Our loose lay range, Karndean LooseLay, features our K-Wave friction grip backing which helps hold the product in place. It creates a strong bond to the subfloor using a combination of weight and friction. Perfect for temporary and permanent use, Karndean LooseLay is ideal if you are interested in changing out the flooring frequently or want to reduce sound passing to the room below. What’s more, it’s quick and easy to install.
