The new collection includes 12 coastal-themed styles with attached acoustic padding for quieter, more comfortable rooms. Like the original Cali Vinyl Pro line, planks are 100% waterproof and strengthened with a GeoCore spine of limestone composite.
Cali is adding an extra layer of comfort to its highly popular Cali Vinyl line this winter. The new collection, Cali Vinyl Pro with Mute Step includes attached acoustic padding for quieter rooms and softer steps. The specialized IXPE cushion lines the bottom of each plank, providing an extra layer of sound insulation.
Like all Cali Vinyl collections, ‘Mute Step’ is 100% waterproof and can be installed in kitchens, bathrooms, and basements. An extra durable construction allows for easy cleaning and includes a commercial-grade 20 mil thick scratch resistant wear layer for busy homes. Sturdy click-lock milling makes for fast room transformations with no need for glue or nails.
As a progression of Cali Vinyl Pro, ‘Mute Step’ contains the same GeoCore spine as its predecessor. This fortifying layer of flexible limestone composite helps prevent indentation and increases dimensional stability, allowing planks to be installed right out of the box without any acclimation or transition pieces.
Twelve fresh styles inspired by seaside colors and textures bear authentic hardwood imagery, with surface embossing that matches up with the knots and grains you see. There’s a shade for every aesthetic, from the warm hues of Coastal Eucalyptus and Huntington Hickory to stormier grays like Breakwater Oak and Long Shore Pine.
