Wood Flooring Designed for the Demands of Higher Education

Up to 300% more durable
than standard wood.

Colleges and universities face greater challenges more than ever before from attracting top-notch students to keeping their board of directors happy. Additionally, no benefactor wants to walk into the lecture hall bearing their name only to find that the floors are scratched, dented or worn looking. Many communal spaces in higher education are bound to receive large degrees of wear and tear from students, professors, and alumni day after day.

It’s why you need Nydree, a high performance flooring resource. Our acrylic-infused engineered wood flooring is up to 300% more durable than natural wood, and independent studies show that our Pedestrian 2.0 finish surpasses that of all other wood flooring when it comes to scratch and wear resistance. That means your designs will stand the test of time.


Nydree engineered wood flooring offers you:

Durability in design:

Choosing Nydree for your college or university is a smart investment that will keep those hallowed halls looking brand new for generations to come. And for a truly academic feel, consider using Nydree wood to cover ceilings or walls in your chosen space. No matter the size of the classroom or auditorium, you’ll create an inviting atmosphere for learning with a superior product.

Design flexibility:

Get creative; Nydree wood flooring is perfect for beveled edges, mitered walls and ceilings too. Nydree flooring can be installed above, at or below grade and glued to a variety of subfloors. Our in-house experts are trained in custom color creation. Nydree’s state-of-the-art color matching technology allows designers to submit a paint, fabric or furniture finish sample to draw out a specific color for a one-of-a-kind floor or wall.

Lower life cycle costs:

Compared to natural wood, terrazzo, or even commercial sheet vinyl, Nydree engineered wood flooring is significantly less expensive to own over the lifetime of the installation. Since it’s infused with acrylic, repair and refinishing costs are dramatically reduced requiring less care and virtually no replacement. Whether you choose the Handcrafted Collection or wire brush finish to give your design a rugged feel, your floor will still have a superior performance.

Avoid a specification failure.

The success or failure of every specification you make lives on long after the project is complete. Product failures can damage a firm’s reputation and become a financial disaster for a client. The true cost of a flooring failure is not just in the replacement; many properties must close while the new floor is installed, resulting in a significant loss of revenue. Specify Nydree and your clients (and your reputation) will thank you for years to come.


With Nydree, you can opt for a classic smooth finish or a wire brush finish to draw out the subtle texture of the graining. Or, if you are looking for an aged look, our Handcrafted Collection delivers. A variety of patterns and colors allows for limitless design possibilities, creating the foundation for a breathtaking destination.
