‘Better across the board with LION Floor’

LION Floor is described as the purpose-made engineered resilient flooring underlay that’s better than flooring grade plywood across the board.

Says the company: ‘For installers used to using flooring grade plywood for their resilient flooring installations but finding variable quality and intermittent availability problematic, LION Floor is better across the board. What’s more, LION Floor is just as easy to install, more cost-effective and comes with third-party verified EPD that measures its environmental impact as significantly lower.

‘LION Floor is pre-conditioned so doesn’t need wetting before installation and it can be cut cleanly and quickly with a knife or saw. Fixed with screws or ring shank nails and suitable for screeds and feather compounds, there’s no longer a reason to choose BS 8203 compliant plywood. LION Floor is one of a very small number of fabricated underlays which can be used for LVT and other resilient floor coverings that meets British Standards and CFA guidance.’

The company continues: ‘Reliability is one of LION Floor’s strengths. The dense board is exceptionally resistant to impacts and the construction eliminates the problems that come with the core gaps and overlaps found in plywood. It’s a fast and effective way to deliver a first-class resilient floor installation. LION Floor is also a cost-effective alternative to BS 8203 compliant plywood. Made in Finland from readily available wood by-product and free from the highly volatile shipping and material costs encountered by flooring grade plywood, the engineered fibreboard is also consistently affordable.

‘And because the board is made in Finland from the by-product of wood processing industries, LION Floor demonstrates a significantly lower global warming potential (GWP) than other European particleboard or plywood. LION Floor’s environmental performance is verified with a third-party awarded EPD issued by epdhub.com.’

Peter Jones, Finnish Fibreboard says: ‘LION Floor is for installers looking to provide high-quality, uncompromised and low risk flooring installations. More cost-effective than BS compliant plywood, more reliable than cheaper plywood that might not meet BS 8203 requirements, and with verified environmental performance; LION Floor is just as easy to install, so there are very few reasons not to choose it.’
