Messmate, scientifically known as Eucalyptus obliqua, is an Australian native hardwood that has gained recognition for its exceptional qualities as a flooring material. With its rich, warm tones and distinctive grain patterns, Messmate flooring has become a favored choice among homeowners, designers, and builders alike.

The hallmark of Messmate flooring is its captivating appearance. The wood exhibits a beautiful range of colors, from pale straw and light brown to deeper reddish-brown hues. This natural variation adds character and depth to any room, making it a versatile choice for various interior aesthetics. The prominent grain patterns, featuring growth rings and gum veins, create a unique and organic feel that is both visually appealing and authentic.

Messmate is renowned for its durability, making it an excellent option for high-traffic areas in homes or commercial spaces. Its dense composition and hardness allow it to withstand the rigors of daily life, making it resistant to wear, scratches, and dents. Properly maintained, Messmate flooring can last for decades, making it a sound investment for any property.

Messmate flooring complements a wide range of design styles, from modern and minimalist to rustic and traditional. Its warm and inviting ambiance can seamlessly integrate into various decors, offering the flexibility to adapt to evolving interior preferences.

Sourced from responsibly managed forests in Australia, Messmate flooring aligns with sustainable practices. It is a renewable resource, harvested with care to minimize environmental impact, making it an eco-friendly option for those who value sustainability.


Janka rating, also known as Janka hardness test, is a measure of the hardness of wood. It is a standardized test that measures the amount of force required to embed a small steel ball into a piece of wood. The Janka rating is expressed in kN (kilonewton), and the higher the rating, the harder the wood.

The Janka rating is commonly used to determine the suitability of a particular wood species for use in flooring, furniture, and other applications where durability is important. Some woods with high Janka ratings include Brazilian Walnut, Hickory, and Brazilian Cherry, while woods with lower Janka ratings include Pine and Cedar.

It is important to note that while the Janka rating can provide a useful indication of a wood's hardness, it does not necessarily reflect other important characteristics of the wood, such as its resistance to decay, its stability, or its appearance.
