Weyerhaeuser Edge Gold™ flooring panels now feature a new fastening template to help builders work faster on the jobsite. The simplified nailing template uses pre-printed dashes – instead of symbols – to guide fastener placement. The panels also incorporate a proprietary edge seal formulation that significantly reduces edge swell. These features combine to improve cycle times and floor performance, and decrease the risk of callbacks. In addition, Weyerhaeuser has more than doubled the time period for the Edge Gold flooring no-sand guarantee, from 90 days to 200 days. Builders using Weyerhaeuser Edge Gold flooring panels can now quickly identify where to nail or screw fasteners into joists. Clear and simple dashes on each panel indicate the possible on-center spacings of underlying joists, without the need to decode
