rc Rigid Core Rigid Core Essentials

Overview

Engineered for property management applications, Rigid Core Essentials combines classic designs inspired by natural hardwood with an ultra-dense rigid core.

Plays a Positive Role in Sound Blocking
Rigid Core Essentials helps prevent airborne sound as well as impact noise from being transmitted between building floors. With a Delta IIC of 25, Rigid Core Essentials can block almost as much sound as a 6” slab of concrete, making it a great option for property management spaces.

Light Commercial Performance
The rigid core, combined with a low-maintenance 12-mil wear layer, protect against dents, doesn’t telegraph minor subfloor imperfections, and resists scratches, scuffs, and stains.

Easy Installation
Install in a snap, without the need for adhesive or a separate pad or underlayment. Sturdy planks lock into place quickly and the attached underlayment helps hide minor subfloor imperfections.
