BOEN Bruk AS started manufacturing mosaic and solid wood flooring in 1953 progressing to multi-layer prefinished hardwood flooring in 1966. The knowledge we acquired during those many years, is drawn on today when manufacturing our multi-layered hardwood flooring which comes in a range of thicknesses from 10-23mm.
BOEN's wood specialists and engineers have a vast knowledge of the effect the climate has on wood. This important factor has played a significant role in our choice of technology and techniques. BOEN have themselves developed and built many of the principal machines used in the production process. BOEN's standards are on average considerably higher than those which are generally practised in the production of parquet.
Product stability and precision
Wood continually expands and contracts in accordance with changes in humidity. Many attempts have been made to hinder the movement of the hardwood strips, but none have been totally successful. The thicker and wider the staves are, the greater the variation experienced.
Comparison tests show that BOEN multi layer hardwood has very little convex and concave movement. This is due to a combination of narrow strips, correct composition of the blocking layer, a very good adhesion process and continuous follow-up based on BOEN's Quality Control System.
ConneXProcess - advanced method of planing
In contrast to other manufacturers of multi-layered hardwood flooring, we mill the tongue and groove after varnishing. The edges of the board are then sharp and the floor when laid does not have any visible joins. BOEN was the first on the market with such a product and is able to deliver a product that is top in its class in the worlds parquet market.
Unique tongue and groove connection
Our patented sports floor BOFLEX has an unique tongue and groove connection that withstands decades of wear. BOEN's product development department has incorporated this knowledge into its standard multi layer hardwood flooring products. Such tiny details provide a dramatic improvement to installation and connection between tongue and groove.
Laquered floors - BOEN Protect Ultra
BOEN's ready varnished multi layer hardwood flooring is coated with 6 layers:
- special layer of impregnating lacquer
- foundation lacquer containing pore filler
- 2 layers of strong foundation lacquer
- finally two top layers with improved resistance to micro scratches
The result is an even, smooth and easy-care surface. Lacquer must incorporate a number of properties to enable the ready laid floor to function well:
- good adherence to the wood
- allow a certain amount of flexibility to facilitate for movement in the floor
- water repellent
- attractive lustre.
In addition, it needs to be "fast to light" and stop UV rays affecting the colour of the wood. Neither must it contain dangerous gasses or combustible elements. For a manufacturer there are a number of hygiene, environmental, mechanical and chemical factors to be addressed. BOEN Protect Ultra satisfies all of these requirements.
BOEN Ecoline (Pre-oiled)
Boens pre-oiled parquet is treated with 2 coats of oil which are brushed and polished into the wood. Excess oil is then removed and finally the oil is dried and tempered with the help of 6 UV lamps. The oil does not contain dangerous gasses and satisfies all the requirements for oiled surface treatment in accordance with European standards. Ecoline Oil is revolutionary within pre-oiling since it does not require additional treatment when the floor is laid in a room exposed to normal wear.

BOEN offers a wide variety of wood types in several grades, patterns and thicknesses either with pre-lacquered or pre-oiled surfaces. Patterns: Long strip, plank, ships plank of wide and narrow boards, double and single herringbone, basket weave combined with boards and decorative squares. Thicknesses: 10, 12, 15, 21, or 23mm.
