If you haven’t heard by now, rubber wood is the newest thing in environmentally friendly building materials.
It is called eco-friendly, because the wood from rubber trees (Hevea brasiliensis) in plantations used to be burned once the trees reach the end of its 30 year latex producing cycle. Now instead of being burned, rubberwood is used for things such as bathroom fixtures, toys, parquet floors and high-end home & office furniture.
Rubberwood FJ Parquet Flooring
Rubberwood is similar to Maplewood, being a “medium hardwood” that is a by product of sap producing trees (i.e. rubber trees). While the sap from Maplewood trees is used for syrup, rubberwood sap is used to produce latex, which can then be turned into natural rubber.
Rubberwood finger-joint panels are used in constructing parquet floors for high traffic areas at home and office. Being a hardwood makes rubberwood parquet floors perfect for high traffic indoor use.
Rubberwood has minimal shrinkage during the drying process, which means it is less likely to warp, making it a very stable material for use in parquet floors construction.
Its has a fine grain that makes the finish product compare favorably to other hardwoods used in parquet flooring, such as Oak and Maplewood.
Because it combines low cost, durability, and excellent fit and finish, rubberwood finger-joint parquet floors are more popular and affordable than they have ever been.
All of these things, when taken together, should have you convinced that rubberwood finger joint parquet floors are right for your house and office.
