Benefits of Laminate Flooring
Greater Style and Choice
Laminate Flooring boasts the warmth, character and richness of traditional timber flooring. You can choose from 20 contemporary colours, grain patterns and finishes, including a classic V-groove look. Depending on your needs, you can also select from two different ranges - Laminate in 7mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, and Supergloss in 10mm. The 12mm option is thicker than most other laminate flooring products available in Australia. And has a pre-adhered sound suppressing underlay for minimal foot noise.
Formica Flooring is tougher than most solid timber floors. It's extremely resistant to wear, scratching, staining and cigarette burns. And is easy to clean and maintain. A micro fibre mop or Formica Flooring Zip Cleaner is all you need to remove stains, dust and mites. In the unlikely event that damage does occur, you can apply a matching ColorFill™ product to repair scratches or simply replace the flooring panel.
We believe in creating premium products that look good and last. That's why Formica Laminate Flooring is backed by a 7 year limited warranty for commercial use (8mm, 10mm and 12mm) and up to 20 years in residential environments. And Laminate Supergloss Flooring is backed by a commercial limited warranty of 5 years and a residential limited warranty of 30 years.
Impressively easy, you won't need messy glues or nails to install Laminate Flooring. It goes straight down in manageable sheets over most hard surfaces. And thanks to our proven Forma-Lock™ locking system, gives you one of the strongest joins of any laminate flooring system available globally.Once panels are joined they stay joined.
Importantly, you can walk on them immediately after installation. That means fit-out, stocking and trading can start the moment the floor is laid.
Better for you and the environment
Laminate Flooring is an environmentally preferable product, manufactured exclusively from timber that's been sourced from sustainably managed European plantations. A significant proportion of pre-consumer recycled fibre (60%) and reclaimed wood waste (30%) is used. The wood fibres are also bonded under high pressure and temperature using biologically degradable and low emission resins.
Laminate Flooring is chlorine and PVC free and it does not contain any wood preservatives or harmful solvents. For you, this means it has little impact on indoor air quality.
When building commercial spaces, Formica Laminate Flooring can contribute to Green Star credits for:

- IEQ-12: Formaldehyde Minimisation, and
- MAT-2: Flooring Materials.
