LAMINATE FLOORING COLLECTION OVERVIEW
Frequently asked questions about laminate flooring
What is laminate flooring made of?
A laminate flooring has as its main component an HDF board, a so-called high-density wood fibre board as its carrier. This HDF board consists of approx. 90 % wood fibres, which are glued together with an environmentally friendly glue resin and then compressed to a high density. The decorative side consists of 2-3 layers of functional paper impregnated with a melamine resin. In order to keep the laminate panels dimensionally stable, a so-called backing paper is applied to the back of the panels.
Why must a vapor barrier be used?
For ready-to-lay mineral substrates such as screed or concrete under unfavorable climatic conditions Moisture can rise and cause swelling in the joint area. A vapor barrier protects the carrier plate against rising damp from the underground. The vapor barrier, usually a 2 mm polyethylene film, is placed below the impact sound insulation on the subsurface, overlapped by 20 cm and pulled upwards on the walls.
Must there be used an underlay mat?
An underlay mat forms the interfaces to the underground and takes over important functions, like the compensation of punctual bumps. They protect the entire system in daily use and and can protect against rising damp, as well as reduce walking and footstep noise.
Is a laminate floor suitable for allergy sufferers?
Laminate flooring is manufactured without pesticides, organochlorine compounds and harmful heavy metals. Due to the melamine resin overlay, the surface is closed and provides house dust mites and microorganisms only a small breeding ground. A laminate floor is due to the closed surface and its good cleaning and care properties suitable for allergy sufferers.
