WALK on your very own REAL Australian Hardwood floor today. In the hectic world we all live in, its nice to be able to take the

time and WALK on a beautiful Engineered Hardwood floor. With its unique glueless locking system HM WALK is fast and

easy to install in your home. HM WALK is and engineered hardwood floor, which means that the surface you WALK on and see is made of strong Australian hardwood, while underneath the surface HM WALK uses an extremely stable construction made of 9ply Eucalypt. This type of construction ensures the maximum use of our precious hardwood, which in turn is better for the environment.

Recoating Engineered Flooring:

The surface coating on HM WALK can be refinished if it becomes worn or scratched. Refinishing involves either mechanically or chemically bonding a new coat to the old surface finish. This is done, by either abrading the old surface finish with an appropriate “sanding screen”
to create a mechanical bond or by using a product like “Intergrain Floating Floor Finish**” that goes straight over a clean floor and has a chemical bond to the old surface finish.

Recoating is a different process than “sanding” an engineered floor and if you are looking to use a thicker veneer due to the fact that you think you will be able to sand the floor, be aware.

1. A large amount of people think they will sand their engineered flooring in years to come, but very few actually do. One of the reasons that people buy prefinished floors is for the no mess,

2. No toxic fumes and no dust aspect of the product. Most engineered floors that are sanded are not because the coat has worn, but because of other problems – like cupping or crowing has acured.

3. Prefinished engineered floors are not easily sanded – due to the toughness of the coating, it is normally very expensive to have a floor sanded back to bare wood

Some engineered floors are stained and have features and scrapings that if they are sanded the floor will look entirely different.

Engineered floors are not designed to have high speed heavy sanding machines operating on top of them, this can lead to further problems like delaminating and some manufactures void the warranty if a floor is sanded.

State of the art production techniques:

HM WALK uses some of the latest techniques in its construction – from its super strong 13 coat system, it’s conservative use of the Australian Hardwood surface through to the plantation Eucalypt core, it’s a flooring that has been engineered to not only look good and respect the environment , but to stand up to the everyday running of your house.
