ter Hürne floors for your healthy living environment
We create products that you come into contact with every day. They are an important part of your home. Our floors support the sense that you and your loved ones are in good hands. A healthy living environment is important in ensuring things stay that way.
At ter Hürne, we have a responsibility towards you for a healthy living environment. As such, we take it upon ourselves to equip our floors with the best possible characteristics to offer you precisely that: a healthy living environment.
DID YOU KNOW?
Sick building syndrome
Do you feel restless and weighed down? Do you have headaches throughout the day?
It could be a case of sick building syndrome, which happens if we spend too much time indoors. Wall coverings, furniture and the floor have a constant effect on us. What we inhale is what these products have previously exhaled. We are talking about emissions here. If products contain pollutants, these evaporate over time and are released into the indoor air. Improvements in building insulation reduce the exchange between internal and external air. The pollutants remain in the room for longer.
Do you also spend a lot of time at home?
Then look for materials that are low in emissions.
The materials we use make it possible
The healthy centrepiece of the floor is its compressed baseboard made from timber fibres. This is stabilised on the underside by a stabilising layer also made from wood fibres. The surface of the Dureco floor consists of resin, into which we mix the natural mineral corundum.
Dureco makes a sustainable contribution to a better carbon footprint in the same way as engineered hardwood flooring made from natural wood. One cubic metre of wood stores one tonne of CO². That helps to reduce the CO² levels in our atmosphere. Some of the wood in the baseboards comes from storm-damaged trees. These are thus put to good use and also continue to store CO².

More than just clean
So your floor is more than clean.
OUR CONTRIBUTION TO YOUR HEALTHY HOME ENVIRONMENT

You come into close contact with your ter Hürne floor every day. Want it to be healthy and sustainable for you and your environment? Do you need to feel safe?
So do we!
To ensure safety, we are building on third-party assessments.
These independent institutions are the warranty of our products:
Because we need nature – and not the other way round
DID YOU KNOW?
Trees are natural climate protectors
Trees are important for our climate. Their trees produce the oxygen that is essential to life. And they absorb and bind the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO₂) from the air. Every cubic metre of wood stores one tonne of CO². This CO² even remains bound if a construction material is made from the wood, such as a floor covering for example.
Building with wood thus helps to support the climate.
