Consider the facts:
- Most of our
products use the biggest wear layer( the top layer of wood flooring exposed to the traffic) in the industry - 5/8” solid wood. Czar Floors parquet products are available in full 3/4" or 3/8" solid wood thickness.
Other manufacturers use 5/16” or as thin as 1/16"
veneers glued to a plywood backer.
The thickness of the wear layer can significantly affect durability of the floor. When the finish wears out, you only have one sanding cycle at best. We are making floors that will withstand normal household traffic for many years.
- Czar Floors uses precise CNC (Computer Numerical Control) routing machines to cut the wood. This method eliminates typical for laser-cut process burned wood edges, allows for a perfect fit of the wood pieces in the inlay. Clean, unburned sides of the wood pieces in inlay allow for a good adhesion between the pieces as well as to the plywood backer.
- Largest in the industry selection of the original designs. Great variety of available standard sizes. Many inlays are available in stock for an immediate delivery.
- Our products are hand-assembled by individuals who have mastered the craftsmanship of woodworking using proprietary glue, specially designed tools and technologies.
- Czar Floors has the most professional , skilled team of the designers and engineers to meet any challenge. This expertise allows us to successfully design and produce unique, beautiful floors around the globe. Czar Floors designs received numerous awards for its unique work.
We take pride in our work and that pride is reflected in every product that leaves our facility.
We do not use stains to create inlay designs. Every pattern is made up from different wood species, carefully matched by the designer to achieve the desired color effect. From the picture below, you can see the edge of the B5 border. Top wood layer has different woods cut and inlaid to form a pattern. It is mounted on the plywood backer for 3/4" thick product.

If ordered with parquet - square and rectangular medallions can be scaled to match parquet tile sizes.
Most 60" and 70" medallions are made as a single piece to eliminate the seems. Larger inlays may come in several segments. All large inlays pre assembled at the factory to verify precise fit of the pieces.
