Designing naturally: sustainable flooring solutions

Only a few years ago, any sport, school hall or civic building with timber floors would have been covered in a hazardous solvent polyurethane. The situation now could not be more different. We spoke to Look Floors about the sustainable options available and their huge uptake in New Zealand.

Words by ArchiPro Editorial Team

When a sprinkler was set off accidentally in a recreation centre at Wellington’s Tawa College, the building flooded and had to be rebuilt. When it came to the timber flooring, finish and longevity were important because of its high use.

That’s where Look Floors got involved and within one day had sanded, applied a primer and first top coat; the next day the line marking was done and on day three the last two coats were applied, returning the hall to its former glory. “With the latest technology this is now a possibility. What can be achieved is just extraordinary with the quick-dry technology that we have on hand,” Look Floors’ Luigi del Grosso says.

Bona Prime Intense, a natural polyurethane primer, was first applied, followed by three coats of Bona Traffic HD (heavy duty). “What we are trying to do by using these incredibly forward-thinking environmentally friendly products are changing the industry and showing people what can be achieved with solvent-free and VOC free products,” Luigi says.

Look Floors are the exclusive distributors of Bona products in New Zealand. “Bona are pioneers in the development of waterborne finishes and have been since 1919, now a world leading company offering a full range of environmentally sound products, which are designed and manufactured in Sweden. This range of products are opening the flooring finishing market to new possibilities, which was witnessed in Wellington this month.”

“A few years ago, every sports hall in New Zealand would have been finished with a hazardous solvent polyurethane. The fumes from that type of product are just unbelievable and so when this type of product is used people in the surrounding vicinity need to leave and it requires buildings, or parts of them, to be out of use for some time while the fumes subside and product dries.”

Part of the allure of Bona products is the quick-dry technology, which allows a full job, from start to finish and handover to client, to be completed within 30 hours. “They are also solvent and VOC-free, with a five-star European green rating.”

Suitable for almost any application on solid or engineered timber flooring, Bona natural polyurethane products are available for uses ranging from residential through to high-use public buildings.

“The four different grades move from everyday residential through to the highest heavy-duty option, which is what was used at Tawa College in Wellington,” Luigi says. There are also five different gloss levels to choose from, depending on the aesthetic preference wanting to be achieved.

If you’re looking at finishing options for solid or engineered timber flooring with a greener approach that is hard wearing, make sure you visit Look Floors on ArchiPro here to see what can be achieved with the latest innovations from Sweden.
