MIRAGE HARDWOOD FLOORING: Manufacturing Benefits
Drying of the Wood:
The MIRAGE factory operates on site, all the kilns to dry the
lumber to exacting standards necessary to produce their flooring,
thus controls everything from log to finished product. Before
it is made into flooring, every board is then tested for the correct
moisture content! This avoids cracks showing up afterwards, when
unusually wet boards decide to finish drying in your house. All
warehouses and production facilities are humidity controled to
maintain the correct moisture content in the flooring while waitng
to be delivered to your job site.
Milling the perfect tongue & groove:
The strips are always manufactured perfectly straight, with a constant
thickness and width offering you a perfect tongue and groove fit.
These high manufacturing standards and quality control assure an
easy and worry-free installation and you save on installation time.
Wastage is virtually eliminated.
Sanding that brings out the beauty
of the wood:
All flooring is premounted into panels for table top style sanding.
This offers superior sanding accuracy with the smallest and most
uniform MICRO-V joints in the industry. Each board then becomes
the exact same thickness as its partner, laying a floor that feels
good on your feet.
Staining to highlight the diverse grain
Stains are applied uniformly across the wood, as well as in the
MICRO-V joints, to bring out the beauty of the grain in each native
and exotic wood species.
Each colour is tested with a digital camera, to guarantee the
accuracy of colour match with the previous batch of flooring.
This is a great advantage, when you want to install some flooring
today, and continue the job further down the road. MIRAGE guarantees
the accuracy of colour from batch to batch, thus it is not necessary
to get all your flooring from the same "dye lot".
The Finish, for maximun durability:
An aluminium oxide compound is suspended in an ultraviolet cured
polyurethane, for amazing protection and more abrasion resistance
to wear then the historical polyurethanes. Ten coats of this finish
are applied to every strip of flooring. The finish is sanded,
buffed and UV cured for maximum adhesion to the wood and long
lasting durability. The finish is tested for adhesion, thickness
and shine level, guaranting you the same quality and shine on
every batch. This is supported by a residential 25 year finish
Today they have gone one step further and become the first hardwood
flooring manufacturer to use nano-technology in their floor finish...
this is well beyond my technical knowledge to comprehend, but
what I do know is that it eliminates much of the shatter crack
lines typical when something is dropped on the surface. Again
offering great durability!
