Describe the lamination process for Rockland oak laminated trail
The lamination process begins by drying our lumber to the precise moisture content via a two-step procedure. Once dry, the boards are ripped into sticks and sent into our rigorous inspection process. By using state of the art laser imaging equipment and trained quality control personnel, defects in the wood are detected and cut out of the sticks. Connections are cut at the end of each stick to allow for joining to create continuous boards. The sticks receive melamine glue and are placed together by hand following detailed requirements to assure the strongest possible floor. Once in place they are feed into a press which dries the glue via radio-frequency heating. The newly formed boards are then cut to the OEM specification and finished on all sides. Once the floor passes our demanding testing and final inspection, it receives the Rockland brand, which signifies our seal of approval.
