We now have six new products available in our innovative and award-winning LooseLay Longboard range! Featuring 59” planks, this non-interlocking floating range allows you to incorporate various patterns into your floor, helps reduce noise transfer to rooms below and is quickly and easily installed so there is less mess and upheaval to your home.
Like all our products, these new designs are originally created by our product team - 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.
Perfect for temporary and permanent use, our Karndean LooseLay products are ideal if you are interested in changing your floor frequently or reducing noise transfer to rooms below. They can be laid over most existing hard floors with minimal preparation, as well as over subfloors with an RH of up to 95%.
We first introduced our innovative K-Wave friction grip backing in 2011 with the Karndean LooseLay range. This backing, combined with the weight of the planks, holds the product in place without the use of full-spread adhesive in most applications. The LooseLay Longboard range was most recently recognized with a Good Design® Award in 2017.
