SmartPlank, a Brookfield, Wis.-based wood flooring technology company, has introduced a hardwood flooring line with built-in technology designed to track and report on the flooring and subfloor’s environment.
The company, founded in the first quarter of this year, offers wood flooring with SmartPlank data recorders—which record floor temperature and relative humidity—embedded in the flooring. The data syncs with the company’s free app, allowing the user to monitor the ambient conditions to make proactive modifications before damage can occur.
In a release announcing the new flooring line, the company said it is “working with multiple hardwood flooring manufacturers in the U.S. to produce the planks, which can be customized for finish, color and texture. The SmartPlank sensor is compatible with both solid and engineered wood flooring as well as reclaimed wood.”
Flooring is available in thicknesses of 1/2 in., 5/8 in. and 3/4 in. inch, in widths from 2 1/4 to 11 in.
