WOOD FLOORING - OAK
SELECT YOUR GRADE
The Timberwise selection covers different grade options that indicate the extent to which the wood’s own patterns and knots are visible in the board. This is a key part of the floor selection process, and requires particular attention:
> OAK SELECT
The Select grade is carefully selected, more evenly coloured, and almost knotless. The grade allows the filling of pin knots, the natural reflective pattern of oak, i.e., the pattern created by the medullary rays of the tree, and the colour variation caused by the grain pattern.
> OAK CLASSIC
Classic is a natural-looking grade in which the natural grain pattern and colour variation of the wood is clearly visible. The natural knottiness of wood with a few small knots is allowed within the Classic grade. The Classic grade also allows small knot groups, the so-called cat paws, as well as the filling of knots and the natural reflective pattern of oak, i.e., the pattern created by the medullary rays of the tree. NOTE! The surface treatment might affect the tone and outlook of the putty area.
> OAK VINTAGE
The Vintage grade contains filled cracks and healthy black knots of various sizes. The number of knots filled knots, and filled cracks vary. Black fillings are part of a genuine vintage look. NOTE! The surface treatment might affect the tone and outlook of the putty area. Small depressions in the filled knots and cracks are also allowed. The grade is characterized by the natural colour variation of oak from light to dark. The general appearance of the Vintage grade is impressive, rough, and rustic.
