Swiftlock VINYL plank flooring


Going to order 48 boxes for SwiftLock Gunstock Oak for the basement in three days so it will arrive on a day I am able to pick it up. We shall see how it goes...

Can you provide the number and name of the company to contact ? There is nothing on the box and the local Lowe's didn't have anyone who could answer that question. I thought it was an Armstrong product, but can't find anything about it on their website. Any information would be greatly appreciated !!

Just as a reference here is the link to Lowes instruction page for this product.
It does not tell you how to transition to other flooring though, you will need a transition strip

I found out that Swiftlock is made by Novalis Flooring, which also makes Armstrong - who knew? - and they do not make transitions. We've worked around most of the problems, and are having to use oak transition strips which we will have to match-stain ourselves, to meet up with carpet (hate the metal strips). LOVE the floor - HATE the headache of having to do all of this seek-and-find on my own time. DIY stores should be pro-active in telling buyers that these floors don't have transition strips, and nobody anywhere makes any that will match up. Thank YOU for responding - but the site reference for Lowes gave me a "sorry - under construction" message. Maybe my complaint made it far enough up the chain they removed the ref ??

I was also looking at the Allure Ultra, but some of the thread discusses the difficulty of proper installation, and having to pull it up and re-install.

I took sample planks from HD of the allure ultra, and also of th eLowes Swiftlock...the swiftlock seems to have an easier, and stronger interlock than the Allure Ultra...

The Allure Ultra is lifetime warranty, though, compared to Swiftlock's 25 year...
I just installed the swiftlock Forest Gold vinyl it was very easy to install and locked easily. The floor looks terrific difficult to tell from the real thing. We installed 800 sq ft. Took approx 10 hours. I would recommend it.
Purchased from Lowes paid 3.15/sq ft and I received a 15% veterans discount.

Does anyone have experience with this in a cottage that will be unheated all winter?
