rc Rigid Core Rigid Core Elements


Engineered for property management applications, Rigid Core Elements combines beautiful designs with an ultra-dense rigid core, making it the perfect choice for your next multi-family project.

Inspired Design
Choose from 15 distinct visuals, each designed to mimic the natural allure of American Elm, Oak, or Hickory hardwoods. Choose from warm browns, creamy neutrals, and cool grays — all in 6" or 7" width planks — for a fresh, modern look.

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 neatly, and you can install them over most existing subfloors or flooring (even those with minor imperfections).
