The Korlok Select and Korlok Reserve rigid core ranges by Karndean Designflooring, luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring, are among the first rigid core products to meet the standards of the new Assure Certified standard by the Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI) after participating in the pilot program.

Developed by the RFCI, Assure Certified products are tested and certified by SCS Global Services to ensure that rigid core products are manufactured to the highest standards and meet the requirements for indoor air quality, rigorous performance, and are free of heavy metals content and ortho-phthalates.

To become Assure Certified, manufacturers must have a quality control procedure to control material suppliers, product traceability, chain of custody, internal QC testing and segregation of non-conforming products/materials; and an on-site audit of the manufacturing facility is conducted and confirmed compliant with QC procedures, material inputs and scope of product intended for certification.
