About TORLYS Flooring
TORLYS was founded in 1988 and has become a leader in innovative flooring for the past 30 years. TORLYS is recognized as one of the fastest growing flooring companies, and, as such, is highly skilled in creating products that are easily maintainable and long-lasting. Their long-lasting flooring is only one aspect of their sustainability efforts, and the company understands how critical it is to protect our environment, with much of their products containing partially recycled materials.
TORLYS was founded in Toronto, making it a fellow Canadian company, by Fernando Luz and Anibal Claudino. Their original mission was to provide outstanding and out-of-the-box flooring solutions. Peter Barretto took over the role of President and CEO of TORLYS and shifted their mission from a broader flooring supplier to become an international flooring distribution specialist.
TORLYS Smart Laminate and Quick-Step® NatureTek Laminate
TORLYS Smart Laminate and Quick-Step® NatureTek Laminate floorings are designed to be life-proof and look great in the process. This laminate flooring is no match for an active household and is practically indistinguishable from real hardwood flooring. TORLYS transition-free promise ensures that your space will be completely seamless, from the living room to the hallway, and into the bathroom!
TORLYS laminate flooring promises the best quality that the industry has to offer. The company has earned the North American Laminate Flooring Association (NALFA) Certification Seal by passing a variety of rigorous tests. The tests on their laminate flooring are designed to evaluate performance, durability, strength, and quality.
As for the water resistance of TORLYS laminate flooring, they were deemed the most swell-resistant when compared to ordinary laminate flooring. TORLYS laminate was tested for its water resistance by submerging them in water for 24 hours, where it outperformed standard laminate flooring, with the ordinary laminate swelling by over 20% and TORLYS laminate absorbing as low as 6%. This ensures that your TORLYS laminate flooring will not have ugly raised edges and minimal chipping.
Key Features of Torlys Laminate Floors
There are so many reasons for you to be excited about TORLYS flooring at Word of Mouth Floors. The features offered in many of TORLYS laminate flooring will give you peace at mind that your new flooring will be able to withstand the everyday hustle and bustle of life. The following is a list of features in some of the collections of TORLYS laminate, what they are, and how they will benefit you:
Aqua Protect is an edge coating that protects your flooring from moisture penetrating the plank’s core. This applies to TORLYS waterproof Smart Laminates.
Uniclic® Joint is one of the worlds most advanced joint system available on the market. This prevents any moisture from seeping in between planks with its strong interlocking system, so say good-bye to ugly gapping!
GenuEdge™ seals your planks by having the colour transfer over the edge into the bevel. This will further prevent moisture from entering the joints and core of your flooring.
HydroSeal is an edge coating that protects your flooring from moisture penetrating the plank’s core. This applies to TORLYS Quick-Step® NatureTek Laminates.
Inside the Planks
- The Top Layer is a top-coat layer that protects your flooring to ensure that it stays just as beautiful as when you installed it.
- The Decorative Layer is what makes your flooring look like authentic, textured hardwood.
- TORLYS Smart Core is a dense, dent resistant base that gives you an advantage against other, less compressed laminate floor cores.
- TORLYS Uniclick® Joint ensures that your flooring is gap-resistant and waterproof, while remaining simple to install.
- The Bottom Layer adds stability to your flooring and provides an extra level of moisture protection.
Torlys Beautiful Finishes
TORLYS laminate flooring guarantees a superior performance. One way that TORLYS does this is with their finishes on their laminate. The top layer of every Smart Laminate and Quick-Step® NatureTek Laminate flooring is made from a transparent mixture of water-resistant melamine resin and aluminum oxide. This transparent finish guarantees that your flooring will be able to withstand a busy residential household, and that you will be able to sleep soundly knowing that your floors can look as elegant and gorgeous as when you first installed them.
Simple Installation and Maintenance
With the help of TORLYS innovative Uniclic® Joint, laminate flooring has never been so easy to install! Installation is glue and nail-free, so its simple for you to install yourself if you are up to it, you do not need a professional.
Maintenance on TORLYS laminate flooring is simplistic. Just keep in mind the following things:
- Ensure Regular Cleaning by sweeping or vacuuming your flooring and clean with a non-treated mop, warm water and non-acidic, non-alkaline cleaner.
- Protect from Damage by ensuring that you have mats at entryways and by using protective pads on the feet of your furniture. Make sure to lift heavy objects rather than dragging to avoid scratching the finish of your laminate flooring. Also avoid wearing high heal shoes, as they may dent your TORLYS flooring.
Torlys Soundproof Promise

Generally, TORLYS laminate has an Impact Insulation Class (IIC) of up to 71 when paired with TORLYS Safe and Sound 5-in-1 Foam Underlay.

Use of Renewable and Recycled Resources

LEED ® Certification

LEED® is an internationally recognized green building certification system that verifies the environmental sustainability of building materials, communities, and buildings. To receive certification, TORLYS proved that they are using strategies to improve performance across the following metrics: energy savings, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.
Indoor Air Quality
How can TORLYS laminate flooring get better? Well, they are more than safe for the air quality in your home! Their flooring is CARB compliant, meaning that they meet the formaldehyde emissions standards. What’s better, TORLYS laminate flooring meets or exceeds California’s strict indoor air quality standards (section 01350).

TORLYS Bulldog™ Easy Plank Replacer is a unique innovation that is exclusive to the TORLYS brand. And since TORLYS has a warranty of up to 35 years, you can be sure that your flooring will outlast most other laminate flooring brands.
