WOOD CHOICE 
The first step to make excellent wood floors is an accurate choice of wood. Our company pays great attention to raw material quality. We only select trees that are grown in European woods, supervised and protected by strict economical, environmental and social standards, in compliance with the most recent EU Timber Regulation no 995/2010. Protection of the environment according to international accredited standards is a guideline of our production system.

WOOD CUTTING 
The high quality of our raw material comes from the respect of the rhythms of nature. Trees must be cut at the right time. Only waiting for the right time to cut trees, we get stable wood which keeps its features unchanged over years. This is the reason why logs are cut straight in our factory, producing 8-mm thick lamellas. We start our productive process from the log to select its most suitable section and make unparalleled wood floors. Knowledge and skills behind these choices are handed down to new generations by expert craftsmen.
The second production phase after cutting, natural wood aging and stocking, considerably improve the performance of our wood floors. This is why our company employs dedicated ovens for drying.

LAMELLAS PREPARATION 
Lamellas are naturally seasoned and dried for about one year to reach the moisture average content of 7%, plus/minus 2%, as stated by the European rule. They are then stocked in our controlled temperature and moisture levels warehouse. When clients place orders, lamellas are used as a top layer in a sandwich that can be three or two layers, according to size and overall thickness of strip or board.

CHOICE OF LAMELLAS QUALITY
Lamellas are the constant subject of thorough controls. Indeed, during this particular step there is an accurate selection according to strict quality parameters, such as appearance, size, and correct calibration. All lamellas which are not in compliance with our requirements are sorted out. Our strict quality assurance is aimed to offer our clients the warranty of stable and lasting quality as well as accuracy and respect of dimensional standards.

LAYERS ASSEMBLY
Wood begins taking shape of strips, planks and boards according to their final use and destination. Our company is equipped with high precision automated assembly lines. Wood sandwich is first assembled fastening the layers with non-toxic glues and then hot-pressed to ensure glue grip and avoid possible detachments. Materials and procedures ensure durability and are in compliance with the EU standard that are aimed to protect consumer health through low level of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), formaldehyde and pentachlorophenol.

TONGUE & GROOVE
Tongue & groove joints are accurately worked in order to connect and lay down wood floor elements properly. Joints need to be carefully engineered in order to ensure an easy and at the same time clear-cut assembly. This prevents any split or irregularity between wood floor elements.
