Expert guidance at our flooring store
Every part of a building or renovation project is resource intensive – but it doesn’t have to cost the Earth. That’s why we’ve selected suppliers and manufacturers that are proving their commitment to reducing their harm to nature.
From managed forestry sites for our hardwoods to the reclaimed wood used as core boards for many of our products, the traditional and sustainable harvesting of cork bark for our Cork and CorkWoodXP products, and the low-VOC certifications of our composite floors, you can enjoy your new flooring knowing that sustainability has been considered with every range.
At Floorboards, there are two methods for connecting boards that we trust. The first is the traditional tongue-and-groove system that’s used exclusively on our glued timber floors. For all our floating floors – those ranges installed without glues or adhesives – we only trust the mechanical interlocking system called Uniclic®.
While there are many competitors out there, only Uniclic® joints on high density fibre (HDF) can be driven together and apart, or lifted to unlock, without damaging the board.
Precision engineered to thousandths of a millimetre, the Uniclic® joint is stronger than glue, but reversible. That means seamless, strong joining of your floorboards – and the option to unlock boards for repairs or board replacement thanks to a specialised tool that was invented in Tauranga and is now used worldwide.
The ability to drive boards on and off and uplift without damaging the joint is what makes the Uniclic® joint unique and far superior to many jointing systems on the market. But because it’s the best, and licenced, you’ll only find it on superior floating products.
If it’s not Uniclic®, then it’s the tried-and-true tongue and groove system that holds our glued timbers together.
