After introducing the Korlok Select interlocking rigid core range three years ago, Karndean Designflooring adds 17 new stones to the award-winning line, offering original Karndean visuals in a quicker and easier to install alternative to ceramic and porcelain tile.
Known for traveling the world in search of expressive and intriguing natural forms to inspire its designs, 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.
Attached InteGrout™ eliminates messy and time-consuming grouting process entirely
Color-coordinated and nonporous InteGrout™ is seamlessly attached to all visuals, except the two stenciled designs. By eliminating the messy grouting process altogether, Korlok Select stones with InteGrout™ can be installed and walked on in the same day and requires 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.
“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,” Karndean Designflooring director of marketing Jenne Ross said.
“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 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.
