Laval, Québec, Canada, 2011/01/06 - The Avant-Guard Group is proud to announce a true revolution in the field with the arrival of its patented invention.1 CONTOUR GUARD® Total Protection is a real breath of fresh air.
In recent years, almost every hardwood floor producer has been boasting their floors have a unique protective finish. It may be a UV protection against yellowing, an antimicrobial treatment or a nanotechnology finish that protects against wear. However, no floor manufacturer had previously thought of and/or succeeded in offering "TOTAL" protection - a finish that would protect floors not only from daily wear and tear– but also from the effects of time, the environment and, of course, from the natural characteristics of wood (contraction and expansion).
A world-first patent
The Avant-Guard Group is therefore proud to announce a true revolution in the field with the arrival of its patented invention.1 CONTOUR GUARD® Total Protection is a real breath of fresh air, (AT LAST!) an innovation that provides long-term protection to hardwood floors.
Silhouette finish contains six unique components grouped together under the name CONTOUR GUARD® Total Protection
Gap protection (joints are stained) + Aqua protection (sealed on 6 sides) + Germ protection (even the joints) + Stain protection (even against permanent marker) + Wear protection (35 years) + Sun protection.
An Innovation Developed in Canada
In February 2010, following three years of research and development, the Avant-Guard Group assembled a series of equipment never before seen in the sector. They thus became the first manufacturer able to mechanically varnish and stain all six sides of every strip of wood. The entire wood surface is covered with a composite finish, unique to Silhouette, that enhances the performance and the degree of protection offered by Silhouette Hardwood Flooring.
Thanks to Contour Guard®, lovers of hardwood can now expect a floor that is easier to clean, healthier, more attractive, more resistant to scratching, better sealed against humidity and better protected from the sun’s rays! This unique UNEQUALED protection is offered exclusively by Silhouette Hardwood Flooring. Now, hardwood flooring is a high-end, long-term investment that increases the value of home.
