Abrasion Criteria (AC) is a numerical rating system from one to five that determines the product's strength and ability to withstand various levels of foot traffic and wear. AC is the most accurate rating system, the one many experts depend upon, and the products must undergo stringent testing. If they fail just one test, the product is disqualified!
The AC Rating is broken down into residential and commercial categories. AC-3 and AC-4 are considered the best for residential, as they withstand moderate and heavy foot traffic, respectively. AC-5 is reserved for commercial installations.
Laminate thicknesses range from 6-mm to 12-mm. If you have selected a wood-look laminate, you can go as high as 10-mm or 12-mm to get the most high quality, authentic feeling underfoot. If the budget’s an issue, and if the subfloor is level and in excellent condition, you might be able to get away with a 7-mm or 8-mm.
