Prime American Ash Solid Wood Flooring
Our Prime American Ash Flooring is machined from sustainably-sourced solid American ash timber. The wood is light in tone with a striking grain pattern.
Due to its unique nature our solid ash flooring is usually only available as a random width floor. Board lengths are generally between 2m and 3m but some may be supplied shorter than that, depending on timber availability at the time of machining.
The timber for our Prime American Ash flooring comes from the Appalachian Mountains of America. The wood varies from light blonde to creamy brown and it radiates a light and airy contemporary feel. It has been a favoured floor for many commercial and modern installations due to its strength and durability.
Our solid ash wood flooring is available in random width boards. Random width floors look extremely appealing and the effect can greatly enhance the appearance of the finished floor. The boards are usually supplied in a roughly equal linear meterage of 89mm, 114mm, and 140mm widths (though this may occasionally vary, depending on raw materials). When fitting a random width floor, you should lay full rows of each individual width. You will need to allow a little more wastage than when fitting a single width floor; we recommend a minimum of 15%.
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 8-10% and kept at an ambient temperature in our heated and humidity controlled factory. All our wood floors are manufactured to order, from the same batch of timber. We pre-plane the boards before final machining which results in accurately machined floorboards which are 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.
