Why durability and dimensional stability are key factors for timber flooring

With the immense number of suppliers of wood flooring into the Australian market, it is becoming more challenging for the specifier to decide what product is most suited for what project. During the selection process, colour is an important factor, but dimensional stability and durability should also be taken into consideration during the selection process.

Engineered wood components are now favoured over solid wood products right across building trades thanks to the enhanced dimensional stability and durable prefinished surface layer. Premium Floors engineered timber collection has a number of advantages:

1 | A reduction in the floor’s capacity to cup or convex in shape, due to its engineered, multi-layer construction.

2 | Less gaps thanks to Uniclic Multifit, the strongest and most stable click system on the market, with joins that can withstand up to 1000kg of horizontal pressure.

3 | R.T. (Scratch Resistant Technology): 7 layers of UV-cured high quality European lacquer are applied to every board to ensure maximum protection against wear and tear.

4 | The durability and abrasion resistance of the lacquers used is top priority. Premium Floors timber flooring has a top layer that is up to 20 times more durable than some competitors.

5 | Design capabilities – when you are chasing something a little “out of the box”, Premium Floors will help you design your ideal timber floor.
