Lowes Products, laminate flooring sold at Lowe's home improvement stores carries several brands of laminate floors. I have compiled a list of various laminate flooring products they sell. Some of the products they carry are not too easy to find in their stores. Some of their products on this page are ones I have searched out on the internet. Others are ones I have observed in their store. The inventory can vary from one Lowe's to another.
Swiftlock laminate is manufactured by Armstrong and sold exclusively by Lowes home improvement stores. It is manufactured under the name "Wood Collection" by Armstrong. The Wood Collection consists of 12 colors. You will not find the Swiftlock name at any other retailer. Although Armstrong manufactures other private label products for other retailers, such as Flooring America and Prosource. It may be difficult to cross reference the product between Lowes and Armstrong. Armstrong manufacturers over 160 individual laminate floors.

The only Kronotex I saw was the 6mm thick product designed for the budget minded consumer (labeled Surface Source). They only had the one color in stock Harvest Oak which is a medium oak color. This is the thinnest laminate flooring I have ever installed. When I installed this product I found a lot of damaged planks in the boxes. The planks did not fit together tight or flush. It carries a 10 year warranty and costs only .78 per square foot. I wouldn't recommend this flooring for normal use as it is the bottom of the barrel. As they say you get what you pay for. On the other hand it is an inexpensive way to change a room from old worn out carpet to a new and cleaner look if your on a tight budget. As of the beginning of 2013 I've noticed they don't sell a 6mm laminate any more. Their low end products are now 7mm. They probably had too many problems and returns with the 6mm laminate.
Surface source 7mm 1.27 per sq/foot, 15 year warranty.
Surface source 7mm 1.01 per sq/foot No Warranty shown. Plank size-7.6 X 50.8 inches.
