Karndean Designflooring now offers designs from its popular Van Gogh range in a rigid core format, in addition to the existing gluedown luxury vinyl format. This allows architects, designers and specifiers to choose the visual they prefer in the construction that best suits their project.

Van Gogh rigid core is a floating floor that clicks and locks into place without the use of adhesive. This format is the company’s quietest to walk on, ideal for upper levels in multi-story structures or environments that require enhanced acoustic qualities.

“By offering these 14 colors in both gluedown and rigid core, architects and designers can utilize either the designability of our gluedown planks or speed of installation and acoustic qualities of our rigid core,” said Larry Browder, Karndean’s chief sales and marketing officer. “In multi-story applications, including hotel and multifamily settings, you could take advantage of both formats in different areas of the space. Use multiple gluedown products and lay patterns to create pathways that facilitate visitor or resident flow on the ground level or in common areas, and rigid core in upper levels to ensure acoustics are maximized.”

Woods within the Van Gogh range were first introduced in 2001 and over the past 18 years have evolved to meet market tastes and trends while continuing to showcase enduring American style and performance. With its textured emboss and incredible replication of natural woods, Van Gogh continues to be a go-to range within the LVT sector. Popular favorites now available in rigid core include Reclaimed Maple, Aged Redwood, Country Oak and Vintage Pine.
