The wood floor is the protagonist
of new trends.
Discover the unique characteristics!
The wood floor combines excellent technical performance practices to considerable strength decorative and brings with it a strong charge linked to its natural origin and heat transmitting.
Thanks to a wide range of types and colors,ranging from light to dark woods, passing by the reds and browns, and the many finishes and pose you can get the most personalized, creating a sophisticated and noteworthy.
What for thousands of yars ago the ideal material for wood flooring is a set of natural properties, essential for our comfort, let's find out together.
A wood floor, especially if well treated superficially is fully washable. If you are treated with wax, more demanding in maintenance, will give more stisfaction in having it and repay us widely of the labors of waxing once every six months or so.
Suitable for underfloor heating as well, wood keeps the floors warm in winter and cool in summer, making it the most pleasant environments and helping to reduce energy consumption.
The wood also provides sound insulation, giving peace and comfort in the home and office. The excellent acoustic wood's properties make it the recommended material for floors of auditoriums and theaters.
Toughness is the ability of wood to placed to penetration by a body. The impression produces is more or less profound depending on hardness index of woody species examined.
There are several methods of detection. What we got is the method Janka. The hardness in this case is detected by measuring the force required to penetrate in KP, in wood sample under test, a steel ball with a dimeter of mm 11.284 until its maximum circle (i.e. up to its diameter).
The higher the index, the greater the Janka hardness of wood species. In the case ofreal wood floors, the hardness index is always reported as proper information to the end user or technician; However it is important only in some specific cases depending on the intended use of the flooring.
It should be said that all species intended to claim good flooring hardness ratios; Therefore, for a parquet destined to residential, the hardness is a value of modest importance.
Higher is the Janka index, greater will be the hardness of wood species. In the case of real wood floors, the hardness index is always reported as proper information to the end user or technician.
However it is important only in some specific cases depending on the intended use of the flooring.
It should be said that all species intended to claim good flooring hardness raitios; Therefore, for a parquet destined to residentialm the hardness is a value of modest importance.
In case of heavy traffic environments and tramping destination (office, exhibitions, public places, etc.), indicators of hardness assume, together with others, a great importance. In relation to the specific provisions of the wooden parts some formats may express a high aptitude for pressure resistance and penetration, regardless of thekind of wood tha they made up. This is the case of Stepping Floor format, consisting of small blades, assembled together in so-called "edge" or vertical position, and compacted into parallelepiped blocks. This format comprises proves extraordinarily durable and rugged enough to be used for the flooring of environments subjected to maximum stress.
