With a tick from the National Asthma Council of Australia, Mafi are quickly becoming Australia’s go to natural timber flooring choice. The many health benefits of mafi timber are attributed to the natural characteristics of wood, the all-natural oil finish, as well as the chemical free adhesives used in production.


Mafi floors are antibacterial, regulate humidity, filter the air of harmful dust and bacteria, and are completely chemical free helping to alleviate the effects of asthma and allergies. Timber is known to have hygienic properties that synthetic materials lack.
