Quick-Step Australia was involved in the creation and development of three new products for the Largo laminate flooring range in Australia.

Over the last 12 months, Quick-Step Australia’s National Product Manager, Kendall Waller has vigorously researched and created three beautiful Largo products, which will be available in Australia this May.

Realising the demand in Australia for wider boards with a matt finish in an Australian species, Kendall scoured three Australian states to find the perfect timber, going through specimens from lumber yards and telegraph poles to new materials and recycled materials.

For the process to go to the next level, a large quantity of material was required to hand select the panels that would ultimately be used. The boards were then cut, sawn and dressed, followed by a treatment using a range of coating products to achieve the best colour and surface finish. Quick-Step also used other effects including brushing, saw cuts, burning, scrapping and marking in order to create the exact finish and look.

According to Kendall, this is the first time that Quick-Step Australia has been involved in adding to the Largo platform. Every board is carefully considered and then couriered directly to Quick-Step HQ in Belgium, where the panels are scanned and converted into digital data. This process has led to the launch of three sublime products in the Largo range: Blackbutt, Spotted Gum and Recycled Hardwood.

Quick-Step flooring is available in Australia from Premium Floors .
