We guarantee top quality for our products that are produced and processed in harmony with Mother Nature. The standard of high quality of mafi products is assured by 100 years’ experience in production of massive wood and the fact that production and surface treatment take place in our own facilities. A system of permanent control prevents loss in quality of mafi products as is proven by the large number of awards (certified according to ISO 9001, ISO 14001), EMAS standard, Safety Certificate and IMS Integrated Management System).
Yet not only experience and control, but also the origin of the wood guarantees “perfect” quality, and for that reason we acquire our raw material mainly from Austria and/or Europe and North America (Canada). Last but not least, the correct time for felling is a significant criterion for the quality assurance of wood. The special merits of our Winter Wood are therefore its high resistance. Furthermore, due to the 3-layer construction and special surface treatment we can guarantee that Mafi natural wood floors are not UV-hardened, that no film forms and no wax is used!
Trendsetter of nature
Near Salzburg, in the heart of Europe, is the home of one of the most innovative floorboard manufacturers in the world. Every tree is unique and this uniqueness is reflected in our company motto “A floor like a tree”. No floor is like the other, yet each one meets the highest expectations in quality, naturalness and design. We at mafi have made it our business to start new trends in the field of natural floors. In recent years, we have developed the series: Winterholz, Special Edition, Vulcano and Domino. The naturalness, tranquility and personality of these floors is evident and is the logical alternative for those who enjoy individuality. As people develop, the demands on our natural floors have developed as well. As a result, numerous products including “Tigereiche” have been developed. All of these products have something in common- natural surfaces and the beauty of a natural product.
All good things come in threes
Excellent and permanent stability of shape is no longer an empty promise since the existence of mafi floors. The secret lies in the 3-layer construction of our floors.
- Cover layer and backing
- 5mm thick veneer in the same kind of wood
- Centre layer in conifer Optimal compensation between cover layer and backing
- Tongue and groove on all sides
- for continuous laying
The 3-layer construction of our floors not only allows for simple and fast laying but at the same time guarantees excellent stability of shape. Your mafi natural wood floor will always stay smooth and free from distortion. Furthermore, the 3-layer construction and the special surface treatment guarantee that mafi natural wood floors are not UV-hardened, that no film can form and they are without wax.
From tree to floor
"Once upon a time there was a saw mill…" - is how the story of wood processing at mafi might begin. The story of mafi wood processing began as far back as the end of the First World War when the Fillafer family started to operate its own sawmill. In Schneegattern, Upper Austria, on the edge of the largest continuous forest in Central Europe, the Kobernaußer Forest, the Fillafers spent years perfecting the production of high quality wooden ceilings and beams and decorating these with hand-carvings. From this experience it was only a short step to the production of natural wood floors.
Know-how that lives on
Nowadays the brand "mafi Natural Wood Flooring" is synonymous for oiled country-style flooring in many countries in Europe. After many years’ experience in processing solid wood at the family sawmill, Friedrich Fillafer has been producing wooden floor planks in 3-layer construction with their exceptional ecological surface finish, since 1992. Instead of the usual lacquer, a new method is used to treat the wooden floors, one that is very natural and based on oil. With the perfection of this newly developed method of production, Friedrich Fillafer has succeeded in establishing the brand “mafi Naturholzböden” as one of the main producers in the wood trade. The brand “mafi Natural Wood Flooring” has become a synonym for oiled country-style planks not only in the European Union, but also in Japan, Mexico and the USA.
