A resilient floor (linoleum, PVC floors, rubber) is characterized by its elasticity, giving the flooring a degree of flexibility and ability to return to its original shape after being subjected to a heavy load. In this point of view, flexible floors (linoleum, PVC floors, rubber) are leading the way.
