"Recycled" has become a bit of a buzz word in design and where timber is concerned, with good reason!
As well the obvious environmental advantages of using recycled flooring, the physical and aesthetic aspects shine over those of new timbers.
Not only do the boards tend to be much longer in length and notably harder and more stable than new timbers, but the combination of both natural and man-made features in the boards is simply stunning.
Not to be confused with reclaimed flooring, which has been lifted from existing floors, recycled flooring is re-milled down from larger recycled or salvaged timbers sourced from all kinds of old buildings and structures. It is then "de-metaled"and machined with the precision of new floorboards to ensure strong and snug installations.
With our standard line of recycled in an 80 x 12mm or 80 x 19mm board, we keep our prices down and our quality up!
A hardwood timber floor has never been so environmental or economical!
Cost Effective Timber Flooring
We are proud to be able to supply recycled floorboards without adding the recycled price-tag!
Our recycled overlay hardwood floorboards allow us to supply a cost effective alternative to standard timber flooring, while keeping the environment in mind.
Separated into reds, creams or mixed hardwood floorboards, the species used in our hardwood timber flooring blends include timbers such as blackbutt, tallowwood, ironbark, blue gum and spotted gum to name just a few.
Grading of Recycled Decking and Flooring
Our range of recycled decking and recycled flooring are graded as "Run of the Mill" Grade.
As well as natural features such as knots, gum vein, insect markings, check splits and black spec allowable by Australian Standard AS2796, our recycled products may also display features such as nail, screw or bolt holes (clustered or isolated), black marks or discolourations from oxidisation, chisel marks and notches. We consider these markings to be an integral attraction of the product.
To achieve the long lengths we prize, as long as these "man-made" features have no structural defect on the board, we leave them all in and do not dock the boards to obtain "higher" grades. Our boards are graded on one face only.
Feel free to drop into our warehouse, or discuss the grading with our sales team.
The manufacturing process goes a little like this;
