FILTER UP TO 85% OF THE AIR IN YOUR HOME
Innovative technology originally developed in Danemark and patented in Sweden (Välinge) for building windows, Lauzon Flooring acquired the technology to offer wood floors that filter indoor air.
The principle is titanium dioxide molecules embedded in the floor finish which, activated by light, decompose the toxins (VOCs) contained in the air into healthy molecules (H2O / CO2), thus making your indoor air up to 85% purer.
PURE GENIUS is included on all Designer Series products and is available as an option on most Lauzon Flooring products.

RESPECT OF THE FOREST
Development focused on growing young shoots, applying the most stringent environmental standards, selective harvesting and other noble processes are at the heart of the Lauzon culture. For the best of nature, of the nearly two million acres of forest it exploits, Lauzon confers its will to do things neatly, from the forest to the floor.
Choosing a Lauzon floor means contributing to the preservation of natural resources for generations to come. All processed wood, whether it is Canadian or imported, comes from forests managed according to the strictest practices of sustainable development. ISO 14001 certified, Lauzon’s Environmental Management practices include the assessment of the ecological impact combined with constant actions to improve its environmental performance.
OPTIMIZE RAW MATERIAL
Thanks to a state-of-the-art sawmill, Lauzon precisely adjusts its production according to demand to maximize the processing of each block used. With an equal amount of wood, compared to the industry average, its eco-responsible process allows it to make more slats, to the delight of the earth.
RECYCLE AND REUSE
Anxious to reduce its environmental footprint as much as possible, Lauzon has adopted a rigorous Zero Waste policy. Lauzon thus recovers all its wood residues in order to make it its main source of energy to feed its dryers and heat its factories or turn them into carbon-based fuel for pellet stoves.
