Engineered Hardwood Flooring | Forestry Timber
Forestry Timber takes great pride in offering a completely safe, green product with innovative designs of engineered hardwood flooring in the widest range of colors, textures, and dimensions.
We ensure that all our floors meet the highest level of sustainability and compliance, as consolidated in our recent Environmental Product Declaration review.
Forestry Timber is FSC-C174718 and PEFC SCS-PEFC-COC-008866 Chain of Custody certified.
We have exported worldwide for more than 30 years with full Chain of Custody documentation and are SVLK/FLEGT certified.
Our flooring meets stringent import policies of all major markets such as Europe’s EUTR, USA’s Lacey Act, The Australian Illegal Logging Prohibition Act of 2012, and the UK post-Brexit UKTR.
The core and foundation layers of Forestry Timber’s engineered hardwood floors are made from renewable plantation species with a lifespan of 20 years – Hevea brasiliensis and Sengon. These layers combined represent at least 70% of each plank.
Hevea brasiliensis shares the same high density, strength, and resilience of Oak, making it an excellent environmentally sound substitute for Oak and other slow-growing hardwood species.
Our floors are biodegradable with a lifespan of 50 years and can be repurposed or incinerated at the end of life to generate energy.
All products or materials used in manufacturing our floors meet the criteria set by REACH.
The glue used in constructing our engineered hardwood floors is categorised as E0 – which has Zero emissions.
All reactive technologies – color enhancements are non-toxic and environmentally friendly, as are all top coats and finishings.
We invest heavily in our research and development to ensure that all products used in the manufacturing of our floors meet the highest level of compliance testing.
Forestry Timber’s products meet the following standards of compliance: Blue Angel, FloorScore, No Added Formaldehyde, VOC A+, and also contribute to LEED and BREEAM credits.
Our manufacturing plant is located in Indonesia. Over 70% of our raw wood is indigenous to Indonesia, thereby limiting the impact of carbon emissions in transportation.
The overflow water from a river located on the premises is used in the boilers, which are fuelled by old wood chips, dust, shavings, and cut-offs collected and incinerated to provide energy to power our kilns.
All salvageable wood cut-offs or rejects are used to make pallets, furniture for local schools, and handicrafts, supporting local families both in employment and additional income generation.
There is minimal wastage within the entire manufacturing process.
The location of our manufacturing plant also reduces our carbon emissions as there is no need for heating or additional lighting during the day.
Hevea brasiliensis and Sengon plantations, owned and managed by Indonesian smallholdings and village cooperative farmers, provide employment in areas that would otherwise have limited job opportunities.
Our manufacturing plant provides stable employment for more than 1,200 adult employees, all 18 years and older. All employees work a 40-hour week, with rest periods during the day, and are entitled to paid annual leave.
Our manufacturing plant undergoes regular audits for international compliance certification. We maintain a strict policy against child or forced labor. This statement reaffirms our stance on this matter.
