Parador Cubic Floor
Reclaimed Lumber Cubes for flooring UPDATES WILL FOLLOW...


              Reclaimed lumber is wood taken for re-use. Most reclaimed lumber comes from timbers and decking rescued from old barns, factories and warehouses. Reclaimed lumber is popular for many reasons: the wood's unique appearance, its contribution to green building,the history of the wood's origins and the wood's physical characteristics such as strength, stability and durability.It is considered that reclaimed lumber products are more stable than newly cut wood because reclaimed wood has been exposed to changes in humidity for far longer and therefore more stable, allowing them to be used with radiant heating systems.

             Parador Wooden Cubes Flooring  is made of 6X6cm wooden cubes, produced from reclaimed lumber.

STAGES :     -Reclaimed lumber is cut into 6X6cm cubes

                   -The cubes are fumed and colored to achieve the needed pattern on each face

                   -The cubes are treated (lacquering, oiling, etc.) in orded to be protected from abrasion and dirt.It is recommended to use environmental friendly products.

                   -The cubes are aligned, either by a preset design or even randomly

                   -The feature strip is fit it, to give the flooring compactness and stability(no adhesives needed)

DESIGN : The cubes� patterns allow the user to achieve various floor designs (imagination is the only   limit)

PROPERTIES : sustainability, durability, insulation.

GENERAL USE :This type of flooring is most often used in bedrooms, living-rooms or any other spaces that require flooring warmth.

Which problem does your idea solve?

The problems of high production, assembling and maintenance costs.Also the insulation problem.

How does your idea solve the problem?

-Reclaimed lumber is a wood taken for re-use (lower costs) -Having no complex joining system, makes it easy to install -No insulation is required( the wood's thickness makes it thermally efficient)

What is the benefit of your idea for the target group?

Cubes are easy to assemble(no professional installation required), easy to replace damaged areas (the cube will have 5 other clean, intact faces once the exterior face is deteriorated)

Which materials are you using and why?

Reclaimed lumber,because of its unique appearance, its contribution to green building,the history of the wood's origins and the wood's physical characteristics: strength,stability and durability.
