The Residential section shows our Wood Floors in large developments, when we have been asked by Architects and Interior Designers to manufacture a specific finish and style to compliment the interior decor.
Please see our selection of wooden flooring projects that we have recently completed for restaurants.
Commercial and Leisure
The Commercial and Leisure section shows how we have developed specialist Wood Flooring for high traffic areas. This is to create themes where Leisure and Retail clients wish to establish a unique identity.
Oiled Wood Flooring
The latest natural plant oils for wood flooring are not only environmentally friendly but will give your floor the beautiful lustre and protection it needs.
After installation and completion of works any oiled floor should be cleaned with the Timberex Bio-C which is a Ph. neutral floor cleaner followed by a coat of maintenance oil. We recommend using the Satin Oil or the Satin Oil Gold, both of which will give the floor a rich lustre.
The best result is acquired by buffing the maintenance oil in using a Red or Beige buffing pad. This heats the oil allowing for better absorbtion giving you a beautifully smooth surface.
Parquet & Chevron Flooring
This type of flooring is very traditional when in olden times they used the smaller pieces of solid wood fixed onto a bitumen floor so that they could be pushed into the soft bitumen due to poor machining and normally hand hewn blocks.
With modern manufacturing techniques we can now make very accurately machined 10mm thick solid blocks for the overlay system or engineered wood blocks, which have tongue and grooves for easier and faster installation. You can see some examples of the different parquet flooring we currently manufacture.
We are in the process of increasing our range having invested in new state-of-the-art machinery to produce engineered parquet floors, both herringbone and chevron of the highest quality. Some of our newest products will not be shown here as fitted floors so please call us if you have a request for a specific size. Below is a list of the sizes we can make as engineered blocks.
Large Residential Development Projects
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.

We supply unfinished wood flooring in 189mm, 220mm wide and 260mm wide engineered boards. The surface of the engineered boards are very smooth and sanded to 120 grit with squared edges all around.
This means that only a light sand after installation will be required and if you have a very good fitter there may be no sanding at all. We only recommend Blanchon oils. The cost of finishing on-site would be between £15/m2 to £25.00 per m2.
There are new solid colour oils which mean you can create your own bespoke floor. Using coloured oils means the floor is easy to repair and maintain, unlike lacquered floors. Below are case studies of many of the installations completed using our unfinished engineered floors.
You can create a “river effect in your floor with two different colours like the Viking Museum, or the Science Museum in London where Blanchon Bare timber was used, as seen below.
