Prime Canadian Maple Solid Wood Flooring
Our Prime Maple Flooring is machined from sustainably sourced solid Canadian maple timber. The wood has a very light tone with a subtle grain pattern.
Due to its unique nature our solid maple 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.
Our Prime Canadian Maple Flooring is extremely hard-wearing and looks superb in both traditional and contemporary settings. Traditionally used as a sports floor due to its high strength, it is also a popular choice for many homes and contrasts beautifully with dark furnishings. It has a light, subtle grain pattern and an even colour tone. The boards will mellow over time and develop a warm golden hue.
Our solid maple 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.
