Weyerhaeuser has added a self-draining feature to its Edge Gold flooring panels to help eliminate standing water during construction delays. It consists of three “Down Pore” drainage grooves cut into one end of each panel. According to Weyerhaeuser, the grooves resist clogging from sawdust or adhesives, and allow water to drain even if the panels are not properly gapped. Panels are available in 5/8-, 23/32-, 7/8-, and 1 1/8-inch thicknesses. Prices are the same as for standard Edge Gold panels.
