The projects using engineered wood flooring shown in this section each have their own story to tell, some like a good novel. Some were developed at the concept stage and in others we were asked to value engineer and supply from our existing extensive range of wood flooring available from our large stocks in the UK.
We get involved at the concept stage with the Architects and Interior Designers to create engineered wood flooring with very specific finishes and colours to match the conceptual interior finishes. We create sample mood boards for matching both hard and soft furnishings which then get approved by the client.
There is an infinite variety of finishes and colours that we can create, from fumed, light, medium and dark, to brushed and hand scraped.Apart from 50 shades of grey there are Oaks where you can change the tannins in the wood cell structure to create pure white boards or carbonise them to create red to black. Fuming uses the tannins in the wood to create warm brown colours, the longer the wood is left in the fuming chamber the darker the colour with more extreme colour variation as can be seen with our current E151 and E149 fumed engineered floors.
The boards specified for the Shell Building residential development were very lightly fumed to create a light warm colour. This has yet to be fitted out but the mocks up's have been finished with the E215 and also the E124 and we are in the process of acquiring pictures.
If you look at each section below you can see how each product was developed and also how we manage our supply chain to guarantee both quality and on time delivery to site.
Each batch that is produced has full quality control procedures and every single engineered board is stamped with the batch number which allows us full traceability should any problems occur during supply or after installation. To guarantee our boards after installation we recommend fitting the fidbox monitor which records the history of the moisture and humidity levels during and after installation.
