Innovation in Hardboard for Flooring Underlay

LION Floor TM is the first hardboard panel to be designed and manufactured specifically for the flooring industry.

At Finnish Fibreboards we offer superior LIONTM branded products which the flooring industry can depend upon. Products which meet and overcome the challenges faced by businesses as budgets are squeezed and limited resources are high on the agenda.

We have been producing hardboards since the 1930s and are extremely proud of our heritage. By using LIONTM branded hardboards, you can be assured that you are using one of the best and most sustainable hardboards produced.

LION FloorTM has been specifically designed to take into consideration the exacting requirements of the flooring industry, and is fully compliant with CFA Guidance and BS8203:2017 code of practice for use as a fabricated underlay prior to the installation of resilient floor coverings.

LION FloorTM is a viable alternative to plywood – with many advantages over some plywood’s.  It is available in a range of different size options – not just 8×4 and 4×2 like most plywood’s. LION FloorTM offers a cost effective alternative to a flooring grade plywood meeting the requirements of BS8203; very important in times when budgets are being squeezed.

Due to its higher density than plywood, LION FloorTM is able to withstand higher point loads than many plywood’s

LION FloorTM is supplied as a pre-conditioned board, saving time when on site. BS8203:2017 and the CFA guide to contract flooring both give details on how fabricated underlays should be installed, but using a pre-conditioned product reduces installation time and helps to ensure that you are using a stable product.

LION FloorTM is a fully engineered board, and unlike the majority of plywood’s available on the market, we can guarantee that our product will not have any core gaps or veneer overlaps.
