Our Architect Collection is composed of an American Oak timber top layer bonded on to an engineered base to ensure stability. The boards come pre-finished with a near opaque white appearance, allowing the characteristics such as knots and variations of the grain of the timber to show through.
The boards are tongue and grooved on ends and sides. They are sold with a flat Aluminium Oxide, UV resistant, low VOC coating. 30% of product is sold as random shorts and product is graded ABCD which means some boards will be clean and others will feature knots.
Oak is a slow growing and beautiful natural resource. By using a 6mm, 4mm or 3mm top layer of American Oak instead of solid board the valuable oak species that is used stretches three times further. The engineered substrate is made from fast growing plantation timbers and provides a solid and incredibly stable base for the board. The oak forests are selectively felled and allowed to regenerate naturally. This product is available with the highest FSC Certification 100% Pure upon request.
Timber is a natural product. Colour will vary from printed versions and samples. Boards will vary across every floor. It is this variation that gives timber its natural beauty and appeal.
