Domus launches PERGO engineered flooring collection
Pergo engineered wood, laminate and vinyl flooring is now available in the UK exclusively from Domus. All Pergo flooring materials combine exceptional design and long-lasting durability along with an easy click system method of installation. The brand was originally created in 1977 by a team of designers who were the first to conceive the idea to use laminate as a flooring material; with this began a global flooring revolution, which now includes engineered wood and vinyl.
Design is key; inspiration comes from the patterns, grains and knots of natural wood and colour, texture and light is key. Craftsmen create the vinyl and laminate flooring using a cutting-edge digital process that ensures the tiniest details such as timber knots or cracks in stone are recreated in the exact proportion to obtain a perfect balance.
Practicality and durability are essential to Pergo. All flooring is not only water resistant but stain and scratch resistant, which makes Pergo flooring as ideally suited for hotels and restaurants as it is to a city apartment or country home.
Pergo wood flooring is available in a variety of colours, gradings and formats, all designed to enhance any interior. From a pale, smooth ash to a dark, rustic oak, all Pergo wood exudes natural warmth and character. Pergo now offers planks up to 240cm long and 26cm wide – this length and width helps rooms to appear more spacious, offering a stylish, contemporary feel to interior spaces. Whether oiled or lacquered, all planks have a surface treatment that protects the wood whilst highlighting its natural appearance. With a new extra matt lacquer, Pergo wood can now offer the look of an oiled floor with the easy maintenance and protection of a lacquer. Planks are treated with seven layers of protective lacquer, resulting in the uniquely matt look of an oiled or even untreated wood floor.
With a robust and innovative construction, comprised of three layers of wood, Pergo planks are designed for maximum durability. The grain runs in different directions to reduce the natural swelling and shrinking caused by fluctuations in humidity and temperature.
Pergo wood utilises innovative and patented PerfectFoldTM 3.0 click-system technology for fast and simple installation; planks can be clicked together with no risk of damage and can be reinstalled easily if they need to be lifted up and put back down again.
For more than 40 years, Pergo has continued to introduce new features to its laminate products, most recently including deeper embossing and a matt finish to offer a more premium look. The true-to-nature wood-effect surface is produced by an innovative technique that creates deep grooves while the matt finish further enhances the wood-like texture.
The collection offers 80 decors and seven different surface textures to enhance the authentic look of wood and stone. Patterns running through the planks and slabs are varied and random to replicate the natural character of real wood and stone. There are four plank formats to choose from. ‘Endless’ planks and long planks provide clean visual lines, forming a continuous flow and a distinct contemporary look to any interior. The large slab format is the perfect choice for replicating the look of natural stone, creating continuous surfaces with minimal joint lines.
Pergo laminate offers three durability levels to choose from to fit the different needs and footfall levels of different interiors, whether residential or commercial. With a lifetime guarantee, the most durable is suitable for public areas where footfall is high. The patented TitanXTM surface protection offers multilayer technology that includes layers of aluminium oxide particles which provide superior resistance to wear, scratching and impact. With a water repellent coating and a strong and tight click joint that extends all the way to the bevels to create a full closed surface, Pergo laminate is fully water resistant. As with the wood, Pergo laminate utilises the innovative PerfectFoldTM 3.0 click-system technology for fast and simple installation.
Pergo vinyl offers 40 different wood and stone effect decor designs, including a new wide, long plank with an innovative, naturalistic embossed texture, varied patterns and true-to-life detail between individual planks and tiles. These details help to accentuate the natural look of the floor, offering the authentic appearance of natural stone and wood.
Pergo vinyl floors utilise a protective TitanVTM top layer which effectively seals the surface, making it easy to clean and offering advanced resistance against staining and scratches. They are full waterproof and can be used in areas which receive direct sunlight. Pergo’s vinyl surface is multi-layer with a dense core material which gives the floor a very high impact resistance and low residual indentation, continually protecting the floor from potential damage.
Unlike other vinyl floors, Pergo vinyl is designed with a PerfectFoldTM V click joint to offer fast and easy installation, helping the floors remain strong and stable. All decors and offered in two durability levels: optimum and premium. The former is suitable for both commercial and residential use while the latter for residential only.
