QUICKSTEP® LAMINATE FLOORS SUPERIOR TECHNOLOGY

DIRECT-PRESSURE LAMINATE

The direct-pressure laminate technology we pioneered is superior because our flooring is completely balanced. The weight and quality of materials and pressure of production is identical on both the top and bottom of the board - creating a perfectly stable product with no bowing or collapsing in the center. This collapsed effect is common with competitors' floors as their top layer is too heavy and the underlayer is not thick enough.

FOUR LAYERS

  1. Transparent, Wear-Resistant Overlay
    Resistant to stains, wear, impact, scratches, burns and household chemicals.


  2. Design Layer
    Innovations and investments in technology offer the ultimate in realistic designs and textures.


  3. Water Resistant HDF Core Board
    Offers more strength than a normal chipboard or MDF board.


  4. Balancing Layer
    Moisture-resistant underlayer guarantees a perfectly stable product with no bowing or collapsing in the center - a problem that's common with competitors' flooring.
