PLATINIUM INNOVATION

Laminated panels are a popular type of flooring that has been with us for over 30 years. However, much has changed and the first panels are nothing like what we can find on the market today. SWISS KRONO, a leader in the wood-like materials industry, has been an active participant in their evolution. Below we present some examples of innovation in flooring:

‘Click’ joints – SWISS KRONO quickly implemented the patent belonging to Vaelinge for glueless joints making installation of floor panels simple and effective. The solutions have been modified over the years. The newest rapid-installation system is the EXPRESS CLICK SYSTEM, which provides a stronger installation than other solutions. Click joints are distinguished by their rapid and simple installation.

Resistance to abrasion – Corundum, a crystalline mineral sprayed in powder form on the surface of products, is used to strengthen the surface layer of SWISS KRONO panels. Our factory uses overlay technology to make an abrasion-resistant layer on panels, offered in classes AC3, AC4 and AC5. This allows us to provide a no-scratch warranty of up to 30 years in home use conditions.

Deep wood structurescontinual modernization of our production line equipment allows us to produce panels with a deep structure that provides a perfect imitation of wood grain. Our product offer contains both shiny and matt finishes, as well as brushed wood interpretations 

V-fuga – we know very well that v-fuga enriches the wood image, providing it with a touch of class. The use of four-sided v-fuga also increases the visual appeal of an installed floor. Paints used in painting this part of the product are entirely safe and hold all required certificates.

Synchronized structures – the next step in improving wood imitation was the purchase of special KT presses which allow for production of seep synchronized structures. A synchronized structure is a sort of “bas relief” perfectly matched to the wood image (e.g. a synchronized structure emphasizes the arrangement of tree rings).

3D synchronized structures – at SWISS KRONO, our highest value is the beauty of natural wood. Modern technology for producing metallic matrices to imprint structures facilitate the creation of a texture that not only provides the deep structure of brushed wood, but also highlights its depth through the use of shine, matte and half-matte in various fragments of a given panel. The innovative Stratochrome technology provides a 3D effect to laminated flooring.
