New Hardwood Plywood Flooring

Announcing a full range of F11 Hardwood Plywood Flooring now at Plyco.

A Unique Origin Story

Every great product has a story, and our CD Grade, Structural F11 Hardwood Flooring is no exception. Sourced from the lush, sustainable plantations of Laos, this flooring is made from Eucalypt—a hardwood known for its durability and elegance. By choosing plantation-grown wood, we're not only ensuring top-notch quality but also promoting responsible forestry and environmental stewardship.

The Rising Challenge of Termites in Australia

Australia's changing climate has brought with it rising in termite activity. Warmer, drier climates result in increased termite activity on an order of magnitude greater than in cooler climates. These tiny pests are increasingly becoming a concern for Australian homeowners, where even cooler climates as far south as Tasmania are seeing growing numbers of termites causing expensive property damage. 

Manufacturing termite-resistant wood is a process that often comes with a hefty price tag. Typically, the wood undergoes a deep penetrating treatment, which not only needs to be effective but also safe for home environments. Extended curing times, regular quality checks and premium-grade chemicals add to the overall cost. Furthermore, to maintain environmental safety standards, the treatment process must be meticulously monitored and controlled, ensuring no harm to the surrounding ecosystem. With the cost of all these factors passed onto the customer, termite-resistant plywood is often a luxury for many Australians.
