Success by quality | Introducing 2-layer oak flooring with Ecoboard

Oct 06, 2022

Our 2-layer oak flooring construction on Ecoboard >> proves to be high quality according to tests performed at one of Europe's most respected wood products laboratories EPH-Dresden >>.

Although it is new to the UK wood flooring market, we developed one of our most successful innovations oak floorboards on an eco-friendly Ecoboard base 15 years ago. Due to the product's attractive price-quality ratio, it immediately became a bestseller in Europe.

Ecoboard has been laid on more than 1.5 million square meters of floor space, demonstrating its recognition by our customers as well as our partners, including architects, developers, and designers. We do, however, continue to monitor the quality of the construction to ensure that all parameters that measure the floor's strength and durability remain above industry standards.

Recent floorboard tests were conducted in one of Europe's most respected wood products laboratories EPH-Dresden >>.. It has been proven that 2-layer oak and Ecoboard construction is still a premium quality product. Therefore, we continue to offer it to our clients with full confidence.

 

Tests confirm that the construction is highly resistant to moisture and temperature fluctuations

 

2-layer oak with Ecoboard base flooring >>  pass the impressive peel test, proving their strength and durability:

  • Floorboards were immersed in 20°C water for six hours before being removed.
  • It was then stored in a climate chamber at 23°C and 50% relative humidity for 24 hours and 48 hours.
  • Then it was dried at 60 °C for 8 hours.
  • Finally, the product was dried for 16 hours at 80 °C.
  • No evidence of delamination was found after the tests: neither between the Ecoboard and the oak layer (interlayer) nor in other parts of the floorboard structure. Despite extreme tests, the construction remained unchanged. The achievement was recognized with a quality certificate.

Because such extreme conditions do not occur in real life, we confidently state that this 2-layer flooring will last a lifetime.

 

 

Sustainable, eco-friendly floorboards ideal for underfloor heating

 

The engineered oak on Ecoboard is perfect for underfloor heating. Due to its moisture resistance, wooden floors can be laid confidently in the kitchen, bathroom, and other rooms where tiles were traditionally installed.

 Testing shows that oak and Ecoboard flooring has a thermal resistance of 0.13 W/m*K. As a result, such a floor provides unparalleled comfort when installed with an underfloor heating system.

We always remind our customers to ask what materials are used to make the floorboards. In the process of making the attachments to the base layer of the oak, Ecowood uses formaldehyde-free polyurethane glue to attach the top layer of oak to the base layer. A similar safe glue is used in the production of the Ecoboard base.

Formaldehyde emissions were also studied in a German laboratory. The result: 2-layer oak and Ecoboard construction meets the highest European E1 class standard. Formaldehyde emission was below the limit of detection (Limit Of Detection).

 Identifying the glue used for floorboard construction is important because harmful glues can evaporate while heating, putting your health at risk.

We popped down to the showroom last year and ordered 2-layer Ivory, brushed character planks which we saw online. It was worth the journey as the planks are as beautiful as we thought. We also wanted flooring that the builder would enjoy working with as there is a lot of floor. Fircim Bici (our builder) was really impressed with the quality. But most of all, we have lived with this floor for five months and had many comments as it how beautiful it is.
Our experience at Indomo Ltd has always been positive with Ecohardwood. Their flooring offers an ideal balance between quality and price while being eco-friendly, which is perfect for our clients. The prompt arrival of samples and friendly customer service made the experience smooth. We have specified their flooring throughout the spaces of our project, including the kitchen, as we trust its durability and versatility.
