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.
Would I need to put something down underneath it?
These engineered waterproof planks come cork with underlayment attached, so you would not need to add any underlay. If you are installing over a concrete subfloor, you will want to put down a moisture barrier so that any moisture does not come up through the floor and get trapped between the subfloor and planks.
Would this be safe with radiant heated floors?
TritonCORE WPC Flooring is safe for use with radiant heated floors.
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 I put this in my basement?
TritonCORE can be installed on any level of the home and would be perfect for your basement.
I want to put this in my home office but I am worried about denting the floor from the chair and weight of the desk. Will it be okay?
We recommend putting felt furniture pads underneath the legs of any desk or other heavy item. Also, if you have a rolling chair, be sure to use a chair mat underneath where you sit to protect the surface of the floor.
I love how it looks - how do I keep it clean?
We recommend daily or weekly dust mopping to pick up dirt, grit, dust etc. Clean up spills immediately to prevent damage to the floor. Lightly damp mop with well wrung mop.
What is the pattern repeat on theses planks, and flush stairnose?
LM Howard
The TritonCORE has a pattern repeat of 6 planks.
Vintage Oak says high variation - what does that mean exactly?
High variation means that there is a lot of color difference between planks, even within a single box. High variation planks offer a more random look with a lot of different shades across the floor.
What is the wear layer?
The wear layer on this engineered waterproof vinyl planks is 20 mil, which is commercially rated.
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.
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

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 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.

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

Is it ok to use caucking around the edge instead of 1/4 round?
arland childers

Where is the triton made? Cortec?

Does this product line (TritonCORE) incorporate UV protection?
Rich Schaefer

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.
Does this product have added urea formaldehyde? Although it says "FloorScore," I can't actually find it on FloorScore; is it certified low VOC?
This product is FloorScore certified. Formaldehyde emission according to EN 717-1:2004 - undetectable.
Wondering how ridged this 5/16" flooring is? I want to use it in my camping trailer that has dips in the floor between the joists. Joists are like every 18' apart. Thx for any answers. -Robert-
Rigid waterproof planks, subfloor should be dry and level to 3/16” per 10 ft. radius for best installation results.
Can this product be used outdoors?
I have a tongue and groove oak floor in my kitchen that is pretty warn down. The seems are all tight and the floor has very little movement. Would this work there or do I need an additional underlayment.
As long as the floor/subfloor it level and won't move, you should be fine to install TritonCORE directly over.
