Our Manufacturing Facilities
The Solid Wood Flooring Company's manufacturing cycle begins with a sustainable managed forest. The life cycle of these forest trees is over 150 years. This has enabled the felling each year of mature trees, leaving younger trees space to grow and at the same time allowing new trees to be planted, in fact more new trees are planted than there are harvested.
We have the capacity to produce 100,000 m2 of quality engineered wood flooring per month and with our own QC people on site at the production end we can guarantee consistency in keeping to the standards required.
In the manufacturing cycle, we maximize the log stability and strictly control the moisture level through our sawmill and kiln drying facility, all our floors are dried to less than 8% moisture content. Logs are precisely sawn to maximize output and reduce cost and then kiln dried to industry standards to increase the durability and dimensional stability of all our floors. Our very precise milling ensures an easy and impeccable installation. The planks are manufactured straight, with a constant thickness and width. Our high manufacturing standards and our quality control process assure an easy and worry free installation, which saves time and reduces wastage. Our specialists select the finest trees and carefully inspect all timber before accepting the logs into the manufacturing cycle.
We always “balance” our engineered wood flooring in a kiln after gluing the top layer to the engineered back layer to ensure that the moisture levels are consistent throughout the board which reduces the tendency of cheaper version of engineered boards to bend. This takes 14 days to achieve a proper balanced engineered wood floor.
All our facilities are FSC certified to ensure that all our products are sourced ethically with the environment in mind. They also have EUTR compliance certificates where appropriate to guarantee the correct due diligence on any timber materials sourced.
Wooden flooring products are just like us, every tree is individual and unique as this is how nature works. The grain and colour variation on any single species of tree will be different, just like every human being is different. Even identical twins will have personality differences even though they may look alike. The seasons and climate changes will have an impact on trees and can alter their hue, colour and structure.
