Grading & Tolerance Specifications

Grading & Tolerance Specifications

PRIME (A/B GRADE):
Some grain & colour variation, minimal sap, small sound knots allowed, moisture content 8% +/-2%.
RUSTIC (ABCD GRADE):
Natural grain & colour variation, contains sap, may contain fly holes, open knots (filled), surface splits, moisture content 8% +/-2%, grading is mixed so consistency of appearance cannot be guaranteed.
NATURAL OILED FLOORING:
Floors prefinished with clear Natural Oil may require a further application of hardwax oil after the floor has been installed.
ANTIQUE / DISTRESSED FLOORING:
Made to have an aged appearance; please note flooring gets damaged in this process which can cause splintering. The fitting of these boards may require some additional work such as planing of tongues & cleaning of grooves to facilitate the laying process. A final coat of clear Hardwax Oil is recommended to be applied after laying in order to fully seal the floor.
BESPOKE FINISHES:
Floors finished with a coloured oil or stain can have an uneven appearance due to sap and the grain density in timber and may vary from samples. This should be noted prior to purchase.
TOLERANCES:
Widths: +/-1mm, Lengths: +/-1mm, Thickness: +/-1mm, Bevel: 0.5mm, Lengths: average lengths of boards cannot be guaranteed.
PLEASE NOTE:
Wood is a natural product. We recommend an allowance of 10% waste when purchasing.
DELIVERY:
Please note that the carriers are contracted to deliver to the entrance of the premises specified. It is the Customers responsibility to ensure that the goods can be delivered to the room of their choice. Any damage to flooring delivered or shortages in quantity should be reported to the Company within 24 hours of delivery. Please do not sign for unchecked unexamined goods.
