What is rigid core?

Rigid core is the format of choice for superior acoustics and challenging deadlines.

With the ability to install over imperfect subfloors and its 5G and 2G locking mechanism, it has been proven to be 30 percent quicker to install than other flooring types, thus reducing business downtime significantly.

As well as the intricate wood and stone designs and durability you would come to expect from any Karndean floor, rigid core is the perfect choice for a variety of installations.
