When specifying building products, sustainability and durability are vital ingredients to ensure long lasting looks and performance. Flooring is particularly tricky to get right due to its excessive traffic and numerous other factors that will affect the performance over its lifetime.
Thankfully, materials and surface treatments are available that can preserve its appearance and retain its quality. For example, in this month’s dedicated supplement, FCamp;A profiles the advantages of wood plastic composite – an alternative to traditional timber. Products found within Dura Composites’ range won’t warp or rot and can be supplied with UV inhibitors for long-lasting colour. Elsewhere, Accoya presents the benefits of its modified wood flooring which bucks the trend for problematic solid wood flooring. Find out more on page 12.
