Karndean flooring

WHAT IS KARNDEAN FLOORING:

Karndean is a vinyl flooring product made primarily from calcium carbonate (limestone), polyvinyl chloride and pigments. It is structured with five layers – two PVC backing layers, one high definition photographic layer, one clear PVC embossed wear layer and a top polyurethane (PU) protective coating.

WILL A KARNDEAN FLOOR BE SLIPPERY?

As with most smooth floor coverings, water and other liquids can make it slippery. Karndean floors are designed to be slip resistant, but it is always best to clean up any spillages straight away, and keep the floor dry.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EACH OF THE KARNDEAN RANGES?

Besides having different design inspirations, sizes and formats which make each range unique, each of the product ranges also have a different wear layer. The thicker the wear layer the more durable the floor, but also the more Karndean  product designers can do with the finish – adding unique embosses for more texture and bevelled edges.

WHAT ARE DESIGN STRIPS?

There are several main differences between Karndean strips:

Design strips are strips cut from another tile or wood plank. They come in 3mm, 5mm, 10mm, 30mm and 76mm. Added between tiles and wood planks, strips can give the impression of grouting for a natural effect, and a contemporary look and feel to your home.

WHAT ARE DECORATIVE, TRAMLINE AND KEYLINE BORDERS?

  • Decorative border – a patterned border designed to complement tile and wood plank floors. Karndean have selected an assortment of decorative border options to accompany all of our ranges
  • Tramline border – a simple and affordable way of creating decorative edging. They can be used in combination with feature strips, metallic strips and design strips for a range of effects
  • Keyline border – single strips that can be added to the edge of your floor. Keyline borders are available in 3mm, 5mm, 10mm, 30mm and 76mm and can be used with metallic and design strips
