Floor plank being a laminate of two layers of flexible plastic sheet material laminated together in offset relationship
A floor plank (10) is a laminate of two layers (14,16) of flexible plastic sheet material laminated together in offset relationship to define an offset marginal portion (42,58) for each of the layers (14,16). Each of the offset marginal portions (42,58) has oppositely facing adhesive coated surfaces. A foam layer and/or a fibreglass sheet (18) can also be included in the laminate structure of the floor plank. The floor plank (10) can conform to surface contours of a floor base. The bottom layer (18) of the floor plank, whether it is plastic sheet or foam, is conformable to surface irregularities of the floor base. A one piece releasable packaging sheet (128) can cover oppositely facing adhesive coated surfaces of the offset marginal portions (42,58).
