Bjelin’s hardened wood flooring project with Charlottehaven has won the commercial category in the 2023 Installation Award by FLOOR Trends & Installation magazine. The project in Copenhagen, Denmark, saw the installation of Bjelin’s clickable, hardened oak flooring in 44 refurbished, fully equipped hotel apartments.
The FLOOR Trends & Installation Awards celebrate the most creative installers and interesting installations in both residential and commercial settings. Bjelin's large-scale project with Charlottehaven, filled with high-end Danish design, was selected for its unique set-up and solution.
All interior design decisions had been finalised when Charlottehaven chose the hardened oak flooring, and the deadline was tight. Despite this, installers praised the ease of installation with the leakproof mechanical floor locking system, 5G Dry that’s incorporated into the floors.
“We loved working on this project and are honoured to receive this award,” said Henrik Ottesen, General Manager of Bjelin Denmark. “This shows how easy our hardened wood flooring range is to work with and how superior our floor locking solution is.”
Charlottehaven valued quality work and despite the flooring decision being made late in the process, the installers carried out the installation perfectly within the confines of the refurbishment. Due to the nature of the hotel apartments, where families with children and pets stay for weeks or months at a time, the floors needed to be sturdy, long-lasting and waterproof. The installers managed all those expectations due to the hardened wood flooring’s advanced floor-locking.
Bjelin’s hardened wood floors are empowered by the ground-breaking Woodura technology, rendering the floors three times stronger, and the leakproof 5G Dry floor locking system, both developed by Bjelin's sister company Välinge Innovation. 5G Dry ensures a fast, easy, and durable installation without glue or nails with watertight joints preventing water from seeping through the panels and damaging the subfloor.
Bjelin looks forward to sharing more news as the company continues to grow its business.
