Laminate, parquet & Co.

Strong, safe and demanding in processing

When renovating or building, floor coverings are the basis for the desired living and room feeling in interior design. Depending on the material and colour, every room looks different. But not only the look determines nowadays the choice of the floor covering. Hygiene, resilience and the individual requirements for the use of space are playing an ever-increasing role in the choice of floor covering.  However, installation and quality are also aspects that are increasingly becoming more important when it comes to choosing the right floor for the end consumer.

As diverse as the demands on the end product are the challenges for floor producers in the industrial processing of the basic materials required for this, such as wood, plastics or composite materials.


Laminate, LVT, SPC & parquet processing

Laminate floors consist of different materials (HDF, MDF, decorative paper and corresponding protective coating of melamine resin), which are joined together in layers by hot pressing. Laminate is generally produced in large-format panels, which are then further processed accordingly. Although laminate has similar properties to solid wood, the processing of this laminated material is completely different and no less demanding.

Vinyl floor coverings also known as SPC, WPC or LVT are flooring materials consisting mainly of a thick plastic layer and correspondingly printed decorative material. Due to their high flexibility and extreme load-bearing capacity, they are mainly used in gyms, bathrooms or in the house or garage sector. Due to the high plastic content, these floors are extremely resilient, but it is precisely this material property that brings its special features to production.

Floorboards are cut completely from a solid piece of wood and consist exclusively of a, usually very high-quality and specially treated wood. Parquet floors consist either of solid wood panels or of fine wood veneer glued to a carrier layer of another type of wood. Both types of solid wood floors have their own special properties and, above all, are highly resilient and can be used over a very long period of time. Parquet or plank floors require tongue and groove joints to be installed and are either floating or firmly glued to the floor.
