Armstrong Introduces Locking Hardwood

Lancaster, PA, January 31, 2007--“Elegant style in a snap” is now available in Locking Hardwood from Armstrong Hardwood Flooring with hand-crafted, sleek and exotic or traditional collections to complement any style, in species including Kona, Australian Wormy Chestnut, Ash, Bamboo, Birch and others. This new collection features 32 different products, all featuring the Armstrong exclusive NextGen patent-pending technology, which eliminates the need for glue, staples or nails and reduces installation time. Consumers can live on their new floor immediately--or remove and replace it later if they choose. Similar to “click” laminate floors where the panels are joined together without glue, NextGen is the result of nearly three years of research and development and offers a substantial reduction in the length of time required for installation. Since installation time is reduced, consumers have less disruption to their household and are able to enjoy their new hardwood floor faster. Locking hardwood floors from Armstrong are 100 percent genuine wood, with cross-ply engineered construction for a durable, rigid surface that won’t shift or buckle, and that can be installed in any level of the home, including the basement. The engineered construction controls the floor’s natural tendency to expand and contract, so these floors can be installed over a variety of subfloors, including wood, concrete and even existing vinyl. The collections offer 5-inch single planks and 5-inch two-strip planks with 15 and 25-year residential warranties and, in some cases, an additional 3-year commercial finish warranty. Armstrong offers attractive styling in domestic wood species such as Maple, Oak, Birch, Ash, as well as exotics like Bangkirai, Bamboo, Australian Wormy Chestnut, Merbau and Kona woods. Trend-setting visuals such as hand-scraped floors also are available in the locking construction, reflecting the resurgence in demand for handmade and unique. The Collections: Hand-sculpted Collection: Old World charm, NextGen easy. One-of-a-kind hardwood floors created by hand-sculpting just as craftsmen have done for centuries. Individually-detailed 5-inch wide planks with an extremely durable, low-gloss finish. Global Species Collection: Elegant style in a snap. Consumers can create a unique signature look using the dramatic styling and fine hardwoods in plank or strip designs. Oak Collection: Traditional beauty, NextGen technology. Traditional real sliced oak hardwood joins two 2-1/2" wide beveled strips into a single plank with a deluxe mid-gloss finish.
