Customer Questions

Ask a Question
How does this compare to other products like Coretec?
TritonCORE vinyl flooring is very similar to the Coretec products in size. Like Coretec, TritonCORE has underlayment attached and has an attractive color offering. Unlike Coretec, ALL TritonCORE colors are available to ship same or next business day.
Can this be used in a home that is not climate controlled all year round?
Waterproof floors are typically stable between 32 and 140 degrees. TritonCORE would be just fine for this use.
Can this be DIY? When I pulled my tile from my bathroom some of the sub floor stuck to the tile. Would the TRITONCORE work over the uneven spots in the sub floor? If so can this be purchased the Baton Rouge Louisiana area? Thanks Penny
WPC floors can be installed over floors that are slightly uneven. Make sure that high spots are sanded down or very low spots are filled in.
Will a grand piano damage the waterproof vinyl flooring, eg. TritonCore7?
Objects of heavy weight need to be set using floor protectors to help distribute the weight.
My existing flooring is carpet flooring with padding. I can still hear my downstairs neighbors. Will this flooring provide enough soundproofing. If not can I add any additional sound barrier that is recommended
Our TritonCORE has not been tested for sound ratings, however, you may use any of our rubber underlayment under the flooring to help with sound-proofing.
I am told to be wary of the toxic Oder that comes off of flooring. I think it called the VOC? How does tricor compare? Thank you
TritonCORE passes FloorScore® Certification for Indoor Air Quality.
I’ve just bought a home that has brand new laminate through out. I don’t like the dark cherry color. If I want to install your brand can it go on top of the old or does that all have to be removed?
TritonCORE planks can be installed over and level, clean subfloor surface. You can install this over your laminate floor.
if i get water under this floor will mold be a problem?
Jeremiah Hundley
If water gets underneath the planks, you would want to remove the flooring and let your subfloor as well as the plank dry before placing them down again. Water stuck beneath flooring could become moldy.
Would this hold up on a wall??
Ofelia Porras
We have never tested for any use other than for use as flooring. You would have to interlock and glue the planks. Once adhered, they should perform just fine.
I have a "Trap Door" located in the middle of the floor to allow access to a basement. Can this floor be glued or nailed down to the trap door? If so, what is the recommended glue/nailing method?
You can glue the planks the that area. You can use our Mega Bond 5900 pressure sensitive adhesive for that area.
can this be installed over engineered glue down wood 3/8" , on a cement slab, it was put down with bostic wood glue with mvp in it. we live in florida. thanks
diane maciejewski
Tritoncore can be installed over any flat, stable subfloor.
Can I install kitchen cabinets on top of the TritonCore7 flooring?
TritonCORE is engineered to be installed utilizing the floating method. Do not install cabinets or fixed objects on top of the planks. Proper expansion space is required.
Can this be used in a basement which may flood? can these tiles be submerged in water without getting ruined?
Yes, our TritonCORE vinyl planks are waterproof. If flooding occurs, you can pull the planks up to allow your subfloor to dry. Also allow the planks to set out and dry before reinstalling.
Is this phthalate free? What kind of green certification (indoor quality) does it have?
TritonCORE passes FloorScore® Certification for Indoor Air Quality.
What is the maximum allowable run for this product before transitions are required ?
1000 sq ft
Does TritonCore contain potentially harmful phthalates in their plasticizers.
Wanda Taliaferro
TritonCORE passes FloorScore® Certification for Indoor Air Quality.
Would like to know if this product is phalate-free. Floorscore certs do not include any testing of phalates since they are not considered hazardous to air. So does your product contain phalates?
TritonCORE has not been tested for phthalates specifically but has been tested: Formaldehyde emission according to EN 717-1:2004, results: undetectable.
What is the sound proof rating of the life Proof Rigid Core Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Robert J Lukasik
Our TritonCORE has not been tested for sound ratings.
It says 100% waterproof but then says to clean up spills immediately to prevent damage, how is that even remotely close to being waterproof?
Sierra Woodhouse
Waterproof vinyl floors are waterproof, and will not swell due to moisture or excess water. It is common practice to clean up spills immediately as to reduce likelihood of staining the floor as well and to remove a potentially dangerous slipping hazard.
how do I install the transition piece on concrete floor? Should I nail it or glue it down?
You can glue it down.
Can TritonCORE 7" be installed under my kitchen appliances, Gas Range, Dishwasher, and Refrigerator?
Ronald Janes
Do not install cabinets or fixed objects on top of the vinyl planks. Proper expansion space is required.
Is it ok to use caucking around the edge instead of 1/4 round?
arland childers
Yes, you can do that if you'd like. Be sure to allow enough space for expansion.
Where is the triton made? Cortec?
Triton is made from a WPC core.
Does this product line (TritonCORE) incorporate UV protection?
Rich Schaefer
This product has not been tested for UV as of yet.
I want to install this flooring throughout several rooms and hallways in my house totaling approximately 1800 sqft. While I understand that this is designed as click flooring, can I glue the flooring down to prevent the need for transitional pieces?
Yes, you are able to glue down the triton core. One thing that you will need to be careful is to not get any glue in the tongue and groove of the product and be sure to glue just the bottom of the plank so there is no issue of the product locking together.
Does Triton flooring require any type of Quietwalk or similar product to ease noise when walking on the floor?
TritonCore does not require the additional underlayment to ease noise however you may add more padding like rubber underlayment or a 4 in 1 underlayment to help reduce sound for tritoncore.
Tritoncore is a waterproof plank and is able to withstand everyday kitchen/eating area. This product would come with worry-free water damage and is resistant to expansion vs contraction.
is this product great for large open areas like 2500 sq.ft., dog traffic and people traffic? where it won't come apart?
Ray Minando
The maximum allowable run for TritonCORE 7" Waterproof Vinyl Planks before the transition is 1000 sq ft. After the 1000 sq ft, you may use our TritonCORE 1.65" x 94" T-Molding & Track as trim and then continue installing the rest of the floor.
If I drop ice cubes and miss one, how slick is the little puddle? Does any of the flooring have traction when wet?
The puddle could be a little slick, we recommend cleaning the water as soon as possible.
Is this product good to use in a dog day care and boarding facility? Will this stand up to high traffic use in this type of environment? Will this product be waterproof even in the seams with pet urine?
Dorinne Whynott
Yes, our Tritoncore 7" Waterproof Vinyl Planks can be used in dog daycares and they will be able to withstand the high traffic. As long as the product is correctly installed and the seams are correctly placed next to each other, the locking mechanism would forbid water from going through the seams. However, we do recommend cleaning up spills immediately to reduce the likelihood of staining the floor as well and to remove a potentially dangerous slipping hazard.
Thinking of installing this floor through my condo. I understand TritonCore is waterproof but subject to mold if standing water or flooding occurs. Would you recommended this type of floor for a high-rise condo building where leaks can occur regularly, particularly in the kitchen, laundry and bathroom?
Our TritonCORE 7" Waterproof Vinyl Planks can be used in areas with regular leaks. These planks will hold the water on the surface. However, we recommend cleaning the water as soon as possible since the water could be a slipping hazard. Also, mold will be an issue if water gets underneath the floor. We recommend free-floating these planks instead of gluing them, so when water does get under the planks, you may simply pick the planks up and clean the water that is underneath and lay the planks back when dry.
interested in the TritonCore 7" Where is it manufactured ?
Our TritonCORE 7" Waterproof Vinyl Planks are manufactured in China.
I ordered TritonCore floor in Tradition oak for my basement. There is a also a bathroom down the basement. I wanted to put a different floor in the bathroom. If I but the t-molding and track can I chose another floor. I am looking for more of the waterproof tile look not the hardwood for the bathroom. It looks like the TritonCore only had the hardwood look. Thank you!!
Lisa Eagel
For basement bathrooms, you may use any of our drainage tiles. These tiles are slip-resistant and work great for bathrooms. You may also see our vinyl tiles that come in different patterns!
Can these planks be used as stair treads?
Yes, these planks can be used as stair trends.
Is this safe to use on a rental unit/can it be removed?
Alexandra Atsidis
Yes, our TritonCORE 7" Waterproof Vinyl Planks are great for rentals and can be removed easily. We'd recommend a glue-free installation, so you won't have any trouble taking them out.
can I put this in the garage for gym purpose?
Yes! You may use these planks as a gym flooring, but note that these planks won't be the best at providing shock absorption. You may want to use gym mats under your equipment to avoid any damage to the vinyl flooring.
