The superiority of Mirage flooring is due
to its exclusive P7 manufacturing process,
an extremely thorough process. Rigorous
quality control during the entire manufacturing
process guarantees that you will get the
highest quality for every strip in every box.
An exclusive Mirage innovation, Nanolinx™ is the first finishing system to use
nanotechnology with infinitely small, cross-linked nano particles. These particles make the finish more transparent than ever, so all the natural beauty of
wood can shine through. Offering superior flexibility and durability, and an
hypoallergenic and healthy finish that dirt can’t lay a finger on, Nanolinx™ is
up to 5 times more wear resistant than most other finishes on the market.
Plus added UV protection for some natural wood species delays and
reduces most of the sunshading phenomenon that causes wood to darken
and yellow over time. Semi-gloss or Cashmere.

A promising
innovative product
Mirage Engineered flooring technology is a revolutionary
step toward hardwood optimization, using 4 times less
hardwood than the conventional 3/4” [19 mm] solid strip

Perfect tongue
and groove fit
Tongues and grooves are perfectly
adjusted on all 4 sides of the strip.
This ensures remarkable uniformity
and facilitates easy installation.
The micron-V joint, on all 4 sides
of the strips, is the smallest and
most uniform eased edge in
the industry. It offers a great look
and superior performance.
Scored strip backing ensures
enhanced flexibility and improves
glue adherence.
Wear layer
Each box contains 5 assorted lengths
for the same appearance
as 3/4” solid hardwood.
The hardwood wear layer of Mirage Engineered products
