Shamrock’s New 5mm Wear Layer. Setting the New Standard for Unfinished Engineered Flooring
Shamrock Plank Flooring is proud to deliver a new standard in the production of our unfinished environeered flooring. To further add bottom line value to our customers, installers and refinishers, we are changing all of our 5/8″ and 3/4″ flooring to a full 5 millimeter wear layer thickness, before sanding, at no additional cost. Going above and beyond the industry standard of 3 to 4 millimeters provides a homeowner 4 to 5 re-sands on their engineered hardwood flooring, which is identical to the amount of re-sands of a solid hardwood floor.
At Shamrock Plank Flooring, we strive to be stewards of our environment in every way. Because the hardwood flooring industry has been evolving to become more eco-friendly and thus creating a need for more sustainable flooring products, Shamrock has been increasing production of quality American made environeered flooring options that are not only beautiful but also friendly to our planet.
As industry standards typically offer a 3 to 4 millimeter wear layer for engineered hardwood flooring, we have added a number of technological advancements to our manufacturing facilities that are allowing us to consistently deliver a superior product. We are passing the savings down as a thank you to our loyal customers. Shamrock Plank Flooring continues its legacy as an innovator in the hardwood flooring industry with over 100 years of experience.

The rich heritage of cattle ranches and their spirit for adventure was the inspiration for the new line. Rancho Madera is ½” Environeered flooring in a 7” width with long 1’ to 7’ lengths with heavy longer lengths. The hand detailing is done by a group of skilled artisans. The Rancho Madera Collection embodies the wind worn look of the old homesteads.

Shamrock’s Environeered Plank Flooring is the next generation of sustainable flooring. In an effort to extend nature’s precious resources, an engineered line of flooring was created and designed to be environmentally conservative. Shamrock’s Environeered flooring utilizes only ¼ of the hardwood used in solid flooring, preserving the same wear life and extending the use of our hardwood resources. The core is made from 7 layers of faster growing plantation grown premium Birch. This allows for increased structural stability of the flooring while minimizing the amount of hardwood harvested.

Congressman Childers Visits J.T. Shannon Lumber Co
The J.T. Shannon Lumber Company was proud to be a stop on U.S. Rep. Travis Childers’ “Jobs and Economy Tour” of Mississippi’s First District. The Congressman chose to visit our 30-acre hardwood flooring manufacturer because of our steady employment numbers and green initiatives.
Since our arrival in DeSoto County in 1982, J.T. Shannon Lumber Company has been a consistently strong part of the local economy. “We’re proud to see people like Mr. Shannon (President/CEO Jack T. Shannon, Jr.) and his family employ 170 families,” said Childers, in a statement to the Commercial Appeal. In addition to employing local labor, J.T. Shannon Lumber Company also uses lumber from local hardwood sawmills, including a facility located in Childers’ home county of Prentiss, MS.
International Sales Manager, Jack Shannon III, Executive Vice President Jim Garrard and General Manager Rudy Weaver accompanied the congressman on his tour of the facility, and explained our company’s commitment to green practices. “There’s a lot of misconceptions about the lumber industry,” said Weaver, who has been with J.T. Shannon Lumber Company for over 14 years, “but it was good for Childers to see that we are good stewards of the forest and that we do value our raw materials and our products.”
“Hardwood floors are a highly sustainable resource,” adds Shannon. “They last for decades with minimal care. When you factor in our low-waste manufacturing processes, they are a very environmentally friendly choice.”
We were honored to introduce Congressman Childers and his staff to our facility, our fine products and our exceptional team, who make us so proud.
