Skuggi Hotel, Reykjavik

InstaLay 30hg

skuggi hotel


The Skuggi Hotel in Reykjavik, a member of the Kea Hotels Group, wanted new LVT flooring in the corridors and all 100 of its rooms. The Hotel was looking for a floor that could deliver a high acoustic performance in order to create a quieter, more pleasant environment for its guests.

InstaLay was chosen for its superior acoustic qualities and its durability in commercial applications. The InstaLay was simply loose laid over the concrete sub-floor. The commercial quality 2.5mm LVTs were then positioned and pressed into place as the release film was removed to expose InstaLay’s high grab self-adhesive membrane.

With no wet adhesives or drying times required, the installation of over 1,500 sq.m. (16,100 sq.ft.) of LVT flooring was both quick and clean. The new floor could be walked on immediately, so disruption to hotel business was kept to a minimum on this time-sensitive project.

The new LVT flooring added underfoot comfort and appeal for hotel guests, while InstaLay’s impressive acoustic performance made rooms and corridors feel quieter and more relaxing.

We can make your next LVT flooring installation quick and clean. Get in touch with InstaFloor for expert guidance.
