NWFA adds to its Engineered Refinishable Program
St. Louis, Mo.—The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) has added 13 wood flooring manufacturers to its Engineered Refinishable program since the program launched early last fall. According to the association, the program is designed to identify engineered wood flooring products with wear layers thick enough to be sanded and finished. The Engineered Refinishable program is voluntary and meets European standards.
Manufacturers that have completed the product evaluation process to be included in the program include:
- Appalachian wood
- Breezewood floors
- Carlisle wide plank floors
- Lauzon distinctive hardwood floors throughout
- Maxwell/Ouachita hardwood floors
- Wood from Central Tennessee
- Mullican floors
- Pacific hardwood
- Reliance hardwood floors
- Saroyan hardwood
- Somerset hardwood floors throughout
- Superior floors
- Wickham hardwood floors
“The certified refinishable logo is an easy way to give an architect, designer or consumer confidence that a engineered wood flooring product has been designed to stand the test of time, change its appearance and be refreshed,” said Michael Martin , president and CEO , NWFA. “We are encouraged by the sheer number of early adopters and how quickly the repaintable logo is making its way to market.”
To qualify for the certified refinishable logo, engineered wood flooring products must meet minimum wear layer requirements. These vary depending on the product. Unfinished smooth products must have a minimum wear layer of 4/32 inch or 3.2 millimeters. Factory finished smooth products must have a minimum wear layer of 3/32 inch or 2.5 millimeters. Sculpted and distressed products must have a minimum wear layer of 3/32 inch or 2.5 millimeters.
