Construction of multi-layer vinyl floor tiles (PVC floors) and soft baseboards│AGLUCA, an apparel company in Yamanashi

We would like to introduce the construction of the "floor" and soft baseboards at the sewing factory.

This time, we chose multilayer vinyl floor tiles (PVC flooring) considering the design, price (cost performance), and durability. It describes the process of applying glue and pasting PVC tiles and what kind of glue is used.

We also considered the ease of cleaning, price, and design of the baseboards.

◼︎Prerequisite information

・Purchased a used cast concrete (RC) property in Shiotsu, Uenohara City, Yamanashi Prefecture.

・The first floor, which was originally a warehouse and parking lot, will be renovated to create an apparel sewing factory.

・Since there is no insulation or secrecy, and the performance of the original windows and sashes is low, we aim to make the building highly airtight and highly insulated through renovations to create a comfortable working environment.

・Request to a local construction company in Uenohara City

For the wallpaper, I chose the color LB9458 from Lily Color Base LB.

After installing wallpaper and flooring, we will install baseboards at the final stage.

Torisoft baseboard (Habaki)

Baseboard is something that protects the joint between the floor and wall, and is often made of wood.

What is baseboard?

I put some baseboards on the floor before construction started.

Tolisha's soft baseboard

Torisoft baseboard

As the name suggests, it is soft and narrow, so it has the advantage of being difficult to collect dust.

I also wanted to keep everything gray, so I naturally chose this product.

I painted the boundary between the floor and wall in gray (a bit blue).

Generally, it is made of brown wood and is approximately 1 cm deep.

Dust accumulates there and is difficult to clean.

This soft baseboard was the right choice for its design, color, ease of cleaning, and price.
