Apart from aesthetics, Korlok score high on several other features.

The Karndean Korlok range is a collection of rigid core floors, which means these can be installed on most pre-existing floors. The floors are just perfect when you want a quick makeover to hide imperfections in your existing floor.

Installing the floor is super quick and easy with the unique 5G vertical click-lock mechanism. The planks can just be locked together without the need for messy glue or complicated instruments.

The 6.5mm thick planks feature high quality pre-attached foam underneath that acts as an excellent sound barrier. The foam layer also acts like a cushion, making the floors extremely comfortable underfoot. This also means that you do not need to install underlay with these vinyl floor tiles.

The 0.5mm thick surface layer is fortified with polyurethane (PU) coating that makes these luxurious floors resistant to scratch, stains, abrasions and other wear and tear. In fact, the floors are just perfect for families with kids and pets.

The PU coating further protects these floors from moisture and damp. You can safely install these charming floors in your bathrooms, kitchens and other areas where spillage is a regular occurrence.

They are extremely eco-friendly too. They are free from phthalate and keep your interiors healthy and hygienic.

Maintaining the tiles is very easy too. The surface coating protects it from dust, damp, mould and rot. Regular vacuuming and occasional mopping will keep your floors in top condition.
