2. How many types of hardwood flooring are there?

  • 1. Solid Flooring : All real wood profiled into one single piece of wood flooring
  • 2. Compound Solid Flooring : Compound Solid flooring is a 3 or 4 layers cross-lamination of real solid wood. The product is designed to ensure maximum stability, protection against insects while still maintaining the natural feel of real solid wood.
  • 3. Engineered Flooring : Engineered flooring is manufactured from a layer of real hardwood wood glued on to a layer of plywood. It is another alternative for hardwood flooring.
3. Why Compound Solid flooring?
  • 1. Our wood is impregnated with a termite and insect protection solution
  • 2. We provide warranty of 15 years for delamination and damage from termite (please see Product Warranty and User Manual)
  • 3. Compound Solid comprises of three layers of solid timber constructed in a CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) form – this minimizes the expansion/ contraction of the floor plank
4. Compound solid flooring vs. Engineered flooring

We used our deep knowledge and understanding of the wood and the unmet needs from the products available in the Thai and other regional markets to design and manufacture Compound Solid Flooring.

Compound Solid Flooring is made from cross lamination a 3-layer hardwood together, bounded by water resistance glue. This construction enhanced the stability of the product, while Core and Balancer layers have been impregnated to protect the wood from termites and other insects. Overall, this product is human and environmentally friendly – it also allows us to optimize the usage of the natural product.

On the other hand, Engineered Flooring is produced from layer of hardwood stick onto another layer of plywood. The plywood is often made from softwood such as Eucalyptus, Birch, Hevea, etc. and is susceptible to termites and insects. Very often the glue that is used to manufacture the plywood will consist of formaldehyde (usually in low level).
