Van Dyck launches 3 new laminate collections in SA that is set to floor the industry.

Van Dyck has recently launched three Pergo laminate collections; namely Domestic Elegance; Living Expression Long Plank; and Living Expression AquaSafe. These laminate collections are available in different plank formats so that customers can chose between either long planks, modern planks or classic planks.

The different formats allow you to transform the feeling of an entire room – making it wider, narrower, longer, darker or lighter – the options are endless. All these products also have bevelled edges to give an elegant and stylish finish to the floor.

According to Van Dyck, Pergo’s laminate floors still remain the main market leader today thanks to constant research and development that ensures that their laminates remain innovative and are more beautiful and durable than other laminate flooring imitators.

These high-quality laminate floors feature a high-resolution photo and a variety of realistic surface textures to closely imitate real wood, stone or ceramic, creating fantastic results that feature depth and colour. The Pergo premium printing process creates rich colours that don’t fade, thereby ensuring a beautiful floor style for several years. They are also subject to rigorous tests that are designed to ensure that all products abide by the highest standards and do not harm indoor air quality.

Pergo Domestic Elegance is a 190 x 1 200mm laminate plank collection designed for quick and easy installations and it is the first Pergo range to be properly stocked by Van Dyck in South Africa. Inspired by the natural feel of wood, slate and rough concrete, these laminates are available in five contemporary colours ranging from very light naturals and contemporary grey to the more traditional darker wood colours. They are highly recommended for light commercial and heavy residential applications and add a special personality to any floor.

In turn, the Pergo Living Expression Long Plank collection is available in 205 x 2050mm size and 9.5mm thickness. These planks are ideal for light commercial/heavy residential applications. This collection of Long Planks include designs that will give any room clean visual lines, added space, and a distinct contemporary look. The grandeur of the format magnifies the beauty of nature and allows it to stretch all the way into a home. The goal of this collection is to create the illusion of a never-ending plank. All decors match perfectly at the end of each plank, forming a continuous design flow that stretches from one wall to the other.

In the words of Van Dyck, the new Pergo Living Expression AquaSafe collection is nothing short of a revolution. It is not only designed to look great, but when it comes to performance, it excels when compared to other ranges. The new AquaSafe technology ensures the floors are water-resistant, making them ideal for kitchens, bathrooms and other wet areas, and by doing so it can compete head-on with LVT’s. The authentic, true-to-nature surface is made possible by a technique that can reproduce deep grooves of wood to perfection. This unique surface texture with deeper structure provides a unique, natural feel.

The authentic designs are also available in a new matt surface and include patterns that go all the way into the bevels. In addition, a water repellent coating on the plank edges ensures that water cannot penetrate the floor. Furthermore, these laminates are hygienic. Dirt – just like water – simply stays on the surface and can be wiped away easily.

Both Living Expression collections feature Pergo’s genuine wood texture, a lightly polished structure that follows the wood grain in every detail, complemented by a silk matt finish. In addition, the quality level of these laminates is suitable for all-round domestic use.

Additional Benefits of Using Pergo Laminate
•    Installing Pergo laminates is now faster and easier. Pergo Domestic Elegance, Living Expression Long Plank and AquaSafe laminate floors at all quality levels, comes with the innovative PerfectFold 3.0 click system offering three different installation methods. The planks are just clicked together using the tried and tested method. The PerfectFold 3.0 system makes it easy to lift them up and replace them when necessary.

•    Pergo Domestic Elegance, Living Expression Long Plank and AquaSafe laminate collections feature different surface textures that each serve to enhance the authentic impression of the laminate floor; from the well-worn vintage look to the natural feeling of wood grains. To allow a finer tuning of the interior design, these surface structures are also available in different levels of gloss.  

•    Extreme durability is another reason why Pergo laminates are guaranteed against wear, stains and fading caused by sunlight for up to 25 years.

•    Thanks to the patented TitanX surface protection, a Pergo laminate floor will keep its elegant finish year in and year out. TitanX is a multilayer technology that includes protective layers of aluminium oxide particles, which provides superior resistance to wear and scratching. Combining these special impact layers with a high quality core material, TitanX, results in a very high resistance to dropped objects and high heels.
