Classen Gets 2 New Collections NALFA Certified

WASHINGTON D.C., 2021 — The North American Laminate Flooring Association is proud to announce that Classen International’s new Landmark and Inspirations collections are now NALFA Certified. The Classen 8mm Landmark and Inspirations collections are NALFA certified to Level 3 – Commercial Use as well as Surface Swell, classifying the products as water resistant laminate floors.

NALFA LF-01 is the only certification for the laminate flooring industry that helps specifiers and end users easily identify manufacturers and products that adhere to the highest quality performance requirements. Such performance requirements include 14 rigorous tests: static load, thickness swell, light resistance, cleanability/stain resistance, large ball impact resistance, small ball impact resistance, wear resistance, dimensional tolerances, castor chair resistance, surface bond, formaldehyde core compliance, flatness, openings, and ledging. The NALFA LF-01 standard and test methods and the Surface Swell requirements can be found and downloaded from the Standards and Test Methods page of the NALFA website.
