Different base layer materials are possible for two-layer floorboards. Birch plywood and OSB (" Oriented s trand b oard ") are used for our floorboards. Each of these materials has relative advantages and disadvantages.
At the request of the company , SIA "Forest and Wood Products Research and Development Institute" has compared the properties of floorboards in different air humidity conditions for both versions of floorboards, installing them on a heated base. In both cases, the materials are made using adhesives without added formaldehyde.
In recent years, polyvinyl chloride floors have gained wide popularity. Simple equipment is required for their production, as raw materials waste from the disposal of old houses and other chemicals and products that would otherwise need to be disposed of at high temperatures can be used. Cheap raw materials, simple production technology and modern 3D printing equipment make this product attractive to both manufacturers and consumers.
However, before using polyvinyl chloride flooring in your living spaces, it is worth understanding the potential risks. Laminate, parquet or natural linoleum may still be a better alternative. Information about polyvinyl chloride floor coverings and their effects on human health is widely available on the Internet. Here are some links:

In the spring of 2023, construction of a new production workshop with a total area of 1440m2 was started. It provides for the placement of technology for the production of Effiplank floorboards. The production technology is provided according to the SIA <mstrans:dictionary translation= Wood">Amber Wood registered European patent. It is planned to complete the construction of the hangar in the fall of 2023.
Work is underway with potential equipment suppliers. The first tests of production are planned to be carried out in the spring of 2024. Today's Rafter Festival.
The invention relates to the production of floorboards. The invention is a two-layer floorboard, which includes an upper layer, glued together, made of rectangular elements of solid wood lumber connected by a line, perpendicular to the edges of the floorboards, and a lower layer, made of wooden board elements connected by a line along the floor the side edges of the boards form an angle of 30 to 60 degrees. The invention provides an opportunity to produce two-layer floorboards with increased mechanical properties of unlimited length and provides an opportunity to practically fully use wood raw materials.
Our goal is to provide customers with products that meet the highest environmental requirements and do not cause harmful emissions during operation.

Hardwood floors and parquet treated with hard wax are becoming more and more popular not only in Europe, but also all over the world. The wood surface treated with hard wax has high chemical resistance, and it still retains the feeling of natural wood underfoot. As one of the main advantages of hard wax, we consider the possibility of obtaining an unlimited number of tone variations according to the customer's wishes. Find more information about the difference between varnish and natural oil or hard wax here.
In order to determine the way forward, for mutual cooperation scientific Within the framework of the project, the State Forest Service, the Forest Research Station, the Latvian State Institute of Forestry Science "Silava", the State Plant Protection Service and the SIA "Amber agreed wood". The project has been prepared for a period of three years and provides a solution development to limit acute forging of oaks in Talsi hills MPS in the territory, which, if necessary, is also applicable to the rest of Latvia Territory.
