Kastamonu updates its top-of-the-line laminate flooring seriesMedia
The leading manufacturer of the wood processing industry in Russia has updated the Floorplan laminate line. The changes affected the Blue and Black collections, which received a modified version of the Uniclic lock joint.
The Floorpan line includes nine collections of laminate from the 31st to the 33rd class of wear resistance with different technical parameters. One of the main advantages of this laminate is its unique Uniclic locking system, which allows quickly installing panels at an angle. This method does not require any additional set of tools, which significantly speeds up the laying of the flooring. Due to the Uniclic system, there are no cracks at the joints of floorboards.
The modified lock system has greater strength if compared to the previous version. Another unsurpassed advantage of Uniclic is secure reinstallation. Removing the flooring is as easy as installing it. The click connection system will not be damaged in this case. In addition to the modified lock, now laminate of the Floorpan Blue and Black collections will be produced with a floorboard width of 195 mm instead of 193 mm. Thus, most of the manufacturer’s decors will be brought to a single format.
“Product managers and other specialists of the company regularly work on improving Kastamonu products. Having moved to a new level of quality, we do not stop there, but strive to improve our achievements. This is one of the key goals of the company – to provide the consumer with a product of the highest quality,” said Ali Kılıç, CEO of Kastamonu Russia.
