Installing Metroflor Aspire (Groutable LVT)

Aspire groutable luxury vinyl tile proves you can have it all! Beautiful, natural tile and stone visuals, plus important benefits only resilient flooring can offer: warmth underfoot, easy care, moisture resistance, no cracking and high resistance to scuffs and scratches. Plus, Aspire “floats” over most existing hard surfaces, so it’s easier, faster and cleaner to install. 

Metroflor Aspire is a 16″ x 16″ floating Luxury Vinyl Tile that may be installed grouted (1/8″ spacing) or un-grouted. Metroflor Apire comes in 3 collections (NAPLES, NOVARA, and SIRACUSA), 14 total colors. Metroflor Aspire is a 5mm thick product with a 12 mil Ceramic Bead finish. Aspire may be installed one of 3 ways;

  • Corner to Corner install with grout (1/8″ grout spacing using the Prevail Spacers)
  • Staggered Joint with grout (1/8″ grout spacing using the Prevail Spacers) 
  • Staggered Joint with no grout 

 

Aspire eliminates the need for costly Luxury Vinyl Tile Adhesives and the time it requires them to dry. Aspire also eliminates the need for Congoleum Underflor and Mannington MUL, so that traditional glue down LVT products may be floated. 

Aspire may also be installed over the Prevail Underlayment pad for additional sound, warmth, and comfort.
