13 Manufacturers Have Joined NWFA Engineered Refinishable Program
St. Louis, MO, January 9, 2023-The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) has added 13 wood flooring manufacturers to its Engineered Refinishable program since launching the program early last fall.
The program was established to identify engineered wood flooring products with wearlayers thick enough to be sanded and refinished. The program is voluntary and aligns with European standards.
Manufacturers that have completed the product evaluation process to be included in the program include Appalachian Lumber, Breezewood Floors, Carlisle Wide Plank Floors, Lauzon Distinctive Hardwood Flooring, Maxwell/Ouachita Hardwood Flooring, Middle Tennessee Lumber, Mullican Flooring, Pacific Hardwood, Reliance Hardwood Flooring, Saroyan Hardwoods, Somerset Hardwood Flooring, Superior Flooring, and Wickham Hardwood Flooring.
To be eligible to carry the certified refinishable logo, engineered wood flooring products must meet minimum wearlayer requirements. These vary depending on the product. Unfinished smooth products must have a minimum wear layer of 4/32 of an inch, or 3.2 millimeters. Factory finished smooth products must have a minimum wear layer of 3/32 of an inch, or 2.5 millimeters. Sculpted and distressed products must have a minimum wear layer of 3/32 of an inch, or 2.5 millimeters.
