Our experience provides the foundation for this and is combined with the drive to constantly develop our expertise further in all relevant segments. The broad level of expertise is shown in the wide product range, from decors in stone finishes through to fine textile materials and classic wood floors. The Parador portfolio with approx. 2,000 products is as varied as mankind itself. Within the different types of floor, our customers can choose between individual price and performance levels, because Parador offers quality with a system that can react to a number of individual needs and ideas. The added value of our floors not only lies in the range of choice, the sustainable production and the excellent design, but also in the intelligent functionality of our products. Click connections enable your floor to be easily installed, whilst processing and finishing techniques create resistance and durability at the highest level. Unique accessories – for example our large choice of matching skirting boards – are proof of our high standard of quality in the details too. Quality with system – a claim that our customers can feel in all our products.
