Pergo recently launched a new premium laminate floor collection made to handle commercial performance and design
requirements. Pergo Pro™ is best used for large commercial projects including retail, education, hospitality, and
business offices. Pergo Pro flooring comes in a variety of looks from exotic stone tile to plain whitewashed designs.
Raleigh, NC, October 22, 2009 –– Pergo is introducing Pergo Pro – a new premium collection made
specifically to exceed the design and performance requirements of commercial environments. Featuring the latest product
design features and exclusive wear and performance technologies, Pergo Pro is ideal for larger commercial installations –
including retail, business, healthcare, education, hospitality and multi–family housing.
"Architects and specifiers now have a superior alternative to hardwood flooring for commercial installations," said Mike
Nielsen, vice president of Pergo Commercial Sales. "New Pergo Pro provides a unique blend of benefits for various commercial
applications because it couples the look and feel of real wood with the superior durability of a true performance–grade
laminate. Lower in cost than real wood, Pergo Pro is more durable and easier to maintain. Installation also is quicker and
easier – and crews stay on schedule because it doesn’t require a drying down time."
Featuring a variety of new decors – from whitewashed to exotic to stone looks – Pergo Pro boasts
ultra–realistic textures and handcrafted styles. Natural detail and richness is achieved through a new manufacturing
technology that combines superior depth of color and texturing on a thick 10 mm core, and a patented aluminum oxide finish
ensures that the floor will not wear through, stain or fade – even after years of heavy foot traffic. Pergo Pro also
is extremely resistant to denting and scratching.
Designed to meet or exceed all standards established for commercial applications by the North American Laminate Flooring
Association (NALFA), Pergo Pro also is protected by a 15–year Limited Commercial Warranty. Offerings include both
standard eight–inch and five–inch narrow–width plank formats, and are as easy to install and maintain as
Pergo’s residential products. In addition to 21 flooring decors, the Pergo Pro collection boasts a wide range of
accessories, including coordinating moldings, underlayment and cleaning/care supplies.
"With Pergo Pro, we're continuing to lead the way in design and performance for the laminate industry," said George
Kelley, CEO of Pergo North America. "The commercial segment is an emerging market for laminate flooring, and with our latest
manufacturing and design technologies – we're able to leverage Pergo's reputation for quality and innovation in the
