Flooring lamellas

Consistent and Resource-Efficient

Danzer offers decorative deck layer for engineered flooring (also referred to as wear layer) from European, North American and African hardwood and softwood species. Several years ago Danzer introduced a new and efficient way to manufacture lamellas that fulfilled a long-held wish of the hardwood flooring industry. The precious surface layers for engineered wood flooring can now be sliced with little to no waste; in the past, they were sawn, resulting in raw material losses of up to one-third. Danzer’s patent-protected proprietary slicers produce a high-quality sliced lamella that can replace sawn lamellas in many applications.

With its industrial focus, Danzer can offer large volumes of consistent product. Customers benefit from our procurement network that allows for fast reaction times and swift adjustments to changing market requirements for large volumes of consistent product, as well as smaller orders for projects and special requests. The result is lower costs and easier buying, less working capital needed—and a better ability to compete.

Why Buy From Danzer?

Industrial expertise

Our approach to the production of lamellas is unique, and one that’s valued by industrial producers of engineered flooring. We leverage our extensive background and expertise as a volume producer of sliced decorative veneer to the production of sliced lamellas, and we have invested significantly in patented technology to assure consistent, repeatable processes.

Consistency

Product quality and sorting consistency, historically an industry challenge, has been successfully addressed by Danzer. We bring our vast experience in veneer and lumber production to lamella production to attain the levels of consistency that allow customers to stay focused on their core business.

Connections

Danzer has the largest network of buyers of high-end hardwood logs in North America and Europe, so we’re able to reliably source the raw material needed to make all our wood products, including sliced lamellas. We’re able to fulfill small, short-lead time requests by engineered-flooring manufacturers, allowing them to meet the needs of niche market segments (e.g. individual projects) and grow their business.

Support

Using sliced lamellas instead of sawn lamellas requires a partner with extensive knowledge of the flooring manufacturing process; Danzer is such a partner. In building productive, long-term manufacturer-to-manufacturer relationships, we work collaboratively to understand your procurement needs and product specifications. We then create a procurement and production plan that ensures the sliced flooring lamellas supply customers can count on.

In the highly competitive engineered-flooring industry, it’s increasingly advantageous to source smaller batches of specific products to meet the needs of niche markets. Because of our vast procurement network and efficient processes, Danzer customers can readily and economically meet growing demand for specialized sliced lamellas.

Less working capital

Customers appreciate that Danzer deliveries precisely meet their manufacturing requirements. With our exceptionally reliable supplies, less byproduct needs to be inventoried and less safety stock of raw material is necessary, requiring less working capital on the part of the manufacturer.
