Explore the benefits of rigid core for your project

What is rigid core? 


Rigid core benefits from being easy to install over most existing hard floors, fitting over imperfect subfloors, and the pre-attached acoustic backing means there is no need for a separate underlay. With excellent acoustic properties, rigid core reduces noise transfer to rooms below making it ideal for hotels, offices and accommodation schemes like community living developments.


With these added benefits, alongside the intricate wood and stone designs and durability you would come to expect from any Designflooring floor, this fixing type is the perfect choice for a variety of installations.
