Export, Pa.—Karndean Designflooring has added 17 new stone looks to the award-winning Korlok Select line. All but two stenciled designs include color-coordinated and nonporous InteGrout, offering original Karndean visuals in a quicker and easier to install alternative to ceramic and porcelain tile, the company said.

“With hygienic and easy-to-clean products top of mind for consumers in today’s climate, the ability to easily clean a grouted tile floor has tremendous appeal,” said Jenne Ross, director of marketing. “This benefit, combined with the product’s 5G fold-down locking mechanism, minimal subfloor preparation and acoustic qualities make Korlok Select with InteGrout an ideal alternative for the consumer that loves the look of ceramic or porcelain, but needs a floating option to fit their busy lifestyle.”

Korlok Select stones with InteGrout can be installed and walked on in the same day and require less tools, time and labor than ceramic and porcelain. At just 1/3 of the weight of the average porcelain tile of the same size, Korlok Select can be easily transported and installed in any level of the home. Unlike products with painted bevels and typical textured grout, smooth InteGrout is stain-resistant, does not harbor dirt or bacteria and easily wipes clean.

The Korlok Select stones are inspired by antique French cotta, Calacatta marble, slate, limestone and include Moorish stenciled tiles. The Calacatta marble visuals are available in two sizes: 18 x 24 tiles and a 6 x 24 herringbone format, allowing for added design flexibility.

Korlok Select stones are equipped with a 5G fold-down locking mechanism, whose performance is guaranteed by the HoldFast Lifetime Residential Warranty, along with waterproof K-Core technology that allows for fast installation over most existing hard floors.

A pre-attached, closed-cell acoustic foam backing reduces noise transfer to the level below by 22dB and does not pool water or encourage mold, mildew or bacterial growth. Like all Karndean floors, Korlok Select is finished with K-Guard+ surface protection to provide a hygienic, durable and easy to clean finish.
