Flooring is a product that can be found in a wide variety of materials, it is literally "Walked allover" and has to withstand a very wide range of loads. However, floor coverings are also an item of furniture/ a design element that accompanies us every day for many years. The decision-making process for the right floor covering is therefore dependent on many different factors/ properties (area of application, robustness, installation, decor...).

With the following information/answers to the most frequently asked questions we would like to support you in your choice for your new floor.

If you have any further questions, please contact us by e-mail at support@flooring.com or call our Technical Customer Service/ Application Engineering.

Which stress/usage classes are there?

Which stress class is the right one?

Multi-layer modular floor coverings (MMF, EN 16511) and laminate flooring (EPLF, EN 13329) marketed in Europe must be classified according to EN ISO 10874 and marked with the corresponding standard symbol, the so-called stress or use class. The stress class is a quality category according to EN 13329/ EN 16511 and provides information about the load capacity and thus the recommended areas of use of the floor. For standard-compliant testing and classification, the products are continuously subjected to standardised tests that ensure a high level of quality assurance.

The higher the stress class, the higher the quality and load-bearing capacity of the product. It is always possible to use a product with a higher stress class in premises with a lower intensity of use, but not vice versa.

The following table provides an overview of the recommended applications for each stress class:

Stress class
Area of use
Intensity of use
Stress level
Application areas
21 Private residence Moderate Temporary use Bedroom, guest room
22 Private residence Normal Continuous use Dining room, living room
23 Private residence High Intensive use Corridor, kitchen
31 Commercial use Moderate Temporary use Hotel room, single office, conference rooms
32 Commercial use Normal Continuous use Offices, waiting rooms
33 Commercial use High Intensive use Open plan offices, boutiques
34 Commercial use Very high Very intensive use Corridors, classrooms, department stores
