The look of hardwood flooring coupled with a tough finish – without the high cost. These are some of the many benefits of choosing laminate for your flooring needs.
When compared with other flooring surfaces the Airstep laminate ranges claim to feature a richness of look-alike designs that strikingly resemble hardwood flooring but at a more affordable price. The designs include the looks of popular oak species and also Australian species which were the design inspiration for their Eucalyptus Steps range.
The laminates are also durable and easier to maintain than many of the flooring materials they replicate. The highly durable wear layer, such as the AC4 Wear Layer used for our MetroFlor 5G range, offers superior resistance against daily wear, and scratches caused by pet’s claws.
Airstep laminate flooring ranges have also been designed with ease-of-installation in mind. They can be floated over a variety of subfloors, including concrete, and some can even be installed over floor heating systems, such as our TrendlineXL 5G range. The floors include the latest click-and-lock technology which makes installation easy.
To produce the most realistic looks, some of the ranges include a technique known as embossed in register (EIR). EIR uses an embossing tool to push the paper surface forward, producing a raised image that adds improved depth and texture to the laminate surface. Embossing can also be used to replicate distressing techniques such as a chalked, and naturally rustic look, which are commonly found in real woods and is demonstrated in their PERGO Natural Variation™ range.
Airstep laminate flooring warranties for residential use range from 20 – 25 years and commercial warranties are available upon request.
