After introducing the Korlok Select interlocking rigid core range three years ago, Karndean Designflooring adds 17 new stones to the award-winning line, offering visuals developed by, and unique to, Karndean in a quicker and easier-to-install alternative to porcelain tile.
Known for traveling the world in search of expressive and intriguing natural forms to inspire its designs, the Korlok Select stones are inspired by antique French cotta, Calacatta marble, slate, limestone and include Moorish stenciled tiles. The Calacatta marble visuals are available in two sizes: 18- by 24-inch tiles and a 6- by 24-inch herringbone format, allowing designers to scale the visual to the size of a space.
Color-coordinated InteGrout is seamlessly attached to all visuals, except the two stenciled designs. InteGrout eliminates the grouting process entirely, contributing to 50 percent upfront cost savings when compared with porcelain tile. Unlike typical textured grout, smooth and nonporous Karndean InteGrout will not harbor dirt and bacteria, will not crack with seasonal temperature fluctuations and can be maintained with a pH neutral cleaner.
Korlok Select stones are equipped with a 5G fold-down locking mechanism, whose performance is guaranteed by the HoldFast 15-Year Commercial Warranty, along with waterproof K-Core technology that allows for fast installation over most existing hard floors. A pre-attached, closed-cell acoustic foam backing reduces noise transfer to the level below by 22dB and does not pool water or encourage mold, mildew or bacterial growth. Like all Karndean floors, Korlok Select is finished with K-Guard+ surface protection to provide a hygienic, durable and easy-to-clean finish.
