Timber flooring is a biodegradable, natural product, sourced from a renewable resource. It is hypoallergenic so doesn’t trap dust, pollen or other allergens and is ideal for asthma sufferers and people with allergies.
Red Ironbark is a premium timber species keenly sought within Australia and overseas for its rich, distinctive red colour, its strength, durability, fire retardant and specialty, high value use. Harvested from natural regrowth stands, Red Ironbark has the most durable rating available (Class One) and is suitable for use in-ground for a minimum of 25 years, with a considerably longer life as flooring, cladding and decking. The deep red timber has a very high degree of natural resistance to fungal decay and termite attack and high resistance to the passage of electricity and ember attack.
White Ironbark, also known as Yellow Gum, is a medium-size forest tree with a straight, well-formed trunk with fine, fibrous bark at the base and smooth, grey, white or yellow bark on its upper trunk and branches. Its hard, strong and very durable wood has a Class Two durability rating and is yellow to pale brown with pink tints around features.
Grey Box is a medium to large forest tree common in Victoria, north of the great divide. It has a fine, weathered grey bark and prefers to grow in moister sites and hill slopes. It has been traditionally use for railway sleeper and fence posts because of it’s high durability and strength, but now it makes very attractive flooring for all to enjoy.
Sugar gum is a very dense, blond to tan, plantation grown native timber that polishes to a superb finish. Available through sustainable harvesting of mature stands, it also has a Class One durability rating and some trees produce very desirable grain features such as beeswing, birdseye and fiddleback. Sugar gum was one of the species originally suggested by Ferdinand von Mueller (who also named it) in the 1880s for direct seeding of the Western District’s treeless plains.
