We’re celebrating the understated colour tones found in natural limestone by introducing five new stone designs to our modern Korlok collection.
Designed to offer quicker installation times and enhanced acoustic benefits, it enables architects, interior designers and contractors to specify a wood and stone rigid core design in the same space when looking to achieve a seamless transition from one space to the next.
With an R10 slip resistance rating, durable 0.55mm wear layer and 6.5mm thickness, the 457,0mm x 600,0mm tiles are easier to maintain than natural stone and can be specified in large and open plan commercial projects.
Our new Korlok stone palette of five hues includes a range of silvery and warm mid-greys, muted and soft neutrals and honey-colours. From the striking charcoal-grey tones of Volcanic Black to the understated Frosted Stone with its beautiful chalky limestone effect, there’s a tone to match a wide range of design schemes.
The collection also features Urban Grey and Fossil Grey with its contrasting warm, mid-grey colourways, and Cotswold Stone reflecting the natural beauty of the golden-brown limestone found in the quintessential Cotswolds, England.
The designs are handcrafted to reflect the understated colour tones found in natural limestone and have been developed to include subtle veining, delicate mottling and a chalky appearance to create a realistic finish.
As it clicks and locks into place without the use of adhesive, Korlok features K-Core® technology meaning it can be fitted over most existing subfloors, floorboards or ceramics. With sound having a big impact on wellness and wellbeing in the workplace, K-Core® also provides excellent acoustic benefits by reducing sound transfer to rooms below by 21dB.
“This is the first time we have introduced stones to our Korlok collection, so it’s great news for specifiers looking for a tile option in a rigid core design,” commented Steve Curry, general manger of Designflooring.
He said: “Our new limestone inspired stones are perfect if you’re looking for an understated tone for a timeless or neutral backdrop. The colourways are so versatile they will work well in a range of sectors including offices, hospitality and retail.
“With its enhanced acoustic properties, Korlok is a popular collection in multi-storey, co-working and co-living communities. By adding stones, our wide palette enables specifiers to incorporate varied design features such as rug effects with contrasting limestone colourways.”
All Designflooring designs are extremely durable, waterproof and compatible with underfloor heating, as well as low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and phthalate free.
