Robust Quality

Guaranteed stability

Outstanding structural integrity in relative humidity levels ranging from 25% to 70% that could cause warping in solid wood floors, making TruBalance Lite a convenient choice over radiant heating systems and in below-grade rooms.

Versatile Installation

Tongue-and-groove boards with milled bevels along all four edges are suitable for 1/2” installation, fit easily together, and can be either glued, floated, or stapled down over an approved wooden subfloor and on any level of your home, whether below, on, or above grade.

Engineered boards for stable, even floors that are beautiful and built to last

TruBalance Lite boards combine cutting-edge flooring technology with carefully chosen materials to deliver the best quality and enhanced stability for your home at the right price. Each board is precision-milled to exact measurements to ensure consistency from board to board for easier installation and a uniform floor.

Their 3-ply construction makes TruBalance Lite boards more resistant to fluctuating humidity levels that could result in warping or cupping in solid wood boards exposed to the same conditions.

The sturdy, cross-layered construction offers many advantages.

3 mm Sawn Hardwood Lamella

The 3 mm top wear layer made of genuine hardwood highlights the natural beauty of wood. True to Mirage's reputation and commitment to quality and sustainability, the hardwood used for TruBalance Lite boards is processed from responsibly harvested wood by a proudly North American manufacturer. TruBalance Lite is currently available in two highly durable wood species: White Oak and Oak.

Protective DuraMatt® finish

The top sawn-hardwood lamella layer has a superior protective DuraMatt® finish designed to stand the test of time. This exclusive silky matte finish contains antimicrobial agents for a safe environment and offers 20 times more wear resistance than conventional oil finishes. The DuraMatt® finish ensures you get your money’s worth with a 35-year warranty on finish wear-through for residential applications and a 3-year warranty for light commercial applications. 

SPF Core

The 9 mm SPF core layer mounted on a high-quality 2 mm wood backing board is composed of locally sourced materials that lower the eco-footprint without compromising quality. The SPF core layer comprises multiple thin strips of wood made from fast-growing species, placed side by side to provide extra rigidity against warping. The wood strips are positioned crosswise from the direction of the wood fiber in the top sawn-hardwood lamella layer to reinforce the structure by restricting the amount of movement in the hardwood as humidity levels vary

Overall thickness of 9/16"

The overall 9/16” thickness of TruBalance Lite boards is ideal for flooring projects that include tiles, as the thicknesses match. Thanks to its ample stability, TruBalance Lite can be made into wider boards for even more floor styling options.

Affordable installation for longer-lasting floors

Years of research and unparalleled know-how have led our team of engineers to develop this affordable technology that adds value to your home. Your floors will last for years, and flexible installation methods save you time. 

With a relative humidity tolerance ranging from 25% to 70% for glued and stapled installations and from 30% to 60% for floated installations, TruBalance Lite can be installed on every level of your home, whether below, on, or above grade. If you are looking for one product you can use throughout your home, TruBalance Lite makes shopping for floors easy. 

If you have questions about hardwood flooring installation,
please contact our Technical Department by phone at 1 800 463-1303 or contact us here. Our team of experts is standing by to assist you.

TruBalance Lite can be installed over radiant heating systems without the risk of gapping between the boards. TruBalance Lite products can be glued down, floated over a recommended membrane, or attached with 18 GA staples using the appropriate tool. 

Each box of TruBalance Lite products contains assorted board lengths for a great look and quicker installation. While the tongue-and-groove configuration of the boards makes them easy to fit together, the milled bevels on all four edges of each board (called a micro-V joint) allow for a better fitting during installation and prevent dust and dirt buildup once the flooring is installed.

Mirage Floors also offers a variety of accessories, such as stair nosings and reducers, for trims that give your flooring installation a professional look.

Endless alluring patterns:
a unique way to customize your floors

If you want to go with a more conventional style for your home design, Linear boards in either 5″ or 7″ widths will always look stunning. However, Herringbone hardwood flooring in a 5″ width is an eye-catching way to introduce bold patterns into your home design. 

Herringbone, a timeless classic, is making a stylish comeback in contemporary design with its majestic, staggered zigzags. This geometric pattern offers a fresh and unique twist on hardwood flooring customization. 

Bolder layout options are available in the Herringbone Collection. Unleash your creativity with six different shapes that breathe life into unusual patterns and make symmetry come to life.

Double Herringbone

Whether as wall-to-wall patterns or inlays in specific sections of flooring, Herringbone boards provide limitless layout options to refine any setting and redefine your space by introducing visual divisions. 

For an even bolder statement, mix and match TruBalance Lite hardwood floorboards. Combine Linear and Herringbone patterns or alternate between 2 or 3 colors for mesmerizing effects that inject depth and personality into your room.
