Laminate flooring was invented in 1977 by the company who, today, remain at the forefront of the industry. That company is Pergo, and to this day they invest in research and development so that they can continue to carve the path at the head of the niche that they first created.
As manufacturers of laminate and vinyl flooring with unique, patented properties, their products are considered amongst the very best in the market by suppliers and consumers alike. They have plants in North America, where their market is predominantly focused on supplying residential properties. In Europe, where they have factories based in Sweden, they make products that are sold for use in commercial settings, as well as supplying to residential environments.
Pergo’s historic association with the material, and their stance as market leaders on both sides of the Atlantic, means that they have a global reputation in laminate. As developers of a product that emulates the appearance of wood without the need for logging on a commercial scale, their success as product developers has had beneficial environmental consequences for the wider flooring industry.
Taking Their Environmental Role a Step Further
Just as they have led the pack in other parts of the industry, Pergo have led the way in the manner that flooring companies address ecological concerns too. Their ecological endeavours have always been close to the heart of what Pergo do, and this remains the case now.
Recycling is a key part of this policy. For example, 80% of their products’ content is made from wood surplus from the wood industry, and they use only renewable wood products. This is affirmed by their certification from the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification.
Additionally, they became the first flooring company to be awarded the Green Swan symbol by the Nordic Ecolabel. This shows their commitment to sustainability, and the low-level impact of their operations at every level, from raw materials to waste.
Our Pergo Products
The Pergo laminate flooring that we stock is all finished to resemble wood. Though considerably more affordable than having a solid wood floor fitted, laminate should not be considered an inferior choice.
As a material designed to simulate an appearance using an image coated in clear protective layer, it is less vulnerable to the sort of damage that natural materials can suffer. Its sealed outer layer makes it almost impenetrable to both dirt and moisture.
This means that cleaning and maintenance of the surface is easier, and because of the high build quality that defines the manufacturers that we choose to supply our products, the floor’s original high-quality appearance and feel is never compromised.
With its reputation for excellence, great look and durable quality, it’s not hard to see the reasons behind why laminate flooring from Pergo is so popular in both homes and commercial environments across the UK. You can browse the dedicated pages on our website that exhibit their whole range. Whatever your intended use, you can buy with confidence in their brand – we’re sure that you’ll be astounded by the quality finish that you can achieve at such a reasonable price.
