Packed with technologies by sister company Välinge Innovation, such as Woodura®, Bjelin¡¯s commercial hardened wood floors are three times stronger than engineered wood floors, while more dent- and water-resistant, said the company. In combination with the class 33 commercial matt finish ¨C Bjelin¡¯s toughest to date ¨C these floors are ideal for heavy-traffic areas such as hotels, offices, restaurants and shops.
Additionally, the company stated, the leakproof 5G® DryTM floor-locking system ensures a quick and waterproof installation without glue or nails, with watertight joints preventing water from seeping through the seams and damaging the subfloor.
The range is made with responsibly sourced FSC-certified wood, and the high-quality production process enables ten times more flooring to be produced from each log. Bjelin looks forward to sharing more news as the company continues to grow its business.
