Hybrid Flooring


The next generation in high performance flooring.

  • Hybrid flooring can withstand the harshest of New Zealand’s climatic changes from hot, wet and cold making it ideal for use in any environment across the country.
  • Withstanding the heaviest foot traffic at home or in commercial areas, Hybrid boards are 100% waterproof, and can be wet mopped and installed in wet areas.
  • Trigon™ core technology displays astonishing stability in the most extreme climates, handling temperature changes with minimal expansion and contraction.
  • All Hybrids come with pre-adhered underlay for improved acoustics and underfoot comfort.  The improved acoustics also enables use in multi residential applications, and decreases the cost of installation.

What is Hybrid?

Hybrid is the latest flooring innovation, combining the best attributes of both laminate and vinyl to create a rigid floating floor that can be installed throughout the entire home. Hybrid is made of multiple layers of materials pressed together for an extremely hard-wearing floor.

These layers are as follows:

  • UV coating provides a hard-wearing surface with high impact resistance.
    • The decorative layer replicated the look of an authentic hardwood floor.
    • Trigon® Core Technology layer features a limestone composite core board that is waterproof and stable in extreme temperature changes.
    • A pre-adhered acoustic backing delivers improved acoustics and comfort underfoot as well as decreasing installation costs.
