Material

Parador vinyl flooring is available in four different product types, which differ in terms of their product structure. Vinyl flooring from solid material consists completely of the durable, robust material vinyl. Vinyl flooring with HDF core board consists of a vinyl core layer applied to a fibreboard (HDF) and a cork layer. Vinyl flooring with SPC core board, on the other hand, is made up of the vinyl core layer, a solid polymer core board (SPC) that is suitable for use in damp areas and an acoustic backing. Vinyl flooring for gluing has an extra thin and resistant vinyl core board. Vinyl floors allow excellent texturing of the surfaces. In this way, authentic reproductions of the natural materials of wood or stone are created.

Technology

Parador vinyl flooring is characterised by a functional composition and intelligent technology. Our click systems thus guarantee easy installation, while swell-resistant core boards provide reliable protection against moisture. All Parador vinyl floors are suitable for underfloor heating. In particular, the flooring types made of solid vinyl, with SPC core board and for gluing are water resistant and therefore ideal for use in bathrooms and kitchens.

Healthy Living

All Parador vinyl floors are low in emissions and allergens and contribute to a balanced life cycle assessment thanks to their robustness and long life cycle. All Parador vinyl flooring products are regularly tested with very good results. The special surface coating has a repellent effect against dirt and bacteria. Our vinyl flooring is very quiet and easy to clean, making it perfect for households with pets, children and allergy sufferers.

Decor Consistency

All four product types in the Basic product line are characterised by having the same decors. Those with a choice will no longer face a dilemma, but instead will find their favourite decor in all four categories for a wide range of applications.

Surface Design

Real beauty amazes not only the eye: the natural-looking surfaces of the Parador vinyl floors, together with the bevel image, offer an impressively coherent overall experience. While the bevel 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.

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.

  • 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".
