Hy Tek
Application

Specifically designed for high-traffic environments such as hotels, offices, museums, airports, shops etc. It is also suitable for residential schemes and for installation over underfloor heating (UFH) systems.

Please note that due to the fact that wood is a natural product, each veneer may have colour and structure differences. Singularities such as knots and resin inclusions are not considered as defects. There are differences in light fastness performances depending on the wood species and the source of the wood - consult manufacturer for further details.

Description

Engineered hardwood flooring which combines the natural characteristics of timber with the technical requirements necessary for installation in residential spaces and high traffic environments.

With resins that protect the wood surface and a bakelite coating in its counterface, Hy Tek is a 100% moisture resistant floor, suitable for installation in areas with frequent contact with water. Available in 15 different types of wood and two types of surface finish. Four different boards widths allow for a more traditional and random look, created by mixing different widths.

Construction:

  • Natural timber veneer impregnated with resins.
  • Resin bonded weather and boil proof (WBP) plywood core.
  • High pressure laminate (HPL) balancer.

Features and benefits:

  • No maintenance required - the surface composition is suitable for high traffic areas, eliminating the need for any maintenance or treatment.
  • Wear resistance - having obtained AC6 classification, the flooring reaches the highest level of wear resistance according to the BS EN 438-2: Part 11 regulation.
  • Slip resistance - satisfies Class 1 requirements, however it can also be supplied with the Class 2 (Rd≥35) slip resistance surface characteristic as defined by the Spanish Technical Code regulation.

Product Options

Finish:

  • Satin: Smooth surface, slightly satin, reflecting light less significantly than a gloss finish.
  • Woodskin matt: Finished with an ‘open pore’ texture, where one can feel the grain and knots from the original wood. Light refraction is minimal, similar in appearance to an oiled finish, so matt in nature.
