Australasia’s market leader in luxury vinyl flooring, Karndean Designflooring, is introducing its first floating floor collection, Korlok, with its highest performing acoustic qualities to date.

With 12 new authentic wood designs (1420mm x 225mm) inspired by Australian, European and North American woods, Korlok reduces noise transfer to rooms below to 19dB, without the need for separate underlay; ideal for an array of commercial environments including multi-level spaces such as offices, apartments and student accommodation.

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.

“Unlike other floating floor products and click laminate flooring, Korlok can be scored and snapped for ease of installation like our established Gluedown and LooseLay ranges,” explained Damien Boyer, head of commercial sales at Karndean Designflooring.

He said: “The familiar click-locking system and enhanced core technology means architects, interior designers and flooring contractors can achieve an authentic and luxurious floor in any space without the need for adhesive and with minimal subfloor preparation.

“It will be a real time-saver for specifiers working to challenging deadlines and commercial clients looking for less upheaval and disruption.”

“Importantly for our commercial customers, Korlok offers a new flooring solution for any type of subfloor with a wide array of premium wood designs to choose from.”

Quieter than traditional laminate, Korlok is waterproof, easy to clean and maintain, and compatible with underfloor heating. Available from February, Korlok offers a 15-year commercial warranty.
