Laminate flooring has enjoyed phenomenal success in both residential and commercial locations over the last fifteen years and there is no sign of the demand slowing down in the foreseeable future. After achieving great success in Europe it hit the U.K. in the early 90s but did not really attract much interest until a well known Swedish furniture retailer started selling it in their stores.
Laminate's popularity stems from its good looks - it is often difficult to tell it apart from real wood flooring - the competitive price, its durability and ease of maintenance. Melamine laminate flooring is made from the same material as kitchen worktops but with extra layers of resin papers bonded to its surface. This makes it exceptionally resistant to indentation, scratching, household chemicals, direct heat and strong sunlight, ideal for the toughest of heavy duty environments.
With Pennine’s history of distributing Hardwood floorings we were the first distributor in the North West to see Laminate’s potential and started stocking a range in 1994. Over the last few years, as more and more European manufacturers have exported their floorings to the UK but one company, above all other has led the field, Quick-Step. Inventors of the glueless tongue and groove locking system they have continually pushed the boundaries in terms of design, texture, features, formats and colour. For these reasons they are the market leaders are Pennine are proud to be their largest independent distributor in the U.K. For residential locations we stock every pattern in this market leader’s range
