New option in timber flooring

BestWood-Flooring-Smoked-Oak-FlooringBestWood Flooring, supplier of solid timber floor boards and decking, engineered hardwood flooring and sports floor systems, has added Smoked Oak to its range of pre-finished engineered flooring.

The Smoked Oak flooring uses European oak which is smoked to produce a rich, dark colour that keeps the subtle variations in tone and the natural grain of the wood intact.

Like all BestWood’s pre-finished engineered floor boards, the Smoked Oak product comprises three layers of solid hardwood with a 4 mm top wear layer.

The boards are 14 mm thick, 136 mm wide and supplied in lengths of 2.1 m. All boards are treated with aluminium oxide and have a satin coating for added scratch resistance.

Smoked Oak joins the established range of pre-finished engineered flooring which includes maple, walnut and jarrah.

BestWood also supplies a range of solid wood 19 mm-thick tongue-and-groove floor boards, in lengths of up to 5.4 m, in Tasmanian oak, wormy chestnut and jarrah timbers.

All hardwoods used in BestWood floors are native to Australia or North America and are sourced from internationally recognised, sustainably managed forests, ensuring that all the products carry either the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) or PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes) mark.
