Lay flat vinyl gets its name from the fact that it has a very stable structure, and doesn't curl up at the edges like other resilient sheet products.

Its stability comes from the layer of fibreglass that helps to balance the other layers.

In this section, we'll look at the structure of lay flat vinyl to see how the different layers are arranged.

We'll also discuss the adhesives used to stick it down and the tools and equipment required to carry out the installation.
