In terms of durability and durability, laminates can compete with the most popular natural floor coverings. Professionals recommend laminate flooring to homeowners. Although lightweight, high-quality laminates can last for years. Most consumers believe that thickness is the main factor determining the toughness and quality of laminate flooring. Let us explain this matter through the opinion of experts.
Is thickness a function of durability?
The thickness of the laminate floors is measured in millimeters. Measurement starts from below, is supported at the base, and ends at the top. Floor experts believe that the durability of a laminate does not depend only on its thickness. The bottom line is that thicker products are not necessarily stronger than much thinner laminates.

Instead of thickness, consumers should look at the type of laminate. Is it HPL or DPL? There is a fundamental difference between the two. HPL means high-pressure laminate, which consists of at least five layers. Meanwhile, DPL or direct print lamination only has four layers. HPL products are more durable than DPL products, not because they have more layers. The production process and the core quality of the lamination are what makes letterpress lamination products stronger than direct print lamination products.
What are the advantages of thicker laminates?
Thicker laminate boards offer several advantages over thinner ones. First, thicker laminates are less likely to deform when exposed to water or excess moisture. Second, thicker laminates made with high-quality fiberboard can withstand over time and strength can cause thinner products to wear out. If the relief quality is also excellent, you get great value for money with thicker laminate boards for your home.
