Armstrong Rigid Core Essentials Collection is Beautiful, long-lasting, easy-to-install flooring — designed to withstand all the elements. You want new floors that will look and perform their best when faced with just about anything — from scratches and stains to spills and sound. Rigid Core Essentials is built to withstand it all, so you can welcome enduring style to any room of your home.
Inspired Design: Choose from 10 distinct visuals, each designed to mimic the natural look of Hickory, Walnut, and Oak hardwoods.
Guaranteed to Last: Rigid core and a 12-mil wear layer protect against dents and other surface damage. Backed by our 30-year limited residential warranty and tough enough for light commercial use.
100% Waterproof: Install it anywhere — even kitchens, bathrooms, mudrooms and basements where floors can get the wettest. When exposed to water, planks will not swell, buckle or lose integrity.
Durable Hybrid Construction: From top to bottom, Rigid Core Essentials is built to resist dents, surface wear and moisture — so your floors stay beautiful year after year.
Easy Installation: Install in a snap, without the need for messy glue or a separate pad or underlayment. Rigid planks lock into place quickly and neatly, and you can install them over most existing subfloors or flooring (even ones with minor imperfections).
Range of Stylish Options: Let one of these classic or on-trend designs inspire a whole-room redo, or upgrade any space with a simple floor change. Choose from warm browns, creamy neutrals and cool grays — all in 6″ width planks — for a fresh, modern look.
