Quality flooring means different things to different people. For some, it’s all about comfort and design, others may focus on the origin and composition of products or environmental sustainability, while fire resistance, resilience, and underfoot safety are uppermost in other people’s minds - whatever your metric for constituting quality, there’s a flooring solution to suit.
Contrary to popular belief, timber grading does not necessarily indicate inherent quality, it simply categorises naturally occurring quirks, such as knots, sapwood and pin holes, which enhance the charm of hardwood floors.
All Flooring Online’s timber flooring is ABCD grade, combining wood types containing few flaws with more rustic, character filled timber to produce beautiful flooring with strong visual appeal.
Comfort, Design and Durability
For high quality boards built to maximise resilience and stand the test of time, each of our engineered timber products, much like a Sara Lee strudel, are expertly constructed from multiple layers.
A true innovation in hard floors, Flooring Online’s range of Hybrid flooring boasts amazing wood print decors and extra matte finish, for the most realistic wood-look engineered floorboards on the market.
Along with pre-attached underlay for dampening acoustics and improving underfoot comfort, hard-working Hybrid is also impact and water resistant for added durability in busy households.
Mimicking the look, feel and design of natural hardwood, Vinyl and Laminate planks provide an affordable DIY alternative with a host of benefits. Both are available in a range of decors to suit any interior and, given a free weekend and some basic instruction, are simple for the home handyperson to install. Vinyl can also be wet mopped making it an especially useful choice for wet areas such as laundries and bathrooms.
All Flooring Online’s timber flooring is manufactured using sustainably sourced and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified timber. From home-grown Australian Blackbutt and Spotted Gum, or Engineered Oak products from Europe, FSC certified flooring helps us to make better choices for the planet – and that can only be a good thing.
Global GreenTagCertTM is a leading, third-party verification system providing independent, evidence-based product research on sustainable product solutions. Requiring complete transparency from manufacturers, GreenRate ecolabels assess how and from what each product is made, rating their health and environmental impacts.
So, suffice it to say, when Flooring Online’s Aqua-Tuf, a rigid floating floor product, with all the good looks of timber but the performance and durability of 100% waterproof vinyl, achieved Global Green Tag certification, we were very proud. Rated for health and ecotoxicity, the Global Green tag label also examines corporate social responsibility and ensures our products are certified fit for purpose.
Backed by a reputation for quality service and innovative flooring solutions, Flooring Online has been a trusted supplier to interior designers and architects for over two decades, with a 25 Year surface and structural warranty on all our Timber and Hybrid flooring for added peace of mind.
