AC rating, or Abrasion Criteria rating, is a measure of a laminate floor’s durability and ability to withstand wear and tear.
It is an industry-standard rating system that helps consumers and professionals assess the suitability of laminate flooring for different applications. The rating is determined by a series of tests that simulate the wear and tear that the flooring may experience in different settings, such as in a residential or commercial environment.
The AC rating scale ranges from AC1 to AC5, with AC1 being the lowest and AC5 being the highest level of durability.
The AC rating is an important consideration when choosing a flooring type, especially for high-traffic areas or commercial settings.
A higher AC rating generally means that the flooring will be more durable and resistant to scratches, dents, and other types of damage.
