Is Engineered Hardwood Flooring Resistant to Underfloor Heating?

Engineered Hardwood Flooring Is the heat resistant?

Underfloor heating is a very popular type of heating in our country. Hot water pipes pass through the concrete floor to heat the surrounding environment. However, if there is no correct coating on the concrete floor, this will lead to heat loss.

Engineered hardwood flooring, which will be used in underfloor heating areas, must have heat transfer properties. This, however, depends only on the fact that trees used in engineered hardwood flooring have the right properties. 

The Okouma tree of African origin, which we use in the lower layers of the engineered hardwood flooring we produce as Ligno parquet, is the most suitable and durable wood type for ground floors with porous and hard structure. In addition, we will apply parquet flooring, about 2 mm on concrete we use natural tree fungus in its thickness. Plastic floor covering is suitable for laminate parquet, but it is not a healthy and suitable product for engineered hardwood flooring.

Since engineered hardwood flooring is a 100% natural product, the relationship with the concrete floor must be completely cut off and at the same time the parquet floor must be air-conditioned. The only product that provides this correctly is the natural tree fungus. Because this material occurs in the tree bark in the natural environment and the tree protects it from moisture, cold and other external influences. Likewise, the engineered hardwood flooring we produce are protected from moisture, cold, hot effects and provide a long life.

The damage caused by the high heat from the floor to the engineered hardwood flooring can be prevented by the protective effect of the tree fungus we use on the floor and by the porous and hard structure of the Okume tree which we use in its lower layers. For this reason, engineered hardwood flooring which we produce as Ligno Parquet can be used for many years against ground heating without deterioration of form.
