LooseLay

Our LooseLay range features K-Wave, a unique friction grip backing which helps hold the product in place using a combination of weight and friction, meaning no adhesive needed. LooseLay is perfect for both temporary and permanent use, so if you’re interested in changing the flooring frequently, need underfloor access or want to help reduce sound passing to rooms below, LooseLay could be the collection for you.

Rigid Core

Rigid Core is a click locking floating floor with a thick central core and is an ideal alternative to laminate and engineered hardwood. Our proprietary K-Core technology makes it perfect for installations where acoustics, uneven subfloors or preservation of existing hard floors need to be considered. Its 5G locking mechanism allows for quick installation and the pre-attached backing means no separate underlay is required.
