Tongue & Groove Ply Flooring is most commonly used in building and construction as a substrate flooring - to be laid directly onto floor joists, with an alternative product such as timber or engineered floor boards, tiles, carpet etc., to be laid on top. It is both safe and reliable when used in commercial and industrial building, and is easily designed to resist the high loading criteria required by the building codes. Its resilience and strength have been utilised in storage decks, truck floors, and flooring in sporting compleses and agricultural buildings.

Plywood flooring systems are a cost effective alternative to suspended floors in such applications

Tongue & Groove Ply Flooring is an alternative to particle board flooring (commonly known as 'orangetongue')

Particleboard Flooring is a well-established and well performed product in the Australian home and building industry. This wide use and acceptance has led to an increasing number of enquiries from engineers, architects and designers about Particleboard Flooring for commercial and industrial applications.

Particleboard Flooring provides major cost savings through its economy and through lighter construction allowing reduced foundation cost. Installation times are reduced since dry trades only are involved. Particleboard floors are also more comfortable for people standing for long periods and offer better wearing characteristics than some other flooring materials for wheeled traffic (especially small wheels) because of the dense surface layer.
