FLOORING 101Everything you need to know about flooring is right here.
We guarantee that all Urbanfloor wood planks are of highest quality. Our engineered wood planks can be installed in all levels of the home and each collection comes with its own warranty. You can find out more about installation and warranty in our other 'Flooring 101' sections.
PLATINUM SHIELD UV7 COAT FINISH
Our Platinum Shield™ UV 7 coat finish with Aluminum Oxide Crystals technology provides the most durable finish available for hardwood floors.
The satin (low gloss) finish seals the wood surface to ensure that each Urbanfloor wood plank shows its true color and beauty. The strength and stability of our engineered flooring make care and maintenance easy, providing enjoyment for years to come.
The top hard wood layer measuring 1/8" is protected with 7 coats of UV cured, formaldehyde free, acrylic polyurethane and aluminum oxide crystals to ensure the durability of the wear layer. Our top layer is 1/8" solid wood with a vividly aesthetically pleasing and detailed hand distressed technique with hand-scraped edge and ends. Our smooth and rich flat-engineered wood flooring also has a 1/8" thick top layer with micro-bevel edge and ends.
8-PLY CROSS GRAIN CONSTRUCTION
There's strength in numbers. Every Urbanfloor™ hardwood floor is constructed with eight plies for optimum strength and durability. Each ply is laid cross-grain to those above and beneath it. With each ply reinforcing the next, and with the strongest resins bonding all layers together, the combined result is far stronger than a single solid piece of wood — warranted not to warp or buckle.
PRECISE MILLING TECHNOLOGY
State-of-the art milling technology is used to micro-bevel the edges and ends of each Urbanfloor wood plank. This technology ensures a satin smooth transition and tight fit between strips for a virtually seamless look. Especially in our Hand-scraped Collection, our wood masters scrape the ends and edges creatively.
