Parterre Diversifies into Commercial Hardwood
Mountville, PA, October 27, 2021-Parterre, a brand of AHF Products, has diversified into hardwood, introducing three commercial engineered hardwood flooring lines for the architecture and design community, providing customers one point of contact for both hardwood and luxury vinyl products for the contract market.
Parterre, acquired by AHF in January 2021, has been a resilient-only brand since its founding in 1991.
The line features a variety of white oak, northern red oak, hickory, maple and birch hardwood products.
Wood floors are inherently durable, and 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. It is more dense and less porous than solid wood or wood veneer, offering greater dent resistance, dimensional stability and moisture resistance. While performance is improved across-the-board, it 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.
Parterre commercial engineered hardwood collections are FloorScore certified for compliance with indoor air quality emissions. The products are compliant with the U.S. Lacey Act, which is a conservation law that prohibits illegal practices when it comes to wildlife, fish and plants. They are also TSCA Title VI compliant, which is the federal regulation that mandates the reduction of formaldehyde in certain wood products. Parterre products may be eligible for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credits.
