Sliding Laminate strips
From one of the creators of direct-pressure laminate (now the industry standard) and the patented Uniclic locking system (that revolutionized the industry) comes the QuickStep Linesse Collection featuring UniLink technology, the latest in flooring innovation.
Linesse is a perfect solution for homeowners who want the style and beauty of a narrow-strip hardwood floor combined with the performance and durability laminate delivers. Linesse from QuickStep offers textures and edging details that replicate the richness of real wood. The line features three individual strips on one plank.
Two of the strips slide, enabling the consumer to customize the stagger during installation for a more realistic appearance. This revolutionary technology makes it easy for your customers to create the look of an authentic narrow-strip hardwood floor—and it can be installed 30% faster than traditional strip hardwood flooring. Another unique feature of this new flooring collection from QuickStep is the softboard underlayment, which is attached to the one stationary strip.
Because the underlayment is pre-attached to the plank, you’ll save time during installation. The underlayment also helps create a more realistic solid hardwood sound—a key benefit homeowners will notice and prefer. Linesse is available only at specialty retail floor covering stores in an array of wood looks, including macadamia oak, harvest pecan oak, toasted almond oak, afzelia doussie bleached, natural varnished jatoba and dark varnished walnut.
Planks are 7⁄16-inch thick, which includes the attached underlayment. Each three-strip plank is 8 inches wide and 541⁄2 inches long. Like all floors from QuickStep, the Linesse Collection is engineered to resist wear, fading, staining and indentation, and can be installed in high-traffic areas. It’s also easy to maintain with no waxing, sanding, staining or sealing. And a damp mop effortlessly cleans up most messes.
In addition, unlike a solid hardwood floor, the Linesse Collection can be installed above or below grade. It carries a lifetime limited warranty.
