Pergo has successfully completed a real-life test with our brand new Sensation laminate flooring. On 24 November, fashion blogger and lifestyle consultant Mrs. Murphy held a special workshop on “How to be sensational in high heels” on a Pergo Sensation floor at the famous Rose Club in Stockholm (Sweden), followed by a sparkling champagne party.
The next day, the floor was inspected, revealing that it had remained unscathed and showed no signs of scratches or wear even after high heel dancing and spilled drinks.
like a real diva, the Pergo Sensation laminate held itself perfectly. Truly ‘Sensational ’!
According to self-proclaimed ‘Agent of Fabulousness’ Mrs. Murphy, learning how to walk elegantly in high heels is essential to a woman’s good health. Having lived half her life at higher altitudes herself, she is a real expert on the subject. That’s why she decided to organise her own two-hour workshop to share her knowledge and experience with other women who want to shine on high heels.
For a recent edition of the workshop — and a bubbly after-party — Pergo contacted Mrs. Murphy. The goal? To demonstrate how Pergo’s Sensation laminate can withstand the impact of high heels as well as spilled drinks, and still look stunning. Mission accomplished: the day after, close inspection of the floor revealed no stains, scratches or signs of wear whatsoever.
Mrs. Murphy: “Like every single one of my workshops, there was a lot of laughing and flaunting on high heels, and in the heat of the moment occasionally a glass of champagne was spilled. But like a real diva, the Pergo Sensation laminate held itself perfectly. Truly ‘Sensational ’!”
Pergo Sensation floors aren’t just exceptional in terms of performance: they are total lookers as well. Innovative technologies have enabled Pergo to create an authentic, true-to-nature surface that reproduces the deep grooves of real wood to perfection. The natural look is further enhanced by a brand-new matt finish, adding to the sensational, wood-like feel.
Another important feature of Pergo Sensation laminate is its water resistance, combined with a PerfectFold™ drop-down system that enables quick and easy installation. While a laminate surface is water repellent in itself, the joints often are not. Sensation solves this problem in two ways: first, by pressing the bevel into the plank during production and by adding a waterproof AquaSafe coating in the joint. Add to this the multilayer TitanX™ surface protection, and water — or champagne for that matter — have absolutely no chance of seeping in.
Lotta Sunden, Brand Manager Pergo adds some explanation about the remarkable result: “Durability is one of the core values of the Pergo brand. There is ordinary laminate flooring, and then there is Pergo. We invented laminate flooring 35 years ago and, to this day, we continue to lead the way in the development of the product’s appearance, durability, feel, and eco-friendliness. Pergo commercial floors are incredibly durable, which means they will look beautiful even after years of intensive use.”
The secret lies in Pergo’s patented TitanX surface protection: a unique multilayer technology that provides superior impact resistance for dropped objects and high heels. Sunden: “This extreme durability is the reason that we can boldly guarantee our floors against wear and stains for up to 33 years — the best warranty on the market.”
