Create design impact with wide board timber flooring
Boral Timber has introduced a wider board option to its engineered flooring portfolio, available in the popular Australian hardwood species of Blackbutt and Spotted Gum. The new Boral Engineered Wideboard Flooring comes in 186mm wide 1 strip boards featuring a matte sheen brushed finish that highlights the natural colour and features of the timber.
“Open plan interiors and larger living spaces are ideal for integrating the wide board look,” said Boral Timber national sales and distribution manager, Leon Travis. “Engineered flooring has become a popular choice for both new build projects and renovations, delivering a striking timber floor with the benefit of a quick and easy installation over many surfaces. Homeowners now have the option of two popular widths – 134mm and 186mm wide boards – to create a stunning room makeover, or update flooring throughout their house or apartment.”
Pre-finished with seven layers of 10 per cent matte sheen UV cured acrylic coating, the 4mm nominal hardwood top layer allows resanding and recoating for a long service life. The board has a 4 side Uniclic 14mm profile for a tight board-to-board fit and a smooth consistent finish. The new wider boards are also offered in a 2.2m length which is longer than the 134mm boards.
Boral Engineered Wideboard Flooring can be laid over a level subfloor such as a concrete slab, particleboard or plywood sheeting, old timber floors and tiles. A variety of quality underlays can be installed with the flooring to address floor levelling, cushioning and any acoustic concerns.
