Classic and modern hard floors alike now have more benefits than drawbacks. The few remaining limitations mostly depend on intensity of use and the size of the floor space involved. Laminate may weaken in moisture-prone areas, wooden floors don't appreciate excessive stress, tiles usually require greater outlay for fitting, and a constant eye needs to be kept on the dimensional stability of large designer vinyl floors. Anyone looking to address all these issues from the outset is bound to be interested in ZIRO's alternative. The company is premiering its Ceralan mineral-based flooring at DOMOTEX 2018 in Hannover.

ZIRO is showcasing Ceralan as a floor covering all-rounder thanks to its many benefits. The click-together technology makes Ceralan quick and easy to fit, it is more robust than conventional parquet flooring, it withstands damp environments and has excellent dimensional stability. On large areas up to 1,000 square meters, Ceralan does not require any expansion joints or separating bars. The mineral backing board also conducts the heat from underfloor heating to the surface faster than virtually any other flooring, an experience particularly appreciated by anyone walking barefoot. Ceralan is now available in incredibly realistic wood and stone designs and also features integrated green footfall sound insulation to keep noise levels down.
