Karndean Designflooring Volcanic Black in a living room


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 is the latest click locking floating floor, which is an ideal alternative to laminate and engineered hardwood click floors as it offers the same benefits of realistic wood or stone look designs, but with the durability and waterproof qualities of luxury vinyl flooring.

Our wood and stone rigid core designs ‘click and lock’ into place without the use of adhesive, and if faster installation times are preferred, our K-Core® technology means it can be fitted over most existing subfloors, floorboards or ceramics in an instant. Its excellent acoustic benefits also makes it the format of choice to boost wellness and achieve a healthy home.

What designs are available?

Korlok features 16 beautifully authentic wood and stone designs that are inspired by European and North American woods and limestone. The collection includes our Danish inspired Baltic Mistral Oak, characterful Canadian Nude Oak and statement Volcanic Black, to name but a few. View the full range here.
