We've added eight new designs to our LooseLay Longboard collection

Posted on the 8/02/2019 by Karndean Designflooring

We're delighted to unveil eight new designs to our popular LooseLay Longboard collection which includes five Australian-inspired woods.

Boasting an in-built acoustic layer, Karndean LooseLay Longboard reduces noise transfer by 14dB; ideal for an array of multi-storey commercial environments including residential apartments, offices complexes, retail developments and education facilities.   

LooseLay’s innovative K-Wave friction backing, which can be installed over almost any subfloor, offers greater flexibility when specifying for commercial interiors that require fast project turnaround. It also features an R10 slip rating and Group T abrasion resistance that is safe and durable for high traffic areas.

“We’re delighted to introduce these new additions to the collection which features a mix of Australian and grey neutral woods - tones which we’ve seen growing demand for from commercial end-users and specifiers alike,” explained Damien Boyer, head of commercial sales at Karndean Designflooring.

He said: “Karndean LooseLay Longboard ticks all the boxes for project specification. It’s durable and safe for commercial environments, with GreenTag™ certification for environmental peace-of-mind.”

“What’s more, unlike traditional wood flooring, Karndean LooseLay Longboard can be quickly and easily installed on-site, minimising downtime and saving time and money for clients and installers alike.” 

Available in the popular 1500mm x 250mm format, the new Longboard colours bring the total LooseLay Longboard collection up to 20 stylish and beautiful designs, and features inspiration from Australian woods, European Oak and American Pine.

The expanded Longboard collection introduces two new Australian wood species; wormy chestnut and ironbark.  From the distinctive insect track marks of Australian Wormy Chestnut (LLP334), to the beautiful deep hues of Natural Ironbark (LLP327) and the warm, earthy tones of Honey Ironbark (LLP325), Ochre Ironback (LLP326) and Blended Ironbark (LLP328), these Australian woods bring a contemporary Australian charm to any commercial project. 

Harnessing the striking cross-saw markings of the original European oak boards, both Pure Fabric Oak (LLP329) and Shadow Fabric Oak (LLP331) showcase a layered ‘fabric’ texture with neutral undertones that make it ideal for both residential and commercial applications.

Rounding out the stunning new additions is Weathered American Pine (LLP335). Full of history, these reclaimed boards from a Pennsylvanian tobacco barn were discovered after some 100 years of use. Exuding character with its distinctive markings, Weathered American Pine is a truly striking design that can be used to enhance retail and hospitality interiors to name a few.

Quieter than traditional laminate and warmer underfoot than real wood, Karndean LooseLay Longboard is fully certified to GreenStar GreenTag™ - achieving LCARate Silver and GreenRate Level A certification.
