WOODCUT ensures quality and consistency during the manufacturing process. It all begins with sourcing the best materials from various parts of Europe. These materials are sent to our manufacturing plant to be sawn cut into veneers. These veneers are hand selected and sorted in terms of grade, tone and grain structure.
The structure and machining of the board plays a big role in the performance of our WOODCUT premium timber flooring products. The tongue and groove must be machined tight enough to hold the boards in place to ensure capability for both floating and direct stick installations.
Using the correct core material will also determine whether the boards are suitable for certain situations. All our products are manufactured using either poplar or a marine grade ply substrate, with a few exceptions such as an oak and hardwood ply combination. The European machinery used by WOODCUT in manufacturing our products allows for strip flooring, chevron flooring, herringbone flooring and varying board widths.
WOODCUT uses premium quality glues and adhesives during the manufacturing process. These adhesives make our floors perfect for a heated slab installation and ensure low formaldehyde emissions, especially when heated on a hydronic slab.
Our 15mm poplar-core products use what’s called finger slate construction. These small gaps in our boards allow for circulation into the boards which prevents cupping, warping and gapping.
The grade and grain structure of the boards will determine how the finishes and treatments react to each board. Certain boards from certain regions cannot absorb some stains as well as other boards, meaning that our quality control team must determine which boards are used for which products. Certain grades also react differently to different stains and treatments, which is another reason why our boards are sorted by grade before the manufacturing process.
Upon request, FSC(R) Certification can be obtained before making a purchase so our clients can receive proof of sustainable timber logging and treatment.
