Welly Road Case Study

Karndean Designflooring

Located in Mount Barker South Australia, the Welly Road Early Learning Centre services young families and local communities with a welcoming and fully inclusive childcare and kindergarten facility.

In need of a refresh, the entire learning centre interior was refurbished, which included replacing the tired and outdated sheet vinyl flooring throughout the facility. When it came to choosing a suitable flooring solution the design team at G8 Childcare identified a number of requirements for their childcare centre and engaged Asset Flooring to provide flooring to meet these unique specifications.

Due to time and budget constraints, a quick and easy-to-install flooring solution was required. Korlok by Karndean Designflooring to the rescue!

Korlok was laid directly over the existing sheet vinyl, saving time and money on pulling up the existing floor covering.

Operating 12-hour days to service local families in Mount Barker, refurb shutdown and downtime was not the ideal option. Korlok’s rigid core made it suitable to be directly installed over the existing floor without having to shut the centre down. What’s more, it’s ability to ‘score and snap’ onsite also removed the need for messy offsite cutting and as such, was able to be installed whilst the centre was still fully operational. 

Korlok’s 100% PVC core makes it more durable than laminate flooring, which can tend to warp and bow when in contact with water and moisture.

As well as being hard-wearing, Korlok offers children a safe and comfortable space to play, and staff piece of mind with a hygienic and easy-to-clean surface. Staff, families and visitors to the centre are all thrilled with the end result.
