V4 scoop two Flooring Innovation Awards in best design and underlay categories 2018

We are absolutely thrilled to have picked up two awards in the 2018 Flooring Innovation Awards.

The industry’s newest awards scheme recognises everything that’s new, exciting and innovative in the UK flooring industry, with a judging panel made up of flooring industry leaders, editors of trade and home interest magazines and readers of The Stocklists.


Our first badge of honour comes in the Design category for our new Landscapes Engineered Wood Floor collection.

V4 Wood Flooring’s new Landscapes collection was created around a vision to bring nature inside on an impressive scale.

Landscapes comprises beautiful extra wide boards produced with hand rendered European Oak.

Each of Landscapes four colour finishes are inspired by the natural tones embedded in our organic landscape.  The collection features the light oak tones of a Barley Field, the warm and earthy Furrowed Hill, a soothing natural flow in Water Meadow and impactful character of Moorland.

The surface of each board has been finished by skilled craftsmen using traditional hand tools to plane and scrape the oak, following the natural contours of the grain and adding extra character to the undulating surface. They are then washed with a natural monochrome hard wax staining treatment to deliver striking muted tones.

The finished boards measure an impressive 2200mm by 240mm creating a natural feeling of space and flow to any room.


And badge two was awarded to Wood’s Good Eco Gold in the underlay innovation category.

We recently launched Wood’s Good Eco Gold Underlay as a major advancement in sustainable underlay solutions.  The product has been designed to support and cushion wood flooring with an underlay made from recycled car tyres.

The insulating gold foil vapour barrier also protects against the possibility of rising moisture.

The rubber crumb has been specifically developed for use with laminate or wood flooring, designed to provide resilience, durability and support to protect against undue stress in wood and laminate floors.

From a relatively light weight it delivers excellent impact sound insulation and the integrated gold metallised scrim ensures good resistance to moisture transmission eliminating the need for additional polythene sheeting.

It is also ideal for use with underfloor heating achieving a low tog rating.

As innovation winners we now await September’s Harrogate Flooring show where the judges will cast final judgement and select overall Innovation Gold winners.
