Flooring Certification Explained

Putting sustaibilty at the heart of every floor and project

We go above and beyond the usual environmental and sustainability standards, and have many third party accreditations. We know that these accreditations and logos can often be unfamiliar when you’re choosing a floor, so we have broken them down into this handy chart.

In short, all of our timber (whether floors or wall cladding) follow the UK Timber Regulations as standard, which verifies that all of our timber is legally harvested.

The vast majority of our floors are then also accredited by FSC™ or PEFC, both of which are global organisations that independently confirm that all of our floors that are made from new timber are sourced from well managed forests.

Many of our Woodworks floors are reclaimed, which is a great way to reuse and recycle old wood to save it from going to waste. Old wood can’t be certified in the same way that new timber can be, but it is very environmentally friendly as it extends the lifecycle of wood that was felled decades (or even centuries!) ago.

All of our floors are SVOC free and have low VOC emissions, which make them a great choice to have in your home. SVOCs are pollutants at the molecular level which are emitted from synthetic man-made materials such as LVT, vinyl and plastics
