Engineered Hardwood Flooring
The beauty of solid timber flooring, engineered to perfection. Boral Engineered Flooring brings the sophistication and warmth of real timber to a home in a range of unique Australian hardwood timber species. Boral Engineered Flooring is designed with a quality multi-layer construction, providing a stable timber floor with easy installation over many surfaces.
Boral Engineered Flooring can be glued or ‘floated’ over any level subfloor such as a concrete slab, particleboard or plywood sheeting or over old timber floors or tiles.
As with all hardwood timber floors, Boral Engineered Flooring is not recommended for bathrooms, laundries or other wet areas.
For further information on installation see the Boral Engineered Flooring Installation Guide.

Care and Maintenance
Like all timber floors Boral Engineered Flooring will mark and scratch. However, it can be re-coated or re-sanded as required, just like traditional wood flooring in order to maintain your floor.
- Sweep or vacuum (bristles down) your floor regularly to remove stones and abrasive grit or dirt.
- Install dirt trapping mats at external entrances.
- Apply felt floor protectors to the underside of all moving furniture to reduce marking or scratching.
- Damp clean using a barely moist mop. For best results, add one capful of Timber Cleaner to your water and towel off any excess moisture immediately after damp mopping.
Full Maintenance Instructions can be obtained from your local retailer.
