Linoleum thickness: which strengths are possible?

Linoleum is not available in a uniform thickness, but in different strengths. What strengths are common today, and where the standard thicknesses are, read in this post.

Linoleum can be different in thickness

Linoleum is today produced and offered in different strengths. Not all designs and structures are available in all strengths, but above all the later purpose of linoleum is crucial.

  • 4 mm is the thickest linoleum form currently available on the market
  • 2 mm is the smallest thickness today
  • In addition, 2.5 and 3.2 mm are still widespread thicknesses in the trade

For the thickness of linoleum, the stronger the material, the more resistant it is. So if you need a high-resistant floor, you should set especially on the strength of 4 mm.

On the other hand, there are different thicknesses for special shapes - such as the Korkment, a combination of linoleum and cork flooring, which offers particularly good soundproofing and cushioning and is a very pleasant floor covering. Here, coarser cork flour is used, whereby the thickness also assumes partially different values.

Construction height changes again by rolling

Normally, the linoleum floor should be rolled again smooth after gluing with an iron roller - which of course changes the thickness of the linoleum once again slightly.

Linoleum is also interesting for renovation measures, as it hardly interferes with its very low construction height and, after filling, can even be glued to old tile mirrors. Especially where high floor coverings are not possible, linoleum is a good and lasting and above all ecological alternative, which is also bacteriostatic, acid-proof and flame-retardant.

Tips & Tricks

You can also provide linoleum with an additional layer of foot insulation by simply laying cork under the linoleum. This significantly increases the already very positive properties of the flooring.
