Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9846843A1] A flat building element substantially consists of a highly water-resistant wooden material plate (2) provided with a plastic coating (4) on at least part of its top and/or bottom surface (5, 3). This element is designed as a wall or floor tile. Grooves (8) and springs (10) are provided at the edge surface (7) to secure and join several elements. The width (b) of the springs (10) is preferably larger than the depth (t) of the grooves (8), ensuring a particular, uniform joint width (bf) between the elements.
