Most floors become unsightly with age, wooden floors become more beautiful with age.
Every trace you leave on it tells a story.
That’s why people say, “Wood lives.”
And wood already has character when laying. This means that despite strict quality controls on individual planks growth-related peculiarities, such as drying hairline cracks, slight colour differences, etc. may occur. These natural characteristics cannot be completely excluded, but may not exceed 5% of the delivered quantity. For solid wood flooring, slight dimensional tolerances (+/- 0.25 mm) are commercially available and unavoidable.
Below we give you an overview of the sorting characteristics of the common wood species oak.
The definition of sorting regulations is based on 4 quality criteria:
Selekt: Occasionally smaller, healthy branches, natural wood colour, harmonious grain, growth-related colour differences, in principle pin-free.
Nature: Healthy, firmly established as well as partly medium and dissected branches, growth-related colour differences, in principle free of splinters.
Striking: Ausgekittete branches, larger firm knots, lively Struktur, colour deviations, smaller timber cracks, other holzarttypische features and cotter pin.
Rustic: ausgekittete branches, partly open branches, partly also troweled surface cracks, all wood type typical characteristics, wood cracks longitudinal and head, sapwood, technically perfect.
