Kalimera Six Star Flooring Systems

When it comes to maintaining acoustic compliance while installing hard flooring in your home, the easiest way to do this is through the use of an acoustic underlay. Flooring systems (the floorboards and underlay together) are awarded a star rating based on their identified noise transmission levels, with the highest possible score being a six star rating.

With most multi-residential buildings having requirements for acoustic compliance, and high levels of noise pollution being identified as a significant hazard in the home, it makes sense to do everything you can to create a quieter interior environment. After all, you’ll be creating a healthier home, and helping to ensure that your renovations don’t get you in trouble with body corp.

That’s why creating a six star system with our Kalimera Laminate is such a good idea:

What Is Kalimera?

Meaning “good morning” Kalimera is a Carpet Court Australia exclusive collection. Featuring eight European Oak décors and a natural theme, this collection is water resistant, features an Embossed in Register finish, and can be installed in even the highest traffic areas of your home. Installed using a UNICLIC locking system, Kalimera is a great choice for those with children and/or pets as it is highly resilient to daily life.

What Is A Six Star Flooring System?

A six star flooring system is an installation which returns an LnTw level of 40 or less during testing. When this is achieved, the AAAC awards the system its highest rating – an important certification for many projects.

When translated into real life, this means that your floors will be quieter when you walk on them and will not transmit as much sound to other floors of the building. This benefits both you and any neighbours you may have, and is the reason why many owners’ corporations have requirements for certain levels of acoustic compliance.

How Do You Achieve A Six Star System With Kalimera?

Our Kalimera collection of Laminate flooring achieves a six star acoustic rating when paired with our ThermaTread Hard Flooring Underlay. Part of our Flooring Accessories collection, this underlay can be purchased alongside your new Kalimera floors.

What Other Benefits Does ThermaTread Offer?

In addition to helping you create a quieter indoor environment and meet compliance standards, ThermaTread features an R rating of 0.11 meaning it can assist in maintaining your internal environment at your preferred temperature thanks to its thermal qualities.

Good acoustic properties are important both for the health of your family and regulatory obligations. Quieter environments are better for everyone, so our Hybrid floors come with a pre-adhered underlay that helps ensure their acoustic compliance.


Floors that feature a waterproof surface are a great choice for those worried about spills or other accidents in their home. Our Luxury Vinyl Plank floorboards and Hybrid floors feature an inherently waterproof surface thanks to their water-resistant construction, while our Laminate floors enjoy a waterproof surface thanks to their aluminium oxide wear layer.


In some cases – like with our Luxury Vinyl Plank floors and Hybrid flooring – a waterproof surface also means that floorboards are suitable for installation in wet areas such as bathrooms (excluding shower bases) and laundries. This allows for the creation of a seamless design throughout your entire home – a great perk for those who want consistency in their style. 


Hard floors are assigned a Class Rating based on their suitability for different situations.


When you see Class Rating 23 assigned to a floor, this means that it is suitable for installation in even the highest traffic areas of your home.


Class Rating 23 is the highest residential rating achievable and is applicable to most Imagine Floors by Airstep flooring collections.
