10 GOOD REASONS TO CHOOSE TIMBERWISE

THE BEST WOOD

Timberwise parquets are made of high-quality European oak and ash, as well as Austrian or Siberian larch.
READ MORE...

The best possible raw material is used in the manufacture of the Timberwise parquets. Finnish spruce and birch plywood is used in the base and middle layer structures. The oak, ash and Austrian larch used in the surface materials come from Europe, and mainly from Central Europe. Our quality standards are strict. That’s why we select and acquire all our wood raw material ourselves. The wood enters our factory as rough plank, and its journey to becoming the world’s best plank parquet begins with a careful sorting and quality inspection.

CLEAN AND SAFE INDOOR AIR

Our parquets are manufactured entirely without the use of formaldehyde-containing adhesives – as the first in the world.
READ MORE...

The floor is one of the largest surfaces in the home. Therefore, it’s important that the parquet does not emit chemicals harmful to people, such as formaldehyde, into the indoor air. Formaldehyde is known to irritate the eyes and respiratory passages even in small quantities. It is also suspected to be connected to asthma and allergic symptoms. Timberwise was the first parquet manufacturer in the world to entirely give up the use of formaldehyde-containing adhesives in their products. We are also the only parquet manufacturer in Finland to have the Allergy Label of Finland’s Allergy and Asthma Federation.

ECOLOGICAL AND ETHICAL

We only use PEFC-certified wood from the EU area.
READ MORE...

We here at Timberwise value biodiversity and follow the principles of sustainable development and ethical business behaviour. Our raw material comes from European PEFC and FSC-certified forests. Our products comply with all the EU directives and the most demanding emission and adhesive joint classes in the world. We also strive to utilise the waste and by-products created in our production. For instance, the sawdust produced as a by-product of sawing is used to heat our drying kilns. Part of our electricity is produced by our own solar panels.

STABLE STRUCTURE

Our unique birch plywood 3-layer structure guarantees a significantly sturdier floor, which is also more even and durable.
READ MORE...

Traditional parquets have a 2-layer structure in which softwood plywood is used under the surface layer. Such a parquet is prone to moving and cracking due to changes in temperature and humidity. The Timberwise parquets have a 3-layer structure: in addition to the surface and middle layers, there is a third layer, a counter balance veneer. This significantly prevents the parquet from ‘moving’, i.e., reacting to changes in humidity and temperature. In addition, we use a 9-mm-thick Finnish birch marine plywood as the middle layer. It’s more rigid, and provides a more effective insulation against sound and moisture, which makes the Timberwise parquet sturdier and more durable.

LASTS AND LASTS

The glued joints in the Timberwise parquets endure even the most extreme conditions.
READ MORE...

As wood is a living material, its volume changes with changes in air humidity and temperature. Therefore, the glued joints of the parquet must endure even highly variable conditions. The glued joints of Timberwise parquets are regularly tested based on the JAS2 standard, which is the most demanding test in its field. During the test, the test specimens are immersed in boiling water for several hours. The glued joints of Timberwise products hold, and the surfaces do not delaminate. Therefore, our products are perfectly suited for countries where changes in temperature and air humidity vary seasonally.

A PARQUET IS JUDGED BY ITS SURFACE

The diverse colour and surface treatments give Timberwise parquets character and durability.
READ MORE...

Timberwise is the pioneer in surface and colour treatments. Even though we do not use endangered, naturally dark species of wood, we still offer our customers dark-toned flooring by tinting oak, ash and larch ethically and ecologically. The natural qualities of the wood species can also be accentuated with various surface treatments. The Timberwise parquets are delivered sanded or brushed, and finished with UV-hardened wax oils, lacquers or natural oils.

EASY TO INSTALL

The Timberwise parquet is the market’s easiest and quickest to install.
READ MORE...

Timberwise parquets are available in two options: with WiseLoc locking tongue and groove, and with a traditional, glued tongue and groove. The WiseLoc locking tongue and groove flooring saves time and installation costs, as it can be installed alone. The end tongue and groove is pressed down, and, without bending the boards, it will automatically lock in place thanks to a spring structure. The traditional glued tongue and groove is recommended to be used in locations such as holiday houses, where the air humidity is 65–70%, or where the finishing is done on location.

SUITABLE FOR UNDERFLOOR HEATING

Our parquets can safely be installed on an underfloor heating system.
READ MORE...

A wooden floor is comfortable and pleasant when installed on an underfloor heating system. The Timberwise oak and ash parquets are well suited for use with underfloor heating. The larch parquet can also be installed on underfloor heating in locations, where surrounding conditions are carefully taken into account. Our parquets are best in locations where the room temperature and air humidity are even (18–24 °C / 30–65%) and the temperature does not vary more than 2 °C. The underfloor heating should be evenly distributed over the whole floor area. Please follow our installation instructions to ensure the best possible result.
