For the past three years now Traviata Flooring has sourced its laminate flooring from Laminate Park GMBH in Heusweiler, Germany – without one single product claim in South Africa!!
There is definitely truth in the statement that “you get what you pay for” and nowhere is this truer than with regard to laminate flooring. So what is it that makes a quality laminate?
Perhaps the key element is the density of the core board. Laminate Park produces some of the highest density core board available today. Add to this moisture resistant additives and a silicone wax treatment on all edges and you have a floor that really performs.
From an aesthetic perspective, the surface and edge treatments offer a variety of options. The different surface finishes include “In Register” embossing and “Natural Timber”. Add to this the choice of square edge or V groove and you cater for almost every requirement.
On the practical side, the Laminate Park product utilises a “5G” Top Locking method for ease of installation and extra high strength joints.
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.
