Karndean has announced the launch of Oak Premier to its premium Art Select collection. Combining both hand-crafted and hand-scraped techniques, this new technology creates realistic wood effect panels.
The appeal of natural wood flooring is particularly prevalent within the commercial sector at present and Oak Premier provides architects and designers with a highly attractive alternative to real timber, with the added benefit of swift installation times and ease of maintenance; two primary considerations for such projects.
Available in a stunning range of six colourways Dawn, Morning, Dusk, Sundown, Evening and Midnight and in authentic, larger sized 36 x 6 planks, there is sure to be an Oak Premier look to suit any project where a designer look is paramount.
Dawn Oak amber toned
Morning Oak blend of honey and gold textures
Dusk Oak hint of grey
Sundown Oak cinnamon hue
Evening Oak earthy feel
Midnight Oak rich, dark chocolate finish
Taking its cues from the art of hand carving, Karndean has emulated the same unique look and feel of real crafted wood with this exciting new launch, providing a character-full finish for the commercial market.
The ultimate wood effect vinyl flooring option, the hand scrapped surface, registered emboss and bevelled edges makes Oak Premier the most faithful replica available with none of the draw backs of natural materials.
As such, Oak Premier can boast being:
Individual, with design features available for added personalisation
Versatile in application
Quiet to walk on
BRE Green Guide to specification generic A/A+ rating
There is also the option of adding a keyline border for a simple yet effective way of adding interest or highlighting an accent shape to a room. The small strip can be installed between the outside edges of the planks for a quality finish, a technique that would cost far more and take far more time in natural materials.
Jacci Marcus, UK Marketing Director, comments: We are immensely proud to add the new Oak Premier to our prestigious Art Select Collection. The result of constant development and evolution of technology, technique and trials, we can confidently say that Oak Premier is the very best commercial design flooring available to specifiers and contractors today.
Full of style and highly versatility, these floors can take the stresses and strains of commercial use with a wear layer that carries a 15 year guarantee within high traffic areas, from bars and restaurants to hotels and even offices.
With a complete support package in place for architects and designers, we want to make sure that when you think of wood effect floors, you think of Oak Premier.
