    IPC is an Infused Polymer Core, which is tough and silica free. This technology protects against the airborne crystalline silica that can negatively impact the health and wellbeing of our customers.

    EPC is an Engineered Plastic Core, which creates increased stability and is well suited to high-traffic areas of the home or office.

    MGO is a Reinforced Mineral Core made of Magnesium Oxide which is a strong yet highly lightweight material. This flooring is ideal for high-density areas as it is resistant to mould, mildew and harmful bacteria.

    This flooring is easy to clean with a broom, mop, or cloth, and is also very heat tolerant, making it a smart choice for Australian homes that need to react to seasonal temperature fluctuations.

    Hybrid flooring can be installed over sub-flooring

    Hybrid flooring is a floating floor that can be placed directly over a subfloor. This will save time and money without compromising performance. You'll need to ensure the subfloor is flat and smooth before installing. If your subfloor is suffering from some wear and tear, choose slightly thicker hybrid floorboards that will conceal any imperfections without visible dents or mounds.

    Installing hybrid flooring

    A hybrid floor is very easy to install which makes it a popular choice for DIY home builders. It uses a click and lock method that allows you to lay down hybrid planks without the need for any adhesives. Simply remove your old vinyl, carpet or other flooring and replace with brand new timber-look hybrid flooring. Simply slide the flooring planks together until they click. Tap gently with a rubber mallet if required to get them to fit and lock together securely.
