We've expanded our innovative and award-winning LooseLay Longboard range to include six new products! Featuring 59" planks, this non-interlocking floating range is notable for its multi-directional planks, speedy install time, acoustic properties (ΔIIC 16dB), individually replaceable planks and seamless transition to commercial carpet tile.
As with all our product ranges, the new designs within this range are unique to Karndean Designflooring and are developed from the delicate variation of European Oak and the rustic beauty of American Pine.
Influenced by weathering applications in textile design, the new fabric oak design explores the effect of weathering beyond what happens when wood is exposed to the elements – a softer and more worn approach. Cross-sawn patterns skip through the boards, creating a layered effect, as though fabric has been worn directly onto the plank.
Along with our Fabric Oaks, one additional design was also developed from European Oak, a wood known for its subtlety and soft features. Like the Danish “hygge” style, the color and delicate grain within Vanilla Oak denotes a quality of coziness, evoking feelings of contentment and well-being.
The American Pine design was developed from barn boards from Pennsylvania’s Allegheny Mountain region. These barns were used for drying tobacco in the late 1800s and early 1900s, inspiring the coloring and aged character of the design. Uneven wear in the original varnish highlights the character and grain of the boards.
We first introduced our innovative K-Wave friction grip backing in 2011, earning the Karndean LooseLay range a Best of NeoCon Innovation Award, and was most recently recognized with a Good Design® Award. This backing, combined with the weight of the planks, holds the product in place without the use of full-spread adhesive in most applications.
Ideal for overnight retrofits and projects with tight turnaround times, Karndean LooseLay products can be laid over most existing hard floors with minimal preparation, as well as over subfloors with an RH of up to 95%. As our most ergonomic flooring product, LooseLay is constructed to perform in a variety of environments, including hotels, retail environments and hospitals; in addition to temporary and planned removal spaces. At 4.5mm thick, this product allows for a seamless transition to carpet tile.
