Karndean celebrates Korlok release at corporate headquarters

Home News Karndean celebrates Korlok release at corporate headquarters

Export, Pa.—Karndean Designflooring welcomed area architects, designers, retailers and homeowners to its U.S. corporate showroom and headquarters outside Pittsburgh to celebrate the new Korlok collection—an innovative plank featuring rigid core technology, comprised of 12 colors in a 56 x 9 format.

At the event guests received a passport and traversed on a tour of the facility, where they discovered the global inspiration story behind each Korlok design at themed stops along the way. Karndean Designflooring’s internal product designers drew inspiration from North American and European woods, including Texas Ash, Oak and Butternut. The event also included interactive product demonstrations and giveaways.

Korlok features several elements that help both the speed and ease of installation. Its layers of premium performance include: a pre-attached acoustic foam backing, eliminating the need for a separate underlayment and making Korlok Karndean’s quietest floor to walk on; a 5G locking mechanism that allows installers to quickly click and lock planks together; proprietary, waterproof K-Core technology, providing a rigid core that allows for installation over most existing hard floors, such as ceramic or hardwood; and K-Guard+ surface protection, which provides hygienic, durable surface protection. These elements keep subfloor preparation to a minimum and make installation adhesive-free.

“As interior designers, we constantly seek the most high-quality products to enhance our interior spaces,” said Nancy Spears of Savoy Interior Design. “Korlok is at the top of my list for looking, acting and performing like wood, but has qualities that go beyond hardwood like that it doesn’t promote microbial growth, has acoustical qualities to meet educational and business needs, and is a true floating floor that can go over uneven surfaces.”
