What is Engineered Wood Flooring?
Our engineered wood planks are virtually identical to hardwood flooring, only much stronger and more cost-effective.
We ‘engineer’ our wood planks using layers of plywood (made from pine, birch, spruce, and poplar) which are fitted to your wood of choice. This layered composition is incredibly flexible and bolsters the lamella, allowing installation in a much wider variety of settings than hardwood.

The Advantages of Engineered Wood Plank Flooring
Unlike traditional hardwood floors, our engineered wood plank flooring is much more environmentally friendly – and this is thanks to how it is made.
Hardwood planks must be at least 14 mm thick, and can sometimes be cut to 22 mm. However, engineered wood planks make up their heft with thinly layered plywood. This way, the hardwood lamella only will only need to be 2 or 6 mm thick.
This means that for every tree we harvest, 60% more timber is yielded.
On top of this, our oak and walnut timber is sourced from managed woodlands. Each tree is monitored for its quality of growth and overall health, allowing for less material wastage when the time comes for felling, and the halt of viral transmission between root systems.
Fast-acting saplings are also planted for every tree taken, which helps the cycle to replenish in line with supply demand.
OUR ECO PROMISE
With the robustness of its multi-ply base, engineered wood plank flooring can be made from almost any species of hardwood – and, in turn, can be laid in most locations around your home, providing level support across all underfloor constructs.
We choose to make all our engineered wood planks from European oak and American walnut. Over the years, we have found them to be the most heavy-duty and adaptable.
Versatility also comes from our precision-cut lock systems and tongue & groove fittings, which allow for simple installation and wood flooring that stays together without warping or creaking, unlike hardwood alternatives.
High Performance in All Conditions
Engineered wood planks are extremely flexible, meaning they can be fitted in areas of your home where levels of moisture and temperature fluctuate. This means you can also install our wood flooring over underfloor heating systems, which hardwood floors cannot be. Our engineered wood planks are the ideal thickness for even heat transfer across your home.
We finish off our robust engineered wood planks with high-quality and low-VOC lacquer and oil, which brings out the natural beauty of the grain patterning and protects it from wear and tear.
