Karndean Designflooring Volcanic Black in a restaurant


Our Korlok range features 1420mm x 225mm (56” x 9”) planks and 457mm x 600mm (18" x 24") tiles with K-Core technology, a 5G® locking mechanism and a specially formulated acoustic backing. Korlok can reduce noise transfer to rooms below by 21dB.

What is rigid core?

Rigid core benefits from being easy to install over most existing hard floors, fitting over imperfect subfloors, and the pre-attached acoustic backing means there is no need for a separate underlay. With excellent acoustic properties, Korlok reduces noise transfer to rooms below making it ideal for hotels, offices and accommodation schemes like community living developments.

With these added benefits, alongside the intricate wood and stone designs and durability you would come to expect from any Karndean floor, Korlok is the perfect choice for a variety of installations.

What designs are available?

Korlok features a wide range of authentic wood planks and stone tile designs that are inspired by European and North American woods as well as natural limestone. The collection allows you to mix wood and stone in dedicated areas for identifying walkways, wayfinding and zoning or creating rug effects. View the full range here.
