NFT serves up a look at some trend-setting products in the laminate floor segment.

Stone Structure, in Granite and Slate designs, from the Alloc Commercial line

Alloc offers stone-look commercial laminate

Alloc’s recently introduced Alloc Commercial laminate flooring line is, as its name indicates, designed for commercial applications. The line features Alloc’s patented locking mechanism, which was developed to speed installation.

Fifteen designs are available, including the new Stone Structure series. Stone Structure incorporates a de-bossed grout line machined into the phenolic-treated Kraft papers for a realistic grout line appearance. Granite and slate designs are available with black grout lines. Travertine is available with brown grouts.

Alloc Commercial is backed by a 10-year warranty that covers joint integrity, stain and fade resistance, and wear-through. The product consists of a high-pressure laminate surface, an Aqua-resist HDF core, and HPL sound-abatement backing.

Wilsonart Commercial Flooring's Contact line

Wilsonart launches Contact commercial laminate flooring

Contact, Wilsonart Commercial Flooring’s newly unveiled premium commercial laminate line, features the company’s Tap-N-Lock glueless installation system. The value-priced collection is designed specifically to fit the needs of smaller commercial installations on a fixed technical-improvement budget.

Contact features 16 patterns, including 10 planks and 6 tiles. All patterns were designed for commercial environments. The flooring features two tongue-and-groove joints. The edges are treated with a hot wax-oil emulsion.

Contact commercial flooring features a high-performance commercial overlay, an acoustic-attenuation layer, Greycore inner core, and the LB2 bottom balancing layer.

Mohawk's Heritage laminate

Mohawk’s Heritage laminate features a pre-glued option

Mohawk’s Heritage laminate provides a 13-by-52-inch wide plank for a design-driven look. Heritage features the Mohawk DuraLoc Plus installation system, a horizontal locking configuration designed to virtually eliminate seams.

Planks are also treated inside the groove with an adhesive that is activated by moisture. Moisture on the tongue activates the glue in the groove. The floor can be installed with or without activating the glue feature, according to Mohawk.

Heritage also features WaterGuard 6, which is exclusive to Mohawk. This high-density fiberboard substrate is engineered to allow no more than 6 percent moisture absorption, the company says. Heritage is offered in 10 wood finishes.
