Wood Floor Planet has been an authorized dealer of Mirage wood floors for over 10 years, consistently supplying Mirage brand wood floors to builders, contractors and the end user throughout the NYC and NJ area including Manhattan, Hoboken, Jersey City and West New York.

The Mirage quality has surpassed the test of time on the quality of engineering manufacturing.

Wood Flooring Structure

Let’s start with the structure of their engineered products. The top layer also known as the “wear layer” is a dry sawn cut method in which the hardwood is precisely cut to the desired thickness of a 4mm thickness being one of the thickest wear layers in the flooring industry, each board is unique and there are no repetitive patterns. A 4mm wear layer can be sanded between 3 to 5 times in its future (for the exception of the Mirage Lock in which we will do a separate review).

Flooring Widths

The available widths that Mirage flooring has to offer includes 2- 9/16’’, 3- 5/16’’, 5’’, 6- 1/2” and they just released a width size of a 7- 3⁄4’’. Now please note that not all styles are available in all the different widths, please visit http://www.woodfloorplanet.com/engineered-hardwood/mirage-engineered.html and check available sizes by styles. All of the engineered construction type can be installed by floating and gluing over concrete, or stapling over a plywood sub-floor. Please make sure to follow Mirage’s floor installation and instruction guidelines at www.miragefloors.com/ENG/flooring-101/installation

Hardwood Finish

Now let’s talk about the finish. The Nanolinx HD finish in our opinion is clearer and more wear resistant than the competition. They also offer a Nanolinx HD commercial and DuraMatt Commercial that is even more wear resistant yet targeted for commercial use. It has antimicrobial agents for a more hygienic environment and easier to clean floor. Their finish comes with a 35-year warranty on all residential applications and an extended 3-year commercial warranty on their Nanolinx HD Commercial and DuraMatt Commercial.

Mirage Flooring Accessories

Mirage also offers all accessories for their flooring including transition moldings, reducers and stair nosings, they also provide maintenance and touch-up kits for all their sku’s of colors.

Mirage floors is absolutely one of our favorites of wood floor manufacturers. For more information please visit one of our showrooms in Manhattan NY or Weehawken NJ, near Hoboken and Jersey City.
