We are excited to share that we now offer best-selling designs from the popular Van Gogh range in a rigid core format, in addition to the existing gluedown luxury vinyl format. This allows you to choose the colour that suits your style in either gluedown or rigid core, to suit your needs.
Van Gogh gluedown provides you with peace of mind that planks will be permanently adhered to the subfloor and allows you to personalize your floor by choosing the direction and pattern in which planks are laid. This format also allows for the addition of “design strips” to create an inlay border or shiplap effect.
Alternatively, Van Gogh rigid core is a floating floor that clicks and locks into place without the use of adhesive. This format is our quietest to walk on, ideal for upstairs rooms in the home where you wish to minimize noise transfer to rooms below.
“By offering these 10 colours in both gluedown and rigid core, you can first choose a colour that matches your space and then select the format that better suits your needs. You may even choose to use both formats throughout the home by enjoying the designability of our gluedown planks on the ground level and the acoustic properties of rigid core in upper levels,” Chief Sales & Marketing Officer Larry Browder said.
Woods within the pioneering Van Gogh range were first introduced in 2001 and over the past 18 years have evolved to meet market tastes and trends while continuing to showcase enduring North American style and performance. With its textured emboss and incredible replication of natural woods, Van Gogh continues to be a go-to range within the LVT sector. Popular favorites now available in rigid core include Reclaimed Maple, Aged Redwood, Country Oak and Vintage Pine.
Like all our rigid core products, Van Gogh rigid core planks feature the company’s proprietary, 100% waterproof K-Core technology for installation over most existing hard floors, without the worry of exposing subfloor imperfections. With this technology, install teams can turn jobs quickly without the use of adhesive and you will enjoy less upheaval in the home during installation. Van Gogh rigid core also features an acoustic foam backing that does not promote the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria. Unlike cork backings, this layer will not flake apart on the job site. These planks are secured in place with a patented and proven click-locking mechanism.
Both formats are finished with K-Guard+ surface protection, which uses polyurethane technology to provide a hygienic and durable surface that, unlike aluminum oxide coatings, will not turn white if scratched or leave stress marks when handled – perfect for busy households. Van Gogh planks are sized 48” x 7”, feature a 20 mil wear layer suitable for commercial applications, and are backed by a 15-year commercial warranty and lifetime residential warranty.
