Fortem Grand Suite Paleoak
6.5 mm Waterproof Composite Floor
The Fortem Grand Suite Paleoak is a stunning 6.5 mm thick and large-format Engineered Waterproof Floor. Because these floors are 100% waterproof, they won’t swell, peel or buckle. They can be installed on wet areas like bathrooms. They can also be used where water may present a problem in case of a leak, like the kitchen or the laundry room. Because these floors do not expand or contract like laminates, there’s no need for transition moldings between rooms. This product is rated for On Grade, Above and Below Grade installations.
This collection comes with a gorgeous, large plank format. The ultra wide, 9 inch planks will modernize any space, and the five foot length (60 inches) will help installing this floor much faster. Each plank of this floor is enhanced with a soft and realistic texture that is synchronized to the high definition wood-grain film. This process known as “Emboss in Register” or EIR, makes your floors look and feel like an actual hardwood floor. The beautiful texture of the planks is protected by a Ceramic Bead-finished 20 mil wear layer. This layer acts as a shield that protects the looks of your floors over time from scarring, scratching and even discoloration. It also provides superior stain resistance and easier cleanability. These floors are rated for both residential and commercial applications.
Unlike cheap vinyl and laminate floors, composite floors are 100% free of phthalates and formaldehyde. They are certified by FloorScore® so you can experience the bliss of cleaner air indoor. And thanks to the patented, last generation 5G® Locking System from Välinge, these floors can be easily installed by anyone without the need of fancy tools or equipment.
