    Does Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) work okay with a wheelchair?

    We are getting ready to redo our kitchen floor and get rid of the old sheet vinyl. I like the LVT and we had a rep come out and measure for it yesterday but he has some concerns with the edges of the squares showing a lot of wear due to my w/c. There is the option to glue down and use grout or not grout (edges of tile butt directly up to each other) or do a floating (locking) floor. I did some research online and I don't see any issues with the LVT and chairs but I wanted to see if anyone here has installed it?

    Thanks,
    Andy

    I had LVT installed last April, it was glued down, edge to edge without grout. Looks great and no problems.

    Mine started breaking down under the weight of my hospital bed. I finally replaced it. Vinyl is terrible to remove.

    Luxury = Vinyl? Sounds mutually exclusive?
