Involve us already in the design phase
A solid hardwood floor is an investment, that must last for many years and to ensure an optimal solution, there are many factors that should be taken into consideration. It applies from design, installation and subsequently maintenance.
With the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge and the Architects Declare movement gaining ground, working towards a net zero carbon future is a challenge we all face. At Junckers, our commitment to you is to provide fully certified and accredited products – flooring that is low in embodied carbon, sustainable, manufactured with care and attention to the environment around us, made to last for generations.
Solid hardwood floors - The best for the environment
Junckers solid hardwood floors are not only beautiful to behold, they also leave you with a clear conscience. Besides being responsibly produced with care for the environment and forestry, choosing a hardwood floor is the natural choice.
This means that a solid hardwood floor from Junckers is made from 100% hardwood and is therefore not composed of multiple layers containing substantial amounts of glue and resins. This makes for a completely natural material that will age with grace and last for generations, since a hardwood floor can be sanded and maintained repeatedly.
All our timber comes from managed forests and we are Junckers is PEFC™ and FSC® certified. Our floors are BREEAM A+ rated. Our environmental practices are subject to external audit.
EPD - environmental product declaration
Sustainability has always been a focal point at Junckers, and we know from consultants, developers and architects how important it is to provide transparency and traceability in relation to materials.
Therefore, we have completed EPD's which evaluate the environmental impact of our solid hardwood floors and by this we can contribute to simplifying the work process in the selection of floors for a building to be sustainability certified.
Junckers is a CO2 neutral company
Despite Junckers using a considerable amount of energy to dry and process the timber, the company produces more energy than it uses. The production’s bi-products such as bark, wood-chips and sawdust are delivered to a local power-plant, which in turn provides electricity and steam to Junckers and electricity and heat to the public Danish energy-grid.
As wood is considered CO2-neutral material and because Junckers generates more energy than the business itself can consume, the energy surplus is used to produce CO2-neutral electricity, which benefits society. That makes Junckers a CO2-neutral company!
Professional advice for the entire project
Trust and advice from your floor manufacturer is an important factor and as an architect, it is always important to have your floor manufacturer with you from the planning phase, so that you get a solution that takes into account both design and function in large and small projects.
There are many factors that come into play when installing a solid wood floor. Desires and needs are different from task to task. Therefore, it is important that you get the right advice already when planning the project. By thinking of all aspects from the start, you get the optimal solution based on the prerequisites that lie in the project.
Our technical department offers solutions to ensure every installation goes to plan. Be it versatile installation methods, levelling systems, acoustic measures for multi occupancy buildings and underfloor heating
