Quick-step, is a market leader in quality floating floor products. They were the first manufacturer to use a click-lock joint system (Uniclic) which revolutionised the market, today they remain at the forefront of flooring technology with numerous innovations. Quick-Step are just as obsessive over the visual design of their products with an enormous selection of stylish creations. Leading innovation in performance, convenience and aesthetics.
Laminate flooring is a modern, convenient and robust floating floor system that mimics the charm of nature with a realistic imitation timber décor.
• HyrdoSeal technology gives high resistance to moisture ingress
• Highly scratch resistant Melamine resin coating
• Coating impregnates a printed imitation timber décor and is realistically textured
• The most realistic laminate on the market, the coating and its texture follows the bevel fully over the edge of the board for superior durability and realism
• Core is strong, high quality HDF giving superior stability
• Click-lock joint system on all sides
• Most packs have a few ‘nested lengths’ which are shorter pieces designed to randomise the laying pattern
“Laminate floorboards are typically suitable for floating with underlay on a flat, dry, waterproofed and structural subfloor such as plywood, particleboard, existing timber floorboards or concrete slabs. They come pre-finished with a click-lock joint system and are designed to be DIY friendly for most normal dwellings.
Unlike most Laminate floorboards, Impressive Ultra is suitable for installation in wet areas under certain circumstances. The subfloor still needs to be flat (beware, many bathrooms and laundries will slope down to a drain). Any cut boards will need an additional HydroSeal coating applied to the cut surface on-site, the floor perimeter should also be sealed. Water should not be in contact with the floor for more than 4 days. If you are thinking about installing in a wet area, we STRONGLY suggest that you contact us and/or Quick-Step with questions.”
Laminates consist of a HDF core which is made from pulped wood. This makes HDF a truly renewable resource, a mature tree is harvested, a young tree grows in its place and a few decades later is ready for harvesting again. Material is sourced from plantations or regrowth forests and is often recovery from the timber industry, reclaiming material from an already ultra-sustainable industry. Forests are carefully, conservatively managed to ensure a responsible amount of wood is harvested. HDF uses a relatively small amount of energy during processing compared to other building materials like metals and concrete, the HDF itself is a carbon storer.
