Introducing eight new stone visuals to our innovative and award-winning Karndean LooseLay range! Our latest original product designs replicate the in-demand looks of travertine, concrete and slate in a 20mil loose lay LVT format. This non-interlocking floating floor is notable for multi-directional visuals, speedy install time, acoustic properties (ΔIIC 16dB), individually replaceable tiles and seamless transition to commercial carpet tile.
“Following the success of concrete visuals in our gluedown luxury vinyl, we were inspired to offer additional visuals in our loose lay range and developed clean, neutral designs from travertine, honed slate and concrete that can be interpreted as stained concrete,” director of marketing Jenne Ross said. “In addition to overcoming the installation and maintenance obstacles of natural concrete, these new looks complement what we’re seeing in commercial carpet tile.”
Natural travertine is a type of limestone that develops when water from geysers or mineral springs bring deposits of dissolved materials to the stone’s surface, forming deep pits and troughs in the process. The Karndean LooseLay travertine design shows this natural tumbled patterning in three hues: Tino, Capri and Vulcano.
The subtle veining within the Karndean LooseLay concrete design creates tonal shifts that add movement and depth, as seen in Seattle and Vermont.
Available in three light, clean colorways, the honed slate design features subtle detailing that could also be interpreted as a stained concrete - Dakota, Maine and Ontario.
We first introduced our innovative K-Wave® friction grip backing in 2011, earning a Best of NeoCon Innovation Award, and it was most recently recognized with a 2019 Vision Award from FacilitiesNet.com. The K-Wave® backing combined with the weight of the planks, holds the product in place without the use of full-spread adhesive in many applications.*
Ideal for overnight retrofits and projects with tight turnaround times, Karndean LooseLay 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, as well as temporary and planned removal spaces.
*Full spread of adhesive is suggested in high traffic areas.
