Mountville, Pa.— Parterre, a brand of AHF Products, introduced three new commercial engineered hardwood flooring lines for the architecture and design community: Wooded Habitat, Nurtured and Deeply Rooted, giving customers one point of contact for both hardwood and luxury vinyl products for the contract market.
According to the company, the new commercial engineered hardwood flooring blends strength and resiliency with classic beauty and sophistication. The line features a variety of white oak, northern red oak, hickory, maple and birch hardwood products.
“This offering is all about creating unique looks that can add interest to any commercial space,” said Brian Parker, vice president-product management, AHF Products. “Natural wood can carry the motif and experience of the entire establishment. The right wood flooring is an authentic and critical component of engaging spaces that designers want customers to remember.”
Some of the new Parterre wood offerings feature the exclusive Densitek core. Made up of layers, engineered hardwood with Densitek core is constructed with a 100% natural wood veneer top, Densitek core and 100% wood bottom. Densitek core is an engineered wood composite material created by compressing real wood fibers. According to the company, it is more dense and less porous than solid wood or wood veneer, offering greater dent resistance, dimensional stability and moisture resistance, which does not change the floor’s visuals or textures in any way.
Parterre engineered hardwood floors are easy to maintain and feature a low-gloss, high-performance urethane coating with aluminum oxide with lasting durability. Clean by sweeping or vacuuming and use hardwood and laminate floor cleaner as needed. Choose from floating, glue-down or staple methods for installation.
“Take your corporate office to the next level by adding high-end, high-value white oak to your boardroom or the CEO’s office,” Parker added. “Bring eye-catching design and sophistication to niche retail stores and boutique hotel lobbies—anywhere you want clients and customers to take notice.”
