Karndean Designflooring introduces its first rigid core collection


The UK’s market leader in luxury vinyl flooring, Karndean Designflooring, is introducing its first rigid core collection, Korlok, with its highest performing acoustic qualities to date.

With 12 new authentic wood designs (1420mm x 225mm) inspired by European and North American woods, Korlok can reduce noise transfer to rooms below up to 19dB, without the need for separate underlay. Korlok is ideal for an array of commercial environments, including multi-level spaces and accommodation areas in residential care homes.

“Flooring is a key element in care home design, and in the past care facilities have felt restricted in their choices, but there’s been a real trend lately amongst contractors, architects and designers to look to Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) because of its durability, ease of maintenance and endless design capabilities which allow flexibility to create individual spaces to suit the needs of users,” said Matthew Speck, Commercial Sales Director at Karndean Designflooring.

Korlok can be installed over most existing hard surface floors or uneven subfloors without the worry of exposing any imperfections underfoot, thanks to its innovative K-Core technology. It also features a superior 5G vertical click locking mechanism and pre-attached acoustic foam backing for quick and easy installation.

Quieter than traditional laminate, Korlok is waterproof, easy to clean and maintain, and compatible with underfloor heating.
