LAMINATES

Laminated floors are hygienic, versatile, durable and environmentally friendly. These characteristics make our range of laminate floors suitable for use in sustainable interior design and building practices. Choosing between laminates and LVTs often pose confusion as they are very similar in many ways. The table below show differences and similarities between laminated and LVTs.

Disclaimer: This matrix is merely a guideline of our products in general. Some of our carpets are less prone to staining due to their yarn component. Some laminates do have water resistant capabilities and a few of our LVT’s have insulation material on their backing to improve their noise factor. For these reasons we suggest you also consider the flooring guide icons and the maintenance guide for each product before making a final decision. Remember our trained sales professionals are available to assist you in making the right choice.

Get the look and feel of genuine hardwood surfaces with laminate floors. Easy to clean and maintain, these affordable, yet elegant laminated flooring solutions boast high moisture resistance, therefore allowing for installations in areas where conventional hardwood cannot be used.

With our wide range of patterns and textures from various top brands, we cater to your specific floor requirements. Enhance the overall aesthetic appearance of your home, office, retail store, restaurant or hotel with laminates that are affordable and exceptionally easy to install.

Everything from country and classic styles, to ultra-modern and bold designs is available in a wide range of colours to fit your particular interior colour scheme.

Ask our consultants to assist you in the selection of the appropriate grade flooring for the particular application area. Laminate consists of a decorative surface which is protected by a wear-resistant layer above it, and strengthened by a sturdy fibre backing.

Laminate flooring products can be manufactured to look like surfaces such as granite and wood, but at a much lower cost. Laminate floorcovering is usually more realistic than vinyl when it comes to replicating natural materials. Padding can be placed beneath laminate flooring for extra comfort.
