RELEASE: Mannington expands Hardwood Flooring linefor Spring home improvement season
Mannington, an acknowledged industry leader in hardwood flooring continues its quest to deliver what today’s consumers want—high quality engineered wood flooring created with beauty, durability, and a commitment to environmental responsibility. 3 new patterns (a total of 7 SKUS) will be added to Mannington’s acclaimed Hand-crafted collections; and the American Classics collection gets a technology upgrade with the addition of LockSolid™. All will arrive at Mannington hardwood retailers starting in March 2012.
Hand-Crafted Collection—3 Patterns, 7 SKUS
- A rustic wood cabin that once sat upon a hillside served as the inspiration for Mountain View Hickory. Artisan hand-scraping and hand-staining; and dramatic graining give this 5” width plank flooring its distinct character and realistic texture. Mountain View Hickory is available in three warm colors: Fawn, Bark and Autumn.
- Completely natural and neutral, Hayworth represents the resurgence of a classic European look but it’s made right here in the USA. Wire brushing, white washing and variable sanding create subtle variations from board-to-board creating 5” width planks so neutral they blend with any interior, yet, remain quite eye-catching. Hayworth comes in one gorgeous hue—Platinum.
- Global style comes home to roost in Mayan Pecan. The hand-crafting of this exotic species includes a soft scrape and unique staining process that yields board-to-board variations and real visual depth within each board. From tight knot holes to dramatic graining, Mayan Pecan wood is both beautiful and plentiful and in keeping with Mannington’s pledge to environmental responsibility. This 5” width plank is available in three colors: Clove, Cumin and Cocoa.
American Classics Collection—1 Pattern, 14 SKUS
- Combine design-leading hues from our best-selling hardwood collection with a new easier-to-install profile and what do you get? American Hardwoods, featuring LockSolid™ technology for faster, easier installation! Choose from a traditional 3/8” tongue and groove, a ¾” engineered offering, or this new floating/locking system. Mix-and-match all three for different applications within the home with matching stains throughout. American Hardwoods comes in 14 hues of Oak, Maple, Hickory and Walnut.
Like all Mannington engineered hardwood flooring, the Hand-Crafted and American Classics Collections offer distinct advantages over other types of hardwood floors. Engineered hardwood flooring construction is far stronger than a single piece of solid wood and is more structurally sound—it won’t buckle, gap, cup or twist. It can be installed below grade and direct to concrete—solid wood floors cannot.
Engineered wood floors use half as many trees as solid wood floors and faster-growing, renewable wood is used for inner piles. Mannington factories are FSC® Chain of Custody certified and mill waste is reused for energy. Most Mannington hardwood products are FloorScore certified and all meet-or exceed-the formaldehyde levels set forth in CARB phase 2 (the most stringent emissions laws in the world); plus, only no-VOC water-based finishes are used.
