Bjelin’s hardened wood range won the Best of NeoCon 2023 Award in the Hard-Surface Flooring: Natural Materials category. The Scandinavian-designed floors were recognized for their “excellence and innovation” at NeoCon’s event in Chicago, Illinois.
“We’re thrilled to win this prestigious award,” said Zach Adams, general manager of Bjelin U.S. “This is a testament that our hardened wood flooring range is one of a kind. Made from high-quality European wood, these floors are durable, beautifully designed, and a more sustainable option.”
Bjelin’s hardened wood flooring range features the patented technologies, Woodura® and 5G® Dry™, developed in-house by sister company Välinge Innovation. Woodura® is a surface technology that the company says ensures the floors are three times stronger than engineered wood floors while only a tenth of wood is needed.
The company also says its leakproof 5G® Dry™ floor locking system ensures a fast, easy, and durable installation without glue or nails. A watertight joint prevents water from seeping through the panels and damaging the subfloor. Bjelin’s range is provided in Scandinavian-influenced colors, from deep and dark browns inspired by the forests, to light white synonymous with long, bright summer days.
