Long considered the “gold standard” in luxury vinyl plank (LVT) flooring in the UK and the US, Karndean Designflooring is now an emerging brand here in the Caribbean. Over the past 40 years, the company has built a great reputation for making realistic luxury vinyl flooring products. Karndean is not a “mass market” budget manufacturer, but for consumers who are looking for a very high-quality design, a variety of styles, and durability, choose Karndean with their impressive selection of colors, textures and looks. Karndean offers 8 different product ranges and more than 200 individual product choices, all inspired from different natural materials from around the world.
Unlike the natural materials they replicate, Karndean’s LVT products don’t crack or split, they are quieter and softer underfoot and they are low maintenance, easier and quicker to install. Karndean’s luxury vinyl tiles are extremely durable whether exposed each day to lively children and pets, or walked on daily by thousands of customers. Designed to last for many years, each floor carries a lifetime residential warranty.
Karndeans LVT glue-down formats involve the use of an adhesive to adhere the flooring plank securely to its base. The installer simply spreads the adhesive along the sub-floor using a trowel or a roll and this in turn holds the vinyl flooring securely in place.
Karndeans Looselay, like its name suggests doesn’t require much adhesive, instead it uses a fricton grip system to hold the planks to the subfloor. It is considered the most versatile and easy to install of all the LVT options and is great for rooms where you want to reduce noise levels without using an underlay.
With Karndeans Korlok (click locking mechanism), floor installation has never been easier. The boards are locked on the long side with a traditional angling method allowing a vertical snap reassuring your floor is securily locked in place. Korlok can be laid over most hard floors without the need for adhesives.
