A WEALTH OF EXPERIENCE
Boen Bruk AS began manufacturing mosaic and solid wood flooring in 1953
progressing to multi-layer prefinished hardwood flooring in 1966. The knowledge
we acquired during those many years, is drawn on today when manufacturing our
multi-layered hardwood flooring which comes in a range of thicknesses from
10-23mm. Boens wood specialists and engineers have a vast knowledge of the
effect the climate has on wood. This important factor has played a significant
role in our choice of technology and techniques. Boen have themselves developed
and built many of the principal machines used in the production process. Boens'
own standards are on average considerably higher than those which are generally
practiced in the production of parquet.
PRODUCT STABILITY AGAINST HUMIDITY CHANGE
Wood continually expands and contracts in accordance with changes in humidity.
Many attempts have been made to hinder the movement of the hardwood strips, but
none have been totally successful. The thicker and wider the staves are, the
greater the variation experienced. Parquet incorporates a top layer of hardwood
which will inevitably be affected by humidity.
With this in mind, Boen has chosen a construction that has proven to be the best
with respect to sideways stability and flatness under differing humidity
conditions. Comparison tests show that Boen multi layer hardwood has very little
convex and concave movement. This is due to a combination of narrow strips,
correct composition of the blocking layer, a very good adhesion process and
continuous follow-up based on Boens Quality Control System.
All Boens multi layer hardwood flooring products are constructed in such a way
that they are stable when laid and it is a matter of course that our parquet can
be enjoyed by many generations to come.
