Commercial Flooring Properties

Flooring Properties summary

High Quality Products

We make sure that our products are manufactured to the highest standards. They are manufactured to ISO9001, the international standard for quality. We also insist that our commercial flooring products are covered by the ISO14001 environmental certification.

Pride in how our products look

We take great pride in how our products look. Making sure that they are as close to the natural material they are replicating. We use a number of manufacturing techniques to do this which include:
  • Embossing
  • Bevelling
  • High quality print
  • Random cutting
All this means that we are able to produce a range of commercial flooring products of the highest aesthetic quality. Our Art Select range is the pinnacle of this, resulting in our most realistic and beautiful products. 

Durable and Easy to Maintain

Our products are very durable. For commercial flooring installations the guarantee ranges from 10 to 20 years. This means that you can be confident that the products you specify and install will look great for the duration of their life.

Not only this but keeping the floor clean and making sure it is maintained is very straight-forward. For most commercial use the daily use of our Routine Cleaner, or a suitable pH neutral cleaner will keep the floor in excellent condition. For areas which take more of a punishment, including bars and night clubs, the use of our Basic Stripper is recommended. 

Every so often the floor may need to be re-sealed. Unlike timber floors which would need sanding, or sealing natural stone which takes hours to dry, Karndean Designflooring is simple. Clean the floor using Basic Stripper then once dry mop over Refresh Hard Sealer.

Either hand mops or mechanical cleaning apparatus can be used. 


Installation should always be done by an experience and professional flooring contractor. Installation is swifter than many other natural materials. It is also more versatile. Due to the fact that the thickness of the products are very similar, between 2 and 3mm, mixing wood and stone is easy. In refurbishment work you can also benefit from not having to complete extensive remedial work on door frames and MEP equipment.

We offer two training courses at our head office in Evesham. If you have never fitted Karndean Designflooring before you can enrol on our basic course, or alternatively if you are have  few years experience but want to increase your expertise we run an advanced course.
