ABOUT US

Our flooring is a process. 

From importing the slabs of timber from France we precisely mill the timber to suit each individual order. Floorboards are 19mm thick and are generally 130mm or 200mm wide. We can also supply widths up to 350mm. Lengths range up to 3.5 metres. We can also supply French Oak parquetry cut to suit each individual request. Chevron parquetry is very popular and large sizes are not a problem.

The timber is kiln dried to a moisture content of between 10% to 12%. All floorboards are end matched to ensure
a stable bond and floors are fully glued to ensure an exceptionally laid floor.

SUSTAINABILITY

Our focus is to ensure that the timbers we source are harvested from sustainable resources. We are proud
that our suppliers' principle is to promote the fastest practical process towards environmentally and socially
sound forestry management.

Good forest management principles were introduced as early as 1827 in France, with the adoption of Forestry Management and Administration code.

Sustainable management indicators provide a snap shot of the expansion of France's forest. The volume standing
timber is currently increasing each year 81,000,000 cubic metres. Given a harvest of 47,000,000 cubic metres
per year, the rate of felling is equal to 58% of the annual biological level. Such carefully planned felling preserves
the natural capital reserves of France's forest and timber resources.
