Tradesmen are full of praise for UPM ProFi Deck too: "It's easy to process the decking boards with conventional woodworking tools such as saws, drills and power screwdrivers," says the carpenter in charge of the Munich kindergarten deck.
There is no need for grinding, staining or varnishing, or the regular repeat surface treatments required over time. Therefore, the result is very low maintenance needs coupled with substantial cost savings for the owners of the Munich kindergarten.
UPM ProFi Deck does not need other maintenance than periodical cleaning with a pressure hose or normal hose and brush. The flooring retains its fabulous appearance for years without "greying". The boards are virtually free of lignin, the natural wood molecule that turns grey when exposed to sunlight.
Speaking on behalf of all the children in her care and their parents, Susanne Knott, the head of the kindergarten on Karl-Erb-Weg, is thrilled with the results: "This new floor keeps the little fingers and feet of the children safe from knotholes and splinters. The infants can crawl and the older children can run around barefoot to their hearts' content without any risk of injury."
