Rigid core flooring technology meets design flexibility with Korlok Select

Posted on the 6/05/2019 by Karndean Designflooring

Following the immense success of our premier click-locking rigid core range Korlok Select, we have expanded the range to include new visuals and an innovative new 24” x 6” herringbone plank.

Known for the development of original product designs, we created the new Korlok Select visuals from rare and treasured American and European woods, allowing the beauty of these woods to live on in luxury vinyl. These unique designs, combined with industry-leading rigid core technology, make Korlok Select the perfect choice for projects that need completing quickly.

Hawaiian Koa

Kilauea Koa RKP8124

A species of acacia, and in the same family as walnut, Hawaiian koa is a protected wood and can no longer be harvested. Too costly and scarce for flooring, Karndean Hawaiian koa is produced in its natural coloring and two unique colors to suit today’s interior trends.

American Barnwood

Silver Barnwood RKP8208, SM-RKP8208

Salvaged in the northeast, the American barnwood design was developed from barn siding that had been naturally eroded by the elements to produce splintered boards with deep grooves. Natural finishing oils brought to life the boards that had faded over time, while lively color and character shifts promote the wood’s extreme variation of features.

The three American barnwoods are available in both a full-size 56” x 9” plank (shown above, left) and a new 24” x 6” herringbone format (shown above, right), an innovative design advancement within the rigid core category. With these two sizes, end users can have color continuity from room to room with different lay patterns in each space.

English Oak

Oyster Oak RKP8202

The English oaks were sourced from a British woodland within South Oxfordshire, home to Oxford University. Expressive shadow-sawn markings within the planks were inspired by the weathered stonework seen in the town. Tonal color variation creates a blended effect, while gray and beige matte oils produce light contemporary colors.

Brushed Oak

Ivory Brushed Oak RKP8217

Reflecting the clean lines and simplicity of Scandinavian style, this design features minimal tonal variation. The source boards were wire-brushed to heighten the unique and interesting grain pattern, which is a combination of flowery and straight grain. The texture created by this process inspired a new and original registered emboss that beautifully aligns with the grain detail.

Baltic Oak

Baltic Washed Oak RKP8101

Drawing inspiration from the Baltic region of Europe, this design was achieved by mixing wood grades, from ultra-prime to mature grade, a process not available in hardwood. Colored oils were then applied to create a washed effect.

European Oak

Barley Oak RKP8206

Retaining the much-loved characteristics of natural, prime grade European oak, light detailing within the tight grain is reflective of the machine brushing and rapid dehydration that occurs within the sawn boards.
