Karndean Designflooring approved by Fortis

Karndean Designflooring is now an approved supplier to the merchant buying group, Fortis, in response to industry demand for its easy-fit product ranges.

It’s the first time the merchant trade and Fortis members will have access to stock Karndean’s LooseLay and Palio Clic ranges. Importantly, the collections offer the realistic designs and grain details customers have come to expect from the established Karndean Designflooring brand, but with easy, quick to install fitting formats.

“Since expanding our Karndean LooseLay collection, and bringing our Palio Clic to market this year, we’ve received a lot of interest from builders’ merchants looking to supply these products to the building trade,” commented Matthew Brown, National Trade Sales Manager at Karndean Designflooring.

He said: “As easy-fit products, both ranges fit the requirements of the building trade, who are looking for a quick-to-install flooring solution when finishing a new bathroom or kitchen.

“Being a Fortis supply partner, we are now able to fill a gap in the marketplace and meet the needs of the building industry.”

Andrew Waters, Category Director for joinery at Fortis, said: “We’re constantly looking to partner with established, national brands in order to offer our members access to the most innovative and market leading products.

“As the popularity for luxury vinyl flooring continues to grow, it’s never been a better time for our members to have access to Karndean Designflooring’s wood and stone effect designs.”

Both Palio Clic and Karndean LooseLay can be installed over most existing hard floors as long as they’re dry, smooth, sound and dust-free.

New for 2015, Palio Clic by Karndean introduces a sophisticated range of eight wood (1220 x 179mm) and four (600 x 307mm) stone effect designs. With a patented click-locking system, the collection can be fitted without the need for glue and extensive sub-floor preparation in any room of the home.

Available in large scale (1050 x 250mm) wood look planks and stone (610 x 500mm) look tiles, the complete Karndean LooseLay collection features 19 wood designs and eight stone tiles.

Karndean LooseLay’s unique friction grip backing and increased dimensional stability secures the floor firmly in place without the need for adhesives in many installations. It also features enhanced acoustic properties, reducing noise levels in rooms below — making it perfect for playrooms, bedrooms and loft conversions.
