For clean indoor air
Formaldehyde is one of the hazardous chemicals having a negative impact on the quality of indoor air. One of the main sources for formaldehyde is the chipboard but formaldehyde may also evaporate from laminates, parquets and panels, if adhesive containing formaldehyde is used for gluing them. Formaldehyde may irritate the eyes and upper respiratory passages even at low quantities, and it is suspected to have a connection with asthma symptoms. These facts are noteworthy, especially in families, where small children crawl and play on the floor. The floor is one of the largest surfaces in a home and being a floor producer Timberwise therefore has chosen product safety as one of our most important quality criteria. We are the first parquet factory in the world to use completely formaldehyde-free adhesive in all our products.
Safe and emission-free products enhance living comfort, ensure better breathing air in your home and reduce the risk of allergies and asthma.
Ecology arises from practical achievements
Timberwise parquet floors are a good and safe choice for both your home and the environment. Our products meet all the requirements set by EU directives (CE-marking, DoP Declaration of Performance), and they have been classified in the best emission and adhesive glue seam categories of building materials: JAS F**** and JAS2. Nothing is left to chance regarding the safety of our products. We are the first flooring factory in the world to use completely formaldehyde-free adhesive in all our products.
In addition to clean breathing air, we also care about the environment. The timber we use comes from PEFC certified forests, where the number of trees that are grown exceeds the number that are cut. To ensure sustainable development we do not use exotic wood species at all.
We follow the environmentally friendly way of thinking at our factory. For example, we do not use endangered wood species, on the opposite; we have specialized in color treatments that allow us to offer our customers exotic look a like color surfaces on our certified raw materials. In addition we also recycle all the waste and by-products from the production processes. As an example the sawdust we use for heating our drying chambers.
