Empower Rigid Core

Empower Rigid Core flooring is built using our innovative Reinforced Mineral Core (RMC), which provides superior indent resistance (25x better than WPC product) and extreme stability and allows Empower to be installed under cabinets and islands, a rare benefit in rigid core flooring. Most rigid core installations require an expansion gap — that must be covered with trim — because rigid core flooring with vinyl-based cores expand and contract too much for cabinets and islands to be pinned to them. Empower provides all the same benefits of rigid core flooring, but saves time (and subsequently, money) on the install process while providing a cleaner, finished look that doesn’t require trim.
