Mannington’s Sobella™

Mannington’s Sobella™ flooring offers comfort, style and durability thanks to its flexible fiberglass core, which provides (quite literally) a cushion of support underfoot.  The fiberglass is softer and more flexible than traditional “felt backed” resilient flooring, which makes it soft on your feet as well as easier to install. And it’s easy to care for, easy to clean, and easy to live with.  Like all Mannington hard-surface flooring, Sobella™ won’t trap dust, pet dander or other allergens, so it contributes to good indoor air quality for your family.  Most spills clean up with just soap and water, and regular cleaning is as easy as sweeping up with a microfiber cloth duster.

Sobella Omni HD offers an exceptional technological advancement; something unprecedented in fiberglass.  Mannington’s proprietary NatureForm® HD technology allows the creation of patterns with amazing depth and clarity.  With pattern visuals that are 200% sharper than before, Sobella Omni HD also offers superior resistance to wear and staining, and its exceptional thickness makes it the most comfortable resilient floor on the market.  Sobella Omni HD is “Everything you want.  Now in perfect focus.”

Sobella Supreme offers unique looks combined with state of the art technologies like NatureForm Optix™ – a proprietary process that combines the beauty of nature with the latest advances in printing, texturing and finishing – and ScratchResist™ – which improves the floor’s resistance to everyday household wear and tear.  The result is beautiful floors that you can love for a long time.

Sobella Classic offers a variety of more traditional looks, created using Mannington’s original NatureForm process which recreates the depth and realism of natural looks and SurfaceGuard, which provides exceptional resistance to everyday wear and staining.


Flexitec luxury vinyl has a exceptional molecular structure and can be used in an infinite number of applications. It is a very flexible material that creates a world of flooring opportunities. In recent years, great progress in technology has enhanced the performance of vinyl flooring spectacularly, especially in the areas of durability against rips, tears and gauges.

Vinyl floors are known for their ease of maintenance and are unaffected by high levels of humidity, which makes them an obvious choice for high moisture areas such as kitchens or bathrooms. However, vinyl is also a perfect alternative for any other room in your home where you require a beautiful, durable and easy-to-clean floor that creates a luxurious and warm feel underfoot.

The structure of your vinyl floor largely determines its durablility and how well it will resist scuffs, scrapes and stains while retaining its original luster. Flexitec has a unique structural composition allowing you to select a floor type that will match your personal performance requirements.

At its core, Flexitec vinyl has a highly resilient fiberglass base, double encapsulated by pvc layers. Thanks to this revolutionary construction, your floor has unmatched dimensional stability eliminating conventional problems of contraction, expansion, curling and cracking, relulting in easy installation and higher durability. The unique characteristics of pvc gives you higher underfoot comfort and unparalleled flexibility combined with excellent resistance to everyday wear and tear.

Comfort Foam is a luxurious cushioned vinyl backing supporting the vinyl structure and offering a base for indentation resistance. This backing reduces impact noise and sound transmission while guaranteeing unmatched underfoot comfort. The natural moisture-stop characteristics of pvc provide superior resistance to mold and mildew.

The fiberglass layer combines strength with flexibility, ensuring an easy and trouble-free installation process. This inter-layer offers your floor a unique dimensional stability, which means that it will not contract, expand, crack or curl.

On top of the fiberglass layer comes a cushioned vinyl foam layer, allowing additional indentation recovery thanks to its resilient nature.

The wearlayer determines the actual wear performance of your floor. The higher the wearlayer the more durable your floor. The wearlayer will give your floor its protection and resistance against general wear, dents, cuts and scratches, while retaining its lasting finish. The unique Quick Clean benefit offers you extra durability and better definition of design and color, ensuring a long-lasting luster and beauty for your floor.

The Super Guard finish offers you even better protection. This advanced, urethane-layer resists scuffs, scrapes and stains and the accumulation of dirt and grime. This will allow your floor to retain its new look and ensure easy cleaning and maintenance.
