most used wood species for our sports parquet floors
HEVEA RUBBER WOOD
Hevea Rubber wood is a very common wood in Southeast
Asia and natural rubber comes from these plantations.
This kind of tree is cut every 20/25 years and it’s
therefore easily renewable; this is an essential
feature from the environmental point of view.
Solid Hevea has very uniform characteristics and has
average hardness similar to Oak. The resin contained
in Hevea Rubber wood is actually rubber and this
makes this wood very stable and suitable for big
surfaces manufacture. Moreover, it’s a naturally
elastic wood and therefore excellent for gyms,
sports halls and fitness centres.
The main characteristics of this wood are the
• Hevea Rubber wood has a good hardness and has
technical characteristics similar both to Oak and
• The resin contained in this wood is Rubber, which
makes it extremely elastic;
• Dimensional stability, essential for big surfaces;
• Possibility of installation both with metal clips
system and nailed onto the elastic under structure.
Pre-finished engineered wood
Being a low stability species – highly respondent to
humidity – we recommend beech just in the engineered
version; in this case the nominal face is just 4 mm
and combined with less valuable wood species in
order to get a final package of 14 mm.
Beech, heavy and homogeneous, inelastic but
resistant, white colored at first or, after a while,
turning to reddish, is excellent for turning and
furniture purposes and a great combustible, often
used because of easy availability and low costs.
Valuable wood species mainly coming from Western and
South-Central Europe. Besides furniture purposes,
oak is used also for building purposes, laminated
beams, parquet, shipyards, staves for wine (and
other alcoholic drinks) aging barrels and even for
coffins. Great combustible, also used to make coal.
The color is dark comparing to light colored species
normally used for sports floors; it’s still highly
appreciated in Eastern Europe, where it’s still
traditionally used and where you can find big oak
We recommend oak for our model TIRANO; the top layer
consists of UV pre-lacquered, 6 mm nominal face.
Being a low stability species, it’s subject to
dimensional changes in case of humidity, so we
normally use just the 6 mm nominal face.
Light colored wood species, historically used for
high-level sports parquet floors, widely used in the
Our maple comes from Eastern Europe. We rather use
European maple because it’s harder and lighter
comparing to the American one, which is very
important since maple normally turns to yellowish in
time. Our Hevea Rubber Wood has technical features
and color definitely similar to maple.
