Quick-Step timber floors are engineered wood floors made up of three layers of solid wood, covered with a protective finish. Thanks to the careful selection of raw material and a perfect control of the moisture content of the wood during the manufacturing process, hardwood floors guarantee optimum stability and durability.
Depending on the timber floor you choose, this finishing layer may consists of:
A carefully selected, solid wood layer in a vast array of colours and structures. Most Quick-Step engineered wood floors have a face layer of 3 mm thick. The ‘Compact’ range has a face layer of 2,5 mm. The surface layer can be sanded and refinished.
The core layer is what makes a floor stable and durable. It absorbs stress and strain and keeps the floor stable in all conditions. The balance between the hardness and the flexibility of the core material is crucial in ensuring a smooth click and a strong connection. The core consists of Spruce or HDF.
A backing layer of spruce or pine veneer. In combination with the other layers, it prevents the floor from cupping or warping.
