Get the best wear depth with Horner’s Long Life™ Flooring!
Longer Wear Life. Ecologically Sound.
Horner Flooring Company has long been an ecological leader within the sports flooring industry. It was one of the first manufacturing mills to advocate the benefits of 25/32″ flooring over the previously-used industry popular of 33/32″ flooring. Now it’s the first to offer an extended wear life 25/32″ product with the introduction of its Long Life™ Flooring product.
Specify Long Life
Benefits of Long Life:
- Extended Wear Life
- Ecologically Responsible
- Increased Availability
- Cost Savings
- Ease of Application
Horner’s Long Life™ Flooring offers the ecological, cost savings and availability benefits of standard 25/32″ product but with the extended wear life of 33/32″ flooring. Long Life™ Flooring can be used over any Horner system utilizing at least one single layer of 15/32″ plywood or 7/16″ OSB or other manufacturer approved subfloor.
Double the wear life of the 25/32″, without the cost of 33/32″!
Horner’s Long Life™ Flooring is more ecologically sound as it minimizes wood waste when a floor has reached maximum wear depth. This is accomplished by shifting the tongue and groove assembly down, resulting in a higher proportion of flooring thickness being dedicated to wear depth. Less lumber is consumed for 25/32″ product, regardless of wear depth, than is consumed for 33/32″ product.
Horner’s Long Life™ product is an excellent candidate to be submitted for a LEED© Innovation & Design Process Credit!

We were lucky to have some very special guests, the Horner family, right here at our headquarters! Here at Horner, we have embraced our rich history and were extremely honored to be able to accommodate the Horner family. In 1891, William Horner became the very first manufacturer of maple hardwood flooring and we were so happy to have his descendants with us here in Dollar Bay!
The Michigan Tech School of Forestry and Wood Products has recently expanded the U. J. Noblet Building with the addition of Sam Horner Hall. Sam Horner, son of William Horner, built the nation’s largest hardwood flooring mill in Newberry, Michigan. Later on, in 1938, the Horner Flooring Company mill was
built in Dollar Bay, Michigan where it remains today.
We are proud to carry the Horner family name
with the same values and ethics since 1891.
The Horner Family made a visit to Sam Horner Hall!
