Why Customers Should Choose Indusparquet
Some of the world’s most respected settings, such as The Vatican, feature our products. Many of world’s biggest and most upscale retail design leaders, like Louis Vuitton stores and Ferrari showrooms, trust their brand to our brand.
We produce the best Brazilian wood flooring for the most upscale tastes. Our customers understand the wood, and our technology, but also have an eye for planning, space and the creativity to understand how this wood will capture the light in the room. Leading architects and designers buy our wood for the beauty and durability, but remain clients, because of our products, processes and professionalism. We know what it means to be the best. We’ve learned that our customers appreciate that level of excellence across everything we do.
Just because we’re 100 years old, doesn’t mean we don’t have the latest technology. Our manufacturing is as beautiful as our wood. The world’s best architectural and design firms trust us with their biggest and most important projects, because they know we’re engineered right.
Our products are built to be as durable as they are beautiful. All engineered profiles are a multi-ply construction using 100% hardwood. Every sub ply has different grain direction to improve stability. This structure reduces the expansion and contraction of the wood. We know that improves performance, especially in environments with high fluctuation in humidity and temperature. Engineered flooring can be installed below, on, or above grade.
Our hardwoods come in a range of thicknesses and lengths and can be sanded and refinished multiple times, because it’s solid from top to bottom. Available in an extensive range of hardwood species, with the option of having unique, handcrafted, textured finishes or Induro™ aluminum oxide coating and nine layers of ClearVue™ varnish, the solid profile, like nature itself, will never fail you.
This is our newest line and has been in development for years. It’s our most tested product and specially engineered to meet the need for the heaviest of foot traffic. An extra thick top layer of Brazilian hardwood is surfaced onto alternating cross-grained hardwood fillets. Our unique, 100% solid-on-solid construction offers superb stability and durability. Wood choices include species such as Brazilian Pecan, Walnut and Teak, each providing a mix of stunning colors and textures to beautify any room. Solidarity can be installed on and above grade and is not approved for drier markets.
This is for architects and designers who want it all. Exotic hardwoods, mosaic patterns and metallic finishes are uniquely wonderful for the flooring, or as a wall covering. So, the application is limitless and it expands your vision, your creativity.
Products and Processes
An exclusive, natural drying process which the lumber is left to breathe and de-moisturize in a fresh air environment for no less than six months for a more durable, dimensionally stable finished product.
Long Length products are milled and randomly cut longer than the standard 48” of most imports. These longer lengths provide the ultimate in linear elegance with a mix that delivers superlative visual balance and beauty.
A colorless, nine-coat applied crystal clear finish allows our exceptional rich colors and textures to come through within each of our exotic hardwood profiles. Due to this exclusive process, our floors need minimal maintenance and do not require waxing.
High performance aluminium-oxide crystals deliver unprecedented scratch and abrasion resistance. Our products are designed to meet the extra demands of commercial work spaces.
Most Indusparquet species are harder than domestics.
Finish Tests And Quality Control
Our floors are durable, naturally, but we help Mother Nature with testing that assures quality. According to the standards of the Taber Abrasion test, IndusParquet flooring is able to withstand 2200 cycles, which is nearly four times above the industry hardwood flooring standard of 600 cycles.
We test for scratches by placing 10, 12, or 14-pound weights on top of the equipment and a coin is placed on its bottom. Resistance can be measured if the pressure applied by the heavy weight when moving the tip of that coin forward and backwards repeatedly doesn’t crack, or break the finish. This test follows norm ASTM D5178 and production lot is approved if there weren’t any deformities in the finish.
This test analyzes cracks, break and dips in the product, usually created by heavy furniture. A 1-pound steel ball is released onto the wood three times from three different heights: 12-inches, 36- and 72-inches. The entire production lot is approved if no damages are seen on the finish of the tested wood. The test follows norm ASTM D-2394.
To determine the resistance of applied finish to separation from the wood, we cut a right angle lattice pattern into the coating, penetrating all the way to the wood. A tape is placed on top of crosshatch cut with pressure. The product is only considered approved when the finish will not detach from the wood after the tape is pulled up quickly. The cross-cut test follows norm ASTM D-3359.
This test verifies the layers of the engineered flooring that are glued to each other. Some pieces of the production lot are selected and submerged in cold water for four hours. We then remove from the water and placed in a kiln with a temperature of approximately 120 degrees for 19 hours. This cycle is repeated three times. Our production lot is only approved if 95% does not detach in the first cycle; or 85% by the third cycle.
Floors may possess a greater range of grain or color variation than found in samples. Color variations due to sunlight exposure over time are a natural characteristic of wood floors.
Indusparquet products insure the indoor environment is also protected. We meet or beat the industry standards in safety ratings.
Each of these ratings ensure that Indusparquet hardwood flooring is tested and rated to be the safest flooring.
