Laminate flooring is made 100% from natural resources, notably wood. The heart is a board made of compressed wood fibres (HDF board). On the underside there is a so-called backing to stabilise it. Some floors have an integrated sound-absorbing cushion here too. On top is the laminate flooring’s “face”, the decor paper e.g. with authentic wood effects or stone decors or really creative designs. The top layer (the walking layer) consists of tough melamine resin. This makes the laminate flooring incredibly durable and easy to maintain.
Real brand laminate flooring is also really authentic: The specially embossed surfaces of MEISTER laminate flooring are matched individually to the decorative image. The advantage: When you move your fingers over the surfaces you actually feel wood pores, filled knots and cracks – just like you wood with real wood flooring (such as parquet flooring for example). Different depths and degrees of gloss determine the variety of the special pore structures and give this floor its authentic appearance. This minor but actually perceptive detail makes our high-grade MEISTER laminate flooring stand out from the rest.
With Premium laminate flooring (Melango, Talamo and Micala collections) the technical advantages go even further. For one thing, these laminate flooring versions are equipped with comprehensive protection against humidity (“Aqua Safe system”). It makes the hard floor covering resistant to cleaning water and protects the planks from humidity penetration, particularly at the joints. In addition, MEISTER Premium laminate flooring has been given the special “Diamond Pro” surface treatment. This increases resistance against micro-scratches and abrasion and offers additional protection against wear. The “antistatic” feature is a special highlight. It protects against electric charging – and since dirt is also less attracted, the floor covering is much easier to clean.
With MEISTER, you have the choice between different formats (Long plank, Compact plank, tile) as well as a wide range of different wood, stone and other decors. Long plank formats take effect especially in generously sized rooms, while compact formats are suitable for all rooms and can be transported and installed with extreme ease. One central design factor is the appearance of the joints. While products without joints ensure a continuous, harmonious-looking floor, planks with an all-round joint are clearly distinguished from each other, thus creating a particularly structured look. With country house style planks in particular, longitudinal joints create a beautiful effect and make the planks appear almost endless.
In terms of colours, (almost) everything is possible, from light maple through natural oak effect to dark imitation slate.
Patented click systems not only ensure convenient, fast and low-price installation without screwing or gluing: They also ensure that laminate flooring planks remain in place long-term. Some of our products even include the sound-absorbing cushion (watch out for the “S” in the product name). That makes installation even more fun, even for DIY installers.
Care is extremely straightforward too: Vacuuming is sufficient in the case of light soiling, while damp wiping with matching cleaning products from specialist retailers will take care of heavier soiling. In contrast to other products, this type of flooring does not require time-consuming oiling or sealing treatment. See this article about installing laminate flooring for more information.
