Multiply Core Construction


Why Plywood Core?

  • When multiple pieces of plywood are layered on top of each other (with grains going different directions) it creates an engineered balance. This balance prevents expansion, contraction, bowing, twisting and warping. This is the reason why engineered flooring can be installed below grade level's (in basements).
  • The more ply's that are added, the more stable the plank is going to be.
  • The decorative layer on this construction provides the ability to refinish the floor. The flooring can be professionally re-screened an unlimited amount of times allowing it to last generations.

Installation Profile Details


Tongue and Groove Profile

Our tongue and groove profile is truly innovative so you can be confident that once your flooring is installed, it is going to last for generations. Our highly experienced team of flooring manufacturing engineers have developed a T&G construction that makes installation easy to accomplish whether you want to glue, float, nail or staple the floor in place.


Installation Made Easy

  • The nail pocket allows space for a staple or nail to be used without interfering with the way each plank interlocks with each other.
  • Our innovative adhesive pockets allow more glue to be applied between the tongue and groove which creates a stronger bond to the planks and to the sub floor.

The Industries Best Finish (2X MORE WATER & WEAR RESISTANT)

Environmental Focus

Preserving our natural resources and environment are important at From The Forest. The raw materials used for the flooring products are sourced only from managed forests in the United States and our wear resistant, ceramic top coats, and stains are water-based (zero VOC) and UV cured to protect air quality and our adhesives meet the highest standards for air emissions. Our lumber is purchased from suppliers within 500 miles of our factory that have active reforestation programs and share our environmental responsibility with FSC certifications. Only a portion of mature trees are cut, leaving other mature trees for seeding purposes, and smaller trees for future logging. We are committed to sustainable forest management and we encourage the use of wood as an environmentally acceptable and renewable material. We have not and will not purchase lumber from any supplier involved in improper practices.

  • 100% of raw materials are sourced only from FSC certified sawmills and strict chain of custody standards are in place for all raw materials
  • All raw materials are sourced within 500 miles of our factory
  • Formaldehyde free adhesives used in the construction of the flooring - 100% CARB Compliance with Zero VOC’s
  • All topcoats are WearMax DWR and protect air quality
  • All products are GREENGUARD certified

Why Wood & Why Engineered?


  • WHY WOOD?
  • WHY ENGINEERED?

Nothing beats the beauty of real woodReal wood products portray a sense of elegance and class that does not go unnoticed. Imitation products will never be able to compare.

Every plank is unique -  Wood is a product of nature, and because of this, it allows for a new unique characteristic on every plank. The unique nature of wood is what makes it so sophisticated.

Environment – Wood products are renewable and substantially better for the environment over all other materials that are used to imitate the look of wood.

Safety Scientific Research has shown that Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) products have cytotoxicity/allergenicity components and are combustible. Cytotoxicity/ allergenicity components can create health issues and cause damage to living tissue in humans and pets through exposure. Combustible building products may release smoke, toxic gasses and other chemical compounds when exposed to elevated temperatures. This may have a hazardous impact on building occupants, neighborhoods, first responders and the environment. Wood products are natural and do not have any of these risk factors associated.

Durability – Constructed to have enhanced stability and more resistance to daily wear, tear and buckling and offers an extremely durable coating capable of withstanding treatment.

Resistance - Dimensionally very stable preventing the wood from expanding and contracting during fluctuations of humidity and temperature.

Radiant Heat Compatibility -  Majority of engineered hardwood offerings can be installed over radiant heat.

Installation Capability -  Can be installed on all grade levels in a variety of different ways including nailing, gluing, floating and stapling. Many handy homeowners could even do it themselves!

360° Core (EXTREME DENT RESISTANCE)

  • WHY 360° CORE?
  • WHAT IS IT?

EXTREME DURABILITY AND DENT RESISTANCE

From the Forest developed an engineered top layer veneer that is protected by eight layers of durable top coat. WearMax™ finish combined with an impact resistant 360° high-density fiberboard that is composed of the most dense & durable woods, provide a superior performance core for maximum durability and strength. This combination makes the flooring two times more resistant to wear from long term use.

WARRANTY PROTECTED

From the Forest’s superior engineered hardwood collections are backed with a Limited Lifetime Residential Warranty and a 10 Year Light Commercial Warranty for peace of mind.

360° ENGINEERED HARDWOOD CONSTRUCTION

The veneer is so thin because that is how much we trust the core!

WHAT IS 360 ° CORE?

Core 360° High Density Fiberboard (HDF) is the "middle layer" located between the top and bottom veneers. This "key ingredient" is a big contributor to the success and performance of From The Forest products. It is the densest core you can find and out performs plywood.

ECO-CERTIFIED

Core 360° High Density Fiberboard (HDF) is made with 100% pre-consumer recycled forest content, composed of wood fiber extracted from chips and pulped wood waste of the densest & durable woods for superior performance. The multi-directional wood fibers and consistent density throughout the core ensure flooring boards will lay flat.

SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE

Core 360° High Density Fiberboard (HDF) has a density consistent at 57 pounds per cubic foot with a swelling coefficient of 6%. In comparison, plywood core has a density consistent at 42 pounds per cubic foot with a swelling coefficient of 18% - 20%. Designed to absorb impact, engineered wood floors with Core 360° are two times more resistant to dent, wear, and moisture than any other hardwood floor.

CARB COMPLIANT

Core 360° High Density Fiberboard (HDF) Core is 93120 Phase 2 CARB Compliant. No Added Formaldehyde.
