Wooden flooring is highly sought after for many businesses, but it isn’t always possible to have solid wood flooring in every building. Engineered wood flooring is an excellent alternative to solid wood floors for any commercial space. It is incredibly versatile, making it ideal for locations where real wood flooring isn’t suitable, such as conservatories, basements and areas with underfloor heating. If you are considering wooden flooring for a shop, office, gym, restaurant or other business premises, engineered wood flooring could be the answer you have been looking for.
Engineered wood flooring is created using multiple layers of wood that are bonded together and topped with a layer of solid wood flooring. It is extremely popular for commercial use today because it is able to withstand much more than traditional real wood flooring. Walnut engineered wood flooring is a common choice, while oak wood flooring is also used a lot for workshop flooring and other areas requiring durability and hardwearing floors.
The walnut or oak top layer is bonded together with layers of wood which work as a base layer underneath. The top layer, known as the wear layer, must be over 2mm thick for engineered wood flooring, as less than this is considered veneered wood flooring.
