similar and what is different.
Here are the similar specs:
- Both have expanded polymer core (also known as WPC)
- Be installed over existing hard surface floors, including those with grout lines (like ceramic tile)
- Features a thicker, more rigid waterproof core called HydroLoc™
- Features ScratchResist®, a premium scratch resistant surface protector, which helps keep floors looking newer, longer.
- FloorScore® certified which means they are independently tested and meet stringent indoor air quality standards. This certification also qualifies all floors for low VOCs.
- Same Ultra-Quiet Pad for greater sound reduction and comfort.
What Sets them Apart
Even though they may seem very similar, they do have their differences:
- Adura MaxAPEX is not available in luxury vinyl tile
- Adura MaxAPEX main difference is the improved level of style and design
- Adura MaxAPEX includes longer (lengths up to 72″), wider, planks and even multiple width planks.
- Adura MaxAPEX has a deeper texture, that more closely resembles the wood grain layer.
