Recycled Timber Floorboards
Engineered timber flooring is composed of two or more layers of wood in the form of a plank. The top layer (lamella) is the wood that is visible when the flooring is installed, and is adhered to the core (or substrate) which provides the stability.
Recycled Timber Innovations’ multi-ply 14mm product has 9 cross sectional layers of hardwood ply with a 3mm + or – 0.5mm timber wear layer. Our multi-ply 19mm product has 12 cross sectional layers of hardwood ply with a 3mm + or – 0.5mm timber wear layer. In both the 14 and 19mm products the top hardwood timber lamella is glued and pressed to the top surface of the plywood using a high strength adhesive.
Engineered timber holds many advantages over the traditional solid T&G flooring. Firstly, Recycled Timber Innovations multi-ply engineered flooring only requires a 1/4 of the timber that solid flooring requires, therefore conserving our worlds forests. Engineered flooring can also be installed very quickly, many flooring installers report that they are 20-40% more productive when using our multi-ply product over solid T&G flooring. Engineered flooring, when finished, will give the same appearance and will generally have just as much wear layer as a solid T&G floor. Due to the cross laminations of the engineered flooring substrate, the stability of the engineered product is much better then its solid counterpart.
