Mannington offers a broad
selection of wood floors in an exciting range of wood species,
gloss levels, constructions, and popular finishes. In choosing
the style of flooring you prefer, consider these options:
Our 7-step Ultrawear Plus polyurethane/aluminum oxide finish
provides unsurpassed protection against normal wear. Each Ultrawear
Plus step is ultraviolet cured, making it far more durable than
any finish that could be applied on-site. Our ScratchResist
finish helps your wood floor look new longer by resisting everyday
There's strength in numbers. Every Mannington hardwood floor
is constructed with five plies for optimum strength and durability.
Each ply is laid cross-grain to those above and beneath it.
With each ply reinforcing the next, and with the stongest resins
bonding all layers together, the combined result is far stronger
than a single solid piece of wood — warranted not to warp, buckle
or form gaps.
The appearance of your floor will depend on the species of tree
from which it is made. Each species has its own identifying
grain pattern, like a fingerprint or signature. The pronounced
grain of oak, for instance, would never be mistaken for the
more subtle grain of maple. Mannington offers several different
species, each offering its own distinct grain visual.
Sliced cut top faces replicate the elegant appearance of solid
wood floors and showcase a tight and uniform graining pattern.
Rotary cut top faces create a wide and bold graining pattern.
This cutting method produces the rich grain visuals displayed
in most of our collections.
Board width is crucial in how a floor will look in your home.
Perhaps you'll prefer the refined, narrow widths of a 2 ¼"
strip or 3" plank. Or perhaps the wider expanse of 5"
planks will suit your décor. Mannington offers all three board
widths for ample choice.
Our three gloss levels should be matched to the traffic you
anticipate for your floor. A high gloss finish is approporate
for low-traffic rooms such as dining rooms, living rooms, and
bedrooms. A semi-gloss finish is ideal for moderate-to-high
traffic areas such as family rooms. And a satin finish is suitable
for high-traffic areas including kitchens and dens.
The thicker the floor, the stronger the floor. And the less
likely that it wil be to warp, twist or cup. While all Mannington
Wood Floors feature 5-ply construction, they come in different
thicknesses. All of our Gold Series floors are nominal 9/16"
thick or nominal 1/2" thick. Silver and Bronze Series floors
are all nominal 3/8" thick.
The edge style of our boards is just as important as their width
and finish in establishing the character of your floor. A square
edge means boards fit flush against each other for a smooth,
traditional look. A micro bevel or full bevel edge creates an
angled effect where boards meet, to create more depth and dimension.
Our Gold, Silver and Bronze collections offer clear guidance in
selecting your floor. The Gold Series floors represent our finest and
most uniform floors. Hand-selected, they display a consistent grain,
and few knots and mineral streaks. Silver Series and Bronze Series
floors display a greater diversity in naturally occurring grain, knots
and mineral streaks.
