In BauBuche Panel, BauBuche creates new possibilities for laminated veneer lumber with top-quality aesthetics and unmatched strength. The veneer layers are vertical to the panel surface. This material is extremely durable and easy to clean, which makes it particularly suitable for tabletops, desks, ceiling and wall panelling, stairs and elegant timber floors. BauBuche Panels can be machined like solid hardwood or hardwood boards. Thanks to their attractive veneer layer pattern, the panels are ideal for exposed applications, and the sanded surfaces allow for easy coating.

Decospan – European Flooring Designs
Decospan has launched a number of flooring collections that are innovative and trend-setting in the industry. Each new collection has met the same basic requirements: innovative, qualitative and environmentally aware. Distributed by select Hardwoods Specialty Products.
- Par-ky is multi-layer parquet, which combines the warmth and unique design of real wood with the advantages of laminate. Par-ky is as easy to install and maintain as laminate flooring. Yet there is a big difference: the top layer of Par-ky is real wood, and not an imitation print as with laminate. What you see and what you feel is natural wood, with high impact resistance from its high-density wood core and real wood veneer top layer finished with 8 layers of wear resistant lacquer and using the Uniclic fastening system. There are no 2 identical trees and therefore each board is unique. That is exactly what makes the difference in your home, office or shop.
- Cabbani bridges the warmth and beauty of high-quality European oak parquet flooring with contemporary architecture. Thanks to the “a la carte system”, you can design your dream fully customized wooden floor in 5 easy steps in a wide range of stylish and attractive colours. An engineered wooden floor made in France with European Oak and a tongue and groove system for glued down installation. It’s French production guarantees trendy products with respect for nature and the utmost care for quality.
- Cabbani di Lorenzo is a special, high-end collection of the Cabbani brand, in which the oak planks undergo up to ten successive treatments. This results in an authenticity that - at best - can only be compared to the deep red colour of well-aged wine, an antique-looking floor with the quality and guarantee of a new ‘made in France’ floor.

Laminate surfaces with InCopper™ protection – another first for Prism TFL
Introduced by ARAUCO, InCopper™ is a proprietary antimicrobial technology now incorporated in PRISM TFL panels. InCopper uses a proprietary formulation of copper salts developed to actively protect the Prism panel surface against bacteria, fungi and mold that can cause stains and odor. InCopper antimicrobial technology will be standard in all Prism TFL exclusive designs starting in early 2019 in the United States, and offered as an option for commodities. In Canada, it will be available later in 2019, pending registration. Available at HD Expo through Hardwoods Specialty Products and Rugby Architectural Building Products.
Prism TFL with InCopper protection is perfect for interiors where humid conditions or high traffic flow are likely to expose the surface of the panel to harmful microbes.. Ideal applications include offices, hospitals, healthcare facilities, restaurants, school, kitchens, closets or bathrooms.
InCopper protects Prism TFL during the entire life of the panel surface by actively and continuously eliminating bacteria, mold, fungi, and parasites. More reasons to love your Prism TFL laminates!
