 LVT and Laminates are made from plastics, thereby derived from fossil fuels. The manufacturing processes involved with  concrete and other flooring products damage our environment, through the energy used and pollution created during their production.

It may not need explaining, but to be absolutely clear, our English Oak and English Elm are both sourced within England comprising 28% of our range of timber.

Our European Oak from sustainably managed forests within Europe.

Our American White Ash, Douglas Fir, Appalachian Oak and Black Walnut are all sourced from the extensive forests of North America.

All of these countries have programmes of replanting and maintaining sustainable forests.

Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) and PEFC™ certification helps to ensure that forests are responsibly managed. Please contact us if you need any further information or to view the chain of custody certificates for our materials.

 

 Carbon Footprint

environmentally friendly douglas fir engineered flooring

Douglas Fir trees are fast growing and one of the world’s best timber producing species

 

Engineered wood flooring is THE sustainable flooring choice. For every 100 m2 of solid hardwood flooring we could produce we can create 300 m2 of engineered wood flooring.

Our engineered wooden floors all have a 5mm solid wood top-layer that can be sanded, the same amount of times as a traditional solid wood floor. This is the depth of the solid wood layer from the surface to the tongue and groove.

The substrate of our engineered floorboards is made up of layers of Birch Ply. Birch is a fast-growing tree, that grows abundantly and easily replaced, helping to reduce our carbon footprint even further.

The manufacture of engineered wood flooring uses less energy in production methods than any other building material.

 

Our Engineered Douglas Fir Flooring is a very sustainable choice of flooring.

 

To produce a tonne of cement it takes five times more energy, twenty four times more energy for a tonne of steel, and one hundred and twenty six times more for a tonne of aluminium.

Young trees also absorb more carbon dioxide than mature ones, so it is environmentally prudent to harvest older trees and then plant two saplings for every older tree felled.

All of our bespoke engineered wooden floors are made for 21st century installations and do not behave / move like solid wood flooring. This means that our engineered wooden floors can be used with underfloor heating and in kitchens / bathrooms where traditional solid wood flooring cannot.

 

Tree Planting

Every time we sell a floor we plant a tree. Buy one, get one tree.

 

From little acorns...mighty Oaks grow. We are very happy to share that we have recently started our very own forest. For every floor that we supply, we will be planting a tree of the same species with our carefully selected partner Tree Nation. Our aim is that our clients will match our commitment by planting a tree too.
