What makes a quality laminate flooring product?

Traviata has been sourcing its laminate flooring products from Laminate Park GMBH in Heusweler, Germany, for the past three years. The company is proud to announce that it hasn’t had a single product claim in South Africa and it attributes this to the quality materials that it imports.

As with many things in the built environment, the old adage “you get what you pay for” rings true for laminate flooring as well. But what makes a quality laminate flooring product?

One of the things to look at is the density of the core board. Laminate Park is renowned for producing very high density core boards. Combined with moisture resistant additives and a silicone wax treatment on all edges, this leads to a durable and high performing product. It also has a “5G” Top Locking method for ease of installation and extra high strength joints.

Laminate Park also offers a lot of aesthetic flexibility thanks to the surface and edge treatment options. The variety of finishes, embossing, as well as options of choosing between square edges and V grooves, means that virtually any design preference can be met.

Laminate Park is a member of the European Producers of Laminate Flooring (EPLF), is PEFC certified in terms of sourcing timber raw materials from sustainable plantations and is approved in South Africa by SAWLFA, the South African Wood and Laminate Flooring Association.
