ROBUSTO – Extremely Durable, Robust Laminate Flooring
There are situations in life in which you can’t afford to be sensitive. To deal with them, you need to be strong and hard. That expains why ROBUSTO is ideal for when extreme stresses need to be endured. With its 12-mm-thick, highly compacted fibreboard core and highly resistant surface, this robust laminate puts up with just about anything that comes down on it. Even in heavily trafficked commercial environments. Its click-together tongue-and-groove installation system also holds firm in any situation, having been specially developed to withstand peak loads. Even better, all this strength comes combined with good looks. Featuring modern oak interpretations with light and dark grey and brown hues, as well as an attractive mahogany décor and a walnut décor with fascinating grain, the ROBUSTO collection offers you a wide choice of first-rate alternatives.

The Benefits of Laminate
KRONOTEX laminate flooring predominantly consists of a renewable raw material: wood from sustainably managed forests.
Laminate floors are ideal for children’s bedrooms, as they don’t contain any plasticisers (phthalates). The German consumer magazine Ökotest even explicitly recommends them.
Robusto flooring is covered by an additional warranty lasting 30 years (for private use) or five years (for commercial use).
Because laminate is installed without nailing or gluing (as floating floors), no adhesive residues result.
Innovative embossing processes are used to give the surfaces of modern KRONOTEX laminate floors authentic-looking wood grain and stone structures.
Laminate flooring doesn’t contain any diethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP) and therefore can’t cause any changes in hormone levels.
At the end of the product lifecycle, laminate flooring can be unproblematically disposed of or burnt as fuel.
KRONOTEX uses the scrap resulting from the production of laminate flooring as fuel.
