Engineered wood is MUCH stronger, eliminating natural splits along the grain. Strength tests are shocking – a standard ¾" LP SmartFloor in a 10'x20' barn has a 40,000-pound live load rating – about five times what most housing codes require.
Engineered wood also STAYS stronger. SmartFloor has world-class resistance to moisture, termites and fungus. To a termite, that heavy plank floor that looks so beefy is nothing but a bigger meal.
Would you build a bridge today without engineering it? Engineered wood is bringing the same provable strength to building construction.
