Combining strength and beauty, maple has a delicate, tight grain and a naturally light colour tone. With a Janka Scale hardness rating of 1450, maple is harder than other indigenous North American woods such as oak, providing durability and long-lasting qualities. Indeed, combining stunning looks with its natural, hard-wearing characteristics, maple has been the commonly used hardwood surface for basketball courts for over a century.
As a native species, maple is also abundant and grows relatively quickly. This makes maple one of the most environmentally conscious choices.
We offer a 30 year residential warranty with this product.
Engineered hardwood floors are built with stability and resilience in mind. They combine alternating layers of plywood with a solid layer of natural solid hardwood on top, and a stabilizing veneer underneath.
The plywood core allows the floor to expand and contract naturally. As a result, engineered flooring provides better resistance to temperature variations and moisture than solid hardwood, while still providing you with the benefits of natural hardwood.
Selection and Style
Due to the increased stability, engineered hardwood flooring allows for wider plank widths than you’ll typically find with solid flooring.
NAF Engineered Hardwood Handscraped Maple comes in 6.5” widths, giving this traditional yet timeless floor a modern look. The handscraped planks to give a depth of texture and character to your floor and helping it to stand up to kids or pets.
Environment and Health
NAF Engineered Hardwood Handscraped Maple meets standards for the release of toxic gasses such as formaldehyde, making it better for the environment and your health. Using oak as your choice of hardwood is also beneficial to the environment as oak has a smaller carbon footprint than most other hardwood options.
Engineered wood floors can be installed almost anywhere above or below grade, and on top of most types of subfloor. With an advanced tongue-and-groove click system, NAF Engineered Handscraped Maple is simple to install, although it can be nailed down over a wood subfloor if you wish. The product can be installed over an underlayment such as our Husssh! I & II series of underpad.
