1. Enhancing Stability and Durability

 Positioned at the base of each board, these grooves mitigate the effects of temperature and humidity-induced expansion and contraction. This design minimizes the risk of warping or bending, ensuring the long-term structural integrity of the floor.

2. Improved Air Circulation

An important advantage of back grooves lies in their promotion of air circulation beneath the floor. Improved ventilation regulates humidity levels, prevents condensation, and reduces the likelihood of mold or mildew growth. Enhanced air circulation contributes to maintaining a healthy indoor environment within the flooring structure.

3. Simplified Installation and Maintenance

The presence of back grooves streamlines both installation procedures and ongoing maintenance. These grooves facilitate adhesive application and installation methods, ensuring a safer and more efficient installation process. Additionally, accessibility for maintenance and repairs is enhanced, resulting in minimal disruptions and simplified interventions when necessary.

4. Noise Reduction

The grooved design of the back of the floor effectively minimizes noise generation, particularly during use and walking. By incorporating back grooves, noise levels are significantly reduced, supporting sustainable and comfortable floor usage.

5. Customization for Diverse Needs

The decision to utilize back grooves should be based on specific requirements. For instance, in markets like Korea where underfloor heating is prevalent and board thickness is typically around 12mm, incorporating back grooves is essential.
