Covid 19 Update Read More

We are open for business as usual (although there here is nothing usual about this situation) with our transport company (Brooks Transport) who are designated by the government as critical to the covid response. We are still delivering direct to door or site, (however collections or visits to the warehouse are not possible.) Our IT systems allow us to work from home so our staff are protected. Please Call or Email Us for samples or orders. Our factories are back to full capacity and the supply chain is operating effectively which can be seen here. As a trade supplier we have a minimum requirement of 50m2 for any samples and supplies. Please call 01666 504015 if you require less. For Government advice please click here. Even with these steps we have made, we must pull together, support one another, and get through this as a group, a family, and feel proud to say to our wider community we are critical to the Covid-19 response, and we will support it for as long as we are able. Stay safe, stay well, look after yourself, and each other.

Lacquered Finishes

Here at the Solid Wood Flooring Company, we normally use Bona Naturale Industrial Lacquer with a gloss level of no more than 10% so that the board is completely sealed and has a matte finish. We can also apply the Bona ANTI Slip lacquer as well to meet the latest health and safety requirements in commercial applications.

We apply nine coats of the Bona Industrial finish from special base coats to seal the wood to the protective top coat. We do not use Aluminium Oxide which a lot of manufactures use and the problem with this is that it can scratch leaving a white mark.

The production process is very efficient with the nine stations using rollers to apply the various coats and heat chambers and UV lights to cure, so that the boards can be inspected at the end of the line and packed in sealed cartons.

The picture above shows the length of the line and the individual stations where the application of the various coats is applied by rollers set to exact tolerance to ensure the correct amount is applied for each coat.
