Engineered wood floors made up of three layers of solid wood, covered with a protective finish. Thanks to the careful selection of raw material and a perfect control of the moisture content of the wood during the manufacturing process, hardwood engineered floors guarantee optimum stability and durability.
1. A Finishing Layer
Depending on the floor you choose, this finishing layer may consists of: Several layers of UV-cured water based lacquer. This lacquer protects your floor against wear, scratches and stains, and makes it as easy to maintain. Two layers of quality modified oil which creates an extra matt and natural authentic look and which ages gracefully.
2. A Face Layer
A carefully selected, solid wood layer in a vast array of colours and structures. Where the flooring is 20mm thick the top later will normally be 6mm. When the flooring is 14mm or 15mm thick the top layer is normally 3 mm.
3. A Core Layer
The core layer is what makes a floor stable and durable. It absorbs stress and strain and keeps the floor stable in all conditions. The balance between the hardness and the flexibility of the core material is crucial in ensuring a smooth click and a strong connection.
4. A Veneer Backing
A backing layer of spruce or pine veneer. In combination with the other layers, it prevents the floor from cupping or warping.
