Flooring - Tasmanian Oak: The Wide Board Experience
Now available in 133, 160 and 185mm widths. Premium wide board flooring – once the exclusive province of imported timbers – is now available in fine Tasmanian Oak from Britton Timbers.
Today, the wide board 'look' is all the rage in upscale residential and commercial developments. At Britton’s mill, the best Tasmanian Oak is quarter-sawn to enhance the clean-grain look of this blond timber. Due to its renowned stability as a flooring timber that few other Australian species can match, Tasmanian Oak lends itself perfectly to wide board flooring applications. Britton Timbers' manager Shawn Britton says the mill's wood machinists 'love' the product.
"Our long-time wood machinists are used to working with magnificent Tasmanian timbers, but when it came to machining the wide (185mm) Oak, our head machinist – the man responsible for Britton Timber's Australia-wide reputation for the highest quality machining – described the finished flooring as 'gorgeous'.
Architects and designers would agree. Wide board flooring is now going into Australia's finest homes – and Britton's is a premium home-grown product that compliments thoughtfully planned, modern interiors.
Shawn says boards in 133x19, 160x19 and 185x19mm sizes are now available from Britton's sales and distribution centres in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
"Tasmanian oak wide board flooring is new to our already extensive range, and we expect to see it installed in a range of situations where a definite 'wow' factor is required."
