Description

The fusion of strength, toughness and stiffness is not commonly seen in any other timber flooring products. Hickory timber is hardened by nature and will withstand the rigours of today’s busy lifestyles.

With a similar texture to European Oak, unique and warm colour palette and high level stability and durability, Hickory hardwood meets all the criteria.

The top layer (lamella) is rustically fashioned using a new chisel cut technique, which highlights the knots, crackers, bird pecks and mineral streaks of the natural timber.

Hickory is manufactured using the Tongue & Groove (T&G) joining system, creating a rustic appearance along the edges of the board. The round edges replicate the floor from the antique impressionist era of the 17th century. In addition, Hickory’s T&G joining system replicates the installation of solid timber flooring.

Hickory hardwood floors will stand the test of time, and provide an elegance and rustic charm to any home.
