Concrete-look floors have soared in popularity but consider an alternative that is soft underfoot and quieter in public spaces for a more comfortable interior space.
The Crete range offers a large 600 x 600 x 8mm tile that embraces the aesthetic of concrete without the hard, noisy result of concrete or ceramics.
An ideal alternative, Crete features ISOCORE, an innovative highly engineered closed-cell foamed PVC core that delivers rigidity and strength which is lightweight and easy to handle and install. ISOCORE is also 100% waterproof, so entirely suitable for large public areas such as offices, restaurants, retail or educational facilities.
An overlay of microscopic ceramic beads combined with UltraFresh antimicrobial treatment provides superior wear resistance and controls the growth of unwanted microbes and odours. Healthcare or aged care facilities and schools will welcome the durable nature of Crete and ease of cleaning and maintenance.
Crete can be installed four corner, point-to-point providing genuine tile installation or offset in a brick pattern. The Droplock 400 system is revolutionary in that it is a vertical locking system the can be laid floating or with adhesives.
The tiles also incorporate an acoustic underlay saving costly manual labour during installation and sound absorption ratings suitable for multi-floor apartment buildings and other busy public spaces. Relax with improved in-room and transfer acoustics.
Installation time is also reduced with minimal subfloor preparation required. Crete tiles can be laid over existing tiles or vinyl, for a quick easy refurbishment or hide minor subfloor imperfections in new builds.
The clean, contemporary concrete tile look is also attractive without grout lines. Large, expansive spaces of up to 90m² can be laid without transition joins.
As with all luxury manmade products, the neutral concrete palette has evolved to create a diverse range of six tiles with depth of colour and character which is visually appealing for both commercial and residential applications.
Woodland Lifestyle also offers the Droplock 400 system flooring in a timber herringbone plank format. Combined, the design possibilities of borders and planks is endless.
