stable chateau planks
for optical width and spaciousness
Extraordinary, imposing, one statement – the wide planks from mafi offer room-length dimensions with optimal stability. The floor-length planks are being used more and more frequently. Large-scale rooms look even more spacious and impressive due to the plank flooring, and smaller living objects are optically enlarged.
The chateau planks with their generous appearance will provide charm to any room and provide additional visual depth. In old buildings, they lend a fitting, historical character. Whether in the private living area or in the heavily used area, there’s always a varied but harmonious surface appearance.
Various widths can be optionally combined with each other and provide unique and representative pieces as a stylistic device. But what aspects have to be considered when it comes to wide planks? What laying directions are there? And how do solid floors differ from the symmetrical plank structure of mafi?
stylistic devices for stunning rooms
Floor-length planks embody a very special ambience. A board width of up to 30 cm ensures an enormous width and makes every room appear even larger. mafi wide planks are used from modern to rustic room concepts and are suitable for all architectural concepts that strive for generous room features.
The extraordinary width of chateau planks often leads to a problem: instability. Thanks to mafi’s three-symmetrical plank structure, which ensures the highest quality and optimum stability, any project can be implemented without any difficulty whatsoever. The top layer and the reserve are made of the same wood, which has been subjected to the same thermal treatment. The multi-layer three-layer structure guarantees that, despite the extreme widths, the movement of the wood is enormously reduced and the wide planks are safe from warping.
wide planks from mafi
durable and dimensionally stable
mafi wide planks are a statement for every room. The authentic and charming character of the wood is underpinned by the lengths of 4000 or 5000 mm. The width of the board varies. Depending on the hardwood or softwood, the thickness is 19 or 21 mm. The extreme dimensions are achieved through the symmetrical plank structure by mafi. With the help of the symmetrical 3-layer structure of the plank, the floor is extremely stable and can also be easily installed on top of underfloor heating. The resulting symmetry reduces the swelling and shrinking behavior of wood enormously and the formation of joints is greatly reduced. For this reason, mafi natural wood floors are ideal for laying on underfloor heating.
Sustainability: Most of the time, only the wood from the wide, central area of the tree trunk is used for the stable chateau planks. However, mafi has discovered an ecological solution to manage resources sustainably. On the one hand, laying with mixed widths creates a charming unique piece, and on the other hand, the wide planks are produced sustainably. This form of material application is also the most original. In the past, the tree was also used in its entirety and thus processed as a floor with different widths.
Even if you decide against laying with mixed widths, mafi ensures sustainability. In addition to wide planks, narrower planks are also produced from the same tree, and any residual material is ultimately processed into high-quality wood pellets.
