Wide planks of Hardened Wood 3.0

Many times stronger and more water resistant than traditional flooring

Our Scandinavian-designed hardened wood floors are built to withstand the test of time with a unique blend of revolutionary technologies. The wood for our super-strong and dent-resistant floors is sourced ethically and responsibly from FSC-certified European forests.

Hardened wood range 3.0

Our latest hardened wood range is empowered by several ground-breaking technologies developed in-house by sister company Välinge Innovation, creating an exceptionally durable and long-lasting experience. The combination of the surface technology Woodura, the moisture-resistant Välinge Compositek Core, and the leakproof 5G Dry floor locking system ensure a strong and water-resistant floor that can last for generations.  

The hardened wood collection is available in multiple colours, sizes and surface treatments, suitable for both residential and commercial use.

Strong and durable with Woodura®

Our hardened wood floors feature the patented Woodura technology that makes it possible to compress and harden wood, producing floors that are three times stronger than traditional wood floors. The Woodura solution is an improvement on the technology used for the manufacturing of real wood floors – and it’s as revolutionary as the 3-layer parquet was in 1944.

The hardening process provides a much stronger and dent- and water-resistant surface that never needs to be sanded. Using thinner surface layers in the production also enables us to create ten times more flooring from the same amount of timber. This makes the floor cost-effective while minimising the environmental impact.

A fast, easy, and durable installation

When developing our hardened wood floors 3.0, simplicity and everyday life were important keywords. We therefore incorporated an updated version of the easy-to-install floor locking system, 5G.

With the new, leakproof 5G Dry installation system, you still just click the floor panels together without glue, nails or sealants – but watertight joints also prevent water from seeping through the seams and damaging the sub-floor. An installation has never been easier and more durable!

5G® Dry™

5G Dry is the latest innovation in floor locking technology. This unique solution was developed by our sister company Välinge Innovation, also known as the inventor of the first mechanical locking system for flooring.

5G Dry was developed to prevent water from seeping through the seams of the floor panels.

Thoroughly tested

The 5G Dry locking system has been developed to pass the ISO Topical Moisture test. During this test, the floor and joints are exposed to water for 24 hours and then 24 hours of drying. The test is often used to assess the behaviour of flooring installations exposed to water and spills.

Our hardened wood floors 3.0 meet all the requirements of ISO 4760.

Easy to install

It’s never been easier to install a water-resistant wooden floor.

With 5G Dry, you don't need any extra sealant or glue. The installation of a high-quality click floor saves both time and money. And in the unlikely event that you grow tired of the floor, it can easily be uninstalled and moved to another room.

For our hardened wood floors, we offer three surface treatments that provide different visual and tactile experiences, each serving a unique purpose.

Hardened wood floors with a brushed surface

Wide planks in our hardened wood range 3.0 are available in a long-awaited brushed surface that highlights the oak's structure in an elegant way. The brushed surface provides an exquisite look and is reminiscent of the structure of a natural, oiled wooden floor – but with the advantages of the lacquer, which makes the floors easier to clean and maintain.

Match the colour of the floor with the walls and textiles or create contrasts and make the home more rustic with natural grain and brushed planks.

We recommend brushed lacquered surface in residential applications.

Our tough pro matt lacquer

The new pro matt lacquer surface treatment is our best version yet, making these floors extremely durable. They are ideal for busy spaces within hotels, shops, offices and cafés – or a heavily trafficked area of your home. The pro matt lacquer finish makes the floor easy to maintain while protecting it from stains. 

These hardened wood floors are available in many different designs. Create space with our extra-large XXL planks or an intricate pattern with smaller panels. Our sophisticated range of colours suits many interior design styles, so you can add a modern touch, an air of elegance or create a calm and soothing atmosphere.

We recommend the pro matt lacquer surface for heavy-duty residential and commercial areas.

A natural feeling with hard wax oil

Our wide planks with a hard wax oil surface have a natural structure that provides a wonderful feeling of wood. These floors should be oiled regularly to maintain their character. Should a scratch appear, this can usually be fixed with oil. 

Due to the maintenance required, we recommend oiled wooden floors in bedrooms and living rooms where there is less heavy traffic. The floors work equally well in busier areas but will require more care in those spaces.

A size for everyone

Our wide XL and XXL planks are a popular choice. What’s unique about hardened wood floors is that although wide planks are usually thick, the Woodura technology allows the floors to be wide while only 11 mm thin. This simplifies both the handling and the installation.

In 2023, we also introduced Small, Medium and Large sizes. These smaller panels, which are 9,2 mm thin, are easier to transport and provide more creative freedom. Perhaps you want to enhance the sense of space with XXL planks in a living room but choose smaller panels in a bedroom.

Different types of wood

We use FSC-certified wood sourced from the lush forests of Croatia to create our hardened wood floors. Our range is available in oak, ash and our newly released walnut.

Most of our floors are made from oak since this grows in abundance close to our flooring factories in Croatia. From these forests, we also source ash, which has an attractive grain and typically a lighter and warmer colour. There is an even more distinct grain in walnut, but the colour of these floors tends to be richer and darker. 

A sustainable company

Our production is based on simple, yet wise, principles which ensures the sustainability of our business:

  • We maximise the use of all raw material and every log. With our production systems, we can calculate the perfect way to cut the log in order to get the various sizes and shapes. Any wood that cannot be used as a surface layer for a product, is used as filling material. Nothing goes to waste.

  • Any leftover material in the production can be recycled and turned into filling material in new floorings. Thus, minimising the amount of waste whilst the amount of flooring per cubic metre of raw material is maximised.

  • We collect our raw material from responsibly managed forests where the wood is processed locally. This means that transports will be shorter and ensures local job opportunities.

Wood harvested in sustainably managed forests
The timber for the hardened wooden floors comes from forests that have been managed and cared for in a sustainable manner based on a very strict ecological, social and economic framework.

Underfloor heating
Our floors work very well with a range of underfloor heating systems. For installation with underfloor heating, foil with age-resistant vapour barrier must be used, see our installation instructions for more information. 

Cutting Instructions
We recommend cutting tools with cemented carbide inserts when cutting the floorboards.

Floors of Hardened Wood are suitable for almost all rooms in homes or commercial areas that are exposed to normal wear (such as offices, waiting rooms or shops). Floors made from Hardened Wood are not suitable for wet or damp rooms (eg. bathrooms or saunas).

The subfloor must be dry, even and firm. Uneveness larger than 3 millimeters per inbound meter and 2 millimeters per additional meter must be smoothed out. The installation instructions, which accompany the product, must be followed.

Maximize the floor space from each log

Hardened Wood is also a sustainable way to utilize the raw wood material at the maximum. By using thin layers of wood instead of thick, solid, planks, a significantly larger amount of final product can be made from every cubic meter of wood.
