Veneered floors

Veneer parquet: natural and affordable

Innovative and completely in vogue, veneer parquet presents itself: A floor with a real wood surface, which is lightweight and flexible to lay – for a good price. A thin layer of veneer is attached to a highly compressed substrate. The low overall height ensures laying in almost any room. A resistant seal protects the veneer from dirt and wear. In addition, impact sound insulation made of cork is also incorporated in the substrate layer.

The appearance:

Visually there is hardly any difference between the significantly less expensive veneer or multi-layer parquet and solid wood floors. Because after they have been laid, only the surface is visible, even with solid wood floors. Veneer flooring is pleasantly warm on the feet, robust and easy care. An ideal flooring for private residential sector, for bedrooms, living rooms, children's bedrooms or dining rooms. Veneer floorings are not suitable for wet rooms. All the usual wood species are available to choose from (Birch, Beech, Oak, Maple, and many more) as well as the exclusive species, such as Wenge, Zebrano or Jatoba. It is offered both lacquered and oiled.

The advantages:

Veneer flooring is particularly sparing in its use of resources. Because from one Oak trunk with an average 5.5 cubic metres of solid timber only approx. 95 m² solid wood flooring can be produced, but 3,600 m² of veneer flooring. That is almost 40 times as much! Thanks to the sparing use of the raw material, exclusive wood species can also be used, which would be prohibitively expensive as solid wood floorings.

Another major advantage of veneer flooring is its high resistance. Due to the thin surface layer, which is attached to a highly compressed substrate, a particularly stiff composite is formed, which deforms significantly less than conventional real wood floorings when hit by an object.

The laying:

Veneer parquet is easy and quick to lay and requires no gluing: The parquet elements merely have to be jointed together straight. The small overall height (7.5mm and higher) does not cause any problems at all, even for renovations. Solid wood parquet on the other hand has to be completely glued to the substrate – ideally by a specialist firm - which is often not wanted in rented apartments.

Convincing: the low overall height of veneered floorings and its large resistance.
Veneered floorings are also available in unusual wood species - here Zebrano - and are excellent value for money.
