LAMILUX Composites Floor revolutionises caravan flooring design
Caravan construction is also seeing a trend towards weight reduction to provide greater efficiency. A lighter floor design is playing an increasingly more important role in this respect. Heavy wood, which also absorbs moisture and is susceptible to mould, can now be replaced by a lightweight sandwich structure laminated with composite. LAMILUX has developed a new material specifically for this field of use. An innovative, odour-free flooring is now available to caravan manufacturers in LAMILUX Composites Floor.
