6 WOOD - A NATURAL RAW MATERIAL

7 We believe it is important to use nature’s resources in the smartest way possible. Our wood floors are examples of how it is possible to use resources efficiently, while still retaining the same character as that of a solid wood floor. Through our own production of wood floors in Anderstorp, we have full control over our products and the raw materials used. We began our investment in the future with thin wood floors 30 years ago, because even back then it was already a modern and smart construction. More efficient material utilization and better properties are now more relevant than ever. The investments we have made in recent years in increased automation and digitization have led to both energy efficiency and even better use of the raw material. Our Maxwood floors are now also Nordic Swan Ecolabelled. It shows that our floors meet tough, life-cycle-based requirements. For example, we use 100% renewable electricity in our manufacturing process and our heating comes from the wood shavings that are left over from the manufacturing process. In our part of Sweden (Småland), when it comes to resources, we are good at being frugal and the more efficiently we can manufacture our floors, the fewer resources are used. At our factory in Anderstorp, together with knowledgeable and experienced staff, we have the opportunity to explore how we can constantly become a little better, a little more efficient and a save just a few more resources. At the same time, we also keep our sights on the needs and challenges of the future. With 70 years’ experience behind us, going forward, we continue to be one of the market’s leading flooring suppliers. At Golvabia, we believe that wood floors that perform, but use nature’s resources efficiently, are the future of flooring! 30 yeras in golvabia’s wood floor factory

8 WOOD - A NATURAL RAW MATERIAL HELPS Our floo conserve natures RESOURCES

9 oring Thin veneer with all the beautiful characteristics that comes with real wood. Our wood floors have a beautiful and natural luster that provides a soft and inviting feel. Each board has acquired its appearance from the specific conditions present where the tree grew. Location, weather, and soil make the wood unique, much like a fine wine! To efficiently and sustainably utilize the tree, we use veneer. Veneer consists of thin layers of wood cut from the finest trees and is as visually appealing and substantial as a solid floor plank. Veneer was invented in ancient Egypt, a country with limited forest resources. For those people, wood was a precious resource used sparingly and wisely. By using veneer in our floors, we extract the maximum possible material from each tree, resulting in more flooring and thus conserving valuable resources in nature. Since 2020, our popular Maxwood series is also Nordic Eco labeled. a nordic eco labeled floor meets the following requirements: • Has a high proportion of renewable and/or recycled materials. • Meets strict requirements for health and environmentally hazardous substances. • Guarantees low emissions and a good indoor environment. • Has been manufactured efficiently in terms of energy. • Exhibits good durability NORDIC SWAN ECOLABEL

10 TRADITIONAL WOOD FLOORS GOLVABIA’S THIN FLOORING WITH VENEER We reach further with thin wood flooring The raw material from the forest is sawn into planks and is enough for 1 m2. (10 SF). The forest is rapidly beeing hollowed out and growing new trees is time consuming. The raw material from the forest is cut into veneer and is enough for 8 m2 (85 SF) of Golvabia wood flooring. This method leavs more trees for continued growth and thereby saves on natures valuable resources.

11 8 1 m2 m2 To obtain a stable and durable floor, we use a High Density Fiberboard (HDF) for the middle layer. This is manufactured by utilizing waste material from trees and timber production. The entire manufacturing process becomes a low-resource process where even the waste is transformed into beautiful new floors. This construction also makes the floor very durable. In tests where a hard steel ball is dropped on the floor, you can clearly see the advantages of the thin wood layer in combination with the HDF core. The thin layer has better resistance and the floor is twice as hard as traditional wood floors, but still with warmth and comfort. The steel ball shows the strength of thin wood flooring. PROVIDES PROVIDES Thick wood layer = big imprint Thin layer of wood = small imprint

12 Which wood and colour is right for you? Oak is the most popular choice for wood flooring. The surface is often stained in white or grey. Here you can choose according to your own taste and preference. Darker floors create a rich, cosy and luxurious look, but may require more frequent cleaning, as dirt and dust tend to be a little more visible on a dark surface. If you want to create a spacious feel, choose a natural white floor or white stained ash. If you want to play it safe, natural oak is always right. Should I choose a 3-Strip or plank look? The plank look often provides a calmer and more pleasant room than a room with classic 3-Strip floor. In the plank floors or 1-Strip as it is also called, you can choose between two grades, Natural and Unique. Natural is a calm and harmonious feel while Unique provides a lively and natural feel. The classic 3-Strip consists of smaller strips that are put together to create a harmonious pattern. The 3-Strip is often a slightly cheaper option than plank flooring. What gives Maxwood its elegant appearance? The wood veneer for Maxwood is carefully selected from sustainably managed European forests. Color and grain are chosen to give the floor a harmonious appearance. In a larger room, the natural appearance in both color and grain comes out better in a larger board. What is the current trend? If you want something that is right on trend, then the herringbone pattern is it. Patterned floors have been around for a long time but are now trendier than ever. Herringbone patterns are perfectly suited to both older and modern interiors. This is a classic that has been manufactured for a long time, Maxwood Jazz is available in four variants: Walnut, Oak Natural, Oak Raw and Oak Mist. Best of all - No glue is needed and the simple click system makes it easy to lay. Why Maxwood? Maxwood is a good option in homes where you want a genuine, wood floor with natural beauty and comfort, without sacrificing anything in terms of durability and longevity. The basis of the durability is the core, composed of HDF, which is made from tightly compressed wood fibers that are much harder than even the hardest type of wood. The hardness provides a form-stable base so that we can use a stronger varnish on the floor than was previously possible. The result is still a natural real wood floor, but with better properties. Maxwood is 10 mm (3/8”) thick, and with the smart click joint, it is very easy to lay. Comfort is further improved with a built-in sound dampening layer of cork. How to care for a wood floor. This is best done by using as little water as possible when cleaning. Dry mop or vacuum the floor weekly and only wet mop the floor when necessary. Use cleaning products from Bona, which have been specially developed for use on wood floors. The important thing is not to use too much water, wring out the cloth or mop properly before use! How does a wood floor age? We would like to say that wood floors age with charm. It will darken and mature beautifully. A wood floor is meant to be used and acquires a beautiful patina over the years. Set the style with an elegant wood floor for any project. The flooring you choose sets the feel for the entire home. Many of our customers are looking for a coherent look and therefore choose the same flooring in the living room and kitchen, this gives the home a sleek and refined feel.

48 Maxwear – our most practical floor. Where is Maxwear well-suited to? Maxwear is a good option for homes with children and pets. In this case, durable floors are often a necessity and with Maxwear's properties, you also get comfort and a low noise level in the bargain. The joints are also protectively impregnated to better resist water. Maxwear is a floor that is perfectly suited to the most vulnerable rooms in the house: the kitchen and hall. What different designs are there? It is primarily a plank pattern and we start with the beautiful grain of oak. From there, you choose among a variety of color tones ranging from light to dark and then there are different levels of how rustic the floor looks. Rustic patterns such as Oak Dusk, to a more calm and uniform floor like Oak Raw. There are also beautiful stone patterns in a wider format. What makes Maxwear special? It is the soft feeling you experience when you walk on the floor. A combination of the surface layer of soft LVT and the cork back brings out the best feeling, not least when walking barefoot. The result is a floor with unique properties, suitable in both demanding home environments and tough object oriented environments. The floor is classified with wear resistance 33, which makes it suitable for tough environments, like restaurants and shops. Thanks to the cork on the back, you get a quiet and comfortable floor, something that is particularly important in the aforementioned environments. Do you want to increase comfort? Then lay our cork underlay as a base! How do you care for Maxwear? It is very easy to care for. Dry mop or vacuum the floor weekly and only wet mop the floor when necessary. Use cleaning products from a manufacturer such as Bona, which have been specially developed for use on floors. The important thing is not to use too much water and wring out the cloth properly before use! Why should I choose Maxwear?

62 The direction of the floor Decide which direction the floor should be laid. It is most common to lay the floor in the longitudinal direction of the room. In larger rooms, you can lay wider planks to reinforce the impression of the room's size. Expansion joint How much space should be left against the wall? Wood is a natural material that moves along with changes in humidity, therefore you must have an expansion joint against walls and fixed objects. Leave an expansion joint of 1 mm per meter of floor width, but at least 8 mm, around the entire floor and fixed objects such as stairs, pipes, thresholds and stoves. This is so that the floor can move freely during seasonal changes. Floating between rooms When laying floating floors through complex areas, there is a risk that the floor will get stuck or have difficulty moving and you will then experience cracks in the floor. Therefore, we recommend that expansion joints are laid between the rooms so that the floor can move freely. For more information, see our detailed installation instructions on the website. Re-sandable No, our floors have a 0.6 mm layer of real wood that does not need to be re-sanded. The development of durable varnishes for the surface has meant that modern wood floors last a very long time before re-sanding would be an option. How do you know you will still want to keep the same floor when it comes time to re-sand it after 25-30 years? Installation tips In our Digital Showroom at golvabia.se, you can test the different types yourself. Type A Type B TIP! In square rooms: follow the incoming light. In rectangular rooms: follow the longitudinal direction of the room.

Just one click and the plank is in place - no tools are needed. Simple laying means that everyone gets perfect results quickly and easily! Our wood and vinyl floors have a warm and pleasant feeling even without underfloor heating, but underfloor heating is often used for warmth or other reasons. Our floors work well with underfloor heating and conduct heat efficiently because they are not that thick. Detailed instructions for installing underfloor heating can be found on our website. Underfloor heating for absolute comfort Natural cork Cork comes from the bark of the cork tree. Cork has many good properties and is used for everything from wine corks to building materials. The bark is harvested every nine years without damaging the tree. In the intervening years, it continues to absorb carbon dioxide and is an important part in the preservation of biodiversity in the Mediterranean area, where the cork tree grows. Maxwood and Maxwear have an integrated cork backing. You can also buy underlay cork on a roll. Cork is warm, soft and is an unbeatable layer that makes it comfortable to stand and walk on. UNDERLAY CORK provides excellent acoustic properties and a solid feel for your wood floor. Choose between pure natural cork or rubber cork, which is a mixture of the two natural materials cork and rubber that provides even better acoustic properties.
