Staticworx vs. Armstrong™: A Simple Scorecard
While Armstrong has invested a great deal to brand its vinyl tile, Staticworx doesn't have the advanatage of a big advertising budget. What we do have is a product that independent testing has determined to be the best static flooring solution on the market.
