Hakwood USA- Hardwood Flooring!

Here at Live Green Malibu, we are proud to be a member of the U.S.G.B.C.! The U.S. Green Building Council is a non-profit community of leaders working to make green building materials available to everyone within our generation. The U.S.G.B.C. oversees a rigorous green building certification system known as LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) that rewards the use of sound environmental practices and materials in construction.

Today we want to introduce to you Hakwood USA, a fellow member of the U.S.G.B.C., and an incredible new way to look at hardwood flooring. All Hakwood engineered flooring also qualifies for at least one LEED credit!

Hakwood specializes in the manufacture of wide-width, long-length flooring. Utilizing sustainable resources in Europe, the US and from around the world, Hakwood produces state of the art solid & engineered flooring.

Hakwood wide-width engineered flooring is a stable, beautiful, versatile, and environmentally responsible choice for your hardwood floors.

Founded in 1979, Hakwood became a major industrial producer of wood products. Their product range has expanded to a large program of both solid and engineered flooring products for the professional market. Over the last decade, Hakwood has developed a great experience in the production of engineered flooring products.

Hakwood engineered flooring is the solution for wide stable wood flooring. In the past the fear of swelling, twisting, warping and shrinking have prevented distributors from supplying wide boards with confidence. However these concerns can be put aside as Hakwood engineered flooring provides the solution.

The reason for the stability and durability of Hakwood Engineered Flooring is its unique structure. A 14 mm water resistant plywood back layer together with a 6 mm solid Hardwood top layer ensures a stable durable product. Hakwood flooring gives the appearance and properties of a solid board, together with all the advantages of engineered flooring.

Hakwood pays great attention to the selection of wood and wood suppliers. The purchase department travels all over the world to ensure that top quality products are delivered by reliable suppliers.

At different stages of production Hakwood’s wood flooring is sorted and inspected to insure that each grade meets its requirements. Before finished products are dispatched, each production is thoroughly inspected in the laboratory. These engineered flooring products are produced by a “State of Art” process, ensuring excellent quality control. Hakwood always concentrates on industrial research and development in order to continuously improve its state of the art production process and maintain its leading position.
