The characteristics of our wood

Our wide selection of grades, colours, finishes and textures will help you create a vibrant, one-of-a-kind environment. Explore all of our customization options to find the combination that best suits your needs.

Our grades

The look of your floor depends on the grade you select. For example, it determines the plank length, colour variations and the presence of knots. Choose from our three grades to find the one that best suits the style of decor you dream of.

Character

Derived from the marriage between different grades, Character flooring adds a completely unique element to your decor. With warm variations of hue accentuated with rustic features, this grade recalls the floors of yesteryear.

Harmony

Harmony offers a grade of wood with less variations – an option that’s sure to please. The knots are the only natural aspect preserved in this grade, leaving you the leeway to create beautiful harmony between your floor and your more contemporary decor.

Nuance

The hardness of our species

In order to offer you a superior quality product, all our species are given the Janka test to determine the hardness of the wood and assess its resistance to penetration.

The Janka test measures the weight, in pounds, needed to drive a 0.44” steel ball into the wood.

Our textures

Our floors are produced with a brushed or smooth texture.

Brushed

The brushed texture reveals more contrast and hides the wear marks on your floor. It’s created using a wire brush that opens the grain of the wood. The use of this brush leaves delicate marks on the upper layer of the board to give it a beautiful, natural effect.

Smooth

Treat yourself to the elegance of wood in its pure state. For smooth flooring, no texture is added to the finished product. This is quite simply natural wood. Smooth textured floor is harmonious, sophisticated and classic.
