FloorworX & Quick-Step – An Epic Team

A true leader in design, innovation and quality, Quick-Step is a quality flooring brand produced by UNILIN. Ongoing research and development and a strong focus on quality have made Quick-Step one of the top players in the flooring industry. The brand has evolved from an affordable alternative to wood to defining a category in its own right, offering a wide variety of designer floors that are quick and easy to install and maintain, no matter the application. Today, Quick-Step is a global wood, laminate and luxury vinyl flooring brand active in over 100 countries.

Quick-Step and FloorworX teamed up for the ABSA Cape Epic 2018, joining forces as the official co-sponsors of Team Quick-Step FloorworX. “It’s unbelievably exciting to be rolling down the Cape Epic start ramp as Team Quick-Step FloorworX on the 18th March! We look forward to racing our hearts out for our Sponsors & CJ Racing’s foundation.” – Quick-Step FloorworX Team Riders: Cobus Snyman & James Ross-Marsh.

FloorworX and Quick-Step enjoys a long-standing relationship in quality wood & laminate flooring, which they are now “taking to the road” in South Africa. 2018 will mark Quick-Step’s 20th consecutive year in pro cycling. This makes the global hardwood, laminate and luxury vinyl flooring brand a steady partner in an ever-changing World Tour peloton. The love affair between Quick-Step and cycling started in 1999, when the flooring division of the UNILIN group began its co-sponsorship of the Mapei-Quick-Step Cycling Team. In 2002, team manager Patrick Lefevere and Frans De Cock, former CEO of UNILIN, joined forces to make Quick-Step title sponsor of the Quick-Step-Davitamon team. “We quickly found common ground”, Frans De Cock says. “Cycling is all about performance, which is exactly what our floors have to offer. Our brand is firmly rooted in Belgium, so the global cycling scene – which has an average interest rate of 30% in many countries – was an excellent way to raise international awareness.” More than just a fling, Quick-Step continued to reaffirm its trust in the team, yielding various names, including Quick-Step-Innergetic, Omega Pharma-Quick-Step, Etixx-Quick-Step, and most recently Quick-Step Floors.

Quick-Step luxury vinyl floors aren’t just a pleasure to walk on; they’re also a delight for the eyes. That’s because Quick-Step designers keep their finger on the pulse of the latest trends in architecture, fashion and interior design to craft timeless classics. And thanks to cutting-edge production technologies, the vinyl floors present an unprecedented level of realism. Natural wood or stone? There is a luxury vinyl design for every interior.

Quick-Step’s vinyl flooring designers draw inspiration from various sources: from ground-breaking architecture and the latest trends in interior design and fashion, to popular blogs, hip cities, and emerging artists. This allows them to spot new trends before they become established, and tell the difference between hype and timelessness. The result? Quick-Step luxury vinyl floors are the trendsetters of today and the timeless classics of tomorrow.

Every day, the designers work closely to create unique floors, with new and exciting combinations of textures and materials, colours and designs. No detail goes unnoticed throughout the process: from structure and size to colour, balance and bevel.

Quick-Step luxury vinyl flooring comes in a varied palette of colours and designs, each with a unique and authentic appearance: from real-life details to stunning structures and fascinating colour variations. The high-grade printing technique used for the Quick-Step luxury vinyl design layer gives your floor its unique and authentic appearance. And with a range of perfectly matching accessories, you can give your floor a natural look like no other.

Livyn luxury vinyl flooring consists of five different layers. This not only results in a waterproof floor with sound-reducing properties, it also gives your feet a very warm and soft surface to walk on. Still, vinyl floors remain exceptionally thin: perfect for renovations.

1. A high-performance top layer: this protective layer with Scratch and Stain Guard technology protects your floors from dirt, stains and scratches, and makes them easy to clean and maintain. The extra matt gloss finish guarantees a natural look.

2. A fine-printed vinyl decor layer: the high-grade printing technique used for this layer gives your vinyl floor its unique and authentic appearance.

3. A strong impact-resistant vinyl core: this waterproof and sound-reducing vinyl core provides comfort and durability.

4. An extra stabilising layer: this layer contains super dense glass fibres to give the vinyl floor additional dimensional stability.

5. A highly efficient impact-resistant vinyl backing: this moisture-resistant layer guarantees a perfectly balanced floor board which prevents cupping or warping.
