Solid wooden floors are split into two categories:
These have a top layer of real timber (which varies from.6mm to 3mm in thickness) and a Birch backing. The species mostly used is Oak, which can be stained, varnished and oiled.
This type of flooring is machined from real timber which we get from wood merchants into T&G (Tongue & Grove). These are either installed as a full bond glue system, on Elastilon or on battens, and never as a floating floor. Hardwood floors are sanded and sealed on site.
This is mostly found in raw Oak, which is then stained, varnished or oiled, to the colour of your choice. These are either pre-sealed, or can be sealed after they have been laid.
We also supply, engineered floors, in other species of wood such as:
• Hevea (which is used for sports floors).
There is a wide range of timbers which we can machine into T&G flooring. Some are African timbers, which are all sourced from sustainable forests.
The species most commonly used are:
• Baltic Pine
• Oregon Pine
These are furthered classified into two groups, the soft timbers, such as Pine and Saligna, and the hardwoods, which are Teak, Kiaat, and Merbau.
