Fumed Band Sawn Provincial Solid Oak Flooring
Our Fumed Band Sawn Provincial Oak Flooring is machined from sustainably-sourced solid European oak timber. After machining, the face of the boards are laterally sawn, creating a tactile, textured surface with a striking band-sawn appearance. The boards are then fumed, a chemical process which darkens the wood, creating a pleasing mix of dark oak shades. This rustic oak floor contains abundance of splits, checks and large knots which come filled with a durable resin filler as standard. Our optional Oiled finish produces a rich tone with a satin sheen.
Our Fumed Band Sawn Provincial Oak Flooring is supplied in single-width wide boards and random lengths, for full information see below.
We manufacture all our wood floors to order to ensure that every board is machined from the same batch of timber. Occasionally, the raw timber batch comes in to us a little wider or a little narrower than usual. Individual boards in each batch are always the same width but may not be exactly 150mm or 185mm.
Wide Board Oak Floors
Supplied as a single width wide board (i.e. each board you receive will be exactly the same width). The width supplied is dependent on timber availability at the time of manufacture, but is typically 185mm. Occasionally, the raw timber batch can be a little wider or narrower, but generally by not more than 5%. If you are matching up to a floor we've previously supplied, or if it is important to you that your boards are exactly 185mm wide, please contact us to discuss availability.
Our solid oak floorboards are supplied in random lengths, usually between 1.5m and 2.5m. Some boards may be supplied longer or shorter than that, depending on raw timber stocks at the time of machining.
Fumed Oak Floors
Fuming is a chemical process which darkens the oak in a natural way - and is provided as an alternative to staining. Different boards and different batches of timber will react differently to the fuming process, and as such the wood will not have a uniform colour. Photographs on the website and samples are provided for guidance only - we can not guarantee an exact colour match. If you wish to obtain a uniform dark tone we recommend the use of a stain rather than fuming.
All the raw timber we use is sourced from either PEFC or FSC certfied suppliers. The timber is kiln-dried to a moisture content of 8-11% and kept at an ambient temperature in our heated and humidity controlled factory. Our accurately machined floorboards are tongued and grooved on all four edges and can be laid as a structural, load-bearing floor, if required. Every wood floor is made at our premises here in Yorkshire by our skilled wood machinists who ensure that each board is extremely straight, flat and a pleasure to fit. Mass produced, imported floors are not made or quality controlled to the same high standards as a British Hardwoods wood floor.
