Hevea Brasiliensis is a plantation hardwood timber that shares the same high density and strength as White Oak which is native to the US. It is, therefore, an excellent, environmentally sound substitute for Oak and other slow-growing hardwood species.

We use Hevea Brasiliensis to create the core of our flooring because it provides greater dimensional stability and can withstand external pressure (such as temperature, moisture and air) to change.

This ensures that the all-important core in our multi-layer engineered floors is stronger and more reliable than other species which are found in cheaper products.

HEVEA – AT THE HEART OF OUR FLOORS

  • Hevea brasiliensis is a plantation hardwood timber known for its density and durability.

  • Using Hevea to create our specially formulated core ensures our engineered flooring is strong, stable and durable.

  • Hevea is a renewable plantation hardwood species so it’s also planet friendly.

Core Structure

SCIENTIFICALLY FORMULATED FLOORS ENGINEERED FOR LIVING

  • Intelligent engineering within the Hevea core means once installed our flooring will sense and acclimatise to its surrounding environment to create the perfect fit.

  • The scientifically formulated Hevea core ensures our floors can withstand external pressure to change. Our floors are less likely than traditional timber flooring to expand, contract or move when exposed to moisture, humidity or temperature extremes.

  • Incorporating a Hevea core enables us to provide the dimensional stability needed to make the beautiful 400mm wide planks favoured by interior designers and homeowners worldwide.

  • No unpleasant surprises! Our wood is treated with natural mineral pesticide that is safe for family and pets to eliminate fungi and borer pests.

Composition

THE WHOLE IS GREATER THAN THE SUM OF ITS PARTS

From foundation to precious hardwood surface each individual layer of our engineered flooring is best in-class. Together the result is unparalleled.

Hevea Brasiliensis - layers

Top Coat 

  • Our finishes include a large range of colours and stains which are protected with premium top coats of either 7 layers of scratch resistant UV urethane or 3 layers of UV oil.

Hardwood Surface

  • From Oak to Ash, Maple to Walnut to Wenge we have a huge range of sustainably sourced, stunning hardwoods to choose from.

  • We only product premium quality products and, unlike other flooring suppliers, we do not use veneers.

  • Our wide choice of beautiful hardwoods is available in surface thickness of either 3.2mm or 6mm.

  • Our hand-crafted surface treatments and textures combine artisanal detail with the latest technology to create a floor that is unique to your home.

Core Layer

  • At the heart of every floor is our specially formulated pattern of Hevea hardwood which gives our flooring its core strength and stability.

Foundation Layer

  • The final timber foundation gives additional stability and durability to the floor.
