Material

Laminate flooring consists of almost one hundred per cent wood and is therefore both a natural material and inspiration. Together with high-density fibreboards, the decor papers enable the authentic interpretation of high-quality timbers. But other materials such as stone or concrete also find acceptance in our realistic laminate decors with their different formats, installation and joint images.

Technology

Parador laminate flooring is characterised by a functional composition and intelligent technology. Our patented click system guarantees easy installation. The edge impregnation protects against moisture and the abrasion-resistant top layer made of melamine resin ensures a very high load-bearing capacity. Our wear classes show that the floors are also well suited for heavy-duty use. Critical for a permanently durable result are our solid connections, which guarantee fitting accuracy and stability.

Healthy Living

Parador laminate flooring is low on emissions and allergens and ensures a pleasant indoor climate. We are happy to prove this by using only materials that are healthy for the home in our Parador laminate flooring. Test certificates such as TÜV and Blue Angel give our customers the necessary security. In addition, an increased conductivity reduces electrostatic charging. Our Parador laminate flooring is very durable and easy to clean, making it perfect for households with children, allergy sufferers and pets.

Surface Design

Real beauty amazes not only the eye: the natural-looking surfaces of the Parador laminate floors, together with the joint image, offer an impressively coherent overall experience. While the joint design distinguishes the characteristic profile of the floor, the texture embossing accentuates the materiality of the decor significantly, such as wood, stone or concrete. It is embossed deeper and flatter, but is always perceptible and friendly to those who walk on it barefoot, with shoes or on four paws: hard-wearing and easy to care for.

Guarantee and certificates

Parador offers premium quality "Made in Germany and Austria". Our many years of experience provides the foundation for this and is combined with the drive to constantly develop our expertise further in all relevant areas. Our customers can recognise the quality of our products by the brilliance of the decors, the perfection of the workmanship and the authenticity of the textures. That is why we offer our customers an extended manufacturer's warranty, depending on the selected product and the type and intensity of use. These can be viewed or downloaded here – as well as the individual product certificates. The declarations of performance for the products can be found in the respective technical data sheets, which are also available for download here.

  • CE

    The CE marking is obligatory according to EU law in connection with product safety. It is not a seal of approval (quality mark). The abbreviation "CE" stands for Communauté Européenne (French for "European Community"). The CE marking is frequently called a "passport" for the internal European market. The manufacturer or distributor confirms the conformity of the product with the applicable EU Construction Products Regulation (BauPVO) 305/2011 (since 01 July 2013) and compliance with the "essential requirements" specified there via a declaration of performance (DOP). Since 01 July 2007, the CE marking pursuant to EN 14041 is obligatory for “resilient, textile flooring and laminate flooring".
