Delmege, providers of a wide range of building and interior products, launched solid hardwood flooring by Junkers Denmark, a world renowned Danish company specialising in timber flooring.
The new flooring was launched amidst a gathering of eminent Sri Lankan architects, and representatives of Delmege Forsyth and Junckers. A special presentation about Junckers was conducted for those present by Henrik Lundby Petersen, Export Manager – Junckers. Suresh Kumar Mansukhani, Country Manager of the Indian Subcontinent of Junckers also spoke on the product, the Company and its presence in the Indian Subcontinent.
Solid hardwood flooring systems by Junckers offers an impressive range of pre-finished hardwood flooring in various thicknesses, styles, grades and finishes along with a large palette of colours allowing great scope for creativity, individual solutions and unconventional combinations making innovative details possible. All timber at Junckers including Oak, Beech or Ash are sourced from managed forests in Denmark which reflects Junckers attitude towards sustainable forestry and felling policy.
Suitable for all climatic conditions with an eight percent moisture content, Junckers pre-finished flooring requires no surface treatment after installation, contributing to a very clean and accelerated installation. This flooring system can be either glued or nailed and also installed through the unique Junckers Clip system. Irrespective of the method of installation Junckers flooring enables uniform expansion and contraction.
“Junckers have been producing flooring since 1932 and today produce around 1.5 million square meters of solid wood in different thicknesses every year. We sell our flooring worldwide through subsidiaries in seven countries and distributors / agents in 40 countries, and have been in Asia for 35 years and in India alone for 15 years,” stated Henrik Petersen.
“We have used this product in India for the last 15 years. India has the same climatic conditions as Sri Lanka but it works in any climate and a wet mop is all that is required for maintenance,” said Suresh Kumar of Junckers.
“Armed with FSC and PEFC certifications for wooden materials and ISO 14001, we at Junckers make sure that minimum resources and energy is used in the process of production. With the preservation of CO2 within the timber even after installation, we ensure that the wood is still a living material so that you can consider your floor a piece of nature in your house”, stated Petersen also adding that the wood waste from the company’s plants is reused as wooden chips for an energy plant, thus economising on energy.
“We represent global manufacturers and source interior and specialist building products from renowned international companies,” stated Nilantha Fernando, Director/CEO Delmege. “Therefore, we are proud to partner with Junckers with a 80 year track record and with their support we are confident that we can supply and install this timber flooring to the satisfaction of our customers.”
