Peace of Mind with Safe Materials

 

Tested and Trusted Materials

 

Phthalate Free 
The key raw material in polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is salt, and PVC is the second most widely used polymer in building and construction and the same trusted material used in vital medical equipment, including heart and lung bypass tubing. 
  • Karndean floors are free from BPA, phthalates and formaldehyde.
  • Our products are neither carcinogenic nor do they contain raw materials which are reprotoxic or endocrine disrupting; and therefore, do not require warning labels in the United States (Prop 65).

 

Improved Indoor Air Quality

 

Floorscore icon 
We spend 90% of our day inside on average, making it important to have good air quality. Independent testing proves our products and adhesives are very low emitting in terms of volatile organic compounds. 
 

Spend More Time Living, Less Time Cleaning

 

Keep Moisture, Mold and Bacteria at Bay

 

Waterproof icon 
Waterproof and nonporous Karndean planks and tiles do not promote bacterial growth. Unsealed grout between ceramic and porcelain tiles absorbs moisture, creating a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. 

 

Breathe Comfortably with Reduced Allergen Impact

 

Hygienic icon
Comfortably go about day-to-day life because Karndean products do not harbor dirt, dust or bacteria. 
  • Hardwood floors can trap dirt between planks, which may trigger an allergic reaction.
  • Carpet made from naturally hypoallergenic materials can still trap dust and other allergens.

 

Ditch the Harsh Cleaning Chemicals

 

Low Maintenance icon
A regular sweep and mop with Karndean Clean or other pH neutral, fragrance free cleaner approved for use with vinyl floors is all you need to clean & disinfect your Karndean floor and keep it looking its best.
