‘Enjoy the benefits of this engineered alternative to flooring grade plywood’

WITH a network of distributors and stockists across the UK, LION Floor says it’s readily available so you can ‘enjoy the benefits of this engineered alternative to flooring grade plywood wherever you’re located’.

The company says: ‘Building on its rapid growth in availability throughout 2022, flooring contractors and installers can now enjoy a reliable supply of LION Floor pre-conditioned engineered fibreboard, ensuring whatever the scale of project, there’s a sustainable and cost-effective alternative to flooring grade plywood.’

Because it’s made in Finland from locally sourced wood by-products, LION Floor reportedly has a simpler supply chain that’s less prone to delays and which is said to enjoy a far lower carbon footprint than the cross-continent shipping needed for flooring grade plywood.

Continues the company: ‘This reliable and regular supply, along with excellent product quality and consistency, means installers can trust the LION Floor name.’

Peter Jones, Finnish Fibreboard, says: ‘We’ve designed LION Floor to meet the demands of use beneath floorcoverings. Every aspect of its function and performance has been made with a simple and reliable installation in mind.

‘That’s seen many flooring installers make the switch from flooring grade plywood and as we continue to broaden availability in more locations, we’re confident it’ll become trusted as the number one choice in British Standard compliant fabricated underlays.’

The company adds: ‘As well as flooring distributors and stockists, LION Floor has also seen adoption at other trade distribution channels, further widening availability and reaching an audience of builders and DIYers keen to find a simple and reliable alternative to flooring grade plywood.

‘With a construction that eliminates the core gaps and overlaps commonly found in plywood, there’s no doubting LION Floor is a high-quality and reliable alternative to BS 8203 plywood. Thanks to its high-grade construction that’s denser and more rigid than plywood, similar strength can be achieved with thinner board, So, when replacing a BS 8203 6mm compliant plywood, ensure you choose the 4.8mm thick LION Floor.’

The company concludes: ‘Because LION Floor is preconditioned and doesn’t need wetting before installation, it’s just as easy to install as plywood. In fact, as it can be cut cleanly and quickly with a knife or saw, it’s arguably even easier to achieve a high-quality flooring installation with LION Floor at your side.’

Fixed with ring shank nails and suitable for screeds and feather compounds, there’s no longer a reason to choose BS 8203 compliant plywood, says the company.
