Covid 19 Update Read More

We are open for business as usual (although there here is nothing usual about this situation) with our transport company (Brooks Transport) who are designated by the government as critical to the covid response. We are still delivering direct to door or site, (however collections or visits to the warehouse are not possible.) Our IT systems allow us to work from home so our staff are protected. Please Call or Email Us for samples or orders. Our factories are back to full capacity and the supply chain is operating effectively which can be seen here. As a trade supplier we have a minimum requirement of 50m2 for any samples and supplies. Please call 01666 504015 if you require less. For Government advice please click here. Even with these steps we have made, we must pull together, support one another, and get through this as a group, a family, and feel proud to say to our wider community we are critical to the Covid-19 response, and we will support it for as long as we are able. Stay safe, stay well, look after yourself, and each other.

Micro Bevel & Square Edged Wood Flooring

Micro Bevelled Floor Boards:

Our pre-finished wood floors that are lacquered or oiled on a production line generally have a micro bevel.  With the exclusion on certain specialist boards for example the E216.  

This ensures that the oil or lacquer fully protects the board on its edges, as well as preventing splintering during manufacturing.

The end view pictures below show a micro bevel on a lacquered board and one on a board that has been hand distressed (far right) to look like a reclaimed board.

Square Edged Floor Boards:

These are always unfinished wooden floors as there will be a tendency for the top edge of the board to splinter. If this happens, it can easily be repaired before the floor is finished. 

With unfinished boards, you have an infinite range of colours that you can use to suit your personal taste and decor.  For more information on finishing wood floors please see Applying Oil on Wood Floors and Finishing Colours and Oils

The pictures below show the square edge from both the top and the side.
