If Unilin flooring is a name you’ve never heard of, there’s a good chance you’ll be familiar with one of its most prominent brands, especially if you’re a fan of cycling because the company is a co-sponsor of the 2018 UCI World Team Classification winner, Deceuninck-Quick-Step.
This year the team, which is known as the Wolfpack, has secured countless major victories with leader Julian Alaphilippe winning Milan-San Remo, Flèche Wallonne and Strade Bianche as well as setting the Tour de France alight; while Remco Evenepoel had a breakout year, taking the European time trial championship and grabbing his first Classics victory at Clásica San Sebastián. Philippe Gilbert won Paris-Roubaix and Elia Viviani was victorious in a number of one-day races as well as sprinting to the European road race crown.
But enough of cycling, it’s time to talk flooring. Unilin’s Quick-Step brand takes in laminate, vinyl and parquet engineered flooring.
Whether you like modern or traditional, Quick-Step laminate offers a wide choice of plank sizes, wood design, colour options and many beautiful textures and grooves. Each laminate floor has its own unique look and feel with carefully selected structure, treatment, finishing and bevel; all perfectly in line with the character of each floor design.
Smart innovations such as Scratch Guard and HydroSeal technology ensures that Quick-Step laminate floors offer excellent protection against scratches, stains and even surface moisture.
Quick-Step Livyn vinyl
Livyn is a collection of luxury vinyl floors combining the natural look and feel of wood or stone with all the practical benefits of vinyl tiles. Livyn is made up of five different layers, and this not only results in a waterproof floor with sound-reducing properties, but it also gives your feet a very warm and soft surface to walk on, yet still remains exceptionally thin; and it’s 100 per cent waterproof.
With an extra-matt finish and perfectly detailed design it’s able to simulate the appearance of wood, tiles, slate or stone.
Quick-Step parquet engineered
Parquet floors come in many shapes and colours, and Quick-Step has a multitude of wood types and beautiful surface effects, from brushed planks to saw cuts, on offer. These wood floors are made up of three layers of solid timber, covered with a protective finish; while a careful selection of raw materials and a tightly controlled manufacturing process guarantee optimum stability and durability.
Thanks to the Uniclic Multifit system you can lay your parquet hardwood floor in no time at all; there’s no need for any post-installation work, so you can start enjoying your brand new floor immediately. Once you’ve moved the furniture back in.
