Laminate flooring comes under the category of sustainable floor coverings and quite rightly, as it is made of wood and wood fibres.
Our wineo laminate flooring is 90% wood, and it is also very important to us that the wood comes from local, sustainably managed forests, something that is demonstrated by the PEFC-mark on all our laminate floors. The PEFC is committed to promoting sustainable forestry and regularly checks this under strict guidelines.
In addition, a large proportion of the wood that is used to manufacture our laminate flooring comes from the sawmill industry including the incorporation of their their wood waste.
Our laminate is “100% made in Germany” with all the the components required originating from Germany close to our production site in Augustdorf (North Rhine-Westphalia) – which means short transportation distances.
wineo laminate floors are also notable for their particularly high resilience. This is ensured by a special, multi-layer structure.
The different components can be roughly divided into three layers:
But is melamine resin completely safe?
Yes! The melamine resin we use is water based and therefore free of organic solvents. After curing, it creates a surface that is extremely resistant to chemicals, water, organic solvents, light and temperature. The formaldehyde contained in the melamine resin is bound inseparably into the resin structure during curing and therefore cannot escape into the ambient air.
