Proparq timber flooring consists of a two-layer wooden surface: every single plank consists of a thick face layer of hardwood combined with tough marine-grade birchwood ply.

The face layer gives the product its final appearance, and so the timbers used must be carefully chosen and selected.
Throughout the Proparq production cycle, the face layer woods undergo several inspections by skilled staff, who reject all the material that does not meet set quality parameters.

The birchwood ply plays an extremely important functional role: this support consists of from five to nine layers of birchwood, each glued onto the layer below at right angles for a cross-grained arrangement; this structure balances the natural stresses within the material to give a stable, flexible flooring with resistance to twisting and crushing.

The hardwood face layer is glued to the birchwood ply at high pressure with extremely high-performance phenol adhesive developed to provide water-resistant bonds, compliant with the UNI EN ISO 204 CLASS D4 standards: the result is a perfect bond between the two timbers, making them virtually inseparable.

During shaping, the marine-grade birchwood ply is processed to form tongue-and-groove joints of micrometric precision on all four sides, so that there will be practically no space between planks in a well-laid floor.
This provides an extremely durable flooring of great beauty, and prevents liquids or dirt from penetrating into the wood, damaging it and generating a health hazard.

In this phase, cross-cuts are also made in the underside of each plank, giving it the flexibility needed to adapt to the laying surfaces, even where there are flaws in the screed or existing flooring, making the Proparq product perfectly flat and strikingly lovely to look at.

WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE?

The strength and benefits of Proparq multilayer flooring

Making intelligent, sustainable use of timber, using fine hardwoods in a controlled way to minimise the wastage of material, multilayer flooring is currently the most widely used, important type of timber flooring.
The special cross-grained gluing of the birchwood plies, compensating the natural stresses of the wood from layer to layer, makes this type of flooring durable and stable, with greater resistance to weather and damp, effectively combating warping, shrinkage and swelling.

Deformations of this kind are not only unsightly but also make continual sanding necessary to restore the floor’s flatness, considerably increasing maintenance costs and reducing the timber flooring’s lifetime.

Proparq timber flooring’s layered structure makes it possible to produce extremely stable large boards, with calibrated joints to guarantee perfect flatness across the various planks, allowing very swift installation and ensuring an even tougher result with gluing to the screed; what’s more, the flooring is so thin and stable that it can be installed over any type of underfloor heating system.

With these characteristics, the Proparq multilayered flooring is ready for use immediately, has a much longer lifetime and requires much less maintenance than an other types of wooden floor covering.
