SWISS KRONO Installation

21.09.2016 | Before installing laminate flooring, it’s helpful to keep a few basic facts in mind: the dimensions and any special characteristics of the room, available tools and materials, and the preferred thickness and structure of the flooring. You start with the #underlayment.

21.09.2016 | Various underlayment materials are available for meeting different requirements. On mineral substrates, it’s essential to spread a vapour barrier before installing underlayments to insulate against impact sound and reflected walking noise. This is the basis for laying the actual laminate flooring using the “cut-and-clic” method.

SWISS KRONO Eco-Friendly Engineered Wood

17.06.2016 | In early March 2016, the world’s longest OSB board – measuring an astounding 17-and-a-half metres – was manufactured at SWISS KRONO in Heiligengrabe. The first delivery was transported by a special convoy to Erne AG Holzbau in Stein, Switzerland. The customer had ordered the extra-long OSB boards for a new school that is being built in Nuremberg. Over the course of only three weeks, the Swiss timber construction specialist turned them into 86 prefabricated modules to serve as temporary classrooms. In each module, three OSB Longboards were used for the floor and ceiling.

In mid-May the 86 modules were taken to Bavaria’s second-largest city and installed at the Maria Ward School for girls to temporarily accommodate the students while it is being torn down and completely rebuilt, a project that will take four to five years to complete.
