Benefits of Rigid Core

What is rigid core?

Rigid core is a type of floating floor that clicks and locks into place (no adhesive necessary) and can be installed over most existing hard floors, facilitating quicker turnaround times and less downtime on-site.

An ideal alternative to laminate and engineered hardwood floors, rigid core offers the same realistic look, but with the durability and waterproof qualities of luxury vinyl.


What does Karndean Designflooring offer in rigid core?

We offer four industry-leading ranges of rigid core: Korlok Select, Korlok ReserveVan Gogh Rigid Core and Knight Tile Rigid Core.


What is in your rigid core?

Our rigid core products incorporate our 100% waterproof K-Core® technology, which allows for a floating installation over most existing hard surface floors and uneven subfloors.
