Environmental & Latest Anti-Scratching Coating

We constantly strive to further enforce our commitment to the environment and to create operations that are sustainable in the long term in order to benefit both present and future generations.

Consumers are assured that product carries the FSC® label. Which means the only timbers used come from forests that are managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations. The forest of origin is carefully audited and controlled in compliance with parameters and rules fixed by the Forest Stewardship Council A.C.

FSC

FSC® respects the domestic laws and international agreements in the field of forest management to protect workers’ rights and the wellbeing of local communities. It also supports better management and monitoring of forests to safeguard their future, as well as reduce negative environmental impacts.

An audited ‘Chain of Custody’ process from forest to mill to end supplier is maintained to guarantee the integrity of the forest products. Product flyers that display the green FSC® logo indicate that those products are available as FSC®

Further to this, this manufactured flooring is genuine aged French Oak from northern France which we have on file certificate of origin.

The formulae given in the Building Code of Austalia have been shown to give inaccuracies in determination of Group Number for certain materials. Due to this AWTA Product Testing no longer reports Group Numbers. The formulae for calculation of Group Number is available from the website of the Australian Building Codes Board. Group Number calculation based on the results described in this report can be undertaken at the clients discretion

 

Tests were conducted with a wire grid placed over the sample during testing. This was done to contain intumescing sample within the sample holder

 

These test results relate only to the behaviour of the product under the conditions of the test, they are not intended to be the sole criterion for the assessment of performance under real fire conditions

Australian Logging Laws

European Timber Floors complies with the new logging laws coming in to effect November 2014.

Australia has put in place a law called the Illegal Logging Prohibition Act 2012 (the Act).
The Act promotes the purchase and sale of legally logged timber products in Australia.

The Act: prohibits the import of illegally logged timber and timber products; and prohibits the processing of Australian grown raw logs that have been illegally logged. These prohibitions are now in force in Australia—this means that penalties apply to Australian importers who have knowledge, intention or are reckless when importing an illegally logged timber or timber product.

The Illegal Logging Prohibition Amendment Regulation 2013 (the Regulation) was developed with stakeholders and tabled in the
Australian Parliament on 3 June 2013. The Regulation sets out what is required of Australian importers and domestic processors

In November 2014, the Regulation will come into effect. It specifies due diligence requirements and the regulated timber products subject to those requirements. The Regulation states that importers must undertake due diligence to minimise the risk of importing regulated timber products that are made from, or contain, illegally logged timber. This means that after November 2014 importers and processors must comply with the requirements set out in the regulation.
