Rigid Core

Rigid Core or hybrid is a click-locking floating floor with a thick central core and is an ideal alternative to laminate and engineered hardwood. Our proprietary K-Core technology makes it perfect for installations where acoustics, uneven subfloors, or preservation of existing hard floors need to be considered. It has a 2G™ or 5G® locking mechanism that allows for quick installation and the pre-attached backing means no separate underlay is required.
