HKS from Münster, Germany, has stood for exceptional know-how and passion for indoor and outdoor wooden floors for almost 190 years. “Our core competence is oak two-ply based on plywood.

HKS lounge is a new and innovative wooden floor, that is completely made from natural and harmless materials. It combines the sustainability and naturalness of a premium parquet with the durability and easy maintenance of a vinyl floor. Due to the patented 5G®-Click connection, the installation is also for DIY enthusiasts very simple and quick to handle.
The thin and resource-saving oak toplayer, the high quality birch plywood base and the integrated cork underlay underneath, are creating an extremely environmentally friendly floor.
HKS lounge is the perfect choice for people who love wood and the nature, but do not want to take any compromises when it comes to functionality.
