A new system of concrete tongue and groove flooring has seen soaring popularity over the last few months for a diverse range of applications across residential, retail and commercial settings. The only system of its kind in the world, Concreate tongue and groove flooring is designed to be retrofitted onto any substrate.

The individual concrete planks come together seamlessly to create a monolithic feature reminiscent of traditional timber flooring while also creating a raw contemporary feel similar to a poured concrete floor.

Concreate launched in New Zealand about 18 months ago, with its concrete tongue and groove flooring, as well as a similar timber veneer product that can be juxtaposed and used in conjunction with the concrete product to create seamless transitions between spaces.

One of the most popular benefits of this system is that it is designed specifically to be retrofitted onto almost any substrate,” Concreate’s Mark Wilson says. “If a client is wanting to have a polished concrete floor in a retrofit situation, that would normally mean removing whatever substrate is there entirely and then pouring the concrete. The beauty of this system is it can be glued down on top of the substrate to create a new concrete floor without removing what is already there.”

It’s not always possible to pour a concrete floor, especially in multi-level situations, which is one area where the Concreate system has generated a lot of interest. “People are wanting that raw, industrial look and this tongue and groove flooring creates a contemporary linear aesthetic that can be achieved in situations where poured concrete floors are not an option,” Mark says. “We’re also seeing the system gaining popularity in the retail and commercial sector as an easy to install and particularly durable solution.”

But while the 300mm-wide planks are contemporary in form and function, they are also a nod to traditional timber flooring. “We’re seeing a mix of the timber and concrete planks being specified to create that harder, raw concrete feel in residential kitchen areas, for example, and then transitioning through to a softer timber look as the space moves into a living area.”

The planks themselves are made up of a 14mm magnesium oxide base with a skimmed concrete finish, while the timber planks have the same base and timber veneer finish. “Magnesium oxide is an extremely robust material, which is why this system is particularly popular for both residential and commercial areas with high foot traffic,” Mark says.
